(b)Except with respect to the payment due on the Maturity Date, in addition to the payments required under this Section 2.2, if Borrower fails to pay any installment of interest or principal on the date on which the same is due, Borrower shall pay to Lender a late charge on such past-due amount, as liquidated damages and not as a penalty, equal to five percent (5%) of such amount, but not in excess of the maximum amount of interest allowed by applicable Legal Requirements. These charges shall be paid to defray the expenses incurred by Lender in handling and processing such delinquent payment(s) and to compensate Lender for the loss of the use of such funds. These charges shall be secured by the Loan Documents.
(c)In addition to the payments required under this Section 2.2, while an Event of Default exists, the Loan shall bear interest at the Default Rate.

(d)Prepayment. Except as otherwise expressly stated in Articles 2 and 3 hereof, upon not less than thirty (30) days prior notice to Lender, Borrower may prepay the Loan and any other amounts then due and payable under this Agreement and other Loan Documents in whole but not in part, upon payment of a prepayment fee (the “Prepayment Fee”) equal to, as applicable, (i) for any Prepayment Date occurring prior to the Seventh (7th) Loan Year, the Yield Maintenance Amount, (ii) for any Prepayment Date occurring on or after the date set forth in clause (i) above, but prior to the eighth (8th) Loan Year, two percent (2.0%) of the amount of Principal Balance being prepaid on such Prepayment Date; and (iii) for any Prepayment Date occurring on or after the date set forth in clause (ii) above, but prior to the ninth (9th) Loan Year, one percent (1.0%) of the amount of Principal Balance being prepaid on such Prepayment Date.

Amounts so deposited with Lender shall hereinafter be referred to as Borrower’s “Required Repair Fund.” Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Required Repair Fund shall be advanced by Lender to Borrower to fund or reimburse Borrower for the cost of Required Repairs in accordance with the conditions for replacements, repairs and capital improvements advances under Schedule 2.6(a). Any such funding or reimbursement will, with respect to each individual Required Repair, equal no more than 125% of the actual cost of such Required Repair. While an Event of Default exists, Lender shall not be obligated to advance to Borrower any portion of the Required Repair Fund, and while an Event of Default exists, Lender shall be entitled, without notice to Borrower, to apply any funds in the Required Repair Fund to fund completion of the
    17
US_ACTIVE\123288794\V-8


Required Repairs or to satisfy the Obligations in such order, proportion and priority as Lender may determine in its sole discretion. Lender’s right to withdraw and apply Required Repair Funds shall be in addition to all other rights and remedies provided to Lender under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. Upon completion of the Required Repairs in accordance herewith, Lender shall disburse to Borrower any then remaining Required Repair Funds in the Required Repair Reserve.
(d)Tax and Insurance Escrow Fund. Borrower shall pay to Lender (i) on the date hereof an initial deposit in the amount of $682,636.85 and (ii) on each Payment Date thereafter (a) one twelfth (1/12th) of the Taxes that Lender estimates will be payable with respect to each Project during the next ensuing twelve (12) months in order to accumulate with Lender sufficient funds to pay all such Taxes at least thirty (30) days prior to their respective due dates, and (b) one twelfth (1/12th) of the insurance premiums that Lender estimates will be payable for the renewal of the coverage afforded by the policies of insurance required pursuant to Article 3 hereof upon the expiration thereof in order to accumulate with Lender sufficient funds to pay all such insurance premiums at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of such policies of insurance (said amounts in (i) and (ii) above hereinafter called the “Tax and Insurance Escrow Fund”). Provided no Event of Default exists, Lender will apply funds in the Tax and Insurance Escrow Fund to payments of Taxes and insurance premiums required to be made by Borrower pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the Mortgage. Borrower shall be responsible for ensuring the receipt by Lender, at least thirty (30) days prior to the respective due date for payment thereof, of all bills, invoices and statements for all Taxes and insurance premiums to be paid from the Tax and Insurance Escrow Fund, and so long as no Event of Default exists, Lender shall pay the governmental authority or other party entitled thereto directly to the extent funds are available for such purpose in the Tax and Insurance Escrow Fund. In making any payment relating to the Tax and Insurance Escrow Fund, Lender may do so according to any bill, statement or estimate procured from the appropriate public office (with respect to Taxes) or insurer or agent (with respect to insurance premiums), without inquiry into the accuracy of such bill, statement or estimate or into the validity of any tax, assessment, sale, forfeiture, tax Lien or title or claim thereof. If the amount of the Tax and Insurance Escrow Fund shall exceed the amounts due for Taxes and insurance premiums, Lender shall, in its sole discretion and only while no Event of Default exists, return any excess to Borrower or credit such excess against future payments to be made to the Tax and Insurance Escrow Fund. Any amount remaining in the Tax and Insurance Escrow Fund after the Obligations have been satisfied in full shall be returned to Borrower. In allocating such excess, Lender may deal with the Person shown on the records of Lender to be the owner of the Project. If at any time Lender reasonably determines that the Tax and Insurance Escrow Fund is not or will not be sufficient to pay Taxes and insurance premiums by the dates set forth in (i) and (ii) above, Lender shall notify Borrower of such determination and Borrower shall increase its monthly payments to Lender by the amount that Lender estimates is sufficient to make up the deficiency at least thirty (30) days prior to the due date of the Taxes and/or thirty (30) days prior to expiration of the applicable insurance policies, as the case may be.
(e)Reserve Funds Generally.
(i)Borrower grants to Lender a continuing, first-priority perfected security interest in each of the Reserve Funds and (A) any and all monies now or hereafter deposited in each Reserve Fund, (B) the accounts into which the Reserve Funds have been deposited, (C) all insurance of said accounts, (D) all accounts, contract rights and general intangibles or other rights and interests pertaining thereto, (E) all sums now or hereafter therein or represented thereby, (F) all replacements, substitutions or proceeds thereof, (G) all instruments and documents now or hereafter evidencing the Reserve Funds or such accounts, (H) all powers, options, rights, privileges and immunities pertaining to the Reserve Funds (including the right to make withdrawals therefrom), and (I) all proceeds of the foregoing as additional security for the Obligations. Until expended or applied in accordance herewith, the Reserve Funds shall constitute additional security for the Obligations. While an Event of Default exists, Lender may, in addition to any and all other rights and remedies available to Lender, apply any sums then
    18
US_ACTIVE\123288794\V-8


present in any or all of the Reserve Funds to the payment of the Obligations in any order in its sole discretion. The Reserve Funds shall not constitute trust funds and may be commingled with other monies held by Lender.
(ii)Borrower shall not, without obtaining the prior consent of Lender, further pledge, assign or grant any security interest in any Reserve Fund or the monies deposited therein or permit any Lien or encumbrance to attach thereto, or any levy to be made thereon, or any UCC-1 Financing Statements, except those naming Lender as the secured party, to be filed with respect thereto.
(iii)Any interest or other earnings on a Reserve Fund shall be added to and become a part of such Reserve Fund and shall be disbursed in the same manner as other monies deposited in such Reserve Fund. Borrower shall be responsible for payment of any federal, state or local income or other tax applicable to the interest or income earned on the Reserve Funds.
(iv)Borrower shall indemnify Lender and hold Lender harmless from and against any and all actions, suits, claims, demands, liabilities, losses, damages, obligations and costs and expenses (including litigation costs and reasonable attorney’s fees and expenses) arising from or in any way connected with the Reserve Funds or the performance of the obligations for which the Reserve Funds were established, except to the extent that such loss or damage results from Lender’s gross negligence or willful misconduct. Borrower shall assign to Lender all rights and claims Borrower may have against all Persons supplying labor, materials or other services which are to be paid from or secured by the Reserve Funds; provided, however, that Lender may not pursue any such right or claim unless an Event of Default exists.
(v)Lender shall not have any duty as to any Reserve Fund in its possession or control as agent therefor or bailee thereof or any income thereon or the preservation of rights against any person or otherwise with respect thereto. In no event shall Lender, or its affiliates, agents, employees or bailees be liable or responsible for any loss or damage to any Reserve Fund, or for any diminution in value thereof, by any reason of the acts or omissions of Lender, except to the extent that such loss or damage results from Lender’s gross negligence or willful misconduct.
(vi)Upon payment in full of the Obligations, Lender shall disburse any then-remaining funds in the Reserve Accounts to Borrower.

If (A) an Event
    19
US_ACTIVE\123288794\V-8


of Default exists or (B) the Projects fail to maintain an aggregate Debt Yield of no less than 8.00% as of any calendar quarter Test Date (each, a “Cash Sweep Trigger”), Lender shall have the right to issue a Redirection Notice and immediately thereafter take control of the Collections Accounts, thereby suspending Borrower’s access to and right of withdrawal from the Collections Accounts. Upon issuing a Redirection Notice, Lender shall, pursuant to the Collections Account DACA, cause Depositary Bank to sweep funds from the Collections Account to (x) prior to the execution of a Cash Management Agreement, an account designated by Lender in its sole discretion and (y) after the execution of a Cash Management Agreement, the Cash Management Account, as defined therein (the “Cash Management Account”).
(b)Lender may, in its discretion and in any order, apply or disburse funds swept from the Collections Account pursuant to Section 2.9(a) above for (1) the payment of escrow deposits into the Tax and Insurance Reserve Fund then required pursuant to Section 2.6(d) or impounds required pursuant to Section 3.4, if any, (2) Debt Service on account of the Loan then due and payable, (3) other amounts due and payable to Lender pursuant to the applicable terms and provisions of the Loan Documents, including, without limitation, deposits to Reserve Funds required hereunder and the customary and reasonable cash management servicing fees associated with establishment and/or administration of the Cash Management Account (or any sub-account thereof).
(c)After an Event of Default or Cash Sweep Trigger, Borrower shall cooperate, and shall cause Property Manager to cooperate, with Lender and Cash Management Bank to execute a Cash Management Agreement governing the application and/or disbursements of funds from the Cash Management Account, which shall be on a form acceptable to Lender in its sole discretion. Upon execution of a Cash Management Agreement, provided no Event of Default exists, Lender may apply or disburse funds from the Cash Management Account to fund (i) expenses described in Section 2.9(b) above and other Operating Expenses in accordance with the most recent operating budget approved by Lender pursuant to Section 7.4 hereof, or (ii) as otherwise specified in the Cash Management Agreement.
(d)If no Event of Default or Cash Sweep Trigger exists, Lender shall send a notice to Depositary Bank and return control of the Collections Accounts to Borrower provided that either (i) the Projects have achieved an aggregate Debt Yield of not less than 8.10% for a period of two (2) consecutive calendar quarters (provided, that, if all or a portion of the amounts on deposit in any Account are used in the calculation to satisfy the requirements of Section 8.16, then such portion shall be deposited with Lender as a cash reserve) or (ii) Borrower indefeasibly pays and performs the Obligations in full (either, a “Cash Sweep Cure Event”).
(e)While an Event of Default exists, Lender may apply any sums then held in the Collections Accounts or the Cash Management Account (other than funds held in the security deposit subaccount, if any) in accordance with Section 2.3(e) above. Until expended or applied, amounts held in the Collections Accounts or the Cash Management Account (other than funds held in any lease security deposit subaccount) shall constitute additional security for the Obligations.
Section 1.10Intentionally omitted.
Section 1.11Project Releases. Provided that no Event of Default exists (unless the matter giving rise to such Event of Default can be cured by effectuating a Project Release), Borrower may obtain the release of a Project (a “Project Release”) from the lien of the Mortgage thereon (and other related Loan Documents) and the release of the applicable Borrower’s obligations under the Loan Documents with respect to such Project (other than those expressly stated to survive) in connection with (and at the time of) the conveyance of such Project or Projects pursuant to an arm’s length transaction with a Person that is not an Affiliate of Borrower or Guarantor, upon the satisfaction of each of the following conditions:

