Urban began life as a family business building family homes. Over three decades later, we still do – but the scale and ambition of our developments has grown alongside Sydney’s thriving property market.
From building townhouses and dual occupancy homes to designing and developing masterplanned communities and multi-storey, mixed-use towers, we’ve grown into a multi-disciplinary organisation with development, design and construction teams, as well as property management and customer service lines.
What we do
How we work
We embrace difference
We’re big believers in the power of people – and what we can achieve together. So whether we’re working team-to-team, partnering with external consultants and architects, or having a conversation with our community, we take an open, collaborative approach.
We go out of our way to seek out different partners with different ways of working and different ideas, because that diversity makes our developments stronger, more innovative and better to live in.
Built for life
Urban Places is our Build-to-rent and property management arm. We pride ourselves on creating and managing great residential communities, with better services and more amenities, at a fair price. We deliver them by listening to our tenants, working with ingenuity, prioritising innovation and rolling our sleeves up. All with the goal of making excellence an everyday experience.
At Urban Places, we believe in building homes that make life better for the people who live in them – however long they choose to lease with us.
