“This portfolio represented a significant opportunity to acquire a high-profile selection of quality office assets located in Tulsa’s affluent southern submarkets,” Schwartz said. “Offering a combination of low-, mid- and high-rise office space, the buildings appeal to a broad array of tenants as an economic alternative to the area’s higher-priced office assets.”

The properties comprise 1 million square feet and include the 189,124-square-foot Towne Center, 10810 East 45th Street; the 166,754-square-foot Exchange Tower, 4500 South Garnett Road; the 138,708-square foot Triad Center 1, 7666 East 61st Street; and the 134,941-square-foot Two Memorial Place.