Article 3

INSURANCE, CONDEMNATION AND IMPOUNDS
Section 1.1Insurance. Borrower shall maintain insurance for the benefit of Lender as follows:
(a)Casualty; Business Interruption.
(i)Property insurance against loss customarily included under so called “all risk” policies including flood, collapse, theft and earthquake, boiler and machinery, acts of terrorism, and such other insurable hazards as, under good insurance practices, from time to time are insured against for other property and buildings similar to the premises in nature, use, location, height and type of construction. Such insurance policy shall also insure the additional expense of demolition and increased cost of construction due to the enforcement of Legal Requirements regulating reconstruction at the time of rebuilding following a loss, which insurance for demolition and increased cost of construction must be 100% of the building value for the undamaged portion of the building and may contain a sublimit of $3,000,000.00 or ten percent (10%) of the replacement cost value of improvements each of demolition and increased cost of construction (twenty percent (20%) of the replacement cost value of improvements if demolition and increased cost of construction limits are combined). The amount of such “all risk” insurance shall be not less than one hundred percent (100%) of the replacement cost value of the improvements. Each such insurance policy shall contain an agreed amount (coinsurance waiver) and replacement cost value endorsement and shall cover, without limitation, all tenant improvements and betterments, which Borrower is required to insure in accordance with any lease.
(ii)If any portion of the improvements is located within an area designated as “flood prone” or a “special flood hazard area” (as defined under the regulations adopted under the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968 and the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973), flood insurance shall be provided, in an amount not less than the maximum limit of coverage available under the federal flood insurance plan with respect to the Project. Lender reserves the right to require flood insurance in excess of that available under the federal flood insurance plan. Should the available aggregate limits of flood insurance be eroded by losses so that the remaining limits available to pay losses are less than forty percent (40%) of the required limits, Borrower shall promptly purchase additional coverage to restore the available limit and aggregate limit to not less than eighty percent (80%) of the required amount of flood insurance. Amounts of flood insurance required by this paragraph (a)(ii) shall be solely for the protection of the improvements. If the amounts of flood insurance required by any ground lease, condominium declaration, reciprocal easement agreement, covenants, conditions and restrictions, or the like are greater than the amounts required herein, then Borrower shall maintain such higher amounts of flood insurance. If the flood insurance and associated aggregate limits are shared among other locations, then the risks associated with other locations also insured in the same policy shall be taken into consideration in determining the amount of flood insurance to be provided herein.
    22
US_ACTIVE\123288794\V-8


(iii)Comprehensive boiler and machinery insurance covering all mechanical and electrical equipment against physical damage on a replacement cost basis. The minimum amount of limits to be provided shall be $20,000,000.00 per accident or 100% of the building replacement cost value of improvements per accident.
(iv)Rent loss and/or business interruption insurance on an actual loss sustained basis as an extension to coverage required by (i) and (ii) above, in an amount not less than the amount of rent receivable or business income earned in a 12-month period and additionally providing a 365-day extended period of indemnity. Lender shall be named as loss payee as respects this coverage.
(v)During any period of repair or restoration and any other period when construction is occurring, builder’s “All-Risk” insurance in an amount equal to not less than the full insurable completed value of the Project against such risks (including so called “all risk” perils coverage and collapse of the Improvements) to agreed limits as Lender may request, in form and substance acceptable to Lender.
(vi)The amount of earthquake insurance shall be based on a “Probable Maximum Loss” Study (“PML”) for each Project, which must be conducted by a seismic engineering company satisfactory to Lender. The results of the PML study, on an individual location basis and for all locations insured in the same earthquake insurance policies, shall be used to determine the amount of earthquake coverage to be provided by Borrower. The amount of insurance shall be determined by adding the total expected damage to all improvements subject to a single earthquake event in a given region together with the expected loss of rental income for each property, singly and collectively, for a given regional event. Earthquake insurance shall provide a limit inclusive of rent loss for “Very High,” “High,” and “Moderate” Hazard Earthquake Risk ratings at twice the annual rental amount. Other lower risk-rated buildings, as determined by Lender, shall provide one times the annual rental loss. The total amount of earthquake insurance in limits shall be the sum of expected property damage, reconstruction cost and rental income loss calculation. Should the available aggregate limits of earthquake insurance be eroded by losses so that the remaining limits available to pay losses are less than forty percent (40%) of the required limits, Borrower shall purchase additional coverage to restore the available limit and aggregate limit to not less than eighty percent (80%) of the required amount of earthquake insurance. Amounts of earthquake insurance required by this paragraph (a)(vi) shall be solely for the protection of the improvements. If the amounts of earthquake insurance required by any ground lease, condominium declaration, reciprocal easement agreement, covenants, conditions and restrictions, or the like are greater than the amounts required herein, then Borrower shall maintain such higher amounts of earthquake insurance. If the earthquake insurance and associated aggregate limits are shared among other locations, then the risks associated with other locations also insured in the same policy shall be taken into consideration in determining the amount of earthquake insurance to be provided herein.
(vii)Intentionally omitted.
(viii)The policies of insurance set forth in the foregoing clauses (i), (iii), (iv) and (v) shall not exclude from coverage acts of terrorism and such policies, therefore, shall include one hundred percent (100%) replacement cost insurance without co-insurance for damage to, or loss of rents from, the Project caused by terrorist activities. All policies of insurance set forth in this Section 3.1(a) shall have deductibles of not more than five percent (5%) of the insurable value of the Project. Should the available aggregate limits of terrorism coverage be eroded by losses so that the remaining limits available to pay losses are less than forty percent (40%) of the required limits, Borrower shall purchase additional coverage to restore the available limit and aggregate limit to not less than eighty percent (80%) of the required amount of terrorism coverage. Amounts of terrorism coverage required by this paragraph (a)(viii) shall be solely for the protection of the improvements. If the amounts of terrorism coverage required by any
    23
US_ACTIVE\123288794\V-8


ground lease, condominium declaration, reciprocal easement agreement, covenants, conditions and restrictions, or the like are greater than the amounts required herein, then Borrower shall maintain such higher amounts of terrorism coverage. If terrorism coverage and associated aggregate limits are shared among other locations, then the risks associated with other locations also insured in the same policy shall be taken into consideration in determining the amount of terrorism coverage to be provided herein.
(b)Liability.
(i)General public liability insurance, including, without limitation, commercial general liability insurance; owned (if any), hired and non-owned auto liability; and umbrella liability coverage for personal injury, bodily injury, death, accident and property damage, providing in combination no less than $35,000,000.00 per occurrence ($50,000,000.00 during construction) and in the annual aggregate, per location. If aggregate limits are shared among more than one location, a $35,000,000.00 limit shall be obtained. The policies described in this paragraph shall cover, without limitation: elevators, escalators, independent contractors, contractual liability (covering, to the maximum extent permitted by law the mortgagor’s obligation to indemnify the mortgagee as required under this Agreement) products and completed operations liability coverage.
(ii)Workers’ compensation and disability insurance as required by law.
(c)Form and Quality. All insurance policies shall be endorsed in form and substance acceptable to Lender to name Lender as an additional insured, loss payee or mortgagee thereunder, as its interest may appear, with loss payable to Lender, without contribution, under a standard New York (or local equivalent) mortgagee clause. With respect to all insurance under Section 3.1(a), no Person other than Lender shall be named as loss payee. All premiums for such insurance policies and endorsements shall be paid for (and evidence of such payment shall be delivered to Lender) not later than thirty (30) calendar days prior to the next ensuing policy year. All such policies and endorsements shall contain such provisions and expiration dates and be in such form and issued by such insurance companies licensed or authorized to do business in the State, with a rating of “A:X” or better as established by Best’s Rating Guide (or a lesser or equivalent rating approved in writing by Lender). If any insurance company issuing such insurance shall no longer have such required rating, Borrower shall, within ten (10) Business Days after notice from Lender, cause a replacement insurance policy(ies) to be issued by an insurance company licensed to do business in the State which has such required rating (upon issuance of such replacement insurance policy(ies), Lender will simultaneously release the insurance policy(ies) being replaced). If any insurance company issuing such insurance shall enter into any form of regulatory or governmental receivership or other similar regulatory or governmental proceeding, or is otherwise declared insolvent or required to run off its insurance coverages, Borrower shall, within five (5) Business Days, deliver to Lender a replacement insurance policy(ies) to be issued by an insurance company licensed to do business in the State which has such required rating. Each policy shall provide that such policy may not be cancelled or materially changed except upon thirty (30) days’ prior written notice of intention of non-renewal, cancellation or material change to Lender and that no act or thing done by Borrower shall invalidate any policy as against Lender. Borrower shall, promptly when available, deliver copies of all original policies certified to Lender by the insurance company or authorized agent as being true copies, together with the endorsements required hereunder; provided, however, Lender shall not be deemed by reason of the custody of such insurance policies to have knowledge of the contents thereof. The proceeds of insurance policies coming into the possession of Lender shall not be deemed trust funds, and Lender shall be entitled to apply such proceeds as herein provided. Borrower may effect such coverage under its blanket insurance policies, provided that (i) any such policy of blanket insurance either shall specify therein, or Borrower shall furnish Lender with written statement from the insurer under such policy so specifying, (x) the maximum amount of the total insurance afforded by the blanket policy allocated to the Project and (y) any sublimits in such blanket policy applicable to the Project, which amounts shall not be less than the amount
    24
US_ACTIVE\123288794\V-8


