"These off-market acquisitions represent a natural expansion of our platform near Purdue University," said Marc Muinzer, founder of both Muinzer and its affiliate, Chicago-based South Street Capital.

We are seeking to make additional purchases that expand our existing position as the largest apartment owner and land owner near Purdue."
"We are also pleased to acquire 400 Ferry Street, which adds to our Opportunity Zone land holdings in downtown Lafayette," added Marc Muinzer. "The Opportunity Zone initiative should further accelerate the growth and expansion of this submarket." Muinzer and T2 Capital Management are preparing to launch a Qualified Opportunity Zone Fund in the second half of 2019. The fund will focus on ground-up developments and redevelopments near engineering, aerospace and technology based education centers and regional innovation hubs.

Opportunity Zones represent a provision of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. Investments in Opportunity Zones provide potential tax benefits including the deferral of current capital gains, tax deductions on current gains and no capital gains on appreciation if the investment is held for 10 years. Investors can use capital-gains proceeds from any asset class, not just real estate, to capture these potential benefits.
