Description


Join us Wednesday 11.6 for our next chat & social - Qualified Opportunity Zones!

You've likely heard a bit about Opportunity Zones, now we'll get a chance to find out a bit more via one of the leading voices in the field - Marc Berkowitz, cofounder of CoPlace. CoPlace activates communities within cities from the inside out by bringing value to local leaders, investing in local businesses and most importantly preserving the valuable culture that is present.

~~~~~~~~

The Qualified Opportunity Zone (QOZ) program was established by Congress in the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act as a new tool to incentivize long-term private sector investments in gentrifying and emerging neighborhoods nationwide through Qualified Opportunity Funds, in exchange for a suite of tax benefits. Trillions of dollars of unrealized capital gains are eligible for tax efficient investment in real estate and businesses in designated QOZs.

The Qualified Opportunity Zone program has the potential to emerge as the most meaningful federal incentive for long-term investment ever enacted.

CoPlace is an investment and advisory firm that focuses on activating distressed areas by revitalizing their local communities and business ecosystems. CoPlace has completed multiple socially and economically impactful projects, which have received awards and garnered international attention from industry, government, and academic groups.

+Benefits for investors in Opportunity Zones
+Discussion of projects under development
