Welcome to Cordillera

Leading Real Estate Developer in the Pacific Northwest

At Cordillera, we have been blessed with longstanding developer relationships that have allowed us to create a fully integrated and collaborative approach to development and view each community as an opportunity to create an extraordinary place to live or work–or, as we like to say, the greatest place for its purpose. From amenity-rich communities to efficiently focused living/work spaces, we look to create exceptional environments that deliver what matters most to our investors and the people who will spend time there. Please explore some of the wonderful developments that we have had the opportunity to be a part of in our development careers.

Modern communities require a progressive, multi-disciplined, and long-term perspective to create lasting value. Our communities go beyond bricks-and-mortar to ensure long-term success, sustainability, and low operating costs. We develop a vision and story to create emotional connections between each new community and the individuals there.

By paying close attention to the needs of each region, we work simultaneously and efficiently to create the best possible community in line with our objectives. We bring together the best planning and creative talent to deliver exceptional designs that differentiate our communities, all grounded by a clear focus on financial performance.

Our Real Estate Development Objectives

Cordillera is a real estate development firm that focuses on large-scale multifamily, mixed-use, and opportunity zone projects within the Pacific Northwest. We are a nationally recognized, market-leading real estate developer of multi-family communities. We create high-quality, differentiated residential communities in many of the fastest-growing markets in the Pacific Northwest.

Cordillera’s focus is to maximize asset value and investment return while executing the asset’s business plan. Our team works directly with our property managers, financial partners, development, and construction teams to actively manage risk throughout the asset lifecycle.

Cordillera has developed relationships with the most active mortgage companies, along with regional and national banks, insurance lending companies, investment banks, and brokerage firms. This extensive network allows us to efficiently match projects with the appropriate financing option.

Industry Relationship Reviews

“Bill has an impressive history of successful development projects and consistently delivers on his cost and schedule obligations. As a general contractor, I’ll admit he has extremely high expectations, but his firm and proactive approach is also fair and collaborative. Bill fully understands the development lifecycle and will clear a path with timely decisions and team accountability that enables everyone the opportunity to work efficiently. I sincerely look forward to our next project together!”

Aaron Wiehe, VP & District Manager, PCL Construction Services Inc.

““I enjoyed working with Bill during his long tenure at TCR. I very much appreciated that he would take my 80-year-old dad on tours of construction sites – Bill is a class act.”

-Ken Valach, CEO of Trammel Crow Real Estate

“I have known and worked with Bill Hardt over the last 20 years most notably on the Bravern in Bellevue a technically challenging mixed-use project developed and constructed in 2005 – 2010. Since then Bill has continued his development career successfully completing projects on a local and national level. In addition to his strong core competencies in development, construction and management, integrity is Bills building foundation that brings success for all members of his overall team. Bill puts others success above his own and by doing so has mentored many successful young development professionals. I can’t recommend Bill enough. He will exceed your expectations regularly.”

Arne J. Hall, AJH Development Services, LLC

“Bill’s development and construction knowledge is unparalleled. We worked closely together on 30+ senior housing, multifamily, office, self-storage, and dialysis projects. Bill consistently drew on his vast development and construction experience to cleverly solve the inevitable challenges that arise with large-scale projects. With his guidance, we met or exceeded expectations on every project, from development budget to dispositions. Nonetheless, what I valued most about Bill was his mentorship and the trust he placed in me to run projects. He invests in people and is a loyal colleague and friend. I knew he always had my back and the team. He has a strong voice and is unafraid to speak hard truths. You need that in real estate development. He has the highest integrity.”
