Cortland Opens Luxury Apartment Community in Tampa Area

 Cortland, a vertically integrated, multifamily real estate investment, development, and management company, has welcomed its first residents to Cortland Riverview, a new luxury apartment community near Brandon with easy access to Tampa Bay. The project’s initial phase is complete with the final phase expected to deliver by the end of this year.

“We are thrilled to be delivering another community in the Tampa area,” said Chris Fletcher, EVP of Development for Cortland. “The region has all the wind in its sails, with incredible natural resources, a relatively low cost of living, and a desirable climate.  Our data-driven approach led us to break ground in November of 2021 in the high-demand and high-growth location between Brandon and Tampa.”

The community has 319 thoughtfully designed and meticulously crafted apartment homes from studio to three bedrooms, all with wood-style flooring, modern lighting, and high-end kitchens with custom cabinetry. The community also boasts 13,000 square feet of amenity space and a resort-style courtyard, which highlights a stunning tropical pool and sundeck with poolside Cabanas and lounges with HDTVs.  A four-story stack of amenities includes a 24/7 fitness center that offers free group classes and a panoramic view of the pool courtyard.  Above the gym, residents can enjoy a two-story, indoor-outdoor sky lounge.   Residents can also enjoy a private pavilion, a landscaped trail surrounding a pond, and a leash-free bark park  

“Cortland Riverview will offer residents a quiet, oasis-like retreat with incredible access to everything that makes Tampa so desirable,” said Fletcher. “Every detail of this community is focused on our commitment to raise the standard of apartment living, foster a sense of community and conversation and provide resident-centric hospitality.”

Cortland Riverview will also feature an 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 113 electric vehicle chargers, which will be installed as needed.

The project team included Charlan Brock Architects, Kempton Rinard, and VCC as general contractors. In addition to its 36 Florida communities, Cortland has five new development projects comprised of more than 1,750 units currently under construction in Florida.
