Headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah, Cottonwood is a fully integrated real estate company focused exclusively on the multifamily asset class. Cottonwood has significant experience in multifamily acquisitions, ownership, development and structured investments, and is led by a core executive management team with over 100 years of combined industry related experience and has spent an average of the past 10 years together working on the day to day strategy of the company.

Cottonwood invests primarily in major metropolitan markets throughout the U.S. and currently manages over 14,000 apartment units across 13 states, representing approximately $2 billion in assets under management.


Common shareholders received distributions of $0.50 per share in 2020.  This is an effective annual rate of 5.0% on the $10.00 purchase price. The Board declared cash distributions for March, April and May 2021 at the same rate.

Holders of the Series 2019 Preferred Stock are entitled to receive a preferred dividend equal to a 5.5% cumulative but not compounded annual return on the purchase price per share of $10.00.


Cottonwood Communities’ strategy is to invest 65% of its portfolio in income producing multifamily properties with stabilized rents and occupancy levels.  About 35% of the portfolio will target growth opportunities in preferred equity investments, mortgage or mezzanine loans, and equity in property/land to be developed into a multifamily apartment community. The portfolio currently consists of two multifamily properties with a total of 507 units, three preferred equity investments and one B-Note investment.