required pursuant to this Section 3.1; (ii) any policy of blanket insurance hereunder shall comply in all respects with the other provisions of this Section 3.1(c); and (iii) the protection afforded Borrower under any policy of blanket insurance hereunder shall be no less than that which would have been afforded under a separate policy or policies relating only to the Project. Borrower shall not take out separate insurance concurrent in form or contributing in the event of loss with that required to be maintained under this Section 3.1 unless Lender is included thereon as a named insured with loss payable to Lender under a standard mortgage endorsement of the character and to the extent above described. Borrower shall promptly notify Lender whenever any such separate insurance is taken out and shall promptly deliver to Lender the policy or policies of such insurance. Each insurance policy shall contain a provision whereby the insurer: (1) waives any right to claim any premiums and commissions against Lender, provided that the policy need not waive the requirement that the premium be paid in order for a claim to be paid to the insured, and (2) provides that Lender is permitted to make payments to effect the continuation of such policy upon notice of cancellation due to non-payment of premiums. In the event any insurance policy (except for general public and other liability and workers compensation insurance) shall contain breach of warranty provisions, such policy shall provide that with respect to the interest of Lender, such insurance policy shall not be invalidated by and shall insure Lender regardless of (X) any act, failure to act or negligence of or violation of warranties, declarations or conditions contained in such policy by any named insured, (Y) the occupancy or use of the premises for purposes more hazardous than permitted by the terms thereof, or (Z) any foreclosure or other action or proceeding taken by Lender pursuant to any provision of this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents.
(d)Adjustments. Borrower shall give immediate written notice of any loss to the insurance carrier and to Lender. With respect to any loss exceeding $650,000.00, Borrower hereby irrevocably authorizes and empowers Lender, as attorney-in-fact for Borrower coupled with an interest, to make proof of loss, to adjust and compromise any claim under insurance policies, to appear in and prosecute any action arising from such insurance policies, to collect and receive insurance proceeds, and to deduct therefrom Lender’s expenses incurred in the collection of such proceeds. Nothing contained in this Section 3.1(d), however, shall require Lender to incur any expense or take any action hereunder.
(e)Lender’s Right to Procure Insurance. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, if at any time Lender is not in receipt of written evidence that all insurance required hereunder is maintained in full force and effect, Lender shall have the right (but not the obligation), upon notice to Borrower, to take such action as Lender deems necessary to protect its interests in the Project, including, without limitation, the obtaining of such insurance coverage as Lender deems appropriate, and all premiums paid and expenses incurred by Lender in connection with such action shall be paid by Borrower and shall be secured by the Mortgage.
(f)Delivery of Policies. Borrower shall promptly when available deliver to Lender certified copies of the insurance policies required to be maintained pursuant to this Section 3.1, provided, however, Lender shall not be deemed by reason of the custody of such insurance policies or copies thereof to have knowledge of the contents thereof. Borrower also shall deliver to Lender, within ten (10) days of Lender’s request, a certificate of each insurance carrier evidencing the coverages set forth herein together with evidence that all insurance premiums due thereon have been paid and that such coverages are in full force and effect. Not later than thirty (30) days prior to the expiration date of each of the insurance policies, Borrower shall deliver to Lender binders of all such renewal insurance policies. Such proof of renewal insurance shall include evidence satisfactory to Lender that all insurance premiums therefor have been paid and that the insurance coverages are in full force and effect. Any certificate of insurance delivered to Lender in compliance with the requirements of this Agreement shall include a letter from the relevant insurance company confirming that the entity issuing such certificate of insurance is authorized to do so, and in delivering such certificate they are acting as an agent of the insurance company providing the coverage. If such letter is not provided, then Lender will only accept insurance company issued binders confirming that the required insurance is in full force and effect.

(d)insurance proceeds applied to restoration will be disbursed on receipt of satisfactory plans and specifications, contracts and subcontracts, schedules, budgets, permits, lien waivers and architects’ certificates, and otherwise in accordance with prudent commercial construction lending practices, terms and conditions for construction loan advances;
(e)the net proceeds of rent loss and/or business interruption insurance shall be paid to Lender, with any excess available after payment of principal, interest and any other amounts due under the Loan being held by Lender; and
(f)any excess insurance proceeds remaining after restoration of the Project and payment of all costs of the same may be either applied to the reduction of the Principal Balance of the Loan or, if no Event of Default exists, paid to Borrower. Provided no Event of Default exists, any such prepayment of the Loan shall not be subject to Prepayment Fee.
Section 1.3Condemnation Awards. Borrower shall immediately notify Lender of the institution of any proceeding for the condemnation or other taking of the Project or any portion thereof. Lender may participate in any such proceeding and Borrower will deliver to Lender all instruments necessary or required by Lender to permit such participation. Without Lender’s prior consent, Borrower (a) shall not agree to any compensation or award, and (b) shall not take any action or fail to take any action which would cause the compensation to be determined. All awards and compensation for the taking or purchase in lieu of condemnation of the Project or any part thereof are hereby assigned to and shall be paid to Lender, which payments shall not be subject to a Prepayment Fee. Borrower authorizes Lender to collect and receive such awards and compensation, to give proper receipts and acquittances therefor, and in Lender’s sole discretion to apply the same toward the payment of the Loan, which payments shall not be subject to a Prepayment Fee, notwithstanding that the Loan may not then be due and payable, or to the restoration of the Project; provided, however, if the award is less than or equal to $250,000.00 and Borrower requests that such proceeds be used for non-structural site improvements (such as landscape, driveway, walkway and parking area repairs) required to be made as a result of such condemnation, Lender will apply the award to such restoration in accordance with disbursement procedures applicable to insurance proceeds, provided there exists no Event of Default. In the event that
    26
US_ACTIVE\123288794\V-8


Lender permits such compensation or award to be applied towards restoration of the Project, any excess amounts remaining after restoration of the Project may be either applied to the reduction of the Principal Balance of the Loan, in which case no Prepayment Fee shall be payable in connection therewith, or, if no Event of Default exists, paid to Borrower, in Lender’s sole discretion. Borrower, upon request by Lender, shall execute all instruments requested to confirm the assignment of the awards and compensation to Lender, free and clear of all Liens, charges or encumbrances.
Section 1.4Impounds. Subject to Section 2.6(d) with respect to Taxes and insurance premiums, Lender may elect that Borrower shall deposit with Lender monthly, one-twelfth (1/12th) of the annual charges for ground or other rent, if any, insurance premiums and real estate taxes, assessments and similar charges relating to the Project, and Borrower shall do all things necessary or desirable to comply with Lender election. At or before the initial advance of the Loan, Borrower shall deposit with Lender a sum of money which together with the monthly installments will be sufficient to make each of such payments thirty (30) days prior to the date any delinquency or penalty becomes due with respect to such payments. Deposits shall be made on the basis of Lender’s estimate from time to time of the charges for the current year (after giving effect to any reassessment or, at Lender’s election, on the basis of the charges for the prior year, with adjustments when the charges are fixed for the then current year). All funds so deposited shall be held by Lender and may be commingled with Lender’s general funds. Borrower hereby grants to Lender a continuing security interest in all funds so deposited with Lender for the purpose of securing the Loan. The funds deposited may, at Lender’s sole election, be applied in payment of the charges for which such funds have been deposited, provided that while an Event of Default exists, such funds may be applied to the payment of the Loan or any other charges affecting the security of Lender, as Lender may elect, but no such application shall be deemed to have been made by operation of law or otherwise until actually made by Lender. Borrower shall furnish Lender with bills for the charges for which such deposits are required at least thirty (30) days prior to the date on which the charges first become payable. If at any time the amount on deposit with Lender, together with amounts to be deposited by Borrower before such charges are payable, is insufficient to pay such charges, Borrower shall deposit any deficiency with Lender immediately upon demand. Lender shall pay such charges when the amount on deposit with Lender is sufficient to pay such charges and Lender has received a bill for such charges.

COVENANTS
During the term of the Loan and so long as any Obligations are outstanding, Borrower covenants and agrees with Lender as follows:
Section 1.1Due on Sale and Encumbrance; Transfers of Interests.
(a)Without the prior approval of Lender, which may be withheld in its sole and absolute discretion, the Loan shall become due and payable upon the occurrence of any Transfer (other than a Permitted Transfer).
(a)With respect to any and all Transfer(s), if such Transfer is of five percent (5%) or more of the direct or indirect interests in Borrower (or such lesser percentage as may be required from time to time under applicable Legal Requirements), Borrower shall provide Lender with (i) prior notice of such Transfer (or if no Loan Party had prior notice of such Transfer, promptly upon any Loan Party having such knowledge), (ii) sufficient information about the transferee so that Lender may fulfill its “know your customer” requirements (which, by way of example, may include the receipt and review of copies of operating agreements, by-laws, partnership agreements, articles of incorporation, articles of organization, certificates of formation, certificates of good standing, W-9 forms, updated organizational charts, valid governmental forms of identification and such other information or documentation reasonably required by Lender with respect to such “know your customer” requirements) and (iii) such other information or documentation reasonably required by Lender from time to time with respect to such “know your customer” requirements. Any Permitted Transfer shall be conditioned upon Lender’s confirmation (which confirmation shall not be unreasonably delayed) that such transferee is neither a Sanctioned Party, a Prohibited Person or a restricted person described in Article 13, failing which such proposed Permitted Transfer shall be void ab initio; provided that a Permitted Transfer due to death shall not be subject to the aforementioned condition.
(b)Nothing contained in Section 8.1(i) shall limit the prohibitions contained in Article 13, nor shall any Below the Fund Transfer involve a Person (i) with whom Lender is adverse in any pending litigation or arbitration, (ii) with whom Lender is prohibited by Legal Requirements from conducting business, or (iii) is a Sanctioned Party or a Prohibited Person.
(c)Intentionally omitted.
(d)Notwithstanding the provisions of this Section 8.1, if no Event of Default exists, Lender shall permit, in a transaction approved by Lender in its sole discretion, one (1) transfer or sale of the Project during the term of the Loan, without an increase in the rate of interest payable under the Note or any other material changes in the Loan Documents, provided that each of Borrower and the proposed transferee satisfies all conditions set forth in the Loan Documents, including without limitation the following: (i) Lender shall receive a written request for its approval at least ninety (90) days before the proposed transfer, which request shall specify the identity of the proposed transferee, the purchase price and other terms of the transaction, shall include a copy of the proposed contract of sale, and shall be accompanied by the financial statements, tax returns, and organizational documents of the proposed transferee and its principals and any other documents or information required by Lender (including without limitation, all information required by Lender to satisfy its “know your customer” requirements); (ii) the transferee shall expressly, unconditionally and fully assume, without modification, the Note, each of the other Loan Documents, and all obligations and liabilities thereunder, which assumption shall be in form and substance satisfactory to Lender in its sole discretion; (iii) the transferee and its ownership structure, reputation, financial strength, credit history, demonstrated property management expertise ( or property manager of the proposed transferee) and principals are each satisfactory to Lender in its sole discretion; (iv) a replacement guarantor that satisfies the Financial Covenants and is otherwise acceptable to Lender shall execute an Indemnity Agreement, a Recourse Indemnity and any other Loan Documents executed by Guarantor, in the

form originally executed by Guarantor; (v) Borrower and Guarantor shall retain liability under the Loan Documents for matters arising before or in connection with the transfer; (vi) Borrower or the transferee pays to Lender at or prior to the time of transfer a sum equal to one-half of one percent (0.50%) of the Principal Balance, together with all of Lender’s costs and expenses incurred in connection with the proposed transfer, including reasonable attorneys’ fees; (vii) Borrower provides to Lender a true and correct copy of the as-recorded deed or other instrument by which such transfer is made and such Appraisals, Site Assessments, property condition reports and other third party reports as Lender requires; (viii) Borrower provided to Lender a letter authorizing transfer to the transferee of any Reserve Funds then on deposit with Lender; (ix) Lender receives satisfactory evidence from the proposed transferee of all insurance required under this Agreement; (x) Lender receives an endorsement to the Title Policy insuring the continued validity and priority of the Mortgage following the assumption and such other endorsements as Lender requires, without any new exceptions other than those approved by Lender in writing; and (xi) the transferee provides to Lender such opinions as it requires as a condition to approving the transfer.
Section 1.2Taxes; Charges. Borrower shall pay before any fine, penalty, interest or cost may be added thereto, and shall not enter into any agreement to defer, any real estate taxes and assessments, franchise taxes and charges, and other governmental charges that may become a Lien upon the Project or become payable during the term of the Loan, and will promptly furnish Lender with evidence of such payment, except when funds in the appliable Reserve Account are sufficient to pay the same. Borrower shall not suffer or permit the joint assessment of the Project with any other real property constituting a separate tax lot or with any other real or personal property. Borrower shall pay when due all claims and demands of mechanics, materialmen, laborers and others which, if unpaid, might result in a Lien on the Project; however, Borrower may contest the validity of such claims and demands so long as (a) Borrower notifies Lender that it intends to contest such claim or demand, (b) Borrower provides Lender with an indemnity, bond or other security satisfactory to Lender (including an endorsement to Lender’s title insurance policy insuring against such claim or demand) assuring the discharge of Borrower’s Obligations for such claims and demands, including interest and penalties, and (c) Borrower is diligently contesting the same by appropriate legal proceedings in good faith and at its own expense and concludes such contest prior to the thirtieth (30th) day preceding the earlier to occur of the Maturity Date or the date on which the Project is scheduled to be sold for non-payment.

