RADCO Cos. buys Tulsa asset for $6M

The RADCO Companies Ashford Ridge ExteriorTulsa, Okla.—The RADCO Cos. has kicked off a value-add investment play with its acquisition of a 142-unit apartment in Tulsa, Okla. The off-market transaction of Southern Slope was brokered by Raymond Lord and Benjamin Daivs of NAI Commercial Properties.

Southern Slope is RADCO’s second property in Tulsa, previously acquiring the 284-unit Ashford Overlook at West 61st Street and South 33rd West Avenue in January. The company plans to pursue additional value-added opportunities in the Tulsa and Oklahoma City markets.

“I believe in the Tulsa market, which I see as underserved. RADCO appreciates the importance of the Jenks school district, which ranks as the best in the state,” says Norman Radow, CEO & founder at The RADCO Cos. “Nothing trumps the compelling story behind what we are renaming Ashford Ridge. It is the closest apartment community to the burgeoning St. Francis Medical Center, the largest medical complex in Oklahoma. With its superior location, unparalleled views and the $20,000 per unit of capital improvements we intend to invest, this property will undoubtedly be a market leader.”

Upgrades will target units and a major overhaul of the exterior and amenities. The property will also be rebranded as Ashford Ridge.
