Urbanspace makes markets. We cultivate environments rich in creativity – places where local makers collaborate, exchange ideas, and showcase their wares. Fostering community by transforming city spaces, we are motivated to provide the platforms on which artisans and entrepreneurs succeed.
We pack the year with an exciting roster of pop-up markets, each featuring an ever-changing lineup of chefs, artisans and makers. We build our markets in the most vibrant thoroughfares of New York City, bringing a dynamic array of food and design to unexpected public venues. Our brick and mortar food hall, Urbanspace Vanderbilt, offers a year-round foodie destination featuring 20+ chef-driven concepts within an truly iconic New York space.
Urbanspace began in London in 1972 as Urban Space Management, the brainchild of developer Eric Reynolds. During its 40+ years of existence, the company has revamped derelict city spaces, conserved heritage buildings, and created vibrant new places for community and commercial gathering. Its formula: imaginative promotion, close involvement with the arts and, above all, nurturing of small business.
Urbanspace markets are imaginatively adapted to fit the unique characteristics of each neighborhood. Past Urbanspace markets have included the Dekalb Market, Urbanspace Meatpacking, and Penn Plates, along with new installments of perennial favorites Mad. Sq. Eats, Broadway Bites, Urbanspace Garment District, the Union Square Holiday Market and Columbus Circle Holiday Market. Urbanspace’s brick and mortar food hall, Urbanspace Vanderbilt, operates year-round at 230 Park Avenue on the Northeast corner of East 45th and Vanderbilt Avenue.
