Urban Villages was founded on the principle of creating and maintaining value for generations. Time has shown that centrally located properties are best positioned to weather cyclical downturns and increase value over time. As natural resources diminish and the associated environmental impact of their exploitation becomes more widely understood, cities will continue to densify in an effort to reduce our ecological footprint. Central locations allow close connections to the essential services and activities of life, which means less energy spent on transportation. This makes urban real estate a strong long-term investment opportunity and the core focus of Urban Villages.
