Roadmap to Opportunity Zones

August 06, 2019

A recent report by Cushman & Wakefield found that the 138 Opportunity Zone funds it tracks are targeting an aggregate total of more than $44 billion in equity. When some 200 smaller funds are factored in, overall capital inflows are expected to be anywhere from $100 billion to more than $6 trillion. Cushman & Wakefield also cited an MIT study that observed a 20 percent price premium for redevelopment of properties in the Opportunity Zones vs. outside the zones and a 14 percent premium on vacant development sites.
