Welcome to Riaz Capital. Our core competency has been in mid-market multi-family re-positioning. Our Principals have been successfully operating in the East Bay multifamily market since 1999. Currently we own and operate 900+ units with building size ranging from 6-71 units. At the development level, we currently employ 16 people including three lawyers and two CPA’s.
Our history of projects showcase a broad spectrum of multi-family buildings in the East Bay ranging from four to seven units with development projects ranging from sixty two to two hundred and sixteen units per building.
The Millennial generation, larger in size than the Baby Boomers, is redefining living arrangements with the deferral of marriage and seeking affordable ways to live alone. San Francisco is facing increasing political backlash and a shortage of large-scale sites limits its ability to develop new housing at scale. Our thesis is to solve this problem and fill the unserved demand for this product type and for workforce housing by building small format affordable spaces in a cool environment.
In his early career, Riaz focused his attention on the ultra-luxury San Francisco real estate market. In 2013, one of his Pacific Heights projects set a record for highest residential property sales in San Francisco. While designing and developing over 50 high end residences in the Bay Area, Riaz also recognized an opportunity to purchase and reposition undervalued properties in Oakland. Utilizing his keen eye for design and unmatched understanding of both ends of the real estate market, Riaz set forth to transform these dilapidated buildings into a place that anybody would love to call home at an affordable price.
