Ram-Land Limited is a member of the Ram-Land Group of companies - a forward-thinking fully integrated real estate organization. Our origins date back to 1946 when our founder,
Albert Melchior Sr., started his first construction company.
From humble beginnings building single-family homes, the company progressed into larger, more complex high-rise residential projects. Success in these areas then led us to
expand our scope even further into commercial and institutional ventures. Over the years, we have partnered
with other prominent developers to expand the breadth of our project portfolio and establish a long history
of successful collaboration.
Ram-Land is a development management firm that is committed to creating the highest quality projects that leave a lasting legacy. We are dedicated to the next generation of development and focus on sustainability, innovation, and excellence. Our experienced team has a long-standing history of success and is passionate about creating projects that leave a lasting impact.
Today, the Ram- Land Group has grown to include separate divisions that specialize in development, construction, and seniors housing.
Our vision is to build on our 75+ years of experience in order to continue the legacy of leadership in the real estate development sector established by our founder.
Our Executive Team

This construction experience has proven invaluable as Randy practices his specialty of site acquisition and development taking the raw land, obtaining all municipal requirements so as to move the development through to pre-construction.
