Midwest Pointe Apartments cited for numerous structural issues, leaks, and mold

Residents of a local apartment complex were put on notice.

Midwest City officials declared the Midwest Pointe Apartments, 403 Silverwood Dr., as dilapidated property and asked all residents to vacate the property by Aug. 1.

The apartment complex has been condemned by the city due to structural issues, water damage, leaks in ceilings, and mold in several of the buildings.

City staff issued emergency notices to apartments on Tuesday afternoon.

The emergency notices explained that, per state statute, the apartment complex no longer meets minimum housing standards and was declared dilapidated by the City Council of Midwest City. The unsafe and hazardous conditions existing at the facility require that all apartments in the complex be vacated by Tuesday, August 1, 2023.

On May 16, the city council received a report from multiple members of city staff identifying hazardous conditions and code violations throughout the complex. The owner and the management company for the complex were put on notice that issues within the facility needed to be addressed immediately. As of June 20, city staff has received only a partial engineering report for Midwest Pointe Apartments and an incomplete building permit application.

The Midwest Pointe complex has been cited for 64 code violations dating back to November 2019 that range from structural damage to routine maintenance. Staff was unable to locate permits for any repairs made to the facility. Pictures from within the complex show makeshift structural supports and failing staircases.

Due to rapidly deteriorating conditions, staff has moved as quickly as possible to notify the residents of the complex. To help aid in their relocation efforts, Midwest City staff has compiled a resource list for those needing assistance. The list includes direct contact information for agencies that may be able provide help. These lists were also distributed to each door in Midwest Pointe and posted on all vehicles parked in the complex.

City staff will closely monitor conditions as residents relocate. As the complex becomes vacant, the City will require that each separate building stay secured. Barring a major renovation plan and immediate actions being taken by the owner of Midwest Pointe, the dilapidation process would include demolition of the complex at an undetermined date.

    I had to move into this complex after we lost everything in a house fire. I called the health department many times and mwc inspectors have known about the condition of that complex for YEARS and did NOTHING! I was a tenant and an employee and corporate knew as well. They closed an entire building due to mold once but let it sit. I won in court because of it. Sad how many people they took advantage of and here we are 2023 and it’s just now happening? Sickening!

    I have lived here for 3+ years and have NEVER had one single issue, not one! My apartment is not unsafe,in any form. Any maintenance requests I’ve had, which were minimal, have always been addressed in a timely manner. I’ve always felt safe here and have been an excellent tenant. This is my home, I have 3 animals and we love it here. I think I’m still in shock! My credit, completely my fault,is not good so I can’t even get into another apartment. I’m scared and honestly don’t know what to do or where to go. I went to the City Council meeting and the people that spoke, residents mainly,had nothing bad to say? I’m beyond confused and strrssed…I’m stuck
