Why This Matters

Few elements of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act have attracted more excitement from the commercial real estate community than the Opportunity Zones program.

Investors everywhere teeming with interest, a bit of confusion, and anticipation of final regulations and interpretations. The program, having much to be determined by national and local politicians, has many waiting for answers.

However, it has not slowed down investors. LA County has 274 census tracts designated for Opportunity Zones. The zones have 68 housing projects under construction, and another 230 multifamily projects currently proposed.

Much is to be determined about the program and its future. How do we ensure Opportunity Zones benefit all Los Angeloneans? How will the program really impact Los Angeles development? Are enough investors taking an interest in the program? What regulations still need to be interpreted?

Join us as we dive into the murky waters of Opportunity Zones, sift through the unsolved details, and search for treasure in its intricacies.
