Urban Villages is a real estate development and property management company that focuses on long-term value generation through place-oriented design and detail-oriented operations. A boutique-style company, we help owners maximize investment returns and build legacy asset portfolios.
High Measures and Intention
Urban Villages sets and implements the highest standards for planning, design, development, and management. Focused on generating long-term value, Urban Villages creates and manages properties that last for lifetimes.
No two Urban Villages projects are alike. They vary widely in scale, location, property type, strategy, and configuration. Yet all share a singular approach: dedication to place-based development and management that respects local context and enhances the human habitat through a holistic view of past, present, and future.
Traditional Urban Design
Urban Villages employs the best practices of traditional urban design and ecological planning to create neighborhoods and communities that support regional planning, balance economic needs with environmental concerns, and are designed for diverse use and transit methods. The firm regularly consults and teams with leading design and sustainability practitioners, including town planners, architects, engineers, consultants, and visionary thinkers.
Principles of Traditional Urban Design
Personalized Management and Service
Urban Villages recognizes the importance of personalized management and service as it relates to asset value. A property can be made or broken on tenant satisfaction, attractiveness to the community, and quality of maintenance. We focus on the relentless pursuit of quality service for the groups and individuals that live, work, and play in our communities and buildings.
From landscaping to transportation, from materials selection to construction practices, from design to management, the work of Urban Villages is guided by principles of resource conservation, materials reduction, and restorative design. Planning and operation that respects the asset and all of its stakeholders lead to places that are beloved and enduring.
