Intentional Development

The Opportunity Zone legislation encourages long-term thinking to stimulate job growth and provide local businesses with access to capital in communities that are often overlooked.

Chapel is leading the charge in prioritizing community-focused, profitable development not only in Greenville, but also throughout the country.

Real estate is the entry point, providing us a place to call home. But it does not stop there. The momentum will continue with investment into our neighbors, our tenants, and our city as we proactively cultivate existing potential from within the community.

Why Opportunity Zones?

Long-term thinking, long-term appreciation, and long-term impact.

Tax incentives are not a reason to choose a deal, but they can certainly provide a boost to an already strong deal. We are aggressively de-risking your investment into this project by layering tax credits where possible, and returning capital quickly.
