  3. Podcast: Design and Development With an ESG Lean
September 7, 2022

Listen to Eric discuss his windy road to real estate design and development, and how ESG and community building are critical lenses he looks through.

On this episode I’m speaking with Eric Cress, Principal at Urban Development + Partners, where he concentrates on acquisition, development, and finance.

An engineer and designer by training, Eric is drawn to innovative new ideas that make our communities better places to live. As such, he oversees budgets and the acquisition-to-construction phase of new projects.

Before UD+P, Eric was a project manager at Pacific Bay Investments in Berkeley, California. Prior to that, Eric managed engineering projects for Cypress Semiconductor, Maple Optical Systems, Leapfrog Toys, and the National Science Foundation.

Eric holds eight patents and has published several papers related to this work. He earned an MBA with a focus in real estate finance from the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley, as well as BS and MS degrees in electrical engineering from Mississippi State University.