Borrower shall maintain the Project in good condition and promptly repair any damage or casualty. Borrower shall permit Lender and its agents, representatives and employees, upon reasonable prior notice to Borrower (except that in the event of an emergency, no advance notice shall be necessary), to inspect the Project and conduct such environmental and engineering studies as Lender may require, provided such inspections and studies do not materially interfere with the use and operation of each Project.

(a)Borrower acknowledges that Lender and its successors and assigns may without notice to or consent from Borrower (i) sell this Agreement, the Mortgage, the Note, the other Loan Documents, and any and all servicing rights thereto to one or more investors as a whole loan, (ii) participate the Loan to one or more investors, (iii) deposit this Agreement, the Note and the other Loan Documents with a trust, which trust may sell certificates to investors evidencing an ownership interest in the trust assets, or (iv) otherwise sell or encumber the Loan or interests therein to investors (the transactions referred to in clauses (i) through (iv) are hereinafter each referred to as a “Secondary Market Transaction”).  Borrower shall cooperate with Lender in effecting any such Secondary Market Transaction and shall cooperate to implement all requirements imposed by any rating agency involved in any Secondary Market Transaction.  Borrower further agrees that Lender may, without any notice to or consent from Borrower, disseminate to any such actual or potential purchaser(s), assignee(s), lender(s) or participant(s) all documents and information (including all financial information) which has been or is hereafter provided to or known to Lender with respect to: (a) the Project and its operation; (b) any party connected with the Loan (including Borrower, any Borrower Party, any partner of Borrower or any Borrower Party, any constituent partner or member of Borrower or any Borrower Party), and/or (c) any lending relationship other than the Loan which Lender may have with any party connected with the Loan. Borrower shall provide such information and documents (and updated information and documents) relating to Borrower, Guarantor and the Project as Lender may request in connection with such Secondary Market Transaction, together with such opinion(s) of counsel as Lender may reasonably request.  In addition, Borrower shall make available to Lender all information concerning its business and operations that Lender may reasonably request.  Lender shall be permitted to share all such information with the investment banking firms, rating agencies, accounting firms, law firms and other third-party advisory firms involved with the Loan and the Loan Documents or the applicable Secondary Market Transaction.  It is understood that the information provided by Borrower to Lender may ultimately be incorporated into the offering documents for the Secondary Market Transaction and thus various investors may also see some or all of the information.  Lender and all of the aforesaid third-party advisors and professional firms shall be entitled to rely on the information supplied by or on behalf of Borrower.  Borrower also agrees to execute any amendment of or supplement to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as Lender may reasonably request in connection with any Secondary Market Transaction, provided that such amendment or supplement does not change any of the economic terms of the Loan or materially increase Borrower’s non-monetary Obligations or materially diminish Borrower’s rights under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. All reasonable third party costs and expenses incurred by any Loan Party in connection with Borrower’s complying with requests made under this Section 8.15 shall be paid by Lender, except for Borrower’s attorneys’ fees. In the event of any such sale, assignment, encumbrance, grant or participation, Lender and the parties to such transaction will share in the rights and obligations of Lender as set forth in the Loan Documents only as and to the extent they agree among themselves.
(b)Lender shall have the right, at its own expense, at any time, to modify the Loan in order to create one or more notes of equal or varying priority and/or interest rates (including, without limitation, so-called “A/B Notes”); provided, that:  (i) the Principal Balance
    43
US_ACTIVE\123288794\V-8


of the Loan as of the effective date of such modification equals the Principal Balance of the Loan immediately prior to such modification; and (ii) the weighted average stated interest rate of all such notes on the date created shall equal the stated interest rates that were applicable to the Loan immediately prior to such modification of the Loan.  Lender shall have the right to modify the Loan in accordance with this Section 8.15(b) upon notice to Borrower in which event such modification shall then be deemed effective.  If requested by Lender, Borrower shall promptly execute an amendment to this Agreement, the Note and the other Loan Documents to evidence such modification; provided that such amendment shall have no materially adverse tax consequences to Borrower or any of its direct or indirect owners.  Borrower shall, at its own expense, cooperate with all reasonable requests of Lender in order to establish the “component” notes and shall execute and deliver such documents as shall reasonably be required by Lender in connection therewith.
(c)The indemnity obligations of Borrower under the Loan Documents (including under Section 8.12) will also apply with respect to any purchaser, assignee, lender or participant. Anything in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, and without the need to comply with any of the formal or procedural requirements of this Agreement, including this Section 8.15, Lender may (without notice to Borrower and without payment of any fee) at any time and from time to time pledge and assign all or any portion of its rights under all or any of the Loan Documents to a Federal Reserve Bank or a Federal Home Loan Bank; provided that no such pledge or assignment will release Lender from its obligations thereunder. In the event Lender sells or assigns the Loan and the Loan Documents, Lender will endeavor to give Borrower notice thereof (without liability for failure to so deliver such notice).
(d)At the option of Lender, the Loan may be serviced by a master servicer, primary servicer, special servicer and/or trustee (any such master servicer, primary servicer, special servicer, and trustee, together with its agents, nominees or designees, are collectively referred to as “Servicer”) selected by Lender and Lender may delegate all or any portion of its responsibilities under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents to Servicer pursuant to a pooling and servicing agreement, servicing agreement, special servicing agreement or other agreement providing for the servicing of one or more mortgage loans (collectively, the “Servicing Agreement”) between Lender and Servicer. Borrower shall be responsible for any reasonable set up fees or any other initial costs relating to or arising under the Servicing Agreement, but Borrower shall not be responsible for payment of the regular monthly master servicing fee or trustee fee due to Servicer under the Servicing Agreement or any fees or expenses required to be borne by, and not reimbursable to, Servicer. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Borrower shall promptly reimburse Lender on demand for (i) interest payable on advances made by Servicer with respect to delinquent debt service payments (to the extent charges are due under this Agreement and interest at the Default Rate actually paid by Borrower in respect of such payments is insufficient to pay the same) and expenses paid by Servicer or trustee in respect of the protection and preservation of the Project (including, without limitation, payments of Taxes and insurance premiums) and (ii) all of the following costs and expenses, liquidation fees, workout fees, special servicing fees, operating advisor fees or any other similar fees payable by Lender to Servicer: (A) as a result of an Event of Default or the Loan becoming specially serviced, an enforcement, refinancing or restructuring of the credit arrangements provided under this Agreement in the nature of a “work-out” of the Loan Documents or of any insolvency or bankruptcy proceeding; (B) any liquidation fees, workout fees, special servicing fees, operating advisor fees or any other similar fees that are due and payable to Servicer under the Servicing Agreement or the trustee, which fees may be due and payable under the Servicing Agreement on a periodic or continuing basis; (C) the costs of all property inspections and/or appraisals of the Project (or any updates to any existing inspection or appraisal) that Servicer or the trustee may be required to obtain (other than the cost of regular annual inspections required to be borne by Servicer under the Servicing Agreement); or (D) any special requests made by Borrower or Guarantor during the term of the Loan including, without limitation, in connection with a prepayment, assumption or modification of the Loan.
Section 1.16Required Debt Yield; Cash Sweep.
    44
US_ACTIVE\123288794\V-8


(a)The Debt Yield shall be calculated quarterly, beginning on the first Test Date, by Borrower within thirty (30) days following the end of the immediately preceding calendar quarter. Borrower shall promptly certify to Lender such calculation in writing, together with all statements and background information used for such calculation. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Lender may complete its separate calculation of Debt Yield as of such Test Date, which shall be binding on Borrower absent manifest error.
(b)Beginning on the date hereof and continuing until the Obligations are satisfied in full, Borrower covenants that the Projects shall maintain an aggregate Debt Yield of not less than 8.00%.
(c)If at any time (and from time to time) the aggregate Debt Yield is less than 8.00%, Lender may in its sole discretion send a Redirection Notice, which shall cause Lender to have full control of the Collections Account in accordance with Section 2.9 until a Cash Sweep Cure Event.
(d) If at any time (and from time to time) Debt Yield is less than 7.35%, then Borrower shall deposit with Lender a cash reserve (the “Interest Reserve Funds”) in an amount as, when deducted from the Principal Balance, would cause the Debt Yield to be no less than 7.45% (the “Debt Yield Deposit Requirement”). If prior to the occurrence of such failure to achieve at least a 7.35% Debt Yield, a Cash Sweep Period was already ongoing, then Lender shall first apply funds in the Cash Management Account to satisfy the Debt Yield Deposit Requirement. The Interest Reserve Funds shall be returned to Borrower when Project achieves a Debt Yield of no less than 7.45% for two (2) consecutive calendar quarters (without taking the Interest Reserve Funds into consideration for such Debt Yield calculation), and provided that no other Cash Sweep Period or Event of Default is then ongoing.
Section 1.17Financial Covenants. Borrower shall cause Guarantor to maintain throughout the term of the Loan (a) a consolidated net worth of not less than $75,000,000, as reasonably determined by Lender, and (b) minimum liquidity of $6,000,000 (consisting only of available cash and/or readily marketable securities traded on a major U.S. domestic, public stock exchange). Lender shall test Guarantor’s consolidated net worth, minimum liquidity and contingent liabilities on an semi-annual basis. The foregoing financial requirements and covenants imposed upon Guarantor are referred to in this Agreement as the “Financial Covenants.” With respect to Guarantor’s minimum liquidity, liquid assets shall be deemed to include only cash and cash equivalents, obligations of the U.S. government supported by its full faith and credit, certificates of deposit issued by commercial banks which at all times are rated in the highest short-term rating category by each Rating Agency, securities listed and traded on a recognized stock exchange or traded over the counter and listed in the National Association of Securities Dealers Automatic Quotations and liquid debt instruments that have a readily ascertainable value and are regularly traded in a recognized financial market, none of which liquid assets have been pledged, encumbered or otherwise restricted in use, including, without limitation, by operation of any applicable cash management system.
Section 1.18Ground Lease. Borrower will fully and faithfully comply at all times with each of the following covenants:
(a)(i) Borrower shall timely pay all rents, additional rents and other sums required to be paid by it under and pursuant to the provisions of the Ground Lease, (ii) Borrower will diligently perform, observe and comply with all of the other terms, covenants, conditions, promises, duties, liabilities, obligations and provisions (other than those of a de minimis nature) of the Ground Lease, (iii) Borrower shall promptly notify Agent in writing of any event of default under the Ground Lease actually known to Borrower, and shall send to Agent a true copy of any notice of default served on Borrower relating to the Ground Lease within five (5) Business Days of receipt; provided that if Agent is copied on any such notice, Borrower shall be deemed to have notified Agent of such default notice, (iv) Borrower shall promptly notify Agent upon obtaining knowledge thereof of any bankruptcy, reorganization or insolvency under the Ground Lease or of any notice thereof, and deliver to Agent a true copy of such notice within
    45
US_ACTIVE\123288794\V-8


