Steven P. Rosenthal & Northland Acquire Property in Florida

In recent news, Northland Investment Corporation with President and CEO Steven P. Rosenthal, has acquired a 300 unit Cypress Shores complex in Coconut Creek, Florida. They have also acquired the 202 unit Village Place in West Palm Beach, Florida. The properties offer high end housing in two sought after neighborhoods.

Northland now owns and operates twenty properties and more than 5600 apartment homes in Florida. As Steven P. Rosenthal of Northland Investment Corporation said, “Florida’s economy and population continue to grow, and Northland intends to continue building our presence in this vibrant state. In addition to their exceptional amenities, Cypress Shores and Village Place are located close to other Northland properties and will benefit from our commitment to these locations.”

The two properties are at 1901 Lyons Road in Coconut Creek and at 2111 Brandywine Road in West Palm Beach.

Northland continues to expand in Florida and other places. They recently won four awards by the Southwest Florida Apartment Association including the Multifamily Company of the Year. At the awards ceremony in Naples, Florida they also received Apartment Community of the Year for two of their communities and Mike Janowsky was named the Service Technician of the Year.

Northland has grown to own more than 2600 apartment homes in SW Florida and more than 21,000 units across the country. The Multifamily Company of the Year award is given to the company whose rapid growth in the Southwest Florida market surpasses all competition, which is certainly the case with Northland.

As Steven P. Rosenthal said, “The mission of our residential communities is to provide comfort, convenience and exceptional customer service by accommodating all needs and creating a positive experience for every customer, every time. To be honored for our achievements at the community level, as well as our successful growth and corporate strategy more broadly, highlights how hard our team works in Florida and across the country to make us proud.”
