The territory of the Khortytskyi District was first inhabited by German-speaking Mennonites settling the Chortitza Colony in the late 18th century. By the 1960s, the first residential neighborhoods were being constructed in the vicinity, which at the time administratively belonged to the city's Leninskyi District.
