Midland Apartments, LLC recently completed the $12,000,000 purchase of El Moro Apartments, located at 2016 SE 122nd Ave in Portland, Oregon.

Originally constructed in 1966, El Moro Apartments, now called Midland Apartments, is a market rate apartment community consisting of 94 total units. The subject property is made up of 27 one bedroom/one bath flats at approximately 601 square feet, 24 two bedroom/one bath flats at approximately 808 square feet, and 2 bedroom/1.5 bath townhouses at approximately 1,020 square feet. The community includes plenty of parking, a leasing office, a community/playground area, extra storage space, balconies/patios for every unit and washer/dryer hookups in all but the one bedroom apartments. The subject property was well maintained, had been owner managed since the seventies and offers significant upside for the new owner.
