amount of its Bridge Commitment Percentage of the Loan described in any 
Borrowing Notice available to the Agent for the account of the Company at the 
Payment Office by 9:00 a.m. (California time) on the borrowing date specified 
therein in funds immediately available to the Agent. Unless any applicable 
condition specified in Article IV has not been satisfied, such funds shall 
then be made available to the Company by the Agent in the aggregate of the 
amounts made available to the Agent by the Banks (in like funds as received 
by the Agent), at the escrow closing the acquisition of the Funded Project to 
which the Loan will be applied, or in the case of any Loan for an Initial 
Funded Project not encumbered by any Liens securing Indebtedness, by 
crediting the account of the Company. With respect to any Initial Funded 
Project encumbered by any Liens securing Indebtedness, the Agent may, in its 
sole discretion, either fund the applicable Loan proceeds into an escrow, if 
applicable, or disburse such Loan proceeds directly to the account of the 
creditor

whose Lien is being concurrently repaid upon satisfactory evidence that on or
before such repayment the Lien will be released or reconveyed.

                    (d)  FREQUENCY OF BORROWINGS. No more than four (4)

Period, upon payment of any loss or expense incurred or sustained by any Bank 
with respect to the early termination of such LIBOR Loan prior to the last 
day of the Interest Period as provided in Section 3.04), such LIBOR Loan into 
a Base Rate Loan; or

                             (C) to continue, on the last day of any Interest 
Period with respect to a LIBOR Loan (or, on any other day of any Interest 
Period, upon payment any loss or expense incurred or sustained by any Bank 
with respect to the early termination of such LIBOR Loan prior to the last 
day of the Interest Period as provided in Section 3.04), such LIBOR Loan (or 
any part thereof in a minimum principal amount of $1,000,000 or an integral 
multiple of $100,000 in excess thereof) for a subsequent Interest Period;

PROVIDED, that unless the Agent shall otherwise agree in writing, the Company
may not elect to have any outstanding LIBOR Loan or Base Rate Loan (or any
portion thereof) continued as or converted into a LIBOR Loan if (a) a Default or
Event of Default shall exist, (b) after giving effect to the such continuation
or conversion there shall be more (i) than five different LIBOR Loans

                         (ii) TIMING OF NOTICE. Each Notice of 
Conversion/Continuation shall be submitted to and received by the Agent prior

                    (b) AUTOMATIC CONVERSIONS. Any outstanding LIBOR Loan 
shall automatically convert to a Base Rate Loan, effective on the last day of 
the applicable Interest Period, if as of such date:

                        (i)   DEFAULT: EVENT OF DEFAULT. A Default or Event of 
Default shall exist;

                        (ii) FAILURE TO PROVIDE NOTICE. The Company shall have 
failed to submit a Notice of Conversion/Continuation for such Loan in compliance
with the terms of Section 2.04(a); or

                        (iii) Failure to Maintain Minimum Loans. If the 
aggregate outstanding principal amount of LIBOR Loans having the same 
Interest Period shall have been reduced, by payment, prepayment, or partial

rata according to the respective outstanding principal amounts of the Loans 
converted or continued.

               2.05 OPTIONAL PREPAYMENTS. Subject to Section 3.04, the 
Company may, at any time and from time to time, ratably prepay Loans in whole 
or in part, in an aggregate minimum amount of $1,000,000 or an integral 
multiple of $100,000 in excess thereof, upon (a) at least three (3) Business 
Days' prior notice, if the Loans to be prepaid are LIBOR Loans, and (b) at 
least one Business Day's prior notice, if the Loans to be prepaid are Base 
Rate Loans. Such notice of prepayment shall specify (i) the amount of such 
prepayment, (ii) the date of such

prepayment, which shall be a Business Day, and (iii) whether such prepayment is
of LIBOR Loans, Base Rate Loans, or any combination thereof. Such notice shall
not thereafter be revocable by the Company and the Agent shall promptly notify
each Bank thereof and of such  Bank's Bridge Commitment Percentage of such
prepayment. If a prepayment notice is given, the payment amount specified
therein shall be due and payable on the date specified therein, together with
accrued interest to such date on the amount prepaid and any amounts required to
be paid pursuant to Section 3.04.

               2.06 MANDATORY PREPAYMENTS OF LOANS. If at any time the 
Outstanding Amount exceeds the then applicable Bridge Availability, the 
Company shall, within three (3) days thereafter, prepay Loans in an amount 
sufficient to reduce the Outstanding Amount to the then applicable Bridge 
Availability.

               2.07 APPLICATION OF PROCEEDS. Unless otherwise instructed by 
the Company, any prepayments pursuant to Section 2.05 or Section 2.06 made 
(i) on a day other than the last day of an Interest Period for any Loan shall 
be applied first to any Base Rate Loans then outstanding and then to any 
LIBOR Loans then outstanding, in the inverse order of such LIBOR Loans' 
stated maturities and (ii) on the last day of an Interest Period for any 
LIBOR Loan shall be applied first to such maturing LIBOR Loan, then to any 
Base Rate Loans outstanding, and then to any other LIBOR Loans then 
outstanding, in the inverse order of such LIBOR Loans' stated maturities.

               2.08 REPAYMENT. Subject to Section 2.06, the Company shall 
repay each Loan on the applicable Individual Bridge Loan Maturity Date.

               2.09 INTEREST.

                    (a) RATES. Subject to Section 2.09(c), each Loan shall 
bear interest on  the outstanding principal amount thereof from the date such 
Loan is made until the date such  Loan becomes due, at a rate per annum equal 
to the LIBO Rate or the Base Rate, as the case may  be, PLUS the Applicable 
Margin.

                    (b) PAYMENT DATES. Interest on each Loan shall be payable 
in arrears  on each Interest Payment Date and the Individual Bridge Loan 
Maturity Date. Interest shall also  be payable on the date of any prepayment 
of Loans pursuant to Section 2.05 or Section 2.06 for  the portion of the 
Loans so prepaid. During the existence of any Event of Default, interest 
shall  be payable on demand.

                    (a) Default Rates. While any Event of Default exists or 
after acceleration and during the continuation thereof, and after as well as 
before any entry of judgment thereon, the Company shall pay interest (after 
as well as before judgment to the extent permitted by law) on all outstanding 
Obligations at a rate per annum which is determined by increasing the 
Applicable Margin then in effect by three percent (3%) per annum; PROVIDED, 
HOWEVER, that, on and after the expiration of the Interest Period applicable 
to any LIBOR Loan outstanding on the date of occurrence of such Event of 
Default or acceleration, the outstanding Obligations shall, during the 
continuation of such Event of Default or after acceleration and 14

during the continuation thereof, bear interest at a fluctuating rate per annum
equal to the Base Rate plus three percent (3%).

                    (d) LIMITATIONS FOR APPLICABLE LAW. Anything herein to the 
contrary notwithstanding, payments of interest shall not be required, for any 
period for which interest is computed hereunder, to the extent (but only to 
the extent) that contracting for or receiving such payments by the respective 
Bank would be contrary to the provisions of any law applicable to such Bank 
limiting the highest rate of interest which may be lawfully contracted for, 
charged or received by such Bank, and in such event the Company shall pay 
such Bank interest at the highest rate permitted by applicable law.

               2.10 FEES. The Company shall pay to the Agent for the account 
of each Bank ratably a fee equal to .25% of the amount of each Loan not 
prepaid or repaid on or prior to the Individual Bridge Loan Maturity Date 
thereof using the proceeds of a Revolving Loan under the Credit Agreement. 
Such fee shall be due and payable on the date of such payment or prepayment 
or, if such Loan has not been paid in full on the Individual Bridge Loan 
Maturity Date therefor, on such Individual Bridge Loan Maturity Date.

               2.11 COMPUTATION OF FEES AND INTEREST.

                    (a) COMPUTATION PERIOD. All computations of fees and 
interest under this Agreement shall be made on the basis of a 360-day year 
and actual days elapsed. Interest and fees shall accrue during each period 
for which interest or fees are computed from the first day thereof to the 
last day thereof.

