Our Edge

New Developments

We strive to push boundaries and create high design, contextual properties that provide opportunities for retailers, offices and residents. Our vision and approach adapts with and predicts the changing needs of a neighborhood.

Past developments include Soho Mews, a 170k SF luxury condominium development in SoHo; and the Offerman House, a 150k sf apartment house in a former turn of the century, landmarked department store.

UAL has two new and exciting boutique office developments planned for SoHo in the coming years. 430 West Broadway (below), located between Spring and Prince, will feature retail and office space. 419 Broadway (right), located on the corner of Broadway and Canal, will similarly feature retail and office space; this development will serve as a beacon, bridging Canal Street with SoHo.

Preservation

Our commitment to preserving the historical value of our properties has been a cornerstone of our ethos. We take incredibly complex restoration projects and execute meticulous rehabilitations, turning historic properties into transformational adaptive reuses. Over half of our portfolio falls under jurisdiction of the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission.

Understanding Our Tenants' Needs

We understand the needs of our commercial tenants, whether it's boutique, mass market, or big box retailers, as well as our creative office tenants. Our team is fully involved with our tenants’ development team's to build bespoke environments that reflect their needs. 
Our principals have close relationships with our tenants and go the extra mile to make sure they succeed — the success of our tenants is our success.

Community Arts

In partnership with arts organization Wallplay, UAL developed a district for pop-ups for brands, artists & startups to test out new ideas and engage with the public. The OnCanal project has brought many artist and brands like Knickerbocker, Drake's, and Matchaful, to over a dozen previously vacant storefronts.
