Atlanta – July 10, 2017 – CBRE today announced that the firm’s Debt & Structured Finance team has secured construction financing on behalf of Cortland Partners of Atlanta and Harbert Realty Services for Vesta Apartments, a 318-unit mid-rise and high-rise luxury multifamily development coming to the Five Points South submarket of Birmingham, Ala. The new tower will be the first high-rise development of its kind in Birmingham.

Bill Leffler of CBRE’s Atlanta office led the capital markets efforts for the Cortland team. 

“This transaction is representative of the city’s future growth plans,” said Leffler of CBRE. “Vesta is a very differentiated product from the standard market rate apartments in the area. It will be the first Class-A high-rise in Birmingham and will appeal to those looking for luxury rental options.”

Vesta Apartments will include a rooftop deck with amenities, a fitness area with 360 degree views of the Birmingham skyline, an infinity-style pool, a sleek lobby with 24-hour concierge, and secure parking. 

The rebirth of Birmingham’s City Center, entertainment district and creation of flexible offices, coupled with efforts to attract and retain young talent have sparked the need for multifamily options.
