Excitement is rising in both the commercial real estate and economic development communities as the first new, national investment program in 15 years begins. Referred to as “the biggest tax cut you’ve never heard of” by The Economist, the Opportunity Zone incentive was created as part of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
This new incentive will provide the flexibility to develop and redevelop a variety of commercial and residential project types—from much-needed workforce housing to well-located brownfield sites in metropolitan areas and even energy assets—resulting in new opportunities for engineering firms.
And with over 9,000 communities designated as Qualified Opportunity Zones—including many in transit-oriented, urban locations—your firm could be poised to profit from this new investment program.
