Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
     On June 12, 2007 (“Effective date”), Crescent Real Estate Equities Limited Partnership, a Delaware limited partnership (the “Partnership”), and certain of its subsidiaries and affiliates (the “Sellers” and, collectively with the Partnership, “Crescent”), and Equastone Acquisitions, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Purchaser”), entered into a Purchase and Sale Contract (the “Purchase Agreement”) pursuant to which, among other things, (a) Crescent agreed to sell to the Purchaser all of Crescent’s rights, title and interest in properties that Crescent refers to as Palisades Central I and adjacent land parcel, Palisades Central II, 125 E. John Carpenter, The Addison, The Aberdeen, Greenway I & I A, Greenway II, MacArthur Center I & II, 3333 Lee Parkway, Stemmons Place, Stanford Corporate Centre and the North Dallas Athletic Club. The total purchase price under the Purchase Agreement, which was determined through arm’s length negotiations between the parties, is approximately $420,000,000 and is to be paid at closing.
     The Purchaser has paid an earnest money deposit of $3,500,000, which deposit is nonrefundable except in certain limited circumstances. The Purchaser has the right to terminate the Purchase Agreement until July 12, 2007. If the Purchaser has not terminated the Purchase Agreement by the expiration of this period, the Purchaser is required to make an additional deposit of $6,500,000, and the additional deposit shall also be nonrefundable except in certain limited circumstances.
     The closing of the transactions contemplated by the Purchase Agreement is subject to the satisfaction of certain customary closing conditions. There are no assurances that the conditions will be met or that the transaction will be consummated. The parties to the Purchase Agreement presently anticipate that the closing will occur during the third quarter of 2007. None of Crescent Real Estate Equities Company, the Partnership, any of the Sellers or any affiliate of the foregoing, has a material relationship with Purchaser, other than pursuant to the Purchase Agreement.



     Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
