(a)           Sharing.  If any Lender shall obtain from Borrower payment of any principal of or interest on any Loan owing to it or payment of any other amount under this Agreement or any other Loan Document through the exercise (subject, as among the Lenders, to Section 12.25) of any right of set off, banker’s lien or counterclaim or similar right or otherwise (other than from Administrative Agent as provided herein), and, as a result of such payment, such Lender shall have received a greater percentage of the principal of or interest on the Loans or such other am ounts then due hereunder or thereunder by Borrower to such Lender than the percentage received by any other Lender, it shall promptly purchase from such other Lenders participations in (or, if and to the extent specified by such Lender, direct interests in) the Loans or such other amounts, respectively, owing to such other Lenders (or in interest due thereon, as the case may be) in such amounts, and make such other adjustments from time to time as shall be equitable, to the end that all the Lenders shall share the benefit of such excess payment (net of any expenses that may be incurred by such Lender in obtaining or preserving such excess payment) pro rata in accordance with the unpaid principal of and/or interest on the Loans or such other amounts, respectively, owing to each of the Lenders.  To such end all the Lenders shall make appropriate adjustments among themselves (by the resale of participations sold or otherwise) if such payment is rescinded or must otherwise be restored.
 
(b)           Consent by Borrower.  Borrower agrees that any Lender so purchasing such a participation (or direct interest) may exercise (subject, as among the Lenders, to Section 12.25) all rights of set off, banker’s lien, counterclaim or similar rights with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were a direct holder of Loans or other amounts (as the case may be) owing to such Lender in the amount of such participation.
 
 
40

 
(c)           Rights of Lenders; Bankruptcy.  Nothing contained herein shall require any Lender to exercise any such right or shall affect the right of any Lender to exercise, and retain the benefits of exercising, any such right with respect to any other indebtedness or obligation of Borrower.  If, under any applicable bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar law, any Lender receives a secured claim in lieu of a set off to which this Section 2.6(6) applies, such Lender shall, to the extent practicable, exercise its rights in respect of such secured claim in a m anner consistent with the rights of the Lenders entitled under this Section 2.6(6) to share in the benefits of any recovery on such secured claim.
 
Section 2.7Yield Protection; Etc.
 
(1)           Increased Costs.
 
(a)           Increased Costs Generally with Respect to Making or Maintaining LIBOR-based Loans.  If any Change in Law shall:
 
(A)           impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit, compulsory loan, insurance charge or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended or participated in by, any Lender (except any reserve requirement reflected in the Adjusted Libor Rate);
 
(B)           subject any Lender to any tax of any kind whatsoever with respect to this Agreement or any LIBOR-based Loan made by it, or change the basis of taxation of payments to such Lender in respect thereof (except for Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes covered by Section 2.7(6) and the imposition of, or any change in the rate of, any Excluded Tax payable by such Lender); or
 
(C)           impose on any Lender or the London interbank market any other condition affecting this Agreement or Eurodollar Loans made by such Lender.
 
and the result of any of the foregoing shall be to increase the cost to such Lenders of making or maintaining any LIBOR-based Loan (or of maintaining its obligation to make any such Loan) or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Lender hereunder (whether of principal, interest or otherwise), then Borrower will promptly upon demand pay to such Lender such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender for such additional costs incurred or reduction suffered.
 
(b)           Capital Requirements.  If any Lender reasonably determines that any Change in Law regarding capital requirements has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender’s capital or on the capital of such Lender’s holding company, if any, as a consequence of this Agreement or the Loans made by such Lender to a level below that which such Lender or such Lender’s holding company could have achieved but for such Change in Law (taking into consideration such Lender’s policies and the policies of such Lender’s holding company with respect to capital adequacy), then from time to time Borrower will promptly upon demand pay to such Lender, as the case may be, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or such Lender’s holding company for any such reduction suffered; provided that such Lender would cause similarly situated Borrowers to compensate them for such an event.
 
 
41

 
(c)           Certificates for Reimbursement.  A certificate of a Lender setting forth the amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Lender or its holding company, as the case may be, as specified in paragraph (a) or (b) of this Section 2.7(1) shall be delivered to Lead Borrower and shall be conclusive absent manifest error.  Borrower shall pay such Lender the amount shown as due on any such certificate within ten (10) days afte r receipt thereof by Lead Borrower.
 
(d)           Delays in Requests.  Failure or delay on the part of any Lender to demand compensation pursuant to this Section shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender’s right to demand such compensation; provided that Borrower shall not be required to compensate a Lender pursuant to this Section for any increased costs or reductions incurred more than 270 days prior to the date that such Lender notifies Lead Borrower of the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions and of such Lender’s intention to claim compensation therefor; provided further that, if the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the 270-day period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof.
 
