Becoming Cortland

Cortland was founded in 2005 with a focus on multifamily development in Atlanta. During the economic downturn in 2008, we decided to shift our focus from developing communities to acquiring and renovating existing multifamily communities – all with a vision to challenge the conventions of the traditional multifamily industry through better living spaces and experiences. By 2011, we owned and managed 5,000 apartment homes and meaningfully accelerated our plans to build a company that could deliver unique value to both our residents and partners.

Cortland Today

Since then, we’ve become an integrated, product-to-people, multifamily real estate company that owns the core aspects of its business, including construction, design, and property management. We’ve continued to grow and are now one of the largest multifamily companies in the US.

Headquartered in Atlanta, GA, we have communities across the US and regional offices in Charlotte, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Orlando, and Tampa. We also house our global materials sourcing office in Shanghai, China and international development office in London, UK.

With our pioneering business model, our enterprising team, and our commitment to placing the resident at the center of our decisions, we’re aiming to set a new experience standard for the apartment industry — one community at a time.

What We Do

Our goal is to deliver communities, experiences, and solutions beyond expectations – down to the smallest details of our everyday interactions to the standards by which we live and build. We are the dreamers, designers, and doers behind our living spaces and experiences, from the way we make our residents smile to the features we design and place in our homes. Get to know the Cortland businesses that build, design, and deliver the spaces we create.
