Started in Albuquerque, New Mexico by entrepreneur, Roy Solomon, Urban Tin Bins integrates ingenuity and fun. One of the premiere Urban Tin Bins projects is a community-oriented commercial plaza located in the heart of Albuquerque. The project was developed on a pie-shaped parcel that sat vacant for years. The property was owned by a church, and when the realtor announced the parcel had been sold, the owners gave him a standing ovation! The beauty of Urban Tin Bins is that it works fabulously for infill projects, especially on odd shaped lots.

Roy’s breadth of experience in creating high-quality, interesting brands has spanned 40 years and multiple states. He knows the intricacies of developing a thriving commercial venture from the ground up. From identifying the right site and best practices for the development on the outside, to how a space should flow and welcome its visitors on the inside.

The Urban Tin Bin team can help to develop plans to meet the need of any modern developer. Townhouses, shopping venues, restaurants, live work spaces – you’re limited only by your design sense and imagination. Let us work with you to identify the right Urban Tin Bins solution for your next project.