(2)           Limitation on Types of Loans.  Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, if, on or prior to the determination of the Libor Rate for any Interest Period:
 
(a)           Administrative Agent reasonably determines that quotations of interest rates for the relevant deposits referred to in the definition of Libor Rate are not being provided in the relevant amounts or for the relevant maturities for purposes of determining rates of interest for LIBOR-based Loans; or
 
(b)           the Majority Lenders reasonably determine, and notify Administrative Agent that the relevant rates of interest referred to in the definition of Libor Rate are not likely adequate to cover the cost to such Lenders of making or maintaining LIBOR-based Loans for such Interest Period;
 
then Administrative Agent shall give Lead Borrower and each Lender prompt notice thereof and, so long as such condition remains in effect, the Lenders shall be under no obligation to make additional LIBOR-based Loans, to Continue LIBOR-based Loans or to Convert Loans of any other Type into LIBOR-based Loans, and Borrower shall, on the last day(s) of the then current Interest Period(s) for the outstanding LIBOR-based Loans, either prepay such Loans or such Loans shall be automatically Converted into Base Rate Loans.
 
(3)           Illegality.  Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, in the event that it becomes unlawful for any Lender or its Applicable Lending Office to honor its obligation to make or maintain LIBOR-based Loans hereunder (and, in the sole opinion of such Lender, the designation of a different Applicable Lending Office would either not avoid such unlawfulness or would be disadvantageous to such Lender), then such Lender shall promptly notify Lead Borrower thereof (with a copy to Administrative Agent) and such Lender’s obligation to make or Continue, or to Convert Loans of any other Type into, LIBOR-based Loans shall be suspended until such time as such Lender may again make and maintain LIBOR-ba sed Loans.
 
 
42

 
(4)           Treatment of Affected Loans.  If the obligation of any Lender to make LIBOR-based Loans or to Continue, or to Convert Base Rate Loans into, LIBOR-based Loans shall be suspended pursuant to Section 2.7(1)or Section 2.7(3), such Lender’s Loans shall be automatically Converted into Base Rate Loans on the last day(s) of the then current Interest Period(s) for Loans (or, in the case of a Conversion resulting f rom a circumstance described in Section 2.7(3), on such earlier date as such Lender may specify to Lead Borrower with a copy to Administrative Agent) and, unless and until such Lender gives notice as provided below that the circumstances specified in Section 2.7(1) or Section 2.7(3) that gave rise to such Conversion no longer exist:
 
(a)           to the extent that such Lender’s Loans have been so Converted, all payments and prepayments of principal that would otherwise be applied to such Lender’s Loans shall be applied instead to its Base Rate Loans; and
 
(b)           all Loans that would otherwise be made or Continued by such Lender as LIBOR-based Loans shall be made or Continued instead as Base Rate Loans, and all Loans of such Lender that would otherwise be Converted into LIBOR-based Loans shall remain as Base Rate Loans.
 
If such Lender gives notice to Lead Borrower with a copy to Administrative Agent that the circumstances specified in Section 2.7(1) or Section 2.7(3) that gave rise to the Conversion of such Lender’s Loans pursuant to this Section 2.7(4) no longer exist (which such Lender agrees to do promptly upon such circumstances ceasing to exist) at a time when LIBOR-based Loans made by other Lenders ar e outstanding, such Lender’s Base Rate Loans shall be automatically Converted, on the first day(s) of the next succeeding Interest Period(s) for such outstanding LIBOR-based Loans, to the extent necessary so that, after giving effect thereto, all Base Rate Loans and LIBOR-based Loans are allocated among the Lenders ratably (as to principal amounts, Types and Interest Periods) in accordance with their respective Commitments.
 
(5)           LIBOR Breakage Costs.  Borrower shall upon request pay to Administrative Agent for account of each Lender, such amount or amounts as shall be sufficient (in the reasonable opinion of each Lender) to compensate it for any loss, cost or expense that such Lender determines is attributable to:
 
(a)           any payment, prepayment or Conversion of a LIBOR-based Loan made by such Lender for any reason (including, without limitation, the acceleration of the Loans pursuant to Administrative Agent’s or the Lenders’ rights referred to in Article 11) on a date other than the last day of the Interest Period for such Loan; or
 
(b)           any failure by Borrower for any reason to borrow a LIBOR-based Loan from such Lender on the date for such borrowing specified in any Request for Loan Advance.
 
