The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that a lawyer for LNR Partners placed two ‘credit bids’ totaling $250 million during the auction. LNR represents the lender, an investor-owned commercial mortgage-backed security, and the lender will reportedly seek a new buyer for the property.
Opened in 1992, the Bank of America Plaza is notable as the tallest building in the southern U.S., the tallest American building located outside of New York and Chicago, and the tallest building in any state capital. California-based BentleyForbes purchased the property in 2006 for $436 million from CSC Associates, a partnership of Cousins Properties Inc., and Bank of America Corp., which maintained tenancy in the building. Last month, BentleyForbes defaulted on a $363 million debt.