                    (b) NOTICE. The Agent shall, with reasonable promptness, 
notify the Company and the Banks of each determination of a LIBO Rate, 
PROVIDED that no failure to do so shall relieve the Company of any obligation 
hereunder. Any change in the interest rate on a Loan resulting from a change 
in the Reserve Percentage (as defined in the definition of "LIBO Rate") shall 
become effective as of the opening of business on the day on which such 
change becomes effective. The Agent shall with reasonable promptness notify 
the Company and the Banks of the effective date and the amount of each such 
change, PROVIDED that no failure to do so shall relieve the Company of any 
obligation hereunder. Each determination of an interest rate by the Agent 
pursuant to any provision of this Agreement shall be conclusive and binding 
on the Company and the Banks in the absence of manifest error.

                    (c) DETAIL OF CALCULATION. The Agent shall, at the 
request of the Company or any Bank, deliver to the Company or such Bank, as 
the case may be, a statement showing the quotations used by the Agent in 
determining any interest rate.

               2.12 PAYMENTS BY THE COMPANY.

                    (a) TERMS OF PAYMENTS. All payments (including 
prepayments) to be made by the Company on account of principal, interest, 
fees and other amounts required hereunder shall be made without setoff or 
counterclaim and shall, except as otherwise expressly provided herein, be 
made to the Agent for the ratable account of the Banks at the Payment 15

Office, in dollars and in immediately available funds, no later than 9:00 a.m.
(California time) on the date specified herein. The Agent shall promptly
distribute to each Bank such Bank's Bridge Commitment Percentage (or other
applicable share as expressly provided herein) of such principal, interest, fees
or other amounts (in like funds as received). Any payment which is received by
the Agent later than 9:00 a.m. (California time) shall be deemed to have been
received on the immediately succeeding Business Day, and any applicable interest
or fee shall continue to accrue.

                    (b) BUSINESS DAYS. Whenever any payment hereunder shall 
be stated to be due on a day other than a Business Day, such payment shall be 
made on the next succeeding Business Day, and such extension of time shall be 
included in the computation of interest or fees, as the case may be; subject 
to the provisions set forth in the definition of "Interest Period".

                    (c) RELIANCE OF AGENT ON PAYMENTS BY THE COMPANY. Unless 
the Agent shall have received notice from the Company prior to the date on 
which any payment is due to the Banks hereunder that the Company will not 
make such payment in full, the Agent may assume that the Company has made 
such payment in full to the Agent on such date, and the Agent may (but shall 
not be required to), in reliance upon such assumption, cause to be 
distributed to each Bank on such due date the amount then due such Bank. If 
and to the extent the Company shall not have made such payment in full to the 
Agent, each Bank shall repay to the Agent on demand such amount distributed 
to such Bank, together with interest thereon for each day from the date such 
amount is distributed to such Bank until the date such Bank repays such 
amount to the Agent, at the Federal Funds Rate as in effect for each such day.

               2.13 SECURITY. In connection with the acquisition of a Funded 
Project by or for a Wholly-Owned Subsidiary using Loan proceeds, the Company 
shall deliver to the Agent a Equity Interests Pledge Agreement pledging to 
the Agent for the ratable benefit of the Banks all of the Stock (or other 
equity or beneficial interest if such Person is not a corporation) in such 
Wholly-Owned Subsidiary owned by the Company, the REIT and any other 
Wholly-Owned Subsidiary, substantially in the form of EXHIBIT E hereto, 
together with financing statements or stock certificates, as applicable, and 
such legal opinions or other evidence as the Agent may require to assure or 
confirm that the Agent holds for the benefit of the Banks a duly perfected, 
first-priority Lien on such Stock (or other interests).

               2.14 Loan Funded Project Conditions.

                    (a) PURPOSE OF LOANS. Any Loan funds advanced with 
respect to an Initial Funded Project shall be applied by the Company first to 
repay Indebtedness secured by Liens on the applicable Initial Funded Project, 
and then for general working capital purposes. The proceeds of all Loans 
advanced for Funded Projects other than the Initial Funded Projects shall be 
used by the Company solely as a source of short term bridge financing for 
Funded Projects to be acquired by the Company or any Wholly-Owned Subsidiary. 
The Company shall not use any Loan for any purpose other than as described in 
this Section 2.14(a). Subject to Section 2.03(c) with respect to Loans for 
Initial Funded Projects, each Loan shall be funded 16

directly into the escrow at a title company approved by Agent for the Company's
acquisition of the Funded Project to be acquired with the proceeds of such Loan
and shall be released therefrom only in accordance with instructions approved by
the Agent.

                    (b) LIMITATION ON AMOUNT: ACCEPTANCE BY THE BANKS. No 
Loan shall exceed fifty percent (50%) of the acquisition cost (exclusive of 
prorations and closing costs), as certified to the Banks by the Company in 
the applicable Borrowing Notice or Conversion/Continuation, for the Funded 
Project proposed to be acquired, in part, with the proceeds of such Loan 
(such limitation, the "INDIVIDUAL BRIDGE LOAN LIMITATION"). The Company shall 
deliver to the Agent at least thirty (30) days prior written notice of its 
intention to request a Loan hereunder for acquisition of a proposed Funded 
Project. Prior to the making of any Loan, the Banks shall have the right, in 
their sole discretion, after performing such due diligence as the Banks 
desire in their sole discretion, to approve or disapprove the use of a Loan 
hereunder for part of the acquisition costs for any proposed Funded Project. 
The Banks shall not unreasonably withhold their acceptance of an apartment 
project owned, or to be acquired, in fee simple by the Company or any 
Wholly-Owned Subsidiary offered as a Funded Project hereunder if, through the 
due diligence contemplated hereby, the Banks determine that the project is of 
a quality and character, and is located in a geographical market, which is 
consistent with the then- current or any previous Funded Projects hereunder 
and with the then current or previous Borrowing Base Properties under the 
Credit Agreement or under the Previous Credit Agreement. Prior to the Banks' 
approval of any Loan, the Company shall at its sole expense provide the Banks 
with all requested due diligence materials and information with respect to 
the Funded Project proposed to be acquired, in part, with the proceeds of 
such Loan, which materials and information shall be in a form acceptable to 
the Banks in their sole discretion, and shall be provided at least thirty 
(30) days prior to the date on which Borrower intends to request a Loan for 
acquisition of such proposed Funded Project. Such materials and information 
shall include, without limitation, the following:

                         (i) a preliminary title report and an ALTA survey
meeting the Agent's customary requirements;

                         (ii) an environmental site assessment with respect 
to such Funded Project, dated as of a recent date, prepared by a qualified 
firm acceptable to the Agent, identifying any conditions or operations on 
such property that are not in compliance with any Environmental Laws and any 
Hazardous Materials located thereon, showing Estimated Remediation Costs, if 
any, and stating that there are no conditions on such property or other items 
requiring further investigation or remediation, and any follow-on or 
supplemental report required by the Agent, together with the Agent's standard 
form Environmental Questionnaire and Disclosure Statement completed by the 
Company;

                         (iii) current, certified rent roll and other reports 
of the financial and operating results (for the most recent 12-month period) 
and projections for the property in such format as the Agent may require;

                         (iv) if required by the Agent, evidence of the 
zoning, subdivision and entitlements status of the property, including, 
without limitation, copies of the certificate of occupancy and any other 
material permits, licenses or approvals required for the property;

                         (v) a copy of the purchase and sale agreement(s) by
which the Company or such Wholly-Owned Subsidiary has acquired or is to acquire
the property; and

                         (vi) such other items as the Agent may reasonably
request.

The Company acknowledges that the review of the due diligence materials
described in this Section 2.14(b) will require advance notice to the Agent and
the Banks, and the Company undertakes to provide as much advance notice as
possible to achieve timely review of such materials.