five (5) Business Days of Borrower’s receipt thereof, together with copies in each case of all notices, pleadings, schedules and similar matters received by Borrower in connection with such bankruptcy, reorganization or insolvency within five (5) Business Days after receipt thereof, and (v) Borrower shall not surrender the leasehold estate created by the Ground Lease or terminate or cancel the Ground Lease without first obtaining the prior written consent of Agent, which consent may be withheld or given in Agent's sole and absolute discretion.
(b)Borrower shall give Agent duplicates of all written notices, reports, statements and the like which it is obligated or elects to give under the Ground Lease or which it receives under the Ground Lease. Whenever in the Ground Lease Borrower shall have the right to request any information, statements, documents, canceled receipts or anything else whatsoever, Agent shall have the right to request the same from Borrower hereunder, and such information, statements, documents, canceled receipts and other requested material shall thereafter be given to Agent as if Agent had requested the same.
(c)If Borrower shall default in the performance or observance of any term, covenant or condition of the Ground Lease (other than those defaults of a de minimis nature), as tenant thereunder, and shall fail to cure the same prior to the expiration of any applicable cure period provided thereunder, Agent and any Person designated by it shall have the right, upon ten (10) Business Days’ prior notice to Borrower (unless Agent has reasonably determined that the failure to cure imminently could result in a termination of the Ground Lease or a Material Adverse Effect, in which case, no prior notice shall be required) but shall be under no obligation, to pay any sums and to perform any act or take any action as may be appropriate to cause all of the terms, covenants and conditions (other than those of a de minimis nature) of the Ground Lease on the part of Borrower to be performed or observed on behalf of Borrower, to the end that the rights of Borrower in, to and under the Ground Lease shall be kept unimpaired and free from default. If Borrower shall deliver to Agent a copy of any notice of default under the Ground Lease, such notice shall constitute full protection to Agent for any action taken or omitted to be taken by Agent, in good faith, in reliance thereon. Any and all out-of-pocket costs and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable legal fees and disbursements of outside counsel) actually incurred by Agent in connection with any such actions beyond all applicable notice and cure periods to Borrower under the Ground Lease will be due and payable by Borrower within ten (10) Business Days after written demand by Agent and will bear interest at the Default Rate, from the date of the demand until repaid.
(d)In the event that Agent determines from time to time in good faith, but in no event more than one (1) time in any calendar year or otherwise during the continuance of a Default or an Event of Default, that receipt of an estoppel certificate relating to the Ground Lease executed by Borrower is necessary or appropriate, then upon Agent’s written request, Borrower will use commercially reasonable efforts to deliver to Agent an estoppel certificate relating to the Ground Lease in form and substance in accordance with the terms of the Ground Lease.
(e)Agent shall have the right to appear in (during the continuance of a Default or an Event of Default) and, at all times, participate in all proceedings, including any arbitration proceedings, which would reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect on Agent’s security or Borrower’s interest in the leased premises under the Ground Lease. Borrower shall pay within ten (10) Business Days after written demand by Agent all reasonable out-of-pocket costs and expenses of Agent (including, but not limited to, reasonable legal fees of outside counsel and disbursements) incurred in any such proceedings.
(f)Within thirty (30) days after Agent’s reasonable request, Borrower will submit reasonably satisfactory evidence of payment of all of its monetary obligations to under the Ground Lease.
    46
US_ACTIVE\123288794\V-8

(h)Borrower hereby unconditionally assigns, transfers and sets over to Agent all of Borrower’s claims and rights to the payment of damages arising from any rejection of the Ground Lease by any owner of the Fee Estate under the Bankruptcy Code. Agent shall have the right to proceed in its own name or in the name of Borrower in respect of any claim, suit, action or proceeding relating to the rejection of the Ground Lease, including, without limitation, the right to file and prosecute, to the exclusion of Borrower, any proofs of claim, complaints, motions, applications, notices and other documents, in any case in respect to any owner of the Fee Estate under the Bankruptcy Code; provided, however, that so long as no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, Agent shall consult with Borrower prior to filing, prosecuting and settling any such proof of claim, complaint, motion, application, notice or other document in any such case. The foregoing assignment constitutes a present, irrevocable and unconditional assignment of the foregoing claims, rights and remedies, and shall continue in effect until all of the obligations secured by the Mortgage and the other Loan Documents shall have been satisfied and discharged in full. Any amounts received by Agent as damages arising out of the rejection of the Ground Lease as aforesaid shall be applied first to all reasonable and actual out-of-pocket costs and expenses of Agent (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred in connection with the exercise of any of its rights or remedies under this Section 8.18. Borrower shall promptly make, execute, acknowledge and deliver, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Agent all such instruments, agreements and other documents, as may at any time hereafter be reasonably required by Agent to effectuate and carry out the assignment made pursuant to this Section 8.18(h).
(i)If pursuant to Subsection 365(h)(1)(B) of the Bankruptcy Code, Borrower shall seek to offset against the rent reserved in the Ground Lease the amount of any damages caused by the nonperformance by any owner of the Fee Estate of any of their obligations under the Ground Lease after the rejection of the Ground Lease by any owner of the Fee Estate under the Bankruptcy Code, Borrower shall, prior to effecting such offset, notify Agent of its intent to do so, setting forth the amounts proposed to be so offset and the basis therefor. Agent shall have the right, within thirty (30) Business Days after such notice, to object to all or any part of such offset that, in the reasonable judgment of Agent, would constitute a breach of the Ground Lease, and in the event of such objection, Borrower shall not effect any offset of the amounts so objected to by Agent. Neither Agent’s failure to object as aforesaid nor any objection relating to such offset shall constitute an approval of any such offset by Agent. Borrower shall pay and protect Agent, and indemnify and save Agent harmless from and against, any and all claims, demands, actions, suits, proceedings, damages, losses, costs and expenses of every nature whatsoever (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising from or relating to any offset by Borrower against the rent reserved in the Ground Lease.
(j)If any action, proceeding, motion or notice shall be commenced or filed in respect of any owner of the Fee Estate or the Ground Lease in connection with any case under the Bankruptcy Code, Agent shall have the option, exercisable upon notice from Agent to Borrower, to conduct and control any such litigation with counsel of Agent’s choice. Agent may proceed in its own name or in the name of Borrower in connection with any such litigation and Borrower agrees to execute any and all powers, authorizations, consents or other documents reasonably required by Agent in connection therewith. Borrower shall, upon demand, pay to Agent all reasonable out-of-pocket costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) paid or incurred by Agent in connection with the conduct of any such proceedings. Any such costs or expenses not paid by Borrower as aforesaid shall be secured by the Mortgage and the other Loan Documents and shall be added to the principal amount of the Note(s). Borrower shall not commence any action, suit, proceeding or case, or file any application or make any motion, in
    47
US_ACTIVE\123288794\V-8


respect of the Ground Lease in any such case under the Bankruptcy Code without the prior written consent of Agent.
(k)Borrower shall, after obtaining actual knowledge thereof, promptly notify Agent of any filing by or against any owner of the Fee Estate of a petition under the Bankruptcy Code. Borrower shall promptly deliver to Agent, following receipt, copies of any and all notices, summonses, pleadings, applications and other documents received by Borrower in connection with any such petition and any proceedings relating thereto.
(l)If there shall be filed by or against Borrower a petition under the Bankruptcy Code and Borrower, as lessee under the Ground Lease, shall determine to reject the Ground Lease pursuant to Section 365(a) of the Bankruptcy Code, Borrower shall give Agent not less than thirty (30) days’ prior written notice of the date on which Borrower shall apply to the Bankruptcy Court for authority to reject the Ground Lease. Agent shall have the right, but not the obligation, to serve upon Borrower within such thirty (30) day period a notice stating that Agent demands that Borrower assume and assign the Ground Lease to Agent pursuant to Section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code. If Agent shall serve upon Borrower the notice described in the preceding sentence, Borrower shall not seek to reject the Ground Lease and shall comply with the demand provided for in the preceding sentence.

(b)Borrower agrees that, until the Obligations are indefeasibly satisfied in full, neither Borrower nor any other Person shall (i) close the Collections Accounts, (ii) open any accounts for the operations of the Project except for the Accounts and any other accounts approved by Lender in its sole discretion or (iii) rescind, withdraw or change the directions sent pursuant to Section 8.19(a) without Lender’s prior written consent. The foregoing shall not prohibit Borrower from opening, maintaining and utilizing one or more separate accounts for the disbursement or retention of funds that have been transferred to Borrower to the extent permitted under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents and provided that, prior to the use of such separate accounts, Borrower pledges and grants to Lender a security interest in all such funds and accounts as additional security for the Loan and enters into a control agreement(s) evidencing and/or securing such pledge as Lender shall require.
(c)Borrower hereby pledges and grants to Lender a security interest in the Collections Accounts, the other Accounts and in all such funds and accounts as additional security for the Obligations and shall enter into such control agreement(s) evidencing and/or securing such pledge as Lender shall require.

(e)During a Cash Sweep Period or Event of Default, Borrower shall provide to Lender electronic access to the Accounts.

Any fees to Borrower, Guarantor, any of their respective affiliates, principals, partners, sureties or any related Person shall be subordinate to Debt Service on the Loan. For the avoidance of any doubt, and in accordance with this Section 8.23, Guarantor may receive, as the sole member of Borrower, periodic distributions of net cash flow from operations of the Project so long as no Event of Default exists, the Loan is not in a Cash Sweep Period, and such distributions are made pursuant to the organizational documents of Borrower.

