About Us

Urban Catalyst is a real estate equity fund focused on ground-up development projects in downtown San Jose. As both fund manager and local developer, we are in a unique position. We have experience creating ground-up development projects in downtown San Jose, and our track record of success in the Bay Area includes:

  • $5.0 Billion + in development projects
  • $5.2 Billion + in real estate asset acquisitions
  • 200+ real estate properties developed across a variety of asset classes
  • Over 2,000 residential units that are now located in opportunity zones


Urban Catalyst Opportunity Zone Fund II LLC (“Fund II”) was launched in 2021 with
Icon/Echo. Urban Catalyst is already in control of the property for this Fund, which will
focus on multifamily rental units and office space in downtown San Jose. This future
office and residential project is the epitome of a transit-oriented development. Yards
away from the future Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) Station, it’s differentiated by
design with large floor-plates, adequate parking and rooftop gardens. It is also across
the street from City Hall and only a block away from San Jose State University,
providing easy access to many key locations in the downtown San Jose area. It will
feature over 300 units of multifamily apartments and approximately 450,000 SF of
office. We believe Icon/Echo is a perfect blend of an urban environment in Silicon


We are proud of our success in Urban Catalyst Opportunity Fund I LLC (“Fund I”). Fund
I was a multi-asset real estate fund focused on ground-up developments consisting of
office, mixed-use, student housing, senior housing and a hotel. By the time we closed
our offering on December 30, 2020, we had not only acquired all of our projects but
had also surpassed our fundraising goals by raising a total of $131M from a diverse
investor base.