                    (c)  Conditions to Inclusion of Proposed Projects. Each of 
the following conditions must be satisfied (or waived by the Agent in 
writing) prior to the Banks' agreement to advance a Loan in connection with 
the acquisition of any apartment project as a proposed Funded Project:

                         (A) Acceptances. The Banks shall have agreed to 
accept the apartment project offered by the Company for inclusion as a Funded 
Project in the Banks' sole and absolute discretion in accordance with Section 
2.14(b) above, and the Agent shall have so notified the Company in writing. 
Any such acceptance shall be subject to the satisfaction of the other 
conditions set forth in this Section 2.14(c). Each apartment project 
designated in this Agreement as an Initial Funded Project shall be subject to 
the same conditions for acceptance as a Funded Project as other projects 
hereafter offered by the Company for inclusion as a Funded Project.

                         (B) INSURANCE. The Company shall have provided the 
Agent with evidence satisfactory to the Requisite Banks that the Company has 
obtained adequate casualty insurance and liability insurance with respect to 
such Funded Project;

                         (C) OFFICERS' CERTIFICATE. The Company shall have 
delivered to the Agent a certificate of two Responsible Officers 
substantially in the form of EXHIBIT F confirming (i) that all conditions 
precedent set forth in this Section 2.14(c) (other than those based solely 
upon the approval of the Agent, the Banks, or the Requisite Banks) have been 
satisfied with respect to such project; (ii) that all financial and operating 
information delivered to the Agent pursuant to Section 2.14(b), subject to 
audit, is complete and correct to the knowledge of the Company and setting 
forth in detail the calculation which would be required for the calculation 
of the Revolving Facility Debt Service Coverage-Based Principal Limit for 
such project under the Credit Agreement; (iii) that the Company would not be 
required to prepay any Loan with respect to such Funded Project pursuant to 
Section 2.14(d); and (iv) the Company's purchase price for the property, upon 
which the Agent and the Banks shall be entitled to rely; and

                         (D) Equity Interests Pledge Agreement. The Company 
shall have delivered to the Agent a Equity Interests Pledge Agreement 
pursuant to Section 2.13, together with such legal opinions or other evidence 
to confirm the Lien thereof as further 'provided in Section 2.13.

           Under no circumstances shall the Agent or the Banks have or be deemed
to have any Lien on any Funded Project as security for the Obligations.

           (d) MANDATORY PREPAYMENT FOR FUNDED PROJECt. The Company shall be
required to prepay in full all Loans advanced with respect to the acquisition of
a Funded Project:

                    (i) Within ten (10) days after demand from the Agent to 
the  Company following the occurrence of any one of the following events:

                             (A) any Event of Loss with respect to such 
Funded Project; or

                             (B) the occurrence of an adverse change in the 
environmental condition of the Funded Project from that described in the 
materials described in Section 2.14(b)(ii) above;

                    (ii) Immediately upon any Disposition of such Funded 
Project or any portion thereof or interest therein.

               2.15 PAYMENTS BY THE BANKS TO THE AGENT.

                    (a)  RELIANCE OF AGENT ON PAYMENTS BY THE BANK. Unless 
the Agent shall have received notice from a Bank on the Closing Date or, with 
respect to each borrowing after the Closing Date, at least one Business Day 
prior to the date of any proposed borrowing, that such Bank will not make 
available to the Agent for the account of the Company the amount of that 
Bank's Bridge Commitment Percentage of the Loan to be funded on such date, 
the Agent may assume that each Bank has made such amount available to the 
Agent on the borrowing date, and the Agent may (but shall not be required 
to), in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the Company a 
corresponding amount on such date. If and to the extent any Bank shall not 
have made its full amount available to the Agent and the Agent in such 
circumstances has made available to the Company such amount, that Bank shall 
on the next Business Day following the date of such borrowing make such 
amount available to the Agent, together with interest at the Federal Funds 
Rate for and determined as of each day during such period. A certificate of 
the Agent submitted to any Bank with respect to amounts owing under this 
Section 2.15(a) shall be conclusive, absent manifest error. If such amount is 
so made available, such payment to the Agent shall constitute such Bank's 
Loan (as of the date of the borrowing) for all purposes of this Agreement. If 
such amount is not made available to the Agent on the next Business Day 
following the borrowing date, the Agent shall notify the Company of such 
failure to fund and, upon demand by the Agent, the Company shall pay such 
amount to the Agent for the Agent's account, together with interest thereon 
for each day elapsed since the date of such 19

borrowing, at a rate per annum equal to the interest rate applicable at the time
to the Loans comprising such borrowing.

                    (b)  OBLIGATIONS OF AGENT: Bank. The failure of any Bank to
make any Loan on any date of borrowing shall not relieve any other Bank of any
obligation hereunder to make a Loan on the date of such borrowing, but no Bank
shall be responsible for the failure of any other Bank to make the Loan to be
made by such other Bank on the date of any borrowing.

               2.16 SHARING OF PAYMENTS. ETC. If, other than as expressly 
contemplated elsewhere herein, any Bank shall obtain on account of the Loans 
made by it any payment (whether voluntary, involuntary, through exercise of 
any right of setoff, or otherwise) in excess of its Bridge Commitment 
Percentage of payments on account of the Loans obtained by all the Banks, 
such Bank shall forthwith (a) notify the Agent of such fact, and (b) purchase 
from the other Banks such participations in the Loans made by them as shall 
be necessary to cause such purchasing Bank to share the excess payment 
ratably with each of them; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that if all or any portion of 
such excess payment is thereafter recovered from the purchasing Bank, such 
purchase shall to that extent be rescinded and each other Bank shall repay to 
the purchasing Bank the purchase price paid thereto together with a 
percentage (calculated by dividing (i) the amount of such paying Bank's 
required repayment by (ii) the total amount so recovered from the purchasing 
Bank) of any interest or other amount paid or payable by the purchasing Bank 
in respect of the total amount so recovered. The Company agrees that any Bank 
so purchasing a participation from another Bank pursuant to this Section 2.16 
may, to the fullest extent permitted by law, exercise all of such purchasing 
Bank's rights of payment (including the right of setoff, but subject to 
Section 10.08) with respect to such participation as fully as if such 
purchasing Bank were the direct creditor of the Company in the amount of such 
participation. The Agent shall keep records (which shall be conclusive and 
binding in the absence of manifest error) of participations purchased 
pursuant to this Section 2.16 and shall in each case notify the Banks 
following any such purchases.

the Company to the Agent or the Banks under this Agreement shall be made free 
and clear of, and without deduction or withholding for, any and all present 
or future taxes, levies, imposts, deductions, charges or withholdings, and 
all liabilities with respect thereto, excluding such taxes (including income 
taxes or franchise taxes) as are imposed on or measured by the recipient's

                    (c) The Company shall indemnify and hold harmless the 
Agent and each Bank for the full amount of Taxes or Other Taxes (including

                         (ii) the Company shall make such deductions; and

                         (iii) the Company shall pay the full amount deducted

interest and fees under this Agreement free from withholding of United States 
Federal income tax;

                         (ii) if at any time such Bank makes any changes 
necessitating a new form, such Bank shall with reasonable promptness deliver 
to the Company through the Agent in replacement for, or in addition to, the 
forms previously delivered by such Bank hereunder, two (2) accurate and 
complete signed originals of Form 4224, or two (2) accurate and complete 
signed originals of Form 1001, as appropriate, in each case indicating that 
such Bank is on the date of delivery thereof entitled to receive payments of 
principal, interest and fees under this Agreement free from withholding of 
United States Federal income tax;

                         (iii) such Bank shall, before or promptly after the

event mentioned in (ii) above) requiring a change in or renewal of the most 
recent Form 4224 or Form 1001 previously delivered by such Bank, deliver to 
the Company through the Agent two (2) accurate and complete original signed

reasonable request to that effect, deliver to the Company such other forms or 
similar documentation as may be required from time to time by any applicable 
law, treaty, rule or regulation in order to establish such Bank's tax status

