Did the Nazis ever plan to build any large cities on their desired Lebensraum? I know that Lebensraum for the Nazis was primarily for agriculture and autarky, but was there ever a desire among the Nazis to create new urban centers for the German population in the occupied territories?

Yup, apparently:
Adolf Hitler: Wenn Hitler den Krieg gewonnen hätte…

30 million Slavs would first be liquidated, and in particular intellectuals (going on the dinner conversations the plan was to make the subjugated Slavs to the east analphabets, entertained over radio, lots of accordion music and lots of dancing – bit like the rankest white American prejudices about black people at the same time, sans water melons possibly). Then at least in parts of the former USSR new cities would be built, and populated by Aryan colonists from Germany + Netherlands, Scandinavia and the like (themselves forcibly incorporated in the Reich, all independent Scandinavian culture and language would be rooted out in favour of German too).

Moscow would be reduced to nothingness, not even a trace left. These new cities would be ringed by a zone of nice villages also for Aryan colonists to a depth of 30-40km. Outside these zones would be the villages of Slav peasants tilling the land, serfs. And through these the Aryan Masters would traverse sitting atop their tanks, something like Vedic or Homeric heroes + modern tech. Massive Autobahns would connect all parts of the Grossgermanisches Reich, and there would also be high-speed rail links (200 km/h) connecting the important bits.
