Crimson Real Estate Fund LP along with investment partners Admiral Capital Group and USAA Real Estate Company sold the properties.

At year-end 2013, the Austin market had an occupancy rate of 87.9 percent, compared to 85.8 percent at the end of 2012, according to CBRE.

“The sales prices for most Texas office towers will continue to increase in 2014,” according to Matthew Deal, commercial appraiser with Deal Sikes & Associates. “As office leases become available for renewal, tenants are signing new leases with major increases in rents. Those higher rents lift the values of office assets,” said Deal.
