Greatwater Opportunity Capital LLC
The Future of Detroit's Neighborhoods

About

Passion. Experience. Opportunity.

History

In 2014, we acted on our belief that the best returns are found in overlooked markets, and began investing in Detroit real estate. Over the years that followed, we achieved superior returns and also played a positive role in Detroit’s neighborhoods.

The Opportunity Zone legislation has given us a roadmap – and tax incentives – to expand our operations in Detroit and beyond.

We believe that the future of America will be shaped by new capital flows. If you are interested in investing in America’s future in a tax advantaged way, please join us.
