Hello, we are ULS
Nice to meet you!
To date, ULS is just shy of seven years old. What began in 2016 as a test project between Leang, his wife, and a few friends ended up taking off and growing rapidly. Starting from a humble team of three persons to now 40-fully committed to challenging expectations, we don’t sell “units”; we build homes and communities that connect, inspire, and benefit the people that live and work here. Through all the communities we build, community focused development remains at the core.
THE PROJECT TEAM

Urban Loft was developed to prove that urban Cambodians would live in condominiums. At the same time, its 21shophouses created an innovative typology appropriate for the modern era.Open layouts prioritizing function, high-quality materials, and attention to detail combined with unique community-oriented amenities for families have helped to usher in an entirely new, and exciting way to live in Phnom Penh.

ULS is excited to unveil its next exciting project in PhnomPenh:Uchi Residences– a residential high-rise condominium located in a quiet section of the Tonle Bassac area. ULS acquired the land in 2019 after Managing Director Leang Kean was inspired by the quiet laneway connecting the site from street 466, reminding him of the small alleyways populated by small restaurants and micro bars of Tokyo. Drawing further inspiration from Japan, the team proposed developing a residential building that incorporates some of the smartest features of Japanese homes that would be of benefit to Phnom Penhers.
