With Natalie on board, Capital Square will continue to grow and prosper from the development business in qualified opportunity zones and elsewhere.”
Mason brings 13 years of real estate experience to her role at Capital Square, with a majority of those years spent overseeing development projects in San Francisco.

“Capital Square is growing its development business at a rapid pace,” said Mason. “I look forward to applying the many lessons learned on large West Coast developments to Capital Square’s numerous projects in the Southeast in qualified opportunity zones and other areas. Also, as a Richmond native, I am thrilled to return home.”
