A Curated Collection of Apartment Buildings
With more than 320 buildings and 7,500+ apartments across the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles metro areas, Veritas Investments is one of the West Coast’s premier multifamily operators.
Our rapid growth and tech-enabled management provide a proven formula for success in operating small- to medium-size multifamily assets at scale.
From studios to three-bedrooms, walker’s paradises to transit hubs, and luxury versus economical, Veritas offers homes for the needs of nearly every apartment dweller – all supplemented with outstanding digital amenities.
Focusing on smaller buildings that often carry some degree of deferred maintenance, Veritas leverages technology to acquire, modernize, and extend the lifespan of these multifamily communities – ensuring they remain attractive places to live for generations to come.
Revitalizing a Classic Luxury Hotel
The first luxury residential building built after San Francisco’s 1906 earthquake was once operated as a high-end hotel where numerous high society clubs would gather.
Built in 1911, situated just blocks from historic Grace Cathedral and dog-friendly Huntington Park in beautiful Nob Hill, it features a grandiose lobby with green Corinthian style columns, porte-cochere, and stately brick façade. Many apartments feature spacious floor plans, ornate architectural details and sweeping views of the San Francisco Bay, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, and San Francisco skyline. Common areas include a lobby waiting area, dedicated mail room, elevators, and on-site laundry area.
Walkability in West L.A.
Los Angeles isn’t typically thought of as a walker’s dream, but this apartment community is. It is directly adjacent to a major shopping center and a quick stroll to restaurants and nightlife on Hollywood Boulevard. Yet it’s still within striking distance of beaches and the attractions of broader L.A. via 101 just down the street.
With the Hollywood Hills as a backdrop, the community is a mix of studios and one-bedrooms that Veritas recently upgraded for the needs of the modern renter with updated fixtures and convenient digital amenities.
Veritas is also adding much-needed housing stock to this desirable neighborhood, converting an unused section of the property into accessory dwelling units (ADUs).
Oakland’s Launching Pad
Vue De Lac lives up to its name, with stunning views of Oakland’s renowned Lake Merrit.
Built in 1906, this apartment community features studio apartments, bike racks, and the almost-unimaginable convenience of a surface parking lot – the perfect launching pad for broader Bay Area adventures and new beginnings.
Veritas began addressing the community’s deferred maintenance issues during the 2020 Covid pandemic, infusing the formerly dull common areas with modernity and convenience.
Adding Light and Life to The Biltmore’s Basement
Formerly The Biltmore hotel, this piece of San Francisco history has been updated and restored, integrating modern amenities with its classic charm.
Whenever possible, Veritas adds housing stock to existing buildings, a sustainable way to increase housing in our supply-constrained markets. We took that approach here, converting its former dining room and ballroom into seven new accessory dwelling units (ADUs) – several of which feature attractive outdoor and patio spaces.
Veritas not only succeeded in developing much needed housing, but also delivering a significant return on investment, exceeding all projections.
Tech-Enabled, Sustainable Art Deco Living
Transformed from a hotel into apartments during a World War II housing shortage, this building is a unique blend of classic San Francisco art deco history, digital amenities, and modern finishes.
Managed by a third-generation resident manager, The Claire was the first Veritas building to implement Tumble smart laundry services. Rooftop solar panels sustainably power water heaters, and our Carson video-enabled smart access provides added resident security and peace of mind.
Veritas updated and modernized these apartments with state-of-the art fixtures and finishes (like low-flow toilets and stainless steel appliances), while still retaining its classic architecture and features.
