Why This Matters

In Boston, high-end condominiums, luxury apartments, high-rise hotels, towering office buildings and chic retail and restaurants are being built and delivered at an astonishing pace, in areas including East Boston, the Financial District, and more.

But that's not all these neighborhoods have. They also have pockets of opportunity.

10 tracts throughout Boston are now under a new federal program designed to bring investment and development into the region, prompting savvy investors and city officials to work together to spark economic activity. 

The Opportunity Zones tax incentive was included in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act President Donald Trump signed into law in December 2018. The law gives tax benefits to investors that place unrealized capital gains into Opportunity Funds, which then invest in Opportunity Zones, a host of census tracts local governments decide have the most need and can best support the investment.  

The State of Massachusetts nominated these 260 tracts in March 2018. The U.S. Department of Treasury certified these tracts on May 18, 2018. 10 of these recently-approved zones are in Boston alone.

Join Bisnow and our all-star panelists in December as we dive deep into Opportunity Zones and answer the most important questions around this new law, as well as analyze the top 2018 CRE trends as we dive into 2019. It's a Bisnow opportunity you don't want to miss!
