ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Parkway Properties, Inc. (NYSE: PKY) announced today that its previously disclosed joint venture that owned the mortgage note secured by 7000 Central Park in Atlanta, Georgia has foreclosed on the asset and taken ownership of the property.  Additionally, Parkway announced that it has completed the sale of Carmel Crossing, a 326,000 square foot office complex located in Charlotte, North Carolina.

7000 Central Park is an 18-story, 415,000 square foot, Class A office tower located in the Central Perimeter of Atlanta.  It was built in 1988 with an attached structured parking garage, and offers numerous amenities including a 7,000 square foot fitness club.  The property is currently 77.5% occupied and is expected to generate initial full-year cash net operating income yield of approximately 5.0%.

Parkway previously announced that the Company acquired a 40% common equity interest in a mortgage note secured by 7000 Central Park, which had an outstanding balance of $65 million at closing.  The total purchase price for the note was $56.6 million plus an additional $318,000 in transaction costs.  Parkway's share of such amount was approximately $45.0 million, comprised of an investment of approximately $37.0 million for a preferred equity interest in the joint venture that acquired the note and an investment of approximately $8.0 million for a 40% common equity interest.  On November 5, 2013, the joint venture foreclosed on the property and assumed ownership of the asset.  The joint venture intends to place secured financing on the asset, the proceeds of which will be used to repay in part the Company's preferred equity investment.

On November 8, 2013, Parkway completed the sale of Carmel Crossing for a gross purchase price of $37.5 million.  Parkway had a 30% ownership interest in the property, which was owned by Parkway Properties Office Fund II, L.P.  The Fund originally purchased the asset in November 2010, for a gross purchase price of $25 million.  During the fourth quarter, Parkway expects to record a gain on the sale of approximately $14.5 million, $4.4 million of which is Parkway's share, and expenses related to the prepayment of the mortgage of approximately $2.1 million, $620,000 of which is Parkway's share.  Additionally, Parkway expects to receive approximately $7.1 million in its share of net proceeds.
