Urban Life is a house building and property development company founded and operated by Laurence Goodman. The company started by buying up partially finished estates left over by the recession and breathing life back into them, and by extension, the local surrounding neighbourhoods. Initially there was no grand plan, seeking only to keep things simple, produce high quality work and create interesting places for people to live.

Since then, we have grown to procure and develop large scale brown and green field residential sites in Dublin’s commuter belt and partnering with some of the country’s largest Registered Housing Associations.
