The Potential of Opportunity Zones for Your Firm’s Project Pipeline, April 10

The Potential of Opportunity Zones for Your Firm’s Project Pipeline, April 10

Excitement is rising in both the commercial real estate and economic development communities as the first new national investment program in 15 years begins.

The Opportunity Zone incentive was created as part of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and provides the flexibility to develop and redevelop a variety of commercial and residential project types—from workforce housing to brownfield sites in metropolitan areas and even energy assets. 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.

In the April 10 online class The Potential of Opportunity Zones for Your Firm’s Project Pipeline, Catherine Lyons of the Economic Innovation Group and Vanessa Sturgeon of TMT Development will share their insights on:

  • How to uncover the Opportunity Zones in your area
  • What kinds of projects will be done under the program
  • The basics of the Opportunity Zone program — key information you’ll need as you talk to your developer clients, as well as state, local and economic development officials
  • What developers and owners pursuing Opportunity Zone projects will be looking for in engineering consultants
