Up’s mission is to upend the housing landscape in the hearts of dense, expensive and aging cities by building housing solutions and community for the next generation
Conventional building is expensive and causes pollution that is often irreversible. In many cities, industrial and business areas are deserted after working hours. Young adults are the life and soul of modern cities, yet they are being forced out from the center, left to find alternative, unsatisfying rental opportunities.
What is Up?
Up develops communities of 10-20 pre-fab rooftop houses for young adults. These communities are in business and industrial areas, creating a mixed-use solution while maximizing the residential, recreational and business potential of the area while reducing commuting. Our units are lightweight, mobile and utilize existing infrastructure to address housing challenges.
