Urban Investment Partners ("UIP") is a real estate investment, asset and property management company specializing in multi-family properties exclusively in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Since 2001, UIP has provided quality housing that satisfies the most discerning residents and investors.

Utilizing superior market knowledge and vertical integration allows UIP to pinpoint underserved submarkets within the DC metropolitan area and strategically reposition properties. The ability to see ahead of the curve and identify catalysts in submarkets is paramount in adding tremendous value to undercapitalized assets.

Since 2001, UIP has created significant value for our investors through the repositioning of multifamily residential and mixed-use assets in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. The firm’s principals each maintain a unique and specific set of talents and insights into, what can be, a competitive, tenant favored rental environment. Washington DC’s unique rent control and other statutes offer opportunity for Residents and Investors alike and UIP’s central focus is on working with Tenants in DC to help them take advantage of their statutory rights, which also offers opportunity for strong, risk adjusted investment returns. As a locally focused apartment building owner, property manager, general contractor, and condominium developer, UIP boasts highly focused submarket knowledge, deep insights into “what Residents really want,”, our ability to reduce operating expenses to 25% of rental income, and an ability to generate record-breaking condominium sales figures. Whether ground-up condominiums or adaptive reuse of existing structures (typically purchased at less than replacement cost) for rent, UIP’s teams have the knowledge, hands-on experience and resources to transform mismanaged, Class-C properties into market rate, Class-A communities, as well as to take advantage of opportunistic infill development opportunities.

The synergy created by UIP’s vertical integration (Development, Asset Management, Property Management, and General Contracting, all under one roof) results in unparalleled expertise and throughput – “from inception to lease-up” –;acquisition, entitlement/development, and management of multifamily properties in DC and the surrounding MSA. UIP’s realized and existing portfolio ranges from urban infill development in emerging and core neighborhoods in DC, to suburban assets within close proximity to major employers and public transportation. As Founder Wout Coster liked to say, “A rising tide floats all boats” and; we are not mono-focused to the point of ignoring opportunities outside of the confines of the DC region.

Mainly focused on DC.

One completed project via Fundrise - matched pro forma (preferred equity).

Currently in another project direct, weekly construction updates and monthly reports - very thorough and detailed communications (tactical, not strategic).  Has made 2 small capital calls since.  Responsive.  Have not seen returns yet but expected because this is a complex construction project.

I have one current real estate investment with UIP in which I have invested in a joint venture with JP Morgan.  The fact that JP Morgan would pick UIP to work with for its high net worth clients speaks volumes.  I also invested in a UIP project through the Fundrise platform.  That project was completed successfully and efficiently.  Communication from UIP has been excellent, including weekly construction updates at times.  When I've had questions, I've found UIP responsive with answers.  UIP does not typically charge asset management fees.  Instead there are upfront acquisition fees, property management fees, construction management fees, and profit sharing through a promote and hurdle.
