West Michigan's Premier Custom Home Builders

Established in 2003, New Urban Home Builders, LLC is a boutique residential builder specializing in design-focused custom homes, additions and renovations in the Grand Rapids and Lakeshore areas. 

At New Urban, we’re passionate about building homes the right way. No matter the size nor style, we'll honor your great design with exceptional craftsmanship, attention to detail and the right amount of value engineering. And long after the memories of moving boxes have faded, we'll be around to provide the warranty and maintenance assistance you need to protect your considerable investment.  

Quality and balance may be hard to see on a rendering or blueprint, but you know it when you enter a home built with an understanding of scale, proportion and comfort. That's what we do. And we love what we do. 

The passion builds.

After all the horror stories we heard about building a new house, our experience with Scott Branc and New Urban was anything but a horror. Scott is an engineer first so he understands the process involved in building. His team was professional, courteous and neat. They finished on time and on budget…. Overall, the building process was one of the most fun experiences we could imagine.

“We selected New Urban because of their experience with contemporary design, and we worked with the owner, Scott Branc, for the duration of the project. Scott’s knowledge, creativity, attention to detail and commitment to quality were simply outstanding. His need to “get it exactly right” is so pathologically strong that it borders on something diagnosable–and we were more than happy to be the beneficiaries of his illness! He is a remarkably talented builder.”
