Chesapeake Energy Corp. has sold the twin Central Park office buildings near N Lincoln Boulevard and Interstate 44 for $22 million, taking a $7 million loss on the properties it purchased two years ago.

The six-story office buildings sold to the Florida limited liability company Central Park on Lincoln on May 1, according to property records. Chesapeake purchased the office towers in August 2011 for $29 million.

An attorney for the buyers declined to comment on the purchase.

Access Midstream Partners, formerly Chesapeake Midstream Partners LP, moved its operations into the north Central Park office building in 2012, after Chesapeake Energy sold all of its interest in the midstream company to its former partner, the private equity firm Global Infrastructure Partners.

Chesapeake has been selling off some of the many office buildings it owns over the past several months as the company looks to cut back on spending.