 
43

 
Without limiting the effect of the preceding sentence, such compensation shall include an amount equal to the excess, if any, of (i) the amount of interest that otherwise would have accrued on the principal amount so paid, prepaid, Converted or not borrowed for the period from the date of such payment, prepayment, Conversion or failure to borrow to the last day of the then current Interest Period for such Loan (or, in the case of a failure to borrow, the Interest Period for such Loan that would have commenced on the date specified for such borrowing) at the applicable rate of interest for such Loan provided for herein over (ii) the amount of interest that otherwise would have accrued on such principal amount at a rate per annum equal to the interest component of the amount such Lender would have bid in the London interbank market for Doll ar deposits of leading banks in amounts comparable to such principal amount and with maturities comparable to such period (as reasonably determined by such Lender), or if such Lender shall cease to make such bids, the equivalent rate, as reasonably determined by such Lender, derived from Page 3750 of the Telerate Service or other publicly available source as described in the definition of Libor Rate.  A certificate of any Lender setting forth any amount or amounts that such Lender is entitled to receive pursuant to this section shall be delivered to Lead Borrower and shall be conclusive absent manifest error.  Borrower shall pay such Lender the amount shown as due on any such certificate within ten (10) days after receipt thereof.
 
(6)           Taxes.
 
(a)           Payments Free of Taxes.  Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of Borrower hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall be made free and clear of and without deduction for any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes; provided that if Borrower shall be required to deduct any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes from such payments, then (i) the sum payable shall be increased as necessary so that after making all required deductions (including deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section), Administrative Agent or Lender (as the case may be) receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions been made, (ii) Borrower shall make such deductions and (iii) Borrower shall pay the full amount deducted to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.
 
(b)           Payment of Other Taxes by Borrowers.  Without limiting the provisions of paragraph (a) above, Borrower shall pay any Other Taxes but not Excluded Taxes to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.

(d)           Evidence of Payments.  As soon as practicable after any payment of Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes by Borrower to a Governmental Authority, Lead Borrower shall deliver to Administrative Agent 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 Administrative Agent.

(f)           Refunds.  If Administrative Agent or a Lender determines, in its sole discretion, that it has received a refund of any Taxes or Other Taxes as to which it has been indemnified by Borrower or with respect to which Borrower has paid additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.7(6), it shall pay over such refund to Borrower (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made, or additional amounts paid, by such Borrower under this Section 2.7(6) with respect to the Taxes or Other Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses of Administrative Agent or such Lender, as the case may be, and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund); provided, that Borrower, upon the request of Administrative Agent or such Lender, agrees to repay the amount paid over to such Borrower (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) to Administrative Agent or such Lender in the event Administrative Agent or such Lender is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority.  This section shall not be construed to require Administrative Agent or any Lender to make available its tax returns (or any other information relating to its taxes which it deems confidential) to Borrower or any other Person..
 
(7)           Replacement of Lenders.  If any Lender requests compensation pursuant to Section 2.7(1) or Section 2.7(6), or any Lender’s obligation to Continue Loans of any Type, or to Convert Loans of any Type into the other Type of Loan, shall be suspended pursuant to Section 2.7(2) or Section 2.7(3) (any such Lender requesting such compensation, or whose obligations are so suspended, being herein called a “Requesting Lender”), Lead Borrower, upon three (3) Business Days’ notice, may require that such Requesting Lender transfer all of its right, title and interest under this Agreement and such Requesting Lender’s Note to any bank or other financial institution (a “Proposed Lender”) identified by Lead Borrower that is satisfactory to Administrative Agent (i) if such Proposed Lender agrees to assume all of the obligations of such Requesting Lender hereunder, and to purchase all of such Requesting Lender’s Loans hereunder for consideration equal to the aggregate outstanding principal amount of such Requesting Lender’s Loans, together with accrued interest thereon to the date of such purchase and pay all other amounts accrued and payable hereunder to such Requesting Lender as of the date of such transfer (including any fees accrued hereunder and any amounts that would be payable under Section 2.7(1), Section 2.7(5) or Section 2.7(6).  Subject to the provisions of Section 12.23(1), such Proposed Lender shall be a “Lender” for all purposes hereunder.  Without prejudice to the survival of any other agreement of Borrower hereunder, the agreements of Borrower contained in Section 2.7(1) and Section 2.7(6) (without duplication of any payments made to such Requesting Lender by Borrower or the Proposed Lender) shall survive for the benefit of such Requesting Lender under this Section 2.7(7) with respect to the time prior to such replacement.
 
