OPPORTUNITY ZONES


At Garnett Station, we’ve been building businesses in low-income areas for five years. We’ve seen first-hand the impact that capital and growth can have on these communities – creating jobs and increasing wages.

We believe that the Opportunity Zone legislation is genius.

By providing tax incentives to invest in low income communities, the legislation will lead to increased capital investment, more jobs and higher wages in parts of the country that are typically overlooked.

We have the experience, relationships and infrastructure to lead the way.
