CORT Case Study: Element Uptown

This apartment community needed to increase units leased along the backside of their 22-story building. They called CORT to get the job done, fast.

Located in Charlotte, North Carolina, upscale apartment community Element Uptown had a problem: units along the backside of the building were not getting leased as quickly as apartments with more picturesque views. They needed a luxurious look that appealed to their millennial and empty-nester community.

How We Helped:

  • Provided a fully-furnished model apartment, including accessories, within 48 hours of the request.
  • CORT furnished a second apartment to encourage more leases at Element Uptown.
  • Saved the apartment community $64,800 in monthly rent for apartments.

CORT's Solution

From the phone call to the install, Element Uptown had a fully-furnished model unit that they were proud to show to potential tenants within 48 hours. Element Uptown opted to include home accessories for the unit, including bathroom towels, artwork and rugs to give the apartment a move-in ready feel, giving tenants a picture of what life could be like living at Element Uptown.

The Result

All units along the backside of the apartment building have been leased, saving Element Uptown $64,800 every month in rent that would have otherwise gone unpaid. After all units had been leased on the backside of the building, Element Uptown asked CORT to move the furniture to a second model unit that was having a hard time attracting new leases. There are currently only three units left to lease.

Furnishing led to leases $64,800 Saved in monthly rent

  • It would cost Element Uptown $64,800 per month to have unleased units. CORT's model unit helped lease apartments that may have otherwise been unleased.