                    (g)  The Company shall not be required to pay any 
additional amounts in respect of United States Federal or state income tax 
pursuant to Section 3.01(d) to any Bank or any duly appointed assignee for 
the account of any Lending Office of such Bank or such assignee:

                         (i) if the obligation to pay such additional amounts 
arises as a result of a failure by such Bank or assignee to comply with its 
obligations under Section 3.01(f) in respect of such Lending Office;

                         (ii) if such Bank or assignee shall have delivered 
to the Company a Form 4224 in respect of such Lending Office pursuant to 
Section 3.01(f), and such Bank or assignee shall not at any time be entitled 
to exemption from deduction or withholding of United States Federal income 
tax in respect of payments by the Company hereunder for the account of such 
Lending Once for any reason other than a change in United States law or 
regulations or in the official interpretation of such law or regulations by 
any governmental authority charged with the interpretation or administration 
thereof (whether or not having the force of law) after the date of delivery 
of such Form 4224; or

                         (iii) if such Bank or assignee shall have delivered 
to the Company a Form 1001 in respect of such Lending Once pursuant to 
Section 3.01(f), and such Bank or assignee shall not at any time be entitled 
to reduction, partial exemption or exemption from deduction or withholding of 
United States federal income tax in respect of payments by the Company

regulations or in the official interpretation of such law, treaty or 
regulations by any governmental authority charged with the

interpretation or administration thereof (whether or not having the force of
law) after the date of delivery of such Form 1001.

                    (h) If, at any time, the Company requests any Bank to 
deliver any forms or other documentation pursuant to Section 3.01(f)(iv), 
then the Company shall, on demand of such Bank, through the Agent reimburse 
such Bank for any costs and expenses (including Attorney Costs) reasonably 
incurred by such Bank in the preparation or delivery of such forms or other 
documentation.

                    (i) If the Company is required to pay additional amounts 
to the Agent or any Bank pursuant to Section 3.01(d), then such Bank shall 
use its reasonable best efforts (consistent with legal and regulatory 
restrictions) to change the jurisdiction of its Lending Office so as to 
eliminate any such additional payment by the Company which may thereafter 
accrue if such change in the judgment of such Bank is not otherwise 
disadvantageous to such Bank.

               3.02 Illegality.

                    (a) If any Bank shall determine that the introduction of 
any Requirement of Law or any change therein or in the interpretation or 
administration thereof has made it unlawful, or that any central bank or 
other Governmental Authority has asserted that it is unlawful, for such Bank 
or its Lending Office to make LIBOR Loans, then, on notice thereof by such 
Bank to the Company through the Agent, the obligation of such Bank to make 
LIBOR Loans shall be suspended until such Bank shall have notified the Agent 
and the Company that the circumstances giving rise to such determination no 
longer exist.

                    (b) If any Bank shall reasonably determine that it is 
unlawful to maintain any LIBOR Loan, the Company shall notify Bank that the 
Company shall either (i) prepay in full all LIBOR Loans of such bank then 
outstanding, together with interest accrued thereon, or (ii) elect to convert 
in accordance with Section 2.04 all LIBOR Loans then outstanding, after 
payment to such Bank of all interest accrued thereon, into Base Rate Loans, 
either on the last day of the Interest Period thereof if such Bank may 
lawfully continue to maintain such LIBOR Loans to such day, or immediately if 
such Bank may not lawfully continue to maintain such LIBOR Loans, together 
with any amounts required to be paid in connection therewith pursuant to 
Section 3.04.

                    (c) If the obligation of any Bank to make or maintain 
LIBOR Loans has been terminated, the Company may elect, by giving notice to 
such Bank through the Agent, that all Loans which would otherwise be made by 
such Bank as LIBOR Loans shall instead be made as Base Rate Loans.

               3.03 Increased Costs and Reduction of Return.

                    (a) If any Bank shall determine that, due to either (i) 
the introduction of or any change in or in the interpretation of any 
Requirement of Law or (ii) the compliance with any guideline or request from 
any central bank or other Governmental Authority (whether or not having the 
force of law), there shall be any increase in the cost to such Bank of

shall set forth the basis of such increased cost in reasonable detail, pay to
the Agent for the account of such Bank, such additional amounts as are
sufficient to compensate such Bank for such increased costs.

                    (b) If any Bank shall have reasonably determined that (i)

Capital Adequacy Regulation, (iii) any change in the interpretation or 
administration of any Capital Adequacy Regulation by any central bank or 
other Governmental Authority charged with the interpretation or 
administration thereof, or (iv) compliance with any Capital Adequacy 
Regulation by such Bank (or its Lending Office) or any corporation 
controlling such Bank, effects or would effect an increase in the amount of 
capital required or expected to be maintained by such Bank or any corporation 
controlling such Bank (taking into consideration such Bank's or such 
corporation's policies with respect to capital adequacy and such Bank's 
desired return on capital), then, upon written demand of such Bank (with a 
copy to the Agent), which demand shall set forth in reasonable detail the 
basis for any such increase in required capital, the Company shall 
immediately pay to such Bank, from time to time as specified by such Bank, 
additional amounts sufficient to compensate such Bank for such increase.

                    (c) If any Bank shall have determined that any of the 
events described in Sections 3.03(a) or 3.03(b) affects or would affect an 
increase in cost or reduction of return resulting in an additional

do so shall relieve the Company of any Obligation hereunder.

for, and to hold each Bank harmless from, any loss or expense that such Bank 
may sustain or incur as a consequence of:

                    (a) the failure of the Company to make any required 
payment or prepayment of principal of any LIBOR Loan or Base Rate Loan 
(including payments to be made after any acceleration thereof);

                    (b) the failure of the Company to borrow, continue or 
convert a Loan after the Company has given (or is deemed to have given) a 
Borrowing Notice or a Notice of Conversion/Continuation;

                    (c) the failure of the Company to make any prepayment 
after the Company has given a notice in accordance with Section 2.05;

                    (d) the prepayment of a LIBOR Loan on a day which is not 
the last day of the Interest Period with respect thereto; or

                    (e) the conversion of any LIBOR Loan to a Base Rate Loan 
on a day that is not the last day of the Interest Period with respect thereto;

such amount or amounts to include an amount equal to the excess, if any, of (a)
the amount of interest that would have accrued on the amount not paid, not
borrowed, not prepaid, prepaid, or converted for the period from the date of
such failure to pay, failure to borrow, failure to prepay, prepayment, or
conversion to the last day of then current Interest Period (or in the case of a
failure to borrow, the Interest Period which would have commenced on the date of
such failure) at the interest rate applicable to that LIBOR Loan, over (b) the
amount of interest that would accrue to the Bank on such amount at the LIBO Rate
in effect on such date by placing such amount on deposit for a comparable period
with leading banks in the London interbank market.

               3.05 INABILITY TO DETERMINE RATES. If the Agent shall have 
determined that for any reason adequate and reasonable means do not exist for 
ascertaining the LIBO Rate for any requested Interest Period with respect to 
a proposed LIBOR Loan or that the LIBO Rate applicable pursuant to Section 
2.09(a) for any requested Interest Period with respect to a proposed LIBOR 
Loan does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Banks of funding 
such Loan, the Agent will forthwith give notice of such determination to the 
Company and each Bank. Thereafter, the obligation of the Banks to make or 
maintain LIBOR Loans hereunder shall be suspended until the Agent revokes 
such notice in writing. Upon receipt of such notice, the Company may revoke 
any Borrowing Notice or Notice of Conversion/Continuation then submitted by 
it. If the Company does not revoke such notice, the Banks shall make, convert 
or continue the Loans, as proposed by the Company, in the amount specified in 
the applicable notice submitted by the Company, but such Loans shall be made, 
converted or continued as Base Rate Loans instead of LIBOR Loans.

