Job Description:

Our Company

Riaz Capital is an Oakland, California based fully integrated development, construction and property 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, which has led to the development of market knowledge, civic relationships, and a clear understanding of how to build high quality housing efficiently. Today, the Riaz Capital team manages over 1,300 units and has roughly 1,500 residences in development or construction. Our team has grown to over 60 talented professionals across core competencies in development, construction, property management, finance & capital markets to exercise control and speed of execution through every stage of the development cycle.

Our core design is a 300 +/- square foot studio that incorporates all of the necessary functions of a housing unit with space to sleep, go to the bathroom, prepare food, entertain guests, hangout, work and store belongings. We have begun the deployment of these studios in three primary building types: Townhouses (3-story walk-up), Mid-Rise Apartments (5-stories with elevator) and Hospitality Conversions (garden-style walk-up). These studios are the result of a years-long synthesis of our experience from micro-units, student housing, traditional multi-family, and co-living. Our studios 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, walkability, interior landscaping and privacy.
