Bridge Bank Extends $19MM Loan Facility to Riaz Capital
San Jose, Calif. - December 4, 2018
Bridge Bank today announced it has extended a loan facility to Riaz Capital, an Oakland-based developer focused on addressing the changing housing needs of millennial workers in the Bay Area. The new loan facility will support the Hannah Park project, a ground up four-story mixed use property located in the city of Oakland, consisting of ground floor retail and 90 units, including studios, junior one-bedrooms, and one-bedrooms.
“Hannah Park represents to us the embodiment of our firm's mission: providing stylish housing our residents can be proud of, at a meaningful discount to other current and upcoming offerings,” said Riaz Taplin, principal and founder of Riaz Capital. "We are excited to bring this Class A project to West Oakland - an area so close to major East Bay employers and retail that has nonetheless lagged other Oakland neighborhoods in this development cycle."
“We are committed to designing financial solutions for companies that have the vision to create positive change in the communities in which they live and work,” said Kimberly Rysyk, senior vice president in Bridge Bank's real estate lending group. "Riaz Capital is dedicated to bringing a supply of affordable housing to the Bay Area and we are excited to be a part of that effort. Our Bridge Bank team looks forward to supporting Riaz Capital through their continued growth and success."
