Parkway Properties has staked a claim in Central Perimeter. Just months after the REIT made headlines with its purchase of 3434 Peachtree, Parkway—through its fund—it announced that it's also bought Two Ravinia Drive (below), the 438k SF tower in Dunwoody, company officials tells us.

The deal also has Eola selling its property management businessto Parkway; the combined total selling price is $462M. This comes on the heels of Eola's IPO filing in which the company planned to settle a $51.6M loan on Two Ravinia (among other property debt) by going public.
