Opportunity Zone Warehouse

Welcome to the Opportunity Zone Warehouse.

The Opportunity Zone Program, enacted as part of the 2017 Tax Cut and Jobs Act, is a new federal economic development tool low income communities across the country can use to initiate economic and social growth. The heart of the program is uniting private capital, in the form of unrealized capital gains, with urban and rural communities that have great, untapped potential, but have historically lacked the resources to bring that potential to light. Through this new program, specifically identified communities in all 50 states, whether they be located in the heart of Appalachia or the center of Chicago, whether they be in the industrial communities of Ohio or in the West End of Louisville, have a chance to blossom and develop into strong centers of commerce and culture.

Stites & Harbison is dedicated to community development and capital investment. We designed this Opportunity Zone Warehouse as a way of facilitating Opportunity Zone transactions, by linking Projects, Qualified Opportunity Funds, and Investors with one another, and which allows the parties to find the best fit for their particular situation. By bringing others together, we envision this program producing great results and hope that this Warehouse is the conduit for those results. Because, as we all know, in order to produce greatness, sometimes all you need is the right opportunity.

Time to Consider Investments in Operating Businesses in Opportunity Zones

Opportunity Zones are depicted as transformative tools created to stimulate employment and achieve economic growth in distressed low-income communities. Like a public-private partnership, eligible taxpayers are entitled to significant tax incentives in exchange for investing unrealized capital gains in Opportunity Zones.
