UP Development implements development projects in both new construction and expansions/renovations. We manage all aspects of retail and office development projects, including feasibility, design and construction.
We approach each project from an owner's perspective, the goal being to maximize value and create a long-term viable asset. We ensure that ownership's dollars are spent wisely and that the project is completed on schedule and on budget.
UP Development is comprised of a highly experienced staff whose average tenure in the industry exceeds 25 years.
UP Development assigns a Development Manager to each project. The function of the Development Manager is three-fold:
To manage the process from the initial feasibility, through design and construction, to project opening
To be the single point of contact for the client
To coordinate the efforts of the other Urban Retail Departments: Leasing, Management, Marketing, Tenant Coordination
Our philosophy is to be actively involved in all aspects of the development process, especially in the major steps of feasibility analysis, design, contractor strategy/selection, and construction management. Even in those areas where a highly experienced consultant is performing the task, the Development Manager, working with Management and Leasing, will thoroughly review the work product and challenge the consultant to provide alternative solutions where appropriate, and to optimize the final product.
