The buildings are part of the master-planned Perimeter Park that was developed by seller Duke Realty.

Jack Cuneo, CEO and president for CB Richard Ellis Realty Trust, said in a release that Raleigh is an income market for office investments and that the presence of the government sector, major universities and healthcare facilities has helped shield Raleigh from the worst effects of the national recession.
The joint venture between CBRE Realty Trust and Duke was formed in May 2008 and is 80 percent owned by CBRE's REIT.
The venture plans to acquire up to $800 million of newly developed build-to-suit projects over a three-year period.
