Universal Paragon Corporation

Universal Paragon Corporation (UPC) is a developer and property manager for several significant real estate opportunities on the southern border of the City of San Francisco, California and a large portion of the adjacent City of Brisbane.

We partner with these communities to create a range of residential, commercial, hotel and mixed - use developments that reflect local values as well as compliment local and regional needs.

Our environmental and social sustainability values are at the core of our business philosophy. When combined with our multi- disciplinary expertise in planning, design and finance, we create extraordinary communities.

We are community builders with a focus on the public spaces between the buildings that will create community for new and existing residents as well as workers. Generous allocation to parks and open spaces further define the communities we create.
