STRATEGIC ADVISORY_

Urban’s directors provide specific strategic advice regarding a client’s individual assets, entire portfolios and scheduled works programmes.  Urban has an enviable track record of working closely with top 10 ASX-listed property funds, government and non-government organisations and some of the country’s most dynamic private developers and land owners.

Through our extensive feasibility study, detailed programming and design and planning knowledge and experience, we ensure a considered and accurate project assessment.

Urban works continuously with some of Australia’s leading property lawyers, valuers and financial institutions across all of our projects. This robust network of industry experts ensures our advice is of the utmost relevance to all current property fundamentals.

We want to spend time with you to ensure we extensively understand your desired development outcomes and thoroughly review and actively improve procurement and management processes to provide strategic direction and solutions.

ACQUISITIONS AND DISPOSALS_

Since the very beginning, Urban has led clients in the due diligence, site and yield assessment of hundreds of millions of dollars worth of development opportunities.

Through our network of agents and property professionals alike, we successfully introduce and acquire millions of dollars worth of property each year on behalf of our clients and investors in both off market and listed campaigns.

Having worked closely with some of the Australia’s largest commercial landowners and developers, Urban also assists in the strategic disposal of key assets. Our approach is to make your asset as palatable to the market as possible through:

  • – improving its yield
  • – de-risking the asset through commissioning and compiling commercially astute site studies and facilitating clean up and remediation works; and
  • – maximising its yield through sensible, achievable and fundable development and planning approvals.

We believe it is imperative to undertake these activities ahead of the appointment of a carefully selected sales team and considered marketing campaign.

Our record shows that this dedicated work up front is a real point of difference in improving the goals of vendor and developer alike.

DEVELOPMENT MANAGEMENT_

Urban’s business model services publicly listed ASX property trusts and single entity private developers alike. In many cases our clients may be looking for a team of professionals to solely undertake superintending services, or to act entirely autonomously in the delivery of the project from its acquisition through to project handover, centre opening or apartment settlement.

Our new clients very soon see the real benefits and bottom line results in involving Urban as development managers right from the beginning of a project.

In this regard our directors and senior managers, lead, direct and facilitate all facets of the project delivery cycle. The client can be as intensely involved or as removed in the project as they wish, but they can always take comfort in the fact that Urban’s systems, reporting, management, property knowledge and experience is exemplary across all aspects of the role. This includes:

  • • establishing the project with the right consultant team, commercial structure and legal framework;
  • • assessing yield in the concept stages of development;
  • • achieving fundable development outcomes;
  • • negotiation and strategic engagement with authorities and key stakeholders;

co-ordinating sales, leasing and marketing campaigns.
