The Birth of HDS Home & Design, LLC

Founded in 2005 by Trevor Vaughan, HDS Home & Design, LLC began as a general contracting business licensed in New York and New Jersey. The company specializes in acquiring, renovating, and constructing both affordable and market-rate residential and commercial properties.

Transforming Communities

HDS Home & Design, LLC is driven by a mission to rejuvenate struggling neighborhoods by rehabilitating dilapidated homes and creating affordable housing. Additionally, the company turns vacant lots and underutilized spaces into thriving real estate ventures. Over time, HDS Home & Design, LLC has broadened its scope to offer comprehensive project and property management services.

Expanding Team and Clientele

Over its 12-year journey, HDS Home & Design, LLC has grown to include a dedicated full-time team of skilled tradesmen and subcontractors, specializing in the development and construction of residential and commercial properties. Their diverse clientele ranges from individual homeowners to prominent figures in the entertainment industry, as well as various businesses, non-profits, and community organizations.

A Unified Vision

In 2015, the visionary leaders of Equitable Development Consultants, LLP, and HDS Home & Design, LLC joined forces to form Urban Development Partners. This dynamic merger brought together two distinct lines of business: the development, construction, and rehabilitation of residential, commercial, and mixed-use properties; and the provision of Owner's Representative and development services for clients' real estate portfolios.

Through unwavering faith and dedication, Urban Development Partners has seen its client base and geographical reach flourish. The company's growth is driven by a steadfast commitment to a simple yet powerful philosophy: nurturing long-term relationships with clients, employees, vendors, investors, and partners.
