Our Future is Modular

Urban Renaissance Development is a property development company that dares to push the boundaries of innovative design and construction. Our modular developments are unique in character and inspired by the nuances of their surroundings. We build homes that are more than just places to live—they are integral parts of the neighborhoods they inhabit.

We specialize in transforming seemingly ordinary or undesirable infill locations into vibrant communities, revitalizing entire neighborhoods. Our commitment to provide build-to-rent and for-sale modular housing for diverse mixed-income residents, seniors and students is at the core of our approach to urban development. At Urban Renaissance Development, we are constantly thinking ahead and pushing the boundaries of what’s possible and sustainable. Join us on our journey to create exceptional modular communities that inspire and enrich the lives of all who call them home.