If Borrower shall fail, refuse or neglect to make any payment or perform any act required by the Loan Documents, then while any Event of Default exists, and without notice to or demand upon Borrower and without waiving or releasing any other right, remedy or recourse Lender may have because of such Event of Default, Lender may (but shall not be obligated to) make such payment or perform such act for the account of and at the expense of Borrower, and shall have the right to enter upon the Project for such purpose and to take all such action thereon and with respect to the Project as it may deem necessary or appropriate. If Lender shall elect to pay any sum due with reference to the Project, Lender may do so upon consultation with Borrower and in reliance on any bill, statement or assessment procured from the appropriate Governmental Authority or other issuer thereof without inquiring into the accuracy or validity thereof. Similarly, in making any payments to protect the security intended to be created by the Loan Documents, Lender shall consult with Borrower but shall not be bound to inquire into the validity of any apparent or threatened adverse title, lien, encumbrance, claim or charge before making an advance for the purpose of preventing or removing the same. Additionally, if any Hazardous Materials affect or threaten to affect the Project, Lender may (but shall not be obligated to) give such notices and take such actions as it deems necessary or advisable in order to abate the discharge of any Hazardous Materials or remove the Hazardous Materials. Borrower shall indemnify, defend and hold Lender harmless from and against any and all losses, liabilities, claims, damages, expenses, obligations, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs or disbursements of any kind or nature whatsoever, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, incurred or accruing by reason of any acts performed by Lender pursuant to the provisions of this Section 10.3, including those arising from the joint, concurrent, or comparative negligence of Lender, except as a result of Lender’s gross negligence or
    51
US_ACTIVE\123288794\V-8


willful misconduct. All sums paid by Lender pursuant to this Section 10.3, and all other sums expended by Lender to which it shall be entitled to be indemnified, together with interest thereon at the Default Rate from the date of such payment or expenditure until paid, shall constitute additions to the Loan, shall be secured by the Loan Documents and shall be paid by Borrower to Lender upon demand.

Section 1.2Amendments and Waivers. No amendment or waiver of any provision of the Loan Documents shall be effective unless in writing and signed by the party against whom enforcement is sought. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing herein or in any of the other Loan Documents shall be, or shall be deemed to constitute, a waiver, amendment, modification, forbearance or extension with respect to the Loan or the other Loan Documents other than in accordance with the express terms and conditions hereof for the limited and express purposes contemplated hereby. In addition, no single or multiple waivers, amendments, modifications, forbearances or extensions, whether previously entered into or entered into in the future, shall constitute, or be deemed to constitute, a course of dealing creating any additional obligation to waive, amend, modify, forbear or extend any obligations or conditions under any of the Loan Documents, unless expressly agreed in writing by the parties hereto.
Section 1.3Limitation on Interest. It is the intention of the parties hereto to conform strictly to applicable usury Legal Requirements. Accordingly, all agreements between Borrower, on one hand, and Lender, on the other hand, with respect to the Loan are hereby expressly limited so that in no event, whether by reason of acceleration of maturity or otherwise, shall the amount paid or agreed to be paid to Lender or charged by Lender for the use, forbearance or detention of the money to be lent hereunder or otherwise, exceed the maximum amount allowed by Legal Requirements. If the Loan would be usurious under applicable Legal Requirements (including the Legal Requirements of the State of New York, the State and the U.S.), then, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Loan Documents: (1) the aggregate of all consideration which constitutes interest under applicable Legal Requirements that is contracted for, taken, reserved, charged or received under the Loan Documents shall under no circumstances exceed the maximum amount of interest allowed by applicable Legal Requirements, and any excess shall be credited on the Note by the holder thereof (or, if the Note has been paid in full, refunded to Borrower); and (2) if maturity is accelerated by reason of an election by Lender, or in the event of any prepayment, then any consideration which constitutes interest may never include more than the maximum amount allowed by applicable Legal Requirements. In such case, excess interest, if any, provided for in the Loan Documents or otherwise, to the extent permitted by applicable Legal Requirements, shall be amortized, prorated, allocated and spread from the date of advance until payment in full so that the actual rate of interest is uniform through the term hereof. If such amortization, proration, allocation and spreading is not permitted under applicable Legal Requirements, then such excess interest shall be canceled automatically as of the date of such acceleration or prepayment and, if previously paid, shall be credited on the Note (or, if the Note has been paid in full, refunded to Borrower). The terms and provisions of this Section 11.3 shall control and supersede every other provision of the Loan Documents. The Loan Documents are contracts made under and shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the Legal Requirements of the State of New York, without giving effect to New York’s principles of conflicts of laws, except that if at any time U.S. federal Legal Requirements permit Lender to contract for, take, reserve, charge or receive a higher rate of interest than is allowed by the Legal Requirements of the State of New York (whether such U.S. federal Legal Requirements directly so provide or refer to the Legal Requirements of any state), then such U.S. federal Legal Requirements shall to such extent govern as to the rate of interest which Lender may contract for, take, reserve, charge or receive under the Loan Documents.
Section 1.4Invalid Provisions. If any provision of any Loan Document is held to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be fully severable; the Loan Documents shall be construed and enforced as if such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision had never comprised a part thereof; the remaining provisions thereof shall remain in full effect and shall not be affected by the illegal, invalid, or unenforceable provision or by its severance therefrom; and in lieu of such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision there shall be added automatically as a part of such Loan Document a provision as similar in terms to such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision as may be possible to be legal, valid and enforceable.
Section 1.5Reimbursement of Expenses. Borrower shall promptly upon request pay all expenses incurred by Lender in connection with the origination of the Loan and the preparation, negotiation, execution and delivery of the Loan Documents, including, without limitation, fees and expenses of Lender’s environmental, engineering, insurance and other consultants, premiums for title
    53
US_ACTIVE\123288794\V-8


insurance and endorsements thereto and fees, charges or taxes for the recording or filing of Loan Documents, and the reasonable fees and expenses of Lender’s attorneys, whether incurred by Lender prior to, on or after the date hereof. Borrower shall also promptly upon request from time to time pay all expenses of Lender in connection with the administration of the Loan, including, without limitation, amendments, modifications, consents, waivers, audit costs, inspection fees, settlement of condemnation and casualty awards, expenses, charges and expenses of any other architectural/engineering consultants. Borrower shall promptly upon request reimburse Lender for all amounts expended, advanced or incurred by Lender to collect the Note, or to enforce the rights of Lender under this Agreement or any other Loan Document, or to defend or assert the rights and claims of Lender under the Loan Documents or with respect to the Project (by litigation or other proceedings), which amounts will include, without limitation, all court costs, reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses, fees of auditors and accountants, and investigation expenses as may be incurred by Lender in connection with any such matters (whether or not litigation is instituted), together with interest at the Default Rate on each such amount from the date of disbursement until the date of reimbursement to Lender, all of which shall constitute part of the Loan and shall be secured by the Loan Documents.
Section 1.6Approvals; Third Parties; Conditions. All approval rights retained or exercised by Lender with respect to leases, contracts, plans, studies and other matters are solely to facilitate the Lender’s credit underwriting, and shall not be deemed or construed as a determination that Lender have passed on the adequacy thereof for any other purpose and may not be relied upon by Borrower or any other Person. This Agreement is for the sole and exclusive use of Lender and Borrower and may not be enforced, nor relied upon, by any Person other than Lender and Borrower. All conditions to the obligations of Lender hereunder, including the obligation to make the Loan, are imposed solely and exclusively for the benefit of Lender, its successors and assigns, and no other Person shall have standing to require satisfaction of such conditions or be entitled to assume that Lender will refuse to make the Loan in the absence of strict compliance with any or all of such conditions, and no other Person shall, under any circumstances, be deemed to be a beneficiary of such conditions, any and all of which may be freely waived in whole or in part by Lender at any time in Lender’s sole discretion.
Section 1.7Lender Not in Control; No Partnership. None of the covenants or other provisions contained in this Agreement shall, or shall be deemed to, give Lender the right or power to exercise control over the affairs or management of Borrower, the power of Lender being limited to the rights to exercise the remedies referred to in the Loan Documents. The relationship between Borrower, on the one hand, and Lender, on the other hand, is, and at all times shall remain, solely that of debtor and creditor. No covenant or provision of the Loan Documents is intended, nor shall it be deemed or construed, to create a partnership, joint venture, agency or common interest in profits or income between Lender, and Borrower or to create an equity in the Project in Lender. Lender neither undertakes nor assumes any responsibility or duty to Borrower or to any other person with respect to the Project or the Loans, except as expressly provided in the Loan Documents; and notwithstanding any other provision of the Loan Documents: (a) Lender shall not be construed as (i) a partner, joint venturer, agent, alter ego, manager, controlling person or other business associate or participant of any kind of Borrower or its stockholders, members, or partners or (ii) having a common interest in profits or income between Lender and Borrower, or to create an equity interest in the Project in Lender, and Lender intends to ever assume such status; (b) Lender shall not in any event be liable for any Debts, costs, liabilities, expenses or losses incurred or sustained by Borrower; and (c) Lender shall not be deemed responsible for or a participant in any acts, omissions or decisions of Borrower or its stockholders, members or partners.
Section 1.8Time of the Essence. Time is of the essence with respect to this Agreement.
Section 1.9Successors and Assigns. This Agreement shall be binding upon, and shall inure to the benefit of, Lender and Borrower and the respective successors and assigns of Lender and Borrower, provided that neither Borrower nor any other Borrower Party shall, without the prior consent of Lender, assign or attempt to assign any rights, duties or obligations hereunder or under any other Loan Document.
Section 1.10Renewal, Extension or Rearrangement. All provisions of the Loan Documents shall apply with equal effect to each and all promissory notes and amendments thereof hereinafter executed which in whole or in part represent a renewal, extension, increase or rearrangement of the Loan.

Section 1.11Waivers. NO COURSE OF DEALING ON THE PART OF LENDER, ITS OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, CONSULTANTS OR AGENTS, NOR ANY FAILURE OR DELAY BY LENDER WITH RESPECT TO EXERCISING ANY RIGHT, POWER OR PRIVILEGE OF LENDER UNDER ANY OF THE LOAN DOCUMENTS, SHALL OPERATE AS A WAIVER THEREOF. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, BORROWER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT LENDER SHALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO EXERCISE ANY OF ITS RIGHTS AND REMEDIES HEREUNDER AND UNDER THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS AT ANY TIME THAT AN EVENT OF DEFAULT HAS OCCURRED, WHETHER THE SAME SHALL BE MONETARY OR NON-MONETARY IN NATURE. IF LENDER ACCEPTS ANY PAYMENT(S) UNDER THE LOAN DOCUMENTS WITH KNOWLEDGE OF ANY EVENT OF DEFAULT, THEN SUCH ACCEPTANCE OF PAYMENT(S) SHALL NOT BE DEEMED A WAIVER OF SUCH EVENT OF DEFAULT. LENDER MAY ACCEPT ANY PAYMENT(S) AND THEREAFTER ENFORCE ITS RIGHTS AND REMEDIES ON ACCOUNT OF ANY EVENT OF DEFAULT THAT OCCURRED BEFORE OR AT THE TIME OF SUCH PAYMENT(S).

