URBAN INTERNATIONAL (UI) is an innovative real estate planning and development consulting company acting as owner’s representatives and urban strategists for entertainment, culture, resort, and tourism development throughout the world. Through the organization and development management of multi-disciplinary teams, UI specializes in design and development strategy, feasibility, concept development, positioning and branding, value creation, and implementation and financing strategy advisement.

Founded in New York City in 1996, with offices on Fifth Avenue, UI was formed in response to the rapidly changing environment of 21st century real estate development throughout the world. With the partner’s backgrounds and history in the development many of most successful public / private partner-ships in the world, such as the US World Financial Center and Battery Park City in New York and the redevelopment of the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort and the Nanshan Cultural Tourism Zone in Sanya, China, UI understands that destinations of all types are in the business of making and marketing themselves. Through new alliances, partnerships, branding and image, and a new investment infrastructure of complicated standards, agreements, and associations, property development has become increasingly complex. UI believes that a comprehensive approach to the management of the development process and investment potential is necessary for the successful financing, implementation, and operation of large-scale resort and entertainment projects.

Ongoing work includes culture, theme park, entertainment, and resort and tourism development in China, project re-positioning and development throughout Asia, entertainment district strategic planning and development in the US, as well as investment / advisement to “start-up” Real Estate online financing companies in New York and Shanghai.