               3.06 CERTIFICATES OF INKS. Any Bank claiming reimbursement or 
compensation pursuant to this Article III, shall deliver to the Company (with 
a copy to the Agent) a certificate setting forth in reasonable detail a 
summary of the basis of such demand and the amount payable to such Bank 
hereunder.

               3.07 SURVIVAL. The agreements and obligations of the Company 
in this Article III shall survive the payment of all other obligations.

Risks. The Company hereby indemnifies, defends and holds the Agent and the 
Banks and their respective affiliates, assignees, successors, officers, 
directors, employees and agents (collectively, the "Indemnified Parties") 
harmless from and against any and all Indemnified Costs (defined below) 
directly or indirectly arising out of or resulting from construction of any 
improvements on any of the Funded Projects, including any defective 
workmanship or materials; or any failure to satisfy any requirements of any 
laws, regulations, ordinances, governmental policies or standards, reports, 
subdivision maps or development agreements that apply or pertain to any of 
the Funded Projects; or breach of any representation or warranty made or 
given by the Company to any of the Indemnified Parties or to any prospective 
or actual buyer of all or any portion of any of the Funded Projects; or any

Agreement are also intended beneficiaries of this Section, as well as the Agent
and the Banks.

               6.13 INDEMNITY REGARDING HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES.

                    (a) INDEMNITY. The Company hereby indemnifies, defends

Indemnified Costs directly or indirectly arising out of or resulting from any 
Hazardous Substance being present or released in, on or around any part of 
any Funded Project, or in the soil, groundwater or soil vapor on or under any 
Funded Project, including:

                    (i) Any claim for such Indemnified Costs asserted by any 
federal, state or local governmental agency, including the United States

Services, and including any claim that any Indemnified Party is liable for 
any such Indemnified Costs as an "owner" or "operator" of any Funded Project 
under any law relating to Hazardous Substances; and

                    (ii) Any such Indemnified Costs claimed against any 
Indemnified Party by any person other than a governmental agency, including 
any person who may purchase or lease all or any portion of any Funded Project 
from the Company or its Subsidiaries, from any Indemnified Party, or from any 
other purchaser or lessee; any person who may at any time have any interest 
in all or any portion of the any Funded Project; any person who may at any 
time be responsible for any clean-up costs or other Indemnified Costs 
relating to any Funded Project; and any person claiming to have been injured 
in any way as a result of exposure to any Hazardous Substance; and

                    (iii) Any such Indemnified Costs which any Indemnified 
Party reasonably believes at any time must be incurred to comply with any 
law, judgment, order, regulation or regulatory directive relating to 
Hazardous Substances, or which any Indemnified Party reasonably believes at 
any time must be incurred to protect the public health or safety; and

                    (iv) Any such Indemnified Costs resulting from currently 
existing conditions in, on or around any Funded Project, whether known or 
unknown by the Company, its Subsidiaries or the Indemnified Parties at the 
time each Funded Project is acquired, and any such Indemnified Costs 
resulting from the activities of the Company, it Subsidiaries or the tenants 
of either of them, or any other person in, on or around any Funded Project.

               (b) NO INDEMNITY FOR GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR WILLFUL MISCONDUCT. 
Notwithstanding anything contained in this Agreement which may be construed 
to the contrary,

the Company and its Subsidiaries shall have no obligation to indemnify any
Indemnified Party for any Indemnified Costs arising out of the gross negligence
or willful misconduct of an Indemnified Party.

                    (c) DEFENSE OF INDEMNIFIED PARTIES. Upon demand by any 
Indemnified Party, the Company and its Subsidiaries shall defend any 
investigation, action or proceeding involving any Indemnified Costs which is 
brought or commenced against any Indemnified Party, whether alone or together 
with the Company or any other person, all at the Company's own, cost and by 
counsel to be approved by the Indemnified Party in the exercise of its 
reasonable judgment. In the alternative, any Indemnified Party may elect to 
conduct its own defense at the expense of the Company and its Subsidiaries.

                    (d) COMPLIANCE REGARDING HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES. The 
Company shall, and shall cause its Subsidiaries to, comply and cause all 
tenants and any other persons who may come upon any Funded Project to comply, 
with all laws, regulations and ordinances governing or applicable to 
Hazardous Substances, including those requiring disclosures to prospective 
and actual buyers of all or any portion of any Funded Project. The Company 
also shall, and shall also cause its Subsidiaries to, comply with the 
recommendations of any qualified environmental engineer or other expert which 
apply or pertain to any Funded Project.

                    (e) NOTICES REGARDING HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES. The Company 
shall, and shall cause its Subsidiaries to, promptly notify the Agent if it 
knows, suspects or believes there may be any Hazardous Substance in or around 
any Funded Project, or in the soil, groundwater or soil vapor on or under 
such Funded Project, or that the Company, any of its Subsidiaries or any 
Funded Project may be subject to any threatened or pending investigation by 
any governmental agency under any law, regulation or ordinance pertaining to 
any Hazardous Substance.

                    (f) SITE VISITS, OBSERVATIONS AND TESTING. The 
Indemnified Parties and their agents and representatives shall have the right 
at any reasonable time to enter and visit any Funded Project for the purposes 
of observing the Funded Project, taking and removing soil or groundwater 
samples, and conducting tests on any part of the Funded Project. The 
Indemnified Parties have no duty, however, to visit or observe the any Funded 
Project or to conduct tests, and no site visit, observation or testing by any 
Indemnified Party shall impose any liability on any Indemnified Party. In no 
event shall any site visit, observation or testing by any Indemnified Party 
be a representation that Hazardous Substances are or are not present in, on 
or under any Funded Project, or that there has been or shall be compliance 
with any law, regulation or ordinance pertaining to Hazardous Substances or 
any other applicable governmental law. Neither the Company, its Subsidiaries 
nor any other party is entitled to rely on any site visit, observation or 
testing by any Indemnified Party. The Indemnified Parties owe no duty of care 
to protect the Company or any other party against, or to inform the Company, 
its Subsidiaries or any other party of, any Hazardous Substances or any other 
adverse condition affecting any Funded Project. Any Indemnified Party shall 
give the Company reasonable notice before entering any Funded Project. The 
Indemnified Party shall make reasonable efforts to avoid interfering with the 
Company's or any tenant's use of any Funded Project in exercising any

rights provided for in this Section. Each Indemnified Party will use reasonable
business practices in conducting its site visits, observations and testing.

Disposition of any Funded Project by paying to the Agent for distribution to 
the Banks an amount equal to the greater of the Loan applicable to such 
Funded Project or the amount which would be required to be paid to the Banks 
so that the Outstanding Amount of the Bridge Loan immediately after such

knowledge or notice of the occurrence of any Default or Event of Default, 
except with respect to defaults in the payment of principal, interest and 
fees required to be paid to the Agent for the account of the Banks, unless 
the Agent shall have received written notice from a Bank or the Company 
referring to this Agreement, describing such Default or Event of Default and 
stating that such notice is a "notice of default." In the event that the 
Agent receives such a notice, the Agent shall give notice thereof to the 
Banks. The Agent shall take such action with respect to such Default or Event 
of Default as shall be requested by the Requisite Banks in accordance with 
Article VIII; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that unless and until the Agent shall have 
received any such request, it may (but shall not be obligated to) take such 
action, or refrain from taking such action, with respect to such Default or 
Event of Default as it shall deem advisable or in the best interest of the 
Banks.

