Pioneer Natural Resources out of DFW took the 16th spot on the national list with the sale of its Las Colinas headquarters to PRP Real Estate Investment Management for $584M, or $519 per SF. 

A second Houston deal secured the 32nd spot on the list, with Skanska selling its 775K SF Bank of America Tower on Capital Street to Beacon Capital Partners for $415M.

The JPMorgan Chase and Pioneer Natural Resources transactions took the top two spots in the South, followed by the $414M sale of Houston's Bank of America Tower, which ranked sixth. 

Civitas Capital Group's $240M sale of KPMG Plaza at Hall Arts in Dallas to buyer Masaveu ranked seventh on the list, while CIM Group's $220M purchase of Chase Tower in Austin from Goldman Sachs Asset Management ranked 10th across the entire Southern region.
