Item 7.01.
Regulation FD Disclosure.
 
During the third quarter of 2019, we announced a series of planned investment activities. First, during the fourth quarter of 2019, we acquired Bank of America Tower at Legacy Union in Charlotte’s uptown CBD submarket for a total investment of $436 million. Bank of America Tower at Legacy Union is a trophy, LEED gold-registered office building encompassing 841,000 square feet with structured parking that delivered in 2019. Second, we have a two-phased plan to exit the Greensboro and Memphis markets. The first phase consisted of selling a select portfolio of assets in Greensboro and Memphis by mid-2020 with a total sales price that approximates the total investment for Bank of America Tower at Legacy Union (with the intent of executing a reverse 1031 exchange) and closing the division offices. On March 31, 2020, we completed the first phase with the sale of four office buildings encompassing 599,000 square feet in the Poplar corridor submarket of Memphis.

The following table summarizes the disposition transactions that comprised the first phase of our planned exit of Greensboro and Memphis ($ in millions):
