History

Urban Partners has been connecting people and property for more than 30 years. Our history spans two generations, during which time we've built a reputation for taking the long view on commercial property development and investment.

Originally called Retail Holdings, we are a privately held company with an enviable track record of delivering the highest quality projects. In 2014, we changed our name to Urban Partners to reflect our vision of transforming urban spaces into visionary places for generations to come.

While our name has changed, our core values and philosophy have not. We remain committed to creating value for our customers through considered long term investment. Since 1983, we've been investing in properties whose true potential may not be easily recognised by others. We have developed them over time through quiet exploration and persistence.

History has shown that we understand the fundamentals that drive the property industry, so you can be assured that you're in safe hands. From vision to realisation, Urban Partners connect people and property.  Working with the community, we seek to build equity in urban spaces with a steady approach, bringing the right balance of expertise and experience to a project.

Leveraging the strong portfolio of recreational and retail precincts from Retail Holdings,  Urban Partners works on development projects as diverse as data centres and medical facilities, through to specialist residential projects

Urban Partners' real capital is its people. We continue to attract and retain great people with a depth of experience that have made us a leader in property development and investment in New Zealand.
