07 May See inside one of downtown’s most expensive apartment buildings
On the first public tours of the new 111 Lofts this weekend, Tulsans can ooh and aah over some of the plush amenities. Oversized bathtubs. High ceilings, reaching 14 feet in some units. And walk-in closets big enough to host cocktail parties in them.
The 111 Lofts, converting a historic 10-story office building at Fifth Street and Boulder Avenue, will offer the usual one- and two-bedroom units along with tiny efficiencies, all with sweeping views of the skyline. But the 111 will also include several three-bedroom apartments with more than 2,600 square feet. And the developer, Price Family Properties, has already leased nearly half of them, even though move-ins won’t start until this summer.
The three-bedroom units rent for $4,000 a month.
But innovation tends to start at the high end of a market. Early VCRs cost more than $1,000 in the 1980s. And the first Motorola cellphone retailed for $3,995. So think of this as a taste of what could be to come.
