Cousins Properties announced it has closed on a new five-year, $1 billion unsecured credit facility. This facility replaces the Company's existing $500 million facility, which was scheduled to mature in May 2019.

"This new facility, when combined with our simple, low-levered balance sheet, positions Cousins to take advantage of future investment opportunities as they arise," said Larry Gellerstedt, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Cousins.
