Cortland Launches $1B Investment in DC Area with Initial Multifam Acquisitions

Atlanta-based Cortland has acquired four properties in Arlington, VA totaling more than 1,500 units. According to the company, the acquisitions are a $1 billion investment that marks its re-entry into the DC area market and confidence in the return to the urban core.

“Northern VA is a highly coveted location that is already seeing a rebound in growth as residents move back to the urban core,” said Mike Altman, CIO at Cortland. “The combination of these investments allows us to gain a strong foothold in the region at a strategic time based on our proprietary analysis of market trends.

Two of the four acquisitions have been identified: Aubrey, a 331-unit apartment community, now to be known as Cortland Rosslyn, and Aura Pentagon City, a 534-unit apartment community, to be renamed Cortland Pentagon City.

Cortland manages and is invested in, directly or indirectly, over 250 apartment communities with more than 85,000 units throughout the US.
