Award-Winning Multifamily Firm Cortland Introduces The First Luxury High-Rise in Three Decades to The City of Birmingham's Skyline

ATLANTA, GA - Cortland has opened its first high-rise development, Cortland Vesta, in Birmingham, Alabama. The property is also the city’s first luxury high-rise in more than 30 years. Cortland Vesta provides scenic views of The Magic City’s skyline and unparalleled access to all its Five Points South neighborhood has to offer.

Named after the goddess of the hearth and home, Cortland Vesta stands 17 stories tall and has 318 one- and two-bedroom apartment homes that offer residents comfort and drive community growth. 

The community offers personalized resident care through hospitality-inspired amenities, including 24/7 fitness and wellness options with a rock-climbing wall, a bike share program and on-site bicycle repair station, a Bark Park for pets, and indoor/outdoor lounge spaces, including a rooftop bar and kitchen space for entertaining with a view. From relaxing by a rooftop firepit to visiting the many restaurants, boutiques and trails nearby, Cortland Vesta residents get the convenience and comforts that are particularly important today. 

“This project has been wonderful to be a part of, considering its ideal location in the Five Points South neighborhood,” said Chris Fletcher, director of development at Cortland. “Cortland Vesta offers residents an upscale living hub with direct access to a thriving urban district – including the Five Points South Circle area with its dining and shopping options and the University of Alabama at Birmingham. The community has welcomed us with open arms, and we look forward to a flourishing relationship.” 

Cortland Vesta’s development was made possible due to the joint-venture partnership between Cortland and Harbert Realty Services, bringing together a wealth of local market knowledge and experience, and more than 45 years of combined development and property management expertise to the project.
