In April 2020, workers will start construction on Scottsdale Entrada in Scottsdale, Ariz. The massive development will eventually become the “largest mixed-use asset” in the city, including 735 new apartments, according to its developers.
Scottsdale Entrada is just one of the investments now underway that will claim tax benefits through the federal Opportunity Zone program. Developer Banyan Residential paid Sunchase Holdings $38 million from an approved Opportunity Zone fund for the 30-acre site, located on a former auto mall in an Opportunity Zone, according to data firm Yardi Matrix.
After many months of delays and missed opportunities, developments like Scottsdale Entrada are now underway across the country. “We anticipate new ‘Opportunity Zone’ projects will begin to break ground more frequently,” says Doug Ressler, director of business intelligence with Yardi Matrix.
