About Apex @ Midtown
The Apex @ Midtown gave Pax Properties a perfect opportunity to acquire a well-located asset positioned to benefit from the completion of an existing value-add program.
This 91-unit apartment community in a solid, working class area of Tulsa is surrounded by residential neighborhoods and conveniently located so that its residents can easily access the most significant employers within the Tulsa MSA.
The lack of competing multi-family properties coupled with strong demographics and solid multi-family fundamentals provides a perfect canvas for our new ownership to build on, reposition and rebrand.
Pax Properties will continue to focus on building out the current value-add program and implementing new initiatives to drive revenue growth.