Section 1.16Titles of Articles, Sections and Subsections. All titles or headings to articles, sections, subsections or other divisions of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents or the exhibits hereto and thereto are only for the convenience of the parties and shall not be construed to have any effect or meaning with respect to the other content of such articles, sections, subsections or other divisions, such other content being controlling as to the agreement between the parties hereto.

Borrower authorizes Lender to issue press releases, advertisements and other promotional materials in connection with Lender’s own promotional and marketing activities, and describing the Loan in general terms or in detail and Lender’s participation in the Loan.

OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT, OR ANY COURSE OF CONDUCT, COURSE OF DEALING, STATEMENT (WHETHER VERBAL OR WRITTEN) OR ACTION OF EITHER PARTY OR ANY EXERCISE BY ANY PARTY OF THEIR RESPECTIVE RIGHTS UNDER THE LOAN DOCUMENTS OR IN ANY WAY RELATING TO THE LOAN OR THE PROJECT (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY ACTION TO RESCIND OR CANCEL THIS AGREEMENT, AND ANY CLAIM OR DEFENSE ASSERTING THAT THIS AGREEMENT WAS FRAUDULENTLY INDUCED OR IS OTHERWISE VOID OR VOIDABLE). THIS WAIVER IS A MATERIAL INDUCEMENT FOR LENDER TO ENTER THIS AGREEMENT.
Section 1.20Waiver of Punitive or Consequential Damages.

Section 1.22Entire Agreement. This Agreement and the other Loan Documents embody the entire agreement and understanding between Lender, on the one hand, and Borrower and Borrower Parties on the other hand, and supersede all prior agreements and understandings between such parties relating to the subject matter hereof and thereof.

There are no unwritten oral agreements between the parties.
Section 1.23Counterparts; Electronic Signatures.

    56
US_ACTIVE\123288794\V-8


and waives, any defense to, the validity, binding nature of, or enforceability of this Agreement or such other Loan Document based on the form of signature. An original executed counterpart shall be delivered by, or on behalf of, Borrower and Guarantor to Lender following delivery of the facsimile or electronic image, but the failure to deliver such original executed counterpart shall not affect the validity, binding nature, or enforceability of this Agreement or such other Loan Document.

No failure by Lender to perform any of its obligations hereunder shall be a valid defense to, or result in any offset against, any payments which Borrower is obligated to make under any of the Loan Documents.

Unless the contrary intention appears: a reference to a party will not include that party if it has ceased to be a party under this Agreement; a word or expression used in any other Loan Document or in any notice given in connection with any Loan Document has the same meaning in that Loan Document or notice as in this Agreement; and any obligation of Borrower or any Guarantor under the Loan Documents which is not a payment obligation remains in force for so long as any payment obligation of Borrower or any Guarantor may be or is capable of becoming outstanding under the Loan Documents.

Further, Lender may convert this Agreement or any other Loan Document into an “Electronic record” within the meaning of the ESRA and the image of such instrument in Lender’s possession shall be deemed the unique, identifiable and unalterable version of such record. As used herein “ESRA” shall mean the Electronic Signatures and Records Act, N.Y. Comp. Codes R. & Regs. Tit 9 Part 540, as amended from time to time.

Section 1.3Claims Against Lender.
(a)Lender shall not be in default under this Agreement, or under any other Loan Document, unless a written notice specifically setting forth the claim of Borrower shall have been given to Lender within one hundred eighty (180) days after Borrower first had actual knowledge or actual notice of the occurrence of the event which Borrower alleges gave rise to such claim and Lender fails to remedy or cure the default, if any there be, with reasonable promptness thereafter.
(b)If it is determined by the final order of a court of competent jurisdiction, which is not subject to further appeal, that Lender has breached any of its obligations under the Loan Documents and has not remedied or cured the same with reasonable promptness following notice thereof, then Lender’s responsibilities shall be limited to: (i) where the breach consists of the failure to grant consent or give approval in violation of the terms and requirements of the Loan Documents, the obligation to grant such consent or give such approval; and (ii) in the case of any such failure to grant such consent or give such approval, or in the case of any other default by Lender, where it is also determined that Lender acted in bad faith, or Lender’s default constituted gross negligence or willful misconduct, the payment of any actual direct, compensatory damages sustained by Borrower as a result thereof plus Borrower’s reasonable costs and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and disbursements in connection with such court proceedings.
(c)In no event, however, Lender shall not be liable to Borrower or anyone else for other damages such as, but not limited to, indirect, speculative or punitive damages
    58
US_ACTIVE\123288794\V-8


whatever the nature of the breach by Lender of its obligations under this Loan Agreement or under any of the other Loan Documents. In no event shall Lender be liable to Borrower or anyone else unless a written notice specifically setting forth the claim of Borrower shall have been given to Lender within the time period specified above.
(d)Borrower agrees that so long as any of the Obligations remains outstanding, Borrower shall not assert, and Borrower hereby waives, any right of offset, claim, counterclaim or defense against Lender or any of the Obligations, which right of offset, claim, counterclaim or defense arises out of obligations, liabilities or circumstances unrelated to the Obligations, the Loan or the Project (such offsets, claims, counterclaims or defenses being, collectively, “Unrelated Claims”). Any assignee of Lender’s interest in and to the Loan Documents shall take the same free and clear of all Unrelated Claims, and no Unrelated Claim shall be interposed or asserted by Borrower in any action or proceeding brought by any such assignee upon any of the Loan Documents, and any such right to interpose or assert any such Unrelated Claim in any such action or proceeding is hereby expressly waived by the Borrower for the benefit of such assignee.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing:
(i)Non-U.S. Lender. Any Lender that is not a “United States person” within the meaning of Section 7701(a)(30) of the Code, as amended (each, a “Non-U.S. Lender”), shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to Borrower, on or prior to the date on which such Non-U.S. Lender becomes a party to this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of Borrower), whichever of the following is applicable:
1)in the case of a Non-U.S. Lender claiming the benefits of an income tax treaty to which the U.S. is a party (x) with respect to payments of interest under any Loan Document, executed originals of U.S. Internal Revenue Service (the “IRS”) IRS Form W-8BEN or IRS Form W-8BEN-E establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. federal Withholding Tax pursuant to the “interest” article of such tax treaty and (y) with respect to any other applicable payments under any Loan Document, IRS Form W-8BEN or IRS Form W-8BEN-E establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. federal Withholding Tax pursuant to the “business profits” or “other income” article of such tax treaty;
2)executed originals of IRS Form W-8ECI;
3)in the case of a Non-U.S. Lender claiming the benefits of the exemption for portfolio interest under Section 881(c) of the Code, deliver to Borrower (x) a certificate, substantially in the form of Exhibit C-1 (any such certificate a “U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate”) to the effect that such Lender is not (A) a “bank” within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Code, (B) a “10 percent shareholder” of Borrower within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(B) of the Code or (C) a “controlled foreign corporation” described in Section 881(c)(3)(C) of the Code, and (y) executed originals of IRS Form W-8BEN or IRS Form W-8BEN-E; or
4)to the extent a Non-U.S. Lender is not the beneficial owner, executed originals of IRS Form W-8IMY, accompanied by IRS Form W-8ECI, IRS Form W-8BEN, IRS Form W-8BEN-E, a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit C-2 or Exhibit C-3, IRS Form W-9, and/or other certification documents from each beneficial owner, as applicable; provided that if the Non-U.S. Lender is a partnership and one or more direct or indirect partners of such Non-U.S. Lender are claiming the portfolio interest exemption, such Non-U.S. Lender may provide a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit C-4 on behalf of each such direct and indirect partner.
(ii)Any Non-U.S. Lender shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to Borrower, on or prior to the date on which such Non-U.S. Lender becomes a party to this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the
    Schedule 2.5-1
US_ACTIVE\123288794\V-8


reasonable request of Borrower), executed copies of any other form prescribed by applicable law as a basis for claiming exemption from or a reduction in U.S. federal Withholding Tax, duly completed, together with such supplementary documentation as may be prescribed by applicable law to permit Borrower to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made.
(iii)U.S. Lender. Any Lender that is a “United States person” within the meaning of Section 7701(a)(30) of the Code (each, a “U.S. Lender”), shall deliver to Borrower on or prior to the date on which such Lender becomes a party to this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of Borrower) an original executed IRS Form W-9 certifying that such Lender is exempt from U.S. federal backup Withholding Tax.
(iv)If a payment made to a Lender under any Loan Document would be subject to U.S. federal Withholding Tax imposed by FATCA if such Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable), such Lender shall deliver to Borrower at the time or times prescribed by Tax Requirements and at such time or times reasonably requested by Borrower such documentation prescribed by applicable Tax Requirements (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by Borrower as may be necessary for Borrower to comply with its obligations under FATCA and to determine that such Lender has complied with such Lender’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment. Solely for purposes of this paragraph (a)(iv), of this Schedule 2.5, “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.
(v)Except as provided in the following sentence, Lender further undertakes to deliver to Borrower renewals or additional copies of any form delivered pursuant to paragraphs (a)(i), (ii), (iii) or (iv) of this Schedule 2.5, above, or any successor form, (x) on or before the date that such form expires or becomes obsolete, (y) after the occurrence of any event requiring a change in the most recent form(s) so delivered by it, and (z) as may be reasonably requested by Borrower. All forms or amendments described in the preceding sentence shall be completed by such Lender and show that such Lender is entitled to receive payments under this Agreement without withholding of U.S. federal Withholding Taxes (or, in the case of IRS Form W-9, U.S. federal backup Withholding Taxes), unless an event (including any change in treaty or Tax Requirements) has occurred after the date hereof and prior to the date on which any such delivery would otherwise be required which renders all such forms inapplicable or which would prevent such Lender from duly completing and delivering any such form or amendment with respect to it and such Lender advises Borrower that it is not capable of receiving payments without any deduction of U.S. federal Withholding Taxes or U.S. federal backup Withholding Taxes.
(b)Intentionally Deleted.
(c)Withholding Taxes.
(i)Any and all payments by a Loan Party under the Loan Documents shall be made without deduction or withholding for any Taxes, except as required by Tax Requirements. In the event that any Tax is required by Tax Requirements to be withheld or deducted from any payment hereunder or under the Note or any of the other Loan Documents by a Withholding Agent, Borrower shall be entitled to make such deduction or withholding and shall timely pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant Taxing Authority in accordance with applicable Tax Requirements, and, if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax, the amount payable by such Loan Party hereunder or thereunder (as the case may be) shall be increased as necessary so that, after such deduction or withholding has been made (including such deduction or
    Schedule 2.5-2
US_ACTIVE\123288794\V-8


withholding applicable to additional sums payable under this paragraph (c)(i) of this Schedule 2.5), Lender receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received hereunder or thereunder (as the case may be) if such Indemnified Tax had not been deducted or withheld.
(ii)Loan Parties shall timely pay to the relevant Taxing Authority in accordance with applicable Tax Requirements, or, at the option of Lender, timely reimburse it for the payment of, any Other Taxes.
(iii)Loan Parties shall, jointly and severally, indemnify Lender, within ten (10) Business Days after demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Schedule 2.5) payable or paid by Lender or required to be withheld or deducted from a payment to Lender and any actual out-of-pocket costs and expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Taxing Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to Borrower by Lender, or by Lender, shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The indemnification obligations of Borrower under this paragraph (c)(iii) of this Schedule 2.5 shall survive the payment of the Obligations and termination of this Agreement.
(iv)Reserved
(v)Borrower consents to the disclosure by Lender to the IRS of any information on Borrower and its transactions with Lender that is required to be disclosed by any Legal Requirement or Tax Requirement, including, without limitation, the Code, as amended.
(vi)If any party determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Schedule 2.5 (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Schedule 2.5), it shall pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made under this Schedule 2.5 with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all actual out-of-pocket costs and expenses (including Taxes) of such indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Taxing Authority with respect to such refund. Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this paragraph (c)(vi) of this Schedule 2.5 (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Taxing Authority) in the event that such indemnified party is required to repay such refund to such Taxing Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this paragraph (c)(vi) of this Schedule 2.5, in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this paragraph (c)(vi) the payment of which would place the indemnified party in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the indemnified party would have been in if the Tax subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund had not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification payments or additional amounts with respect to such Tax had never been paid. This paragraph (c)(vi) of Schedule 2.5 shall not be construed to require any indemnified party to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes that it deems confidential) to the indemnifying party or any other Person.
(vii)As soon as practicable after any payment of Taxes by any Loan Party to a Governmental Authority pursuant to this Schedule 2.5, such Loan Party shall deliver to Lender the original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such Governmental Authority evidencing such payment, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to Lender.
    Schedule 2.5-3
US_ACTIVE\123288794\V-8


