SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Over 90 days, Virtua Partners, a global private-equity real-estate investment manager, fully-funded three of its Opportunity Zone projects. In fact, equity for all three projects was fully-committed within a week of each launch. These three projects represent varying investment strategies that Virtua Partners pursues under its Opportunity Zone initiative.

The three projects all located within qualified Opportunity Zones include:

  1. 71-unit townhome development in Glendale, Arizona
  2. 90-unit single family rental development in Tempe, Arizona
  3. 128-room SpringHill Suites Marriott in Avondale, Arizona

“Virtua Partners has seen significant demand from investors, which we believe certifies our investment philosophy as it relates to Opportunity Zones,” says Derek Uldricks, President of Virtua Capital Management. “The velocity of capital commitment showcases investors’ belief in the quality of our deals and ability to execute.”

As Virtua Partners is the first private equity firm to launch a qualified Opportunity Zone fund, it’s no surprise that equity for each of these projects was fully-committed just days after launch. This highlights that Virtua Partner’s selection, development and funding initiatives produce potentially high-quality Opportunity Zone investments that attract investors and establish industry qualifications for success. Virtua Partners relies on what it feels are strong environmental, social and economic factors that contribute to the advancement of communities. With over 100 projects in the Virtua Partner’s pipeline, investors have a chance to participate in this potential growth with its Opportunity Zone funds.

“It is our belief that Virtua Partners is strategically positioned to grow with the socially conscious investor. We want Opportunity Zone-directed investments to be at the forefront of social impact investing, and we believe that could be accomplished with the demand we’ve seen,” says Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Virtua Partners Quinn Palomino. “Our projects seek to build developments that bring jobs and economic activity to struggling communities.”
