Chesapeake is expected to sell more office buildings in the coming months, said Cordell Brown, a real estate broker for Price Edwards & Co. who was not involved in the Central Park sale.

“I think it's just a matter of Chesapeake divesting itself of properties it doesn't see any future need for,” Brown said.

While Chesapeake's real estate holdings are significant in Oklahoma City, Ford Price, managing partner for Price Edwards & Co., believes the company's divestitures will have a negligible effect on the local market.

“Unless they really start selling off more assets, I don't expect there to be a significant impact on the office market,” Price said.
