Chinese developers look to SF Bay Area for residential investment

  • Chinese developers are behind some of the Bay Area's stand-out residential projects.
  • Most of the project's proposed by Chinese developers are high rises or feature more than 450 units.
  • A two-tower, nearly 650-condo project is significant for downtown San Jose.

More Chinese developers are moving forward with sizable Bay Area residential projects outside of the city of San Francisco. Several of these projects are condo developments that would impact markets with a minimal supply of new for-sale product. Others will deliver a significant number of townhomes or redevelop a waterfront.
