17-story Luxury Apartment Complex Vesta Moves Forward in Birmingham’s Five Points South

August 1, 2017 – Birmingham, AL – A 17-story luxury apartment building initially set to begin construction in Birmingham’s Southside last year takes important steps forward.

Atlanta-based Cortland Partners and Harbert Realty announced early last year that it was developing a 318-unit luxury apartment building at 2173 Highland Avenue South dubbed Vesta for the Roman goddess of the hearth, a female counterpart to the Vulcan, a symbol of the city of Birmingham.

The development is set to include retail space, likely a restaurant, and a parking deck.

On Tuesday, the Birmingham City Council approved rezoning the subject property – located at 2163, 2169 and 2173 Highland Avenue and 2150 14th Avenue South – from B-2, General Business District to QB-3, Qualified Community Business District.
