MetroPacific Properties, LLC

Metro Pacific Properties is a San Francisco Bay Area-based limited liability corporation specializing in multi-use real estate development and management. Founded in 2002 by Siavash Barmand, we have focused more recently on worldwide hospitality development projects.

We have been involved in over US$250MM worth of real estate project developments, management, rehabilitation, and consulting services. We successfully completed several projects ranging from US$2MM to US$60MM in the United States. This included repositioning of a hotel casino tower into residential apartments in State of Nevada, USA, and a ground up development and opening of a Hyatt Place Hotel in Riverside California.

Metro Pacific has successfully completed several development management projects for multi-residential projects in California. One of our specialties is urban mixed-use development, which includes, residential, retail, and hotel components, by partnering with the local government and municipality agencies.

We have also had investments in the hospitality and food & beverage sector in British Columbia, Canada – the Pan Pacific Whistler Village and the Dubh Linn Gate Irish Pub in the Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside.

One of our more recent projects was the successful development of a 128-key Hyatt Place hotel in Riverside, California. We started at the ground level, in a competitive developer selection process in 2006. We then negotiated a disposition and development agreement with the City of Riverside, developed the hotel and opened it in 2012. We sold the property in 2017.

MetroPacific is an approved hotel developer for several internationally known hotel brands, including the Hyatt Corporation.

Our team is currently seeking to invest and develop hospitality and tourism projects in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. We will utilize our experience and resources in the subject industry and work closely with local affiliates and industry leaders to put at least five hotel projects in the pipeline by 2020.
