Urban Lab

Welcome to the NYU School of Professional Studies Urban Lab

The NYUSPS Schack Institute of Real Estate Urban Lab serves as a means to build a greater understanding of the economic and real estate trends that are reshaping our cities now and for the future.

The Lab and its scholars:

  • Explore the real estate development trends that are disrupting the urban environments in which we live and work, and the shifting paradigm in the way we think about these evolving centers of commerce and creativity.
  • Collaborate with leading urbanists and practitioners to address the complex and vexing challenges facing urban communities.
  • Offer market-based solutions for building greater prosperity and sustainability in urban environments.
