About UD+P

Steven Pontes, Avi Ben-Zaken, and Eric Cress founded Urban Development + Partners in 2006, leveraging their combined experience in real estate acquisition, construction, and management along with their shared interest in adaptive reuse projects. The partners also shared a vision for a sustainable business model—one in which the interests of management would be aligned with the interests of investors, tenants, the local community, and the environment. With those values in mind, over the past decade, UD+P has developed and acquired 28 properties—raising the bar for green building practices, ethical investing, customer service, and community outreach along the way. UD+P currently controls and manages over 390,000 sq ft of real estate across 16 properties. As a vertically integrated company, they shepherd each project through the full lifecycle: finance, design, construction, and management. Their expertise extends to a range of property types including adaptive reuse, mixed use, residential, and office.