               9.06 CREDIT DECISION. Each Bank expressly acknowledges that 
none of the Agent-Related Persons has made any representation or warranty to 
such Bank and that no act by the Agent hereinafter taken, including any 
review of the affairs of the Company, the REIT, any Management Entity or 
Subsidiary, shall be deemed to constitute any representation or warranty by 
the Agent to any Bank. Each Bank represents to the Agent that such Bank has, 
independently and without reliance upon the Agent and based on such documents 
and information as such Bank has deemed appropriate, made its own appraisal 
of and investigation into the business, prospects, operations, Properties, 
financial and other condition and creditworthiness of the Company, the REIT, 
any Management Entity or Subsidiary, and all applicable bank regulatory laws 
relating to the transactions contemplated thereby, and made its own decision 
to enter into this Agreement and extend credit to the Company hereunder. Each 
Bank also represents that it will, independently and without reliance upon 
the Agent and based on such documents and information as it shall deem 
appropriate at the time, continue to make its own credit analysis, appraisals 
and decisions in taking or not taking action under this Agreement and the 
other Loan Documents, and to make such investigations as it deems necessary 
to inform itself as to the business, prospects, operations, Properties, 
financial and other condition and creditworthiness of the Company, the REIT, 
the Management Entities and the Subsidiaries. Except for notices, reports and 
other documents expressly herein required to be furnished to the Banks by the 
Agent, Agent shall have no duty or responsibility to provide any Bank with 
any credit or other information concerning the business, prospects, 
operations, Properties, financial and other condition or creditworthiness of 
the Company, the REIT, the Management Entities and the Subsidiaries which may 
come into the possession of any of the Agent-Related Persons.

               9.07 INDEMNIFICATION. The Banks shall indemnify upon demand 
the Agent-Related Persons (to the extent not reimbursed by or on behalf of 
the Company and without limiting the obligation of the Company to do so) 
ratably from and against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, 
damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses and 
disbursements of any kind whatsoever which may at any time (including at any 
time following the repayment of the Loans) be imposed on, incurred by or 
asserted against any such Person in

any way relating to or arising out of this Agreement or any document
contemplated by or referred to herein or therein or the transactions
contemplated hereby or thereby or any action taken or omitted by any such Person
under or in connection with any of the foregoing; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that no
Bank shall be liable for the payment to the Agent-Related Persons of any portion
of such liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions,
judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements resulting solely from such
Person's gross negligence or willful misconduct. Without limitation of the
foregoing, each Bank shall reimburse the Agent upon demand (to the extent the
Agent is not reimbursed upon demand by the Company, unless the Agent is legally
restricted from making such demand upon the Company, in which case demand need
not be made upon the Company) for its ratable share of any costs or
out-of-pocket expenses (including Attorney Costs) incurred by the Agent in
connection with the preparation, execution, delivery, administration,
modification, amendment or enforcement (whether through negotiations, legal
proceedings or otherwise) of, or legal advice in respect of rights or
responsibilities under, this Agreement, any other Loan Document, or any document
contemplated by or referred to herein to the extent that the Agent is not
reimbursed for such expenses by or on behalf of the Company. Without limiting
the generality of the foregoing, if the IRS or any authority of the United
States or other jurisdiction asserts a claim that the Agent did not properly
withhold tax from amounts paid to or for the account of any Bank (because the
appropriate form was not delivered or was not properly executed, or because such
Bank failed to notify the Agent of a change in circumstances which rendered the
exemption from, or reduction of, withholding tax ineffective, or for any other
reason), such Bank shall indemnify the Agent fully for all amounts paid,
directly or indirectly, by the Agent as tax or otherwise, including penalties
and interest, and including any taxes imposed by any jurisdiction on the amounts
payable to the Agent under this Section 9.07, together with all costs, expenses
and attorneys' fees (including allocated costs for in-house legal services). The
obligation of the Banks in this Section shall survive the payment of all
Obligations.

               9.08 AGENT IN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY. BofA (and any other Bank 
that may hereafter serve as Agent) and each of their respective Affiliates 
may make loans to, issue letters of credit for the account of, accept 
deposits from, acquire equity interests in and generally engage in any kind 
of banking, trust, financial advisory or other business with, the Company, 
the REIT, the Management Entities and the Subsidiaries and Affiliates as 
though BofA (or any other such Bank) were not the agent hereunder and without 
notice to the Banks. With respect to its Loans, BofA (and any other Bank that 
may hereafter serve as Agent), shall have the same rights and powers under 
this Agreement as any other Bank and may exercise the same as though each of 
them were not an agent, and the terms "Bank" and "Banks" shall include BofA 
(and any other Bank that may hereafter serve as Agent), in its individual 
capacity.

               9.09 SUCCESSOR AGENTS. The Agent may resign as Agent upon 30 
days' notice to the Banks. If an Agent shall resign under this Agreement, the 
Requisite Banks shall appoint from among the Banks a successor Agent for the 
Banks, which successor Agent shall, if no Default or Event of Default exists 
hereunder, be subject to the approval of the Company. If no successor Agent 
is appointed prior to the effective date of the resignation of the retiring 
Agent, the retiring Agent shall appoint, after consulting with the Banks and 
the Company, a successor Agent. Upon the acceptance of its appointment as 
successor Agent hereunder, such successor

Agent shall succeed to all the rights, powers and duties of the retiring Agent,
and the term "Agent" shall mean such successor Agent, and the retiring Agent's
rights, powers and duties as Agent shall be terminated. After any retiring
Agent's resignation hereunder as Agent, the provisions of this Article IX and
Sections 10.04 and 10.05 shall inure to its benefit as to any actions taken or
omitted to be taken by it while it was an Agent under this Agreement.

               9.10 COLLATERAL MATTERS.

                    (a) PERFECTION. The Agent is authorized on behalf of all 
the Banks, without the necessity of any notice to or further consent from the 
Banks, from time to time to take any action with respect to any Collateral or 
the Equity Interests Pledge Documents which may be necessary to perfect and 
maintain perfected the security interest in and Liens upon the Collateral 
granted pursuant to the Equity Interests Pledge Documents.

                    (b) NO OTHER COLLATERAL. Each Bank agrees with and in 
favor of each other (which agreement shall not be for the benefit of the 
Company, the REIT, the Management Entities or any Subsidiaries) that the 
Company's obligation to such Bank under this Agreement and the other Loan 
Documents is not and shall not be secured by any real property collateral now 
or hereafter acquired by such Bank other than the Collateral hereunder.

any agreement of the Agent and the Banks under Article II to receive certain 
notices by telephone and facsimile is solely for the convenience and at the

Banks to receive written confirmation of any telephonic or facsimile notice 
or the receipt by the Agent and the Banks of a confirmation which is at 
variance with the terms understood by the Agent and the Banks to be contained 
in the telephonic or facsimile notice.

and no delay in exercising, on the part of any Agent or Bank, any right, 
remedy, power or privilege hereunder, shall operate as a waiver thereof; nor

hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of 
any other right, remedy, power or privilege.

               10.04 COSTS AND EXPENSES. The Company shall, whether or not 
the transactions contemplated hereby shall be consummated:

                    (a) FACILITY EXPENSES. Pay or reimburse the Agent on

including, without limitation, title insurance company charges, survey costs,

or the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby, and with respect to any
investigation, litigation or proceeding related to this Agreement or the Loans
or the use of the proceeds thereof, whether or not any Indemnified Person is a
party thereto (all the foregoing, collectively, the "Indemnified Liabilities");
PROVIDED, that the Company shall have no obligation hereunder to any
Indemnified Person with respect to Indemnified Liabilities arising from the
gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Indemnified Person. The
agreements in this Section 10.05 shall survive payment of all other Obligations.

exercises its rights of setoff, and such payment or payments or the proceeds 
of such enforcement or setoff or any part thereof are subsequently 
invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential, set aside or required 
to be repaid to a trustee, receiver or any other party in connection with any 
Insolvency Proceeding, or otherwise, then to the extent of such recovery the 
obligation or part thereof originally intended to be satisfied shall be 
revived and continued in full force and effect as if such payment had not

shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and 
their respective successors and assigns, except that the Company may not 
assign or transfer any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement 
without the prior written consent of the Agent and each Bank, which may be 
withheld in their sole and absolute discretion.

