Urban Sky Developments provides real estate infill investment opportunities with attractive returns.

Starting at a moderate entry amount, you will become a shareholder with our project based company, and balance your portfolio with a legitimate real estate option for urban renewal residential developments. These are a great opportunity for you to partner with our local, hands on, experienced construction management team.

We Connect With Our Customers

We want to get to know you. At Urban Sky, we value the close personal connections that we’ve made with both our project investors and home buyers. And, it’s important to us that we continue to cultivate those positive relationships with future customers. It’s one of the many things that set us apart.

Here’s how it works:

Business Activity

Urban Sky starts with identifying property land value in mature neighbourhoods that demonstrate redevelopment and market opportunities. Once these properties are acquired, Urban Sky designs developments and building plans with market appeal, which maximize the best utilization of the property, fits the existing neighbourhood, and meets the objective for the project’s return on investment.

The Investment Opportunity

Urban Sky invites project investors (“Investor”) who are interested in infill real estate development investment without having to deal with the day-to-day management and construction of such projects. We provide project-specific site/floor plans, investment financial proforma (with market comparables) of how we propose working with you on a project.

Steps

Step 1

Urban Sky will source and acquire the prospective property (existing building with land) or assist the Investor in negotiating the purchase of a property. Normally, the purchase is done using an industry standard mortgage for a non-primary residence, which typically requires 20% of the sales price.

The deposit can be arranged through either:

  • Cash deposit
  • Debit arrangement such as a Line of Credit (LoC)

The Investor provides a Letter of Intent to Urban Sky for the project specific development of the property.

Step 2

Urban Sky completes and presents a proposal to the Investor that outlines:

  • Conceptual project site and floor plans
  • Timelines & permitting process
  • Financial proforma of forecasted return on investment
  • Project structure including equity ownership or debt arrangements

Step 3

Upon acceptance, a project company is formed (ProjectCo), through either:

1. Equity funding which provides the Investor a shareholder return
2. Debt funding which provides the Investor a fixed interest return
3. Combination funding through Debt & Equity

TYPICAL ARRANGEMENTS:

  • ProjectCo incorporated with either an Unanimous Shareholder Agreement (USA) or LLP.
  • ProjectCo buys out existing mortgage. The title for the property is transferred to ProjectCo.
  • Equity Investor receives percentage ownership based on the amount contributed to the ProjectCo.
  • Debt Investor provided legal loan documents with promissory note from ProjectCo.
  • ProjectCo pays all Urban Sky legal costs.
