how we work

Our collaborative approach allows for unique design and innovative projects, while still honoring the past of the land, area, and surroundings.

We understand that change can be difficult for the existing communities. We work endlessly to ensure every voice is heard. Every idea – big or small – is carefully considered. Our projects are made better through those that live and work there. And we are able to provide a better-connected environment as a result.

We work close to home. We are neighbors too and want to ensure we can be good neighbors throughout the development with continued visits, meetings, workshops and events. Our core development region is west of the Colorado River, specializing in Southern California.

Our investors are part of the process every step of the way and that’s how we like it. We plan diligently with our team of highly experienced experts to provide accurate timelines, budgets, and plans.


New Urban West has really set the bar extremely high. This is a model of how a developer and his team should work with the community. In fact, you may even want to give training lessons. This is one of the best designed projects that I have ever seen. This is a high quality project and there is no question in my mind it’ll be a huge asset to this area.