               10.08 ASSIGNMENTS, PARTICIPATIONS, ETC.

                    (a) ASSIGNMENTS. Subject to the further provisions of 
this Section 10.08(a), any Bank may, with the written consent of the Agent, 
which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, at any time assign and 
delegate to one or more Eligible Assignees (provided that no written consent 
of the Agent shall be required in connection with any assignment and 
delegation by a Bank to a Bank Affiliate of such Bank) (each an "Assignee") 
all, or any ratable part of all, of the Loans, the Bridge Commitments and the 
other rights and obligations of such Bank hereunder, in a minimum amount of 
$5,000,000 and in additional increments of $250,000 so long as such Bank 
concurrently transfers to such Assignee the same proportionate share of its 
interests and obligations with respect to its Revolving Commitment under (and 
as such term is defined in) the Credit Agreement) PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that the 
Company and the Agent may continue to deal solely and directly with such Bank 
in connection with the interest so assigned to an Assignee until (a) written 
notice of such assignment, together with payment instructions, addresses and 
related information with respect to the Assignee, shall

have been given to the Company and the Agent by such Bank and the Assignee; (b)
such Bank and its Assignee shall have delivered to the Company and the Agent an
Assignment and Acceptance in the form of EXHIBIT H ("Assignment and
Acceptance") together with any Note or Notes subject to such assignment; (c)
such Bank shall have paid to the Agent, for its own account, an assignment fee
in the amount of $1500, if the Assignee is a Bank (without giving effect to the
Assignment), and $3000 in all other cases; and (d) such Bank shall have
delivered to the Agent such documents as may be required by Section 3.01(f). Any
such assignment requiring the approval of the Agent shall also require the
approval of the Company (such approval not to be unreasonably withheld or
delayed), provided that the Company's failure to approve or disapprove such
assignment within five days' after receiving written notice thereof shall be
deemed approval by the Company of such assignment, and provided further, that no
such approval from the Company shall be required during the continuation of a
Default or Event of Default.

                    (b) RIGHTS ASSIGNEE. From and after the date that the 
Agent notifies the assignor Bank that the Agent has received an executed 
Assignment and Acceptance and payment of the assignment fee specified in 
Section 10.08(a), (i) the Assignee thereunder shall, subject to Section 
10.08(a), be a party hereto and, to the extent that rights and obligations 
hereunder have been assigned to it pursuant to such Assignment and 
Acceptance, shall have the rights and obligations of a Bank under the Loan 
Documents, and (ii) the assignor Bank shall, to the extent that rights and 
obligations hereunder have been assigned by it pursuant to such Assignment 
and Acceptance, relinquish its rights and be released from its obligations 
under the Loan Documents.

                    (c) REPLACEMENT NOTES. Within thirty (30) Business Days 
after its receipt of notice by the Agent that the Agent has received an 
executed Assignment and Acceptance and payment of the processing fee, the 
Company shall execute and deliver to the Agent, new Notes evidencing such 
Assignee's assigned Loans and Bridge Commitment and, if the assignor Bank has 
retained a portion of its Loans and its Bridge Commitment, replacement Notes 
in the principal amount of the Loans retained by the assignor Bank (such 
Notes to be in exchange for, but not in payment of, the Notes held by such 
Bank). Immediately upon each Assignee's making its payment under the 
Assignment and Acceptance, this Agreement shall be deemed to be amended to 
the extent, but only to the extent, necessary to reflect the addition of the 
Assignee and the resulting adjustment of the Bridge Commitments arising 
therefrom. The Bridge Commitment allocated to each Assignee shall reduce such 
Bridge Commitment of the assigning Bank PRO TANTO.

                    (d) PARTICIPATIONS. Any Bank may at any time sell to one 
or more commercial banks (a "Participant") participating interests in any 
Loans and Bridge Commitment of that Bank and the other interests of that Bank 
(the "originating Bank") hereunder and under the other Loan Documents so long 
as such Bank concurrently transfers to such Participant the same 
proportionate share of its interests and obligations with respect to its 
Revolving Commitment under (and as such term is defined in) the Credit 
Agreement; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that (i) the originating Bank's obligations 
under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, (ii) the originating Bank shall 
remain solely responsible for the performance of such obligations, (iii) the

Company and the Agent shall continue to deal solely and directly with the
originating Bank in connection with the originating Bank's rights and
obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, (iv) no Bank
shall transfer or grant any participating interest under which the Participant
shall have rights to approve any amendment to, or any consent or waiver with
respect to, this Agreement or any other Loan Document, except to the extent such
amendment, consent or waiver would require unanimous consent as described in the
FIRST PROVISO to Section 10.01; and (v) the Company shall have approved the
transfer or grant of any participating interest in any Loans and Bridge
Commitment of the originating Bank to a Participant that has not theretofore
previously held a participating interest therein (such approval not to be
unreasonably withheld or delayed), provided that the Company's failure to
approve or disapprove in writing such Participant within five days' after
receiving written notice thereof shall be deemed approval by the Company of such
transfer or grant to such Participant, and provided further, that no such
approval from the Company shall be required during the continuation of a Default
or Event of Default. In the case of any such participation, the Participant
shall not have any rights under this Agreement, or any of the other Loan
Documents, and all amounts payable by the Company hereunder shall be determined
as if such Bank had not sold such participation; except that, if amounts
outstanding under this Agreement are due and unpaid, or shall have been declared
or shall have become due and payable upon the occurrence of an Event of Default,
each Participant shall be deemed to have the right of setoff in respect of its
participating interest in amounts owing under this Agreement to the same extent
as if the amount of its participating interest were owing directly to it as a
Bank under this Agreement.

                    (e) ASSIGNMENTS TO FEDERAL RESERVE BANK. Notwithstanding 
any other provision contained in this Agreement or any other Loan Document to 
the contrary, any Bank may assign all or any portion of the Loans or Notes 
held by it to any Federal Reserve Bank or the United States Treasury as 
collateral security pursuant to Regulation A of the Board of Governors of the 
Federal Reserve System and any Operating Circular issued by such Federal 
Reserve Bank, provided that any payment in respect of such assigned Loans or 
Notes made by the Company to or for the account of the assigning and/or 
pledging Bank in accordance with the terms of this Agreement shall satisfy 
the Company's obligations hereunder in respect of such assigned Loans or 
Notes to the extent of such payment. No such assignment shall release the 
assigning Bank from its obligations hereunder.

               10.09 SETOFF

               In addition to any rights and remedies of the Banks provided 
by law, if an Event of Default exists, each Bank is authorized at any time 
and from time to time, without prior notice to the Company, any such notice 
being waived by the Company to the fullest extent permitted by law, to set 
off and apply any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, 
provisional or final) at any time held by, and other indebtedness at any time 
owing to, such Bank to or for the credit or the account of the Company 
against any and all obligations owing to such Bank, now or hereafter 
existing, irrespective of whether the Agent or such Bank shall have made 
demand under this Agreement or any Loan Document and whether such obligations 
may be contingent or unmatured. Each Bank agrees to promptly notify the 
Company and the Agent after any such setoff and application made by such 
Bank; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that the failure to give such notice

shall not affect the validity of such setoff and application. The rights of each
Bank under this Section 10.09 are in addition to the other rights and remedies
(including other rights of setoff) that such Bank may have. NOTWITHSTANDING THE
FOREGOING, NO BANK SHALL EXERCISE, OR ATTEMPT TO EXERCISE, ANY RIGHT OF SETOFF,
BANKER'S LIEN, OR THE LIKE, AGAINST ANY DEPOSIT ACCOUNT OR PROPERTY OF THE
COMPANY, THE REIT, ANY MANAGEMENT ENTITY OR ANY SUBSIDIARY HELD OR MAINTAINED BY
ANY BANK, WITHOUT THE PRIOR WRITTEN CONSENT OF THE REQUISITE BANKS.

Bank shall notify the Agent in writing of any changes in the address to which 
notices to such Bank should be directed, of addresses of its Offshore Lending 
Office, of payment instructions in respect of all payments to be made to it 
hereunder and of such other administrative information as the Agent shall 
reasonably request.

