Assuming you don't know the fair value of the stock but you know the fair value of the building, you would record a credit entry of $900K for paid-in capital. Also, you should reword the "investment" entry to "common stock."

You're going to have a gain on the sale of the stock (receiving a building instead of cash).
There may be other items to be accounted for, like if there is a mortgage on the building, etc.
More facts are needed before you can get the full picture of how the booking entries are to be made.
