Olmsted Chamblee Named ULI Excellence in Housing Award Winner

Olmsted Chamblee wins 2018 Excellence in Housing award at Urban Land Institute (ULI) Atlanta’s 24th Annual awards ceremony.

Atlanta, GA. October 2, 2018Olmsted Chamblee, a brand developed by CF Real Estate Services (CF), was bestowed the 2018 Excellence in Housing award at Urban Land Institute (ULI) Atlanta’s 24th Annual awards ceremony, mid-September in Atlanta, GA.

The ULI Atlanta Awards for Excellence program recognizes outstanding real estate development projects or initiatives that exemplify ULI’s mission of providing leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities. The ULI Awards program identifies and promotes best practices in all types of real estate development. In receiving this award, Olmsted Chamblee joins a group of Atlanta’s most iconic projects recognized for this same level of excellence.

Olmsted Chamblee is the first of the Olmsted-branded projects developed by CF. Olmsted Chamblee diverges from the commodity feel of many apartment communities and instead is a place where elements of architecture, interior design, marketing and branding come together to create a differentiated resident experience. Public spaces beckon residents with a warm and welcoming feel as a multifamily brand with the energetic vibe of a boutique hotel, a chef-driven restaurant and a favorite local coffee shop.

Brett Oliver, director of development at CF, created the brand, which defines itself by the experience it offers residents.

“Beyond the high-quality physical attributes of the spaces, attention to the experience in lifestyle is how you create the kind of signature community that our residents desire,” Oliver said. “From an artist’s studio with an artist-in-residence, to co-working spaces, living room lounges with places for photography and art classes, a unique community kitchen and even a local rescue dog who serves as our mascot, Olmsted Chamblee is a place where the lifestyle is truly differentiated. It’s so far beyond a place to stay; this is the kind of community that offers an elevated lifestyle.”

In January of 2018, Olmsted Chamblee also won the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Pillars of the Industry Award for Best Low-Rise, a national recognition.

Eligibility for the ULI Atlanta Awards for Excellence includes projects from the private sector, public sector, and nonprofit or civic institutions. The awards were open to ULI members and non-members with projects located within Georgia, Alabama, and Eastern Tennessee. All applications are evaluated by a distinguished jury of ULI members, representing all major segments of the industry. The jury considers how a development demonstrates leadership, innovation, market success, sustainability, resilience, and meets the current and future needs of its surrounding community.

Management services at Olmsted Chamblee are provided by CF’s in-house property management team. CF Real Estate Services manages real estate with properties across the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic, Central, and Midwest regions of the U.S. With decades of industry experience, the company has evolved into a leading provider of multifamily services that includes property management, asset management, and consulting.
