Specializing in the acquisition and development of outstanding properties around the world

UpperCross Development Group, ("UDG") is a multi-disciplined development company with experience in North America, South America, Mexico, Europe, Southeast Asia, the Caribbean and the Pacific.  Our approach is design-driven and management intensive and results in the creation of truly distinctive properties.


The planning and execution of a successful real estate development centers on a well-conceived and sensitive master plan that takes into consideration the uniqueness of each individual site, while creating a best use scenario that fits into the development model. The UpperCross team manages this process to create inherent value by taking the property from an idea to a physical manifestation, factoring in all the elements in-between. The process of analyzing the entire project in order to maximize the development opportunity is the basis of every UDG venture.

A significant benefit that UDG provides is hands-on involvement and leadership to create exceptional real estate. We strongly believe that inspired, well-conceived design leads to increased end-product value, and we pride ourselves on the ability to create and maintain collaborative relationships to achieve our vision.

Examples of our work can be found on the Current Projects and Select Past Projects pages.
