about header



Urban Form Development was created to develop a portfolio of predominately mixed-use income-producing assets. The partnership between William Lyon Homes and Stanton Street Building Company leverages extensive entrepreneurial experience and local market knowledge to achieve the company’s goals. A primary focus of Urban Form Development is the opportunistic redevelopment of underutilized well-located infill properties in all Pacific coastal markets.

It's a vision that's shaped by
our minds and led by passion.
Fred Gast


Urban Form Development
Chief Operating Officer

Mr. Gast served as a principal partner and Oregon division president of Polygon Northwest until the company was acquired by William Lyon Homes in 2014. Following the acquisition, Fred continued to lead the Oregon division for three more years while doubling the size of the business. In his 20-plus years of experience, Mr. Gast developed four master-planned communities and thousands of homes, including apartments, townhomes, condominiums and single-family homes. His passion for transforming underutilized land into beautiful places and spaces where people want to live their lives underscores every project that he and the Urban Form Development team design and deliver.
