The San Francisco firm that rounded up $200 million from foreign investors to help get the Hunters Point Shipyard redevelopment off the ground is spreading its wings - and raising a lot more money.
The San Francisco Bay Area Regional Center, a major player in the federally regulated Immigrant Investor program, is announcing Tuesday a $500 million fund to help finance two more projects in California next year. It's also changing its name to Golden Gate Global, to reflect an international reach that includes investors from 12 foreign countries so far and an office in Shanghai that opened last month.
