PITTSBURGH, March 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alpha Capital Partners, a Pittsburgh based real estate investment and development firm, through a joint venture has announced the acquisition of its first qualified opportunity zone project. Alpha Capital launched its Opportunity Zone fund with a target raise of $250 million in October 2018. 1501 Herman is a ground up development project located in Downtown Nashville, Tennessee, within walking distance from the Amazon’s Nashville Yards expansion, creating 5,000 new jobs in the area. The project is within the Marathon Village, a premier retail entertainment destination housing about 40 creative office tenants and generating significant foot traffic.

Thomas McGahan, CFA, Managing Director of Investments for Alpha Capital said, “We are excited to have acquired the first project in our Opportunity Zone Fund.

Alpha’s development and construction teams are up and running with project execution and we are looking forward to delivering a 300-unit multifamily community Downtown Nashville, a very strong growth market.”
