Expectations are always higher for Urban Retail.  We continue to expect more of ourselves - More Innovation, More Communication & More Success.  Urban’s expertise in all aspects of property management makes us a strong partner.  Managing both performing and distressed properties requires a company who brings dedication and experience to the table.  With over 40 years in the shopping center industry, and in-depth experience across all market sizes, Urban knows how to make the most of an asset for our clients and our partners.


There are just a few operators in the industry who are experienced in every facet of mall management from leasing (national, regional and local) to property and facility management.  We have the capability to offer both national expertise and local broker relationships to meet the needs of any property.  The majority of our business is focused on third party management.  We have significant past and current institutional client experience.  We understand that every Client is unique and how to provide the highest level of service, bringing decades of experience and best practices to the table.


We know how to manage the takeover of a property and immediately stabilize it through revenue enhancements and cost reductions.  Because we are a vertically integrated company, we have the ability to react quickly on a discipline-by-discipline basis. We hit the ground running, work closely with the on-site property team to stabilize the asset as quickly as possible, and make recommendations to the Owner.


Expect More From Urban Retail, We Do Every Day.
