Item 8.01 Other Events
On September 5, 2013, we entered into an agreement to acquire two 41-story office towers in Philadelphia commonly known as One Commerce Square and Two Commerce Square based on a $331.8 million valuation. The properties, located on Market Street in Philadelphia's central business district, contain an aggregate of 1,896,142 square feet and were built in 1987 and 1992, respectively. The properties are collectively 88% leased and have achieved LEED-Silver status. We currently own a 25% preferred interest in the entity that holds title to the two office towers and we will acquire the remaining interests (other than a one percent interest to be retained by an affiliate of the seller) subject to two existing first priority mortgages totaling approximately $238.0 million for a net cash payment to the seller of approximately $69.0 million, subject to customary closing costs and pro rations. At closing, we will assume full management responsibilities, including property management and leasing. We have the right to acquire the retained one percent interest on or after October 31, 2021 for its fair market value. Prior to our acquisition of the retained one percent interest (and consistent with the rights the holder obtained when we acquired our 25% preferred interest in 2010) the holder of the interest has the right to approve our sale of the properties in a taxable transaction and we have agreed to afford affiliates of the holder the opportunity to guaranty the mortgage debt on the properties or qualifying replacement financing. The seller of the interests is an affiliate of Thomas Properties Group, Inc. On September 4, 2013, Parkway Properties, Inc. and affiliates (collectively, "Parkway") entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger with Thomas Properties and its operating partnership to acquire Thomas Properties and its operating partnership (collectively, "Thomas"). We are not affiliates of either Parkway or Thomas and our agreement was determined through arm's-length negotiation. Closing of the acquisition of One Commerce Square and Two Commerce Square is subject to customary closing conditions, including lender consent, and the consummation of the merger between Parkway and Thomas.
On September 5, 2013, we also entered into an agreement with Parkway to acquire Four Points Centre and an adjacent 19-acre land parcel in Austin, Texas for $51.0 million. Four Points Centre is comprised of two three-story buildings located in Austin's Northwest submarket and contains 193,862 square feet. The two buildings are LEED-Gold Certified, were built in 2008 and are currently 100% leased. The adjacent 19-acre land parcel is entitled to build up to 480,000 square feet of office space. Our agreement to acquire Four Points Centre and the adjacent land provides us a 45-day due diligence period, and closing of the acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions, including consummation of the merger between Parkway and Thomas.
