Urbane DevelopmentUrbane Development Contact: Sunil Narayan
Urbane Development (Urbane) is a community development venture and certified MBE based in New York City. Founded in 2008, Urbane cultivates innovative solutions to build dynamic neighborhoods and positively impact underserved communities. We specialize in helping enterprises, entrepreneurs, and anchor institutions in underserved communities take their businesses and organizations to the next level. It is our strategy for creating local wealth and a way to begin to address the social inequity caused by a failure in the marketplace to provide quality, affordable goods and services in dynamic, diverse, but underserved communities.
We provide our clients with market intelligence and analytics, community and stakeholder engagement support, technical assistance platforms, and place-based investment that create value for their enterprises and communities. Our team is comprised of a creative and diverse team reflective of their talents and interests in economic development, public policy, small business strategy, and real estate development/management.
Our work was born out of the world of Healthy Retail, and while we have since become more holistic in our approach, we continue to incorporate, work and advise on Healthy Retail intiatives and businesses across the nation in various capacities and scales.