(viii)Each party’s obligations under this Schedule 2.5 shall survive any assignment of rights by, or the replacement of, a Lender, the termination of the Commitment and the repayment, satisfaction or discharge of all Obligations under any Loan Document.
(d)Changes In Legal Requirements. If, after the date hereof, the adoption of any Legal Requirement, or any change therein, or any change in the interpretation or administration thereof by any U.S., New York State and/or foreign Governmental Authority, quasi-governmental authority, central bank or comparable agency charged with the interpretation or administration thereof or compliance by any Lender with any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) of any such authority, central bank or comparable agency, including, without limitation, Dodd-Frank, (i) subjects such Lender to any additional charge with respect to the Note or to Taxes (other than Indemnified Taxes, Taxes described in clauses (b) through (d) of the definition of Excluded Taxes and Connection Income Taxes) on its loans, loan principal, letters of credit, commitments or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto, (ii) imposes, modifies or makes applicable any additional reserve, assessment, insurance charge, special deposit, Reserve Requirement or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended by, such Lender, or (iii) imposes any other condition the result of which is to increase the cost or expense (other than Taxes) to any Lender or any applicable Lending Installation of making, funding or maintaining its eurocurrency loans or reduces any amount receivable by any Lender or any applicable Lending Installation in connection with its eurocurrency loans or requires any Lender or any applicable Lending Installation to make any payment calculated by reference to the amount of eurocurrency loans made, or interest received, by it by an amount deemed material by such Lender, and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the costs to such Lender of making, funding or maintaining the Loan, to reduce any amount received or receivable by such Lender thereunder or to reduce the rate of return on such Lender’s capital in respect of the Loan, then, within thirty (30) days after demand by such Lender pursuant to this paragraph (d) of Schedule 2.5, Borrower shall pay to such Lender such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender for such increased cost or reduction; provided, however, that under no circumstance shall Borrower be obligated to gross up such Lender for Connection Income Taxes imposed on such Lender. No Lender shall discriminate against Borrower in making such demand. Such Lender’s determination of the amount of such increased cost or reduction shall be conclusive, absent manifest error.
(e)Changes in Capital Adequacy Regulations. If a Lender reasonably determines the amount of capital required or expected to be maintained by Lender, any Lending Installation of such Lender or any corporation or other entity controlling such Lender is increased as a result of a change in Legal Requirements, including, without limitation, any Risk-Based Capital Guidelines, then, within thirty (30) days after demand by such Lender pursuant to this paragraph (f) of this Schedule 2.5, Borrower shall pay such Lender the amount necessary to compensate for any shortfall in the rate of return on the portion of such increased capital which such Lender determines is attributable to this Agreement, its loans hereunder, or its obligation to make the Loan hereunder (after taking into account such Lender’s policies as to capital adequacy). Notwithstanding the foregoing, for purposes of this Agreement, all requests, rules, guidelines or directives in connection with Dodd-Frank shall be deemed to be a Change regardless of the date enacted, adopted or issued and all requests, rules, guidelines or directives promulgated by the Lender for International Settlements, the Basel Committee on Banking Regulations and Supervisory Practices (or any successor or similar authority) or the U.S. or other financial regulatory authorities shall be deemed to be a Change regardless of the date adopted, issued, promulgated or implemented. “Change” means (i) any change which takes effect after the date of this Agreement in the Risk-Based Capital Guidelines or (ii) any adoption of or change in any other law, governmental or quasi-governmental rule, regulation, policy, guideline, interpretation or directive (whether or not having the force of law) or in the interpretation, promulgation, implementation or administration thereof which takes effect after the date of this Agreement which affects the amount of capital required or expected to be maintained by any Lender or any Lending Installation or any corporation controlling any Lender. Any such change the application of which is phased in over time shall be deemed, as to the application(s) which
    Schedule 2.5-4
US_ACTIVE\123288794\V-8


take effect after the date hereof, a “Change.” “Risk-Based Capital Guidelines” means (i) the risk-based capital guidelines in effect in the U.S. on the date of this Agreement, including, without limitation, transition rules, and (ii) the corresponding capital regulations promulgated by regulatory authorities outside the U.S., including, without limitation, transition rules, and any amendments, modifications and/or replacements of, and/or supplements to, such regulations adopted and which take effect prior to the date of this Agreement.
(f)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Schedule 2.5, if Lender requests compensation under this Schedule 2.5, or requires Borrower to pay any Indemnified Taxes or additional amounts to Lender or any Taxing Authority for the account of Lender pursuant to this Schedule 2.5, or requires Borrower to pay any other sums otherwise due and payable pursuant to this Schedule 2.5, then Borrower shall have the option to prepay the Loan in full in accordance with Section 2.3(d) of the Loan Agreement, without payment of any Prepayment Fee, within ninety (90) days of Lender’s request for such compensation.
(g)Alternate Lending Installation Office, Bank Statements; Survival of Indemnity. To the extent reasonably possible (as determined in the sole discretion of Lender), Lender shall designate another Lending Installation of such Lender with respect to the Loan and shall take other measures in its sole but good faith discretion to reduce any liability of Borrower to such Lender under this Schedule 2.5, so long as such designation or other measure is not disadvantageous in any material respect to such Lender in such Lender’s sole but good faith discretion. Lender shall promptly deliver a statement to Borrower as to the amount due, if any, under this Schedule 2.5. Such statement shall set forth in reasonable detail the calculations upon which Lender determined such amount and shall be final, conclusive and binding on Borrower in the absence of manifest error. Unless otherwise provided herein, the amount specified in the statement shall be payable within thirty (30) days after receipt by Borrower of the statement. The obligations of Borrower under this Schedule 2.5 shall survive payment of the Obligations and termination of this Agreement.
(h)Mitigation.
(i)If Lender requests compensation under paragraph (c) of this Schedule 2.5, or requires Borrower to pay any Indemnified Taxes or additional amounts to Lender or any Taxing Authority for the account of Lender pursuant to paragraph (d) of this Schedule 2.5, then Lender shall (at the request of Borrower) use commercially reasonable efforts to designate a different lending office for funding or booking its Commitment or to assign its rights and obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or affiliates, if, in the reasonable judgment of such Lender, such designation or assignment (A) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable pursuant to paragraph (c) or paragraph (d) of this Schedule 2.5, as the case may be, in the future, and (B) would not subject Lender to any unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise be disadvantageous to Lender. Borrower hereby agrees to pay all actual out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred by Lender in connection with any such designation or assignment.
(ii)If Lender requests compensation under paragraph (c) of this Schedule 2.5, or if Borrower is required to pay any Indemnified Taxes or additional amounts to Lender or any Taxing Authority for the account of Lender pursuant to paragraph (d) of this Schedule 2.5 and, in each case, Lender has declined or is unable to designate a different lending office in accordance with paragraph (h)(i) of this Schedule 2.5, then Borrower may, at its sole expense and effort, upon notice to Lender, require Lender to assign and delegate, without recourse, all of its interests, rights (other than its existing rights to payments pursuant to paragraph (c) or paragraph (d) of this Schedule 2.5) and obligations under this Agreement and the related Loan Documents to another Person that shall assume such obligations; provided that:
(A)    Reserved;
    Schedule 2.5-5
US_ACTIVE\123288794\V-8


(B)    Lender shall have received payment of an amount equal to the outstanding principal of its Commitment, accrued interest thereon, accrued fees and all other amounts payable to it hereunder and under the other Loan Documents from the assignee (to the extent of such outstanding principal and accrued interest and fees) or Borrower (in the case of all other amounts);
(C)    in the case of any such assignment resulting from a claim for compensation under paragraph (d) of this Schedule 2.5 or payments required to be made pursuant to paragraph (c) of this Schedule 2.5, such assignment will result in a reduction in such compensation or payments thereafter; and
(D)    such assignment does not conflict with applicable Legal Requirements.

SCHEDULE 2.6(a)

REPLACEMENT RESERVE
Borrower shall pay to Lender, on each Payment Date, $12,419.95 (each, a “Replacement Reserve Monthly Deposit”), which is the amount reasonably estimated by Lender in its sole discretion to be due for replacements, repairs and capital expenditures required to be made to the Project during the calendar year (collectively, the “Replacements”). Amounts so deposited shall be held in a reserve with Lender (the “Replacement Reserve”). Lender may reassess its estimate of the amount necessary for the Replacement Reserve from time to time, and may increase the Replacement Reserve Monthly Deposit amounts upon thirty (30) days’ notice to Borrower if Lender determines in its reasonable discretion that an increase is necessary to maintain the proper maintenance and operation of the Project. The insufficiency of any balance in the Replacement Reserve shall not relieve Borrower from its obligation to fulfill all preservation and maintenance covenants in the Loan Documents.
The Replacement Reserve will be held by Lender and may be commingled with Lender’s own funds. While no Event of Default exists, the Replacement Reserve shall be advanced by Lender to Borrower for replacements, capital repairs and capital improvements to the Project, as approved by Lender and in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the Capital Expenditures Budget. While an Event of Default exists, Lender shall not be obligated to advance to Borrower any portion of the Replacement Reserve, and while an Event of Default exists, Lender shall be entitled, without notice to Borrower, to apply any funds in the Replacement Reserve to satisfy the Obligations.
So long as no Event of Default exists, Lender shall release to or at the direction of Borrower funds on deposit in the Replacement Reserve on a monthly basis in increments of not less than $25,000.00 to reimburse Borrower for capital expenditures in accordance with the Capital Expenditures B
