Our Company

Riaz Capital is an Oakland, California based fully integrated development, investment, and asset management company, focused on addressing the changing housing needs of the millennial generation. Our mission is that anyone who earns area median income can afford a place they would love to call home by building transit-oriented high-quality apartments at an affordable price point for our residents.

Our vertically integrated development firm has operated in the Bay Area since 1977. Today, the Riaz Capital team manages over 1,500 units and has roughly 1,700 residences in the development or construction process, and possesses core competencies in development, construction, asset management, finance & capital markets to exercise control and speed of execution through every stage of the development cycle. In addition to new construction development, the firm has extensive experience in repositioning both urban and suburban workforce housing properties, and has executed several adaptive reuse projects. Our current activities are ~70% new construction and ~30% adaptive reuse and repositioning. Today, Riaz Capital has ~$500 million in real estate assets under management and with our current development pipeline, should reach $1 billion by 2024/25.

Our core new construction design is a 300 +/- square foot studio that incorporates all of the necessary functions of a housing unit. We have developed a design that works in a variety of building types: Townhouses, Mid-Rise Apartments, Substantial Rehab and Adaptive Reuse. Our current design and mission is a result of a years-long synthesis of our experience from micro-units, student housing, traditional multi-family, and co-living. Our units foster total privacy and security, which provides our residents with a sense of independence (and individuality) all within the fabric of a larger community. Each of our projects has an emphasis on architectural creativity, unique design, walkability, utilization of open space and personal privacy.
