Opportunity Zones

Our Opportunity Zone advisors are at the forefront of this burgeoning market segment, working to connect property owners, developers and equity sources to create opportunistic transactions.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 gave birth to new federal incentive - Opportunity Zones. Since that time, Opportunity Zones have dominated the headlines, to great confusion of both individuals and corporations that may qualify. The opportunity zone program is intended to incentivize investment in more than 8,700 economically disadvantaged areas across the U.S. and Puerto Rico that have been designated as Opportunity Zones. But how do they work? Who can claim incentives? And what projects can they support?

Cushman & Wakefield’s Opportunity Zone Advisory Group is at the forefront of this burgeoning market segment, working to connect property owners, developers, and equity sources together to create opportunistic transactions.

  • New Equity sources for Opportunity Zone deals are entering the market daily. Cushman & Wakefield is actively cataloging OZ opportunities, so we can help direct the right equity to the right deal, which enables our investors to be more nimble and able to act fast.
  • Developers play a key role in virtually every OZ transaction. By understanding the nuances of the OZ playing field and tracking a long list of potential deals, Cushman & Wakefield is finding opportunities and advising our developer clients on deals and deal metrics for OZ plays.
  • Our advisement for current owners of properties located within an opportunity zone is unmatched in the industry. Our unique strategies effectively help owners take advantage of the designation, allowing for the disposition of real estate while also creating the possibility of a participatory position in the OZ play.
  • The implications and advantages of locating a business in an opportunity zone are vast. Every day we are meeting with companies across the country providing our expertise and transactional support for business relocation.

Even as tax and legal implications can seem overwhelming, Cushman & Wakefield’s Opportunity Zone experts will serve as an advisor every step of the way.
