Ron DeSantis, Enterprise Florida Bring Back Commercial Property Search Tool

On Wednesday, Gov. Ron DeSantis announced the relaunch of Enterprise Florida’s commercial property search tool.

Find It Florida! is a robust, public database for viewing and uploading available commercial building and site properties across the state. The relaunch includes updates to the functionality of the site and a new layer featuring Opportunity Zones,” the governor’s office noted.

DeSantis said bringing back the search tool will help improve Florida’s business culture.

“We are always working to make Florida the best place to start and grow a business,” said DeSantis on Wednesday. “This tool will continue to assist businesses and now investors find commercial properties and sites in Florida, as well as Opportunity Zones, to encourage long-term investment and job growth in communities across our state.”

“Enterprise Florida is excited about this relaunch and, particularly, the inclusion of Opportunity Zones on the Find It Florida! website,” said Jamal Sowell, Florida’s Secretary of Commerce and the president and CEO of Enterprise Florida. “The Opportunity Zones Program is a great economic development tool. We are ready to start marketing Opportunity Zones to potential businesses and investors to encourage additional investment and job opportunities for Floridians.”

“We fully support Enterprise Florida in utilizing all tools available, including Opportunity Zones, to foster reinvestment in communities across the state,” said Ken Lawson, the executive director of the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. “The Find It Florida! tool will allow communities to educate investors on what makes their area unique.”

“Find It Florida! allows users to seamlessly search using dozens of criteria combinations and site overlays for infrastructure, education, broadband technology and more. The site also includes up-to-date demographics and statistics for all 67 Florida counties and nearly 1,000 Florida cities, towns and communities,” the governor’s office noted. “The Opportunity Zone Program is a tool that provides several tax incentives when investors reinvest gains in qualified Opportunity Funds. The funds must in turn invest in low-income communities from designated census tracts, called Opportunity Zones.”

    I developed a technology to produce clean water from sea water. FDEP made an announcement in front of 30 scientist and engineers people attending the presentation they would fully fund development! I called the person to make arrangements to get started and was advised Enterprise Florida had no money for water development programs in Florida.
