GABLES REALTY LIMITED PARTNERSHIP, a Delaware limited partnership (herein
referred to as the "Partnership", which term includes any successor entity under
the Indenture referred to on the reverse hereof), for value received, hereby
promises to pay to Cede & Co. or registered assigns the principal sum of
$50,000,000 Dollars on October 1, 2000 (the "Stated Maturity Date") or earlier
at the option of the Partnership (the "Redemption Date", and together with the
Stated Maturity Date with respect to principal repayable on such date, the
"Maturity Date") and to pay interest thereon from October 1, 1998 or from the
most recent Interest Payment Date to which interest has been paid or duly
provided for, semi-annually on April 1 and October 1 in each year (each, an
"Interest Payment Date"), commencing April 1, 1999, at the rate of 6.55% per
annum, until the principal hereof is paid or duly provided for. The interest so
payable, and punctually paid or duly provided for, on any Interest Payment Date
will, as provided in such Indenture, be paid to the Holder in whose name this
Security (or one or more Predecessor Securities) is registered at the close of
business on the Regular Record Date for such interest, which shall be March 15
or September 15 (whether or not a Business Day), as the case may be, next
preceding such Interest Payment Date at the office or agency of the Partnership
maintained for such purpose; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that such interest
may be paid, at the Partnership's option, by mailing a check to such Holder at
its registered address or by wire transfer of funds to an account maintained by
such Holder within the United States. Any such interest not so punctually paid
or duly provided for shall forthwith cease to be payable to the Holder on such
Regular Record Date, and may be paid to the Holder in whose name this Security
(or one or more Predecessor Securities) is registered at the close of business
on a Special Record Date for the payment of such Defaulted Interest to be fixed
by the Trustee, notice whereof shall be given to Holders of Securities of this
series not less than 10 days prior to such Special Record Date, or may be paid
at any time in any other lawful manner not inconsistent with the requirements of
any securities exchange on which the Securities of this series may be listed,
and upon such notice as may be required by such exchange, all as more fully
provided in the Indenture. Interest will be computed on the basis of a 360-day
year of twelve 30-day months.
The principal of this Security payable on the Stated Maturity Date or the
principal of, Make-Whole Amount, if any, and, if the Redemption Date is not an
Interest Payment Date, interest on this Security payable on the Redemption Date
will be paid against presentation of this Security at the office or agency of
the Partnership maintained for that purpose in the City of Atlanta, Georgia
(which initially shall be an office or agency of the Trustee), in such coin or
currency of the United States of America as at the time of payment is legal
tender for the payment of public and private debts.
Interest payable on this Security on any Interest Payment Date and on the Stated
Maturity Date or Redemption Date, as the case may be, will include interest
accrued from and including the next preceding Interest Payment Date in respect
of which interest has been paid or duly provided for (or from and including
October 1, 1998, if no interest has been paid on this Security) to but excluding
such Interest Payment Date or the Stated Maturity Date or Redemption Date, as
the case may be. If any Interest Payment Date or the Stated Maturity Date or
Redemption Date falls on a day that is not a Business Day, as defined below,
principal, Make-Whole Amount, if any, and/or interest payable with respect to
such Interest Payment Date or Stated Maturity or Redemption Date, as the case
may be, will be paid on the next succeeding Business Day with the same force and
effect as if it were paid on the date such payment was due, and no interest
shall accrue on the amount so payable for the period from and after such
Interest Payment Date or Stated Maturity Date or Redemption Date, as the case
may be. "Business Day" means any day, other than a Saturday or Sunday, that is
neither a legal holiday nor a day on which banking institutions in the City of
New York are authorized by law, regulation or executive order to close.
All payments of principal, Make-Whole Amount, if any, and interest in respect of
this Security will be made by the Partnership in immediately available funds.
Reference is hereby made to the further provisions of this Security set forth on
the reverse hereof, which further provisions shall for all purposes have the
same effect as if set forth at this place.
Pursuant to a recommendation promulgated by the Committee on Uniform Security
Identification Procedures, the Partnership has caused "CUSIP" numbers to be
printed on the Securities of this series as a convenience to the Holders of such
Securities. No representation is made as to the correctness or accuracy of such
CUSIP numbers as printed on the Securities, and reliance may be placed only on
the other identification numbers printed hereon.
Unless the Certificate of Authentication hereon has been executed by the Trustee
by manual signature of one of its authorized signatories, this Security shall
not be entitled to any benefit under the Indenture, or be valid or obligatory
for any purpose.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Partnership has caused this instrument to be duly
executed under the facsimile corporate seal of its general partner.
