Cortland Completes Cortland ChampionsGate 355-Unit Luxury Apartment Community in The Heart of Central Florida's Orlando Market

ATLANTA, GA - Cortland, a vertically integrated, multifamily real estate investment, development, and management company, has welcomed its first residents to Cortland ChampionsGate, a new luxury apartment community in the heart of Central Florida. The initial phase of the project is complete with the final phase expected to deliver in the summer of 2023. Just minutes away from some of Orlando’s most popular golf resorts, attractions, and shopping, ChampionsGate marks Cortland’s first new ground-up development in the Orlando area.

 The Spanish-style design of Cortland ChampionsGate was inspired by the work of famed south Florida architect Addison Mizner and features meticulously crafted interiors with modern finishes and 11,000 square feet of amenity space carefully thought out to offer residents a quiet, resort-style retreat.

“We have planned every detail and designer touch of Cortland ChampionsGate to offer residents a seamless and hospitality-driven experience,” said Chris Fletcher, Executive Vice President of Development at Cortland. “We are relentless in our commitment to raise the standard of apartment living and we believe this community does that from both a location and product perspective.”

The community has 355 apartment homes from studio to three bedrooms all with wood-style flooring, modern lighting, and high-end kitchens with French door refrigerators and a choice of all-white or two-tone cabinets. The resort-style courtyard highlights a stunning tropical pool and sundeck with poolside Cabanas and lounges with HDTVs.  A two-story, indoor-outdoor rooftop lounge overlooks the pool. The community has a 24/7 fitness center that offers free group classes and a panoramic view of the pool courtyard. Residents can also enjoy a private pavilion and dock overlooking a scenic pond, surrounded by a one-quarter-mile nature trail and a leash-free bark park.   

Cortland ChampionsGate will also debut a new, innovative valet trash system with interior/exterior access, allowing the collection of trash directly from the resident’s home without having to step inside. This eliminates the need to have trash set outside in community corridors for pickup. And in response to growing resident demand, the development has the capacity to accommodate 138 electric vehicle chargers, which will be installed as needed.

In addition to its 36 Florida communities, Cortland has five new development projects comprised of more than 1,700 units currently under construction in Florida.

“We are thrilled to be delivering ChampionsGate on time and on budget,” Fletcher said. “Our data-driven approach led us to break ground in July of 2021 despite the lingering effects of Covid-19, supply chain constraints, and the downturn in the entertainment corridor. When everyone else was on hold, we doubled down and were able to bring our vision to life, which is a huge testament to the project team.”

The project team included several Orlando-based firms including Charlan Brock Architects and civil engineers from Madden, Morehead, and Stokes along with VCC general contractors.
