Danielle Robins

Vice President, New York Office

Danielle is an experienced project manager who helps her clients to get their real estate projects done.

As a vice president at U3, she focuses on working with universities and non-profit organizations to plan and implement complex real estate projects in partnership with the private sector. She brings over 8 years of experience in strategic real estate planning, development, financial analysis, portfolio evaluation, and land disposition/monetization. Danielle has worked with a wide range of clients including colleges and universities such as Cornell University and Lafayette College and non-profit organizations such as the Brooklyn Public Library to select and negotiate real estate transactions with private partners to develop student housing, retail, commercial space, and mixed-use development. Her work is informed by her prior experience at the Port of San Francisco, where over a multi-year internship in college and graduate school she was exposed to the world of public-private partnerships while working collaboratively with the city and developers on real estate projects that redefined the San Francisco waterfront. Outside the office, Danielle reads and travels to satisfy her curiosity on varied perspectives and ways of life.

Danielle holds a BA in Urban Studies from the University of California, Berkeley and a Master of City and Regional Planning with a Certificate in Real Estate Development from the University of Pennsylvania.