               10.11 COUNTERPARTS. This Agreement may be executed by one or 
more of the parties to this Agreement in any number of separate counterparts, 
each of which, when so executed, shall be deemed an original, and all of said 
counterparts taken together shall be deemed to constitute but one and the 
same instrument. A set of the copies of this Agreement signed by all the 
parties shall be lodged with the Company and the Agent.

               10.12 SEVERABILITY,. The illegality or unenforceability of any 
provision of this Agreement or any instrument or agreement required hereunder 
shall not in any way affect or impair the legality or enforceability of the 
remaining provisions of this Agreement or any instrument or agreement 
required hereunder.

               10.13 NO THIRD PARTIES BENEFITED. This Agreement is made and 
entered into for the sole protection and legal benefit of the Company, the 
Agent and the Banks, and their permitted successors and assigns, and no other 
Person shall be a direct or indirect legal beneficiary of, or have any direct 
or indirect cause of action or claim in connection with, this Agreement or 
any of the other Loan Documents. No Agent or Bank shall have any obligation 
to any Person not a party to this Agreement or the other Loan Documents.

               10.14 TIME. Time is of the essence of each term and provision 
of this Agreement and each of the other Loan Documents.

               10.16 WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. THE COMPANY, THE AGENT, AND THE 
BANKS EACH WAIVE THEIR RESPECTIVE RIGHTS TO A TRIAL BY JURY OF ANY CLAIM OR 
CAUSE OF ACTION BASED UPON OR ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, 
THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY OR THEREBY,

LITIGATION OF ANY TYPE BROUGHT BY ANY OF THE PARTIES AGAINST ANY OTHER PARTY OR
PARTIES, WHETHER WITH RESPECT TO CONTRACT CLAIMS, TORT CLAIMS, OR OTHERWISE.
SUBJECT TO SECTION 10.17 BELOW, THE COMPANY, THE AGENT, AND THE BANKS EACH AGREE
THAT ANY SUCH CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION SHALL BE TRIED BY A COURT TRIAL WITHOUT A
JURY. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, THE PARTIES FURTHER AGREE THAT THEIR
RESPECTIVE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY IS WAIVED BY OPERATION OF THIS SECTION AS TO
ANY ACTION, COUNTERCLAIM OR OTHER PROCEEDING WHICH SEEKS, IN WHOLE OR IN PART,
TO CHALLENGE THE VALIDITY OR ENFORCEABILITY OF THIS AGREEMENT OR THE OTHER LOAN
DOCUMENTS OR ANY PROVISION HEREOF OR THEREOF. THIS WAIVER SHALL APPLY TO ANY
SUBSEQUENT AMENDMENTS, RENEWALS, SUPPLEMENTS OR MODIFICATIONS TO THIS AGREEMENT
AND THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS.

               10.17 Arbitration.

                    (a) MANDATORY ARBITRATION. Any controversy or claim 
between or among the parties arising out of or relating to this Agreement, 
the Loan Documents, and any claim based on or arising from an alleged tort, 
shall at the request of any party be determined by arbitration. The 
arbitration shall be conducted in Los Angeles, California, in accordance with 
the United States Arbitration Act (Title 9, U.S. Code), notwithstanding any 
choice of law provision in this Agreement, and under the Commercial Rules of 
the American Arbitration Association (the "AAA"). The arbitrator(s) shall 
give effect to statutes of limitation in determining any claim. Any 
controversy concerning whether an issue is arbitrable shall be determined by 
the arbitrator(s). Judgment upon the arbitration award may be entered in any 
court having jurisdiction. The institution and maintenance of an action for 
judicial relief or pursuit of a provisional or ancillary remedy shall not 
constitute a waiver of the right of any party, including the plaintiff, to 
submit the controversy or claim to arbitration if any other party contests 
such action for judicial relief.

                    (b) PROVISIONAL REMEDIES. SELF-HELP AND FORECLOSURE. No 
provision of this Section 10.17 shall limit the right of any party to this 
Agreement to exercise self-help remedies such as setoff, foreclosure against 
or sale of any real or personal property collateral or security, or to obtain 
provisional or ancillary remedies from a court of competent jurisdiction 
before, after, or during the pendency of any arbitration or other proceeding. 
The exercise of a remedy does not waive the right of either party to resort 
to arbitration.

               10.18 NOTICE CLAIMS BAR. THE COMPANY HEREBY AGREES THAT IT 
SHALL GIVE PROMPT WRITTEN NOTICE TO THE AGENT OF ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION 
IT BELIEVES IT HAS, OR MAY SEEK TO ASSERT OR ALLEGE AGAINST THE AGENT OR ANY 
BANK, WHETHER SUCH CLAIM IS BASED IN LAW OR EQUITY, ARISING UNDER OR RELATED 
TO THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OF THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS, OR TO THE LOANS (OR THE 
COLLATERAL THEREFOR), OR ANY ACT OR OMISSION TO ACT BY THE AGENT OR ANY BANK 
WITH RESPECT HERETO OR THERETO, AND THAT IF THE COMPANY SHALL FAIL

TO GIVE SUCH PROMPT NOTICE TO THE AGENT WITH REGARD TO ANY SUCH CLAIM OR CAUSE
OF ACTION, THE COMPANY SHALL BE DEEMED TO HAVE WAIVED, AND SHALL BE FOREVER
BARRED FROM BRINGING OR ASSERTING, SUCH CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION IN ANY
ARBITRATION OR ANY SUIT, ACTION OR PROCEEDING IN ANY COURT OR BEFORE ANY
GOVERNMENTAL AGENCY.

               10.19 ENTIRE AGREEMENT. This Agreement, together with the 
other Loan Documents, embodies the entire Agreement and understanding between 
the Company, the Agent and the Banks. Accordingly, this Agreement, together 
with the other Loan Documents, supersedes all prior or contemporaneous 
agreements and understandings of such Persons, verbal or written, relating to 
the subject matter hereof and thereof, except for any prior arrangements made 
with respect to the payment by the Company of (or any indemnification for) 
any fees, costs or expenses payable to or incurred (or to be incurred) by or 
on behalf of the Agent or the Banks.

               10.20 INTERPRETATION. This Agreement together with the other 
Loan Documents is the result of negotiations between and has been reviewed by 
counsel to the Agent, the Banks and the Company and other parties, and is the 
product of all parties hereto. Accordingly, this Agreement and the other Loan 
Documents shall not be construed against the Banks or the Agent merely 
because of the Agent's or Bank's involvement in the preparation of such 
documents and agreements.

               10.21 EXCULPATION OF BANKS. No Bank undertakes or assumes any 
responsibility or duty to the Company or any third party to select, review, 
inspect, examine, supervise, pass judgment upon or inform the Company or any 
third party of the existence, quality, adequacy or suitability of: (a) any 
appraisals of any Funded Project, (b) any environmental report related to a 
Funded Project, or (c) any other matters or items, including, but not limited 
to, engineering, soils and seismic reports which are related to a Funded 
Project. Any such selection, review, inspection, examination and the like is 
solely for the purpose of protecting the Banks' interests and preserving the 
Banks' rights under the Loan Documents, and shall not render any Bank liable 
to the Company or any third party for the existence, sufficiency, accuracy, 
completeness or legality thereof. No Bank owes any duty of care to protect or 
inform the Company or any third party against negligent, faulty, inadequate 
or defective building or construction or the existence of any environmentally 
hazardous condition affecting any Funded Project.

               10.22 RELATIONSHIP. Nothing herein contained shall in any 
manner be construed as creating any relationship between the Agent and the 
Banks, on the one hand, and the Company, on the other hand, other than as 
creditor and debtor. The Company agrees to indemnify, protect, defend and 
hold the Agent and each Bank harmless from and against any and all losses, 
liabilities, damages, and costs and expenses (including, but not limited to, 
reasonable attorneys' fees and disbursements, including reasonably allocated 
costs of in-house counsel) resulting from any other construction of the 
parties' relationship.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have caused this Agreement to be duly
executed and delivered as of the day and year first written above.
