Stylish Apartment Community in Dallas’ Oak Lawn District Attracts Investors

JLL closes sale of Axis on Wycliff

DALLAS, August 11, 2015 – One of Dallas’ newest luxury apartment communities has been acquired by Chicago-based Sherman Residential.  Trinsic Residential Group sold Axis on Wycliff, a 334-unit Class A+ complex for an undisclosed amount, at a time when the asset was over 95 percent occupied.

Managing director Jeff Price, executive vice president Brad Takala, and senior vice president Jorg Mast led the JLL team on the transaction.

“Dallas-Fort Worth is one of the Nation’s top employment centers, and it’s expected that by 2020 over 7.6 million people will live in North Texas,” said Scott Gould, Senior Vice President of Acquisitions with Sherman Residential.  “We were excited to acquire the property and benefit from the projected growth in the Metroplex with such a well-positioned investment grade property.”

The community is located at 4343 and 4338 Congress Avenue, in proximity to Uptown, Park Cities, the Medical District, and the Design District.  The property features some of the highest quality construction, interior unit finishes, and conveniences in the market. Upscale amenities include a resort style pool with tanning ledge, relaxation courtyard with fire pit, gourmet kitchen islands, and stone backsplashes within each unit.

“Axis on Wycliff is in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Dallas, and the area will continue to appreciate alongside major public and private economic investments, such as the Love Field Airport expansion,” said Price.  “Area dynamics have already had a positive impact on the lease-up rate with recent renewals being signed at a six percent increase.”

According to, Axis on Wycliff has a score of 82, which is similar to such cities as New York and San Francisco, and is considered a “very walkable” location where most of daily errands can be accomplished on foot, or in a pedestrian friendly environment.
