Last month, Cortland Vesta wrapped up construction of their grand high-rise apartment building in Five Points South, following the adjoining mid-rise building, which opened back in April.

We are so excited to see Cortland Vesta open to new residents in Birmingham. Both the mid- and high-rise at Cortland Vesta offer beautiful views from each of the sleek & modern apartments.

But an apartment community is only as good as the surrounding community. Luckily for residents, Cortland Vesta is located in the heart of one of Birmingham’s most popular neighborhoods: Five Points South.

Welcome to Five Points South

Five Points South is one of Birmingham’s most exciting neighborhoods. In fact, it was the first area I became familiar with when I moved to Birmingham. Recently, Five Points South has seen a flurry of new activity—from new + upcoming restaurants like McFly’s Bird Shoppe and Underground Vegan to becoming Birmingham’s newest entertainment district. In fact, we just found out that What’s on 2nd is moving to Five Points South—but, of course they are keeping their iconic name.

In Five Points South, you’ll never run out of things to do, such as:

  • Restaurants & Eateries:
    • Chez Fon Fon
    • Ocean
    • Iron City Pizza
    • Highland Bar & Grill
    • McFly’s Bird Shoppe
    • Surin West
    • The Original Pancake House
    • Makarios Kabobs & Grill
    • Ranelli’s Deli & Cafe

Easy Access to Work or School

In April, we spoke with Lizzie Griffith & Adam Taylor, a couple that had recently moved to Birmingham. Since both Lizzie and Adam worked at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, they needed a home close to downtown. So, they chose Cortland Vesta.

Cortland Vesta is just a short walk or bike-ride away from some of Birmingham’s major employers—such as UAB, St. Vincent’s and Children’s of Alabama. Whether you’re working in healthcare or attending classes, Cortland Vesta makes getting to your destination a breeze.

Best View in Birmingham

In May, fellow Bham Now’er Matthew Niblett and I were invited to a sneak peek at the Cortland Vesta high-rise. By far, my favorite part of the tour was the rooftop sky deck. With an unbeatable view of the Birmingham skyline and Vulcan himself, I can safely say that Cortland Vesta’s rooftop is my favorite view in The Magic City.
