Garrison Companies started out with a dream and desire to provide new construction, affordable rental housing development to rural areas in the Midwest and Southeast has grown into a multi-dimensional real estate development firm engaged in medium to large scale mixed-use development, adaptive re-use of historic structures, urban in-fill redevelopment, and market rate and affordable rental and for-sale housing in a 10-state area, including states in the Midwest, Mountain and Southeast United States. In 1996, Garrison built a 18-unit apartment community in Chadron, Nebraska for affordable renters. Since then, Garrison has constructed and rehabbed over 1000 living units and has been involved in mixed use development in second and third-tier cities in its 10-state area. Over $100,000,000 in asset value has been created.<br><br>From March, 1991 to November, 1997, Garrison Hassenflu served as Owner/Broker of Garrison Commercial, Prairie Village, KS, where he has acted as a broker of all types of commercial real estate, and as an independent consultant on the acquisition/rehab, site selection, tax credit application and financing of low to moderate income housing tax credit projects in Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Utah and Colorado. In November, 1997, Mr. Hassenflu formed Garrison Development Company (GDC) to develop LIHTC and mixed income developments in the above areas.

Equity Origination

Through Garrison Equities, Garrison Companies provides quality investment opportunities via Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC) and Historic Preservation Tax Credits (HTC) programs.  These federal and state tax credit programs provide a dollar-for-dollar reduction in the investor’s tax liability for up to 10 years, while providing equity funds for the development of quality affordable housing. 

How the Investment Works
The investor receives a flow of tax credits from Garrison Equities at a discount; for example, an investor will pay $0.85 for every $1.00 of tax credit received (discount levels are market-based and determined on a project-by-project basis).  In addition, investors receive the benefits of the depreciation and interest expense deductions which flow from the property.  The investor’s financial return is generated from the annual tax savings, along with the depreciation and interest deductions; essentially turning the investor’s tax liability into a 10 year annuity investment opportunity, with significant returns.

Benefits Summary:

  • Fixed annuity for 10 years
  • Turns tax liabilities into investment opportunities
  • Very low risk
  • Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) benefits for bank investors
