How Does it Benefit The Property?
The commercial potential of the building is proven: The commercial value of a building is at risk if left empty. If a building is being used it can prove its potential. Many of the spaces used by Urban Dream Brokerage were retenanted afterwards. With UDB trhe property remains for lease, but with an activity demonstrating its use. More attention is drawn to your property
Your building is taken care of: Illegal intrusions, vandalism and graffiti entail costs for owners. When buildings are temporarily used, they are cleaned and taken care of.
The building finds a natural purpose: Commercial buildings find new uses based on new needs. The building creates life in the area through daily activities and events. The building is transformed from an empty shell to a space with a purpose.
Businesses and careers are developed: You directly support the growth of new businesses in Wellington. Responsibility for property develops business skills.