 
45

(8)           Lead Borrower shall give immediate written notice of any loss in excess of $100,000 to the insurance carrier and to Administrative Agent.  In connection with losses in excess of $100,000, but less than or equal to $2,000,000, Borrower and Administrative Agent shall cooperate in all matters related to the loss including, without limitation, making proof of loss, adjusting and compromising any claim under the insurance policies, appearing in and prosecuting any action arising from such insurance policies, and collecting and receiving insurance proceeds.  In connection with losses in excess of $2,000,000, Borrower hereby irrevocably authorizes and empowers Administrative Agent, 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 Administrative Agent’s expenses incurred in the collection of such proceeds.  Nothing contained in this Section 3.1(8), however, shall require Administrative Agent or any Lender to incur any expense or take any action hereunder.
 
Section 3.2Condemnation Awards.  Lead Borrower shall immediately notify Administrative Agent of the institution of any proceeding for the condemnation or other taking of the Project or any portion thereof.  Administrative Agent may participate in any such proceeding and Lead Borrower will deliver to Administrative Agent all instruments necessary or required by Administrative Agent to permit such participation.  Without Administrative Agent’s prior consent (subject to the approval of the Majority Lenders), Borrower (1) shall not agree to any compensation or award, and (2) shall not take any action or fail to take any action which would cause the compensa tion 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 Administrative Agent.  Borrower authorizes Administrative Agent to collect and receive such awards and compensation, to give proper receipts and acquittances therefor, and in Administrative Agent’s sole discretion (which Administrative Agent shall exercise at the direction of the Majority Lenders) to apply the same toward the payment of the Loans, notwithstanding that the Loans 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 the Threshold Amount and Borrower requests that such proceeds be used for non structural site improvements (such as landscape, driveway, walkway and parking area repairs) requi red to be made as a result of such condemnation, Administrative Agent will apply the award to such restoration in accordance with the terms applicable to insurance proceeds set forth in Section 3.3.  Borrower, upon request by Administrative Agent, shall execute all instruments requested to confirm the assignment of the awards and compensation to Administrative Agent, free and clear of all liens, charges or encumbrances.

Section 3.3Use and Application of Insurance Proceeds.  Administrative Agent shall apply insurance proceeds to costs of restoring the Project or the Loans as follows:
 
(1)           if the loss is less than or equal to the Threshold Amount, Administrative Agent shall promptly apply the insurance proceeds to restoration provided (a) no Event of Default exists, and (b) Borrower promptly commences and is diligently pursuing restoration of the Project;
 
(2)           if the loss exceeds the Threshold Amount but is not more than ten percent (10%) of the replacement value of the Improvements (for projects containing multiple phases or stand alone structures, such calculation to be based on the damaged phase or structure, not the project as a whole), Administrative Agent shall apply the insurance proceeds to restoration provided that at all times during such restoration (a) no Event of Default exists; (b) Administrative Agent determines that there are sufficient funds including Borrower’s equity available to restore and repair the Project to a condition reasonably approved by Administrative Agent; (c) Administrative Agent reasonably determines that any operating deficits, including all debt service, which will be incurred with re spect to the Project following any such loss and until the restoration has been completed, will be covered out of (A) the insurance proceeds, (B) the proceeds of business interruption insurance, if applicable, (C) Net Operating Income of the Project or (D) by other funds of Borrower; (d) Administrative Agent reasonably determines that all Major Leases will remain in effect after restoration is complete; (e) Administrative Agent determines that restoration and repair of the Project to a condition reasonably approved by Administrative Agent will be completed prior to the Completion Date; (f) Borrower promptly commences and is diligently pursuing restoration of the Project; and (g) if still applicable, Administrative Agent shall have unilaterally determined that the Guaranty of Completion shall remain in full force and effect during the period of restoration, or Guarantor shall have executed and delivered to Administrative Agent a guaranty of completion with respect to all restoration in substantially the same form as the Guaranty of Completion and otherwise reasonably satisfactory to Administrative Agent;
 
(3)           if the conditions set forth above are not satisfied or the loss exceeds the maximum amount specified in Section 3.3(2) above, Administrative Agent may in its sole discretion (subject to the approval of the Majority Lenders) apply any insurance proceeds it may receive to the payment of the Loans or allow all or a portion of such proceeds to be used for the restoration of the Project.
 
Section 3.4Disbursement of Proceeds.
 
(1)           The insurance proceeds shall be held by Administrative Agent in a Controlled Account and shall constitute additional security for the Loans.  Upon receipt of evidence reasonably satisfactory to Administrative Agent that all the conditions precedent, including those set forth in Section 3.3(2) above, have been satisfied, the insurance proceeds shall be disbursed by Administrative Agent to, or as directed by, Lead Borrower from time to time during the course of the restoration in accordance with the applicable provisions of Article 4 and Schedule 4 of this Agreement and (to the extent such disbursements are related to construction costs) the Building Loan Agreement.
 
 
52

 
(2)           All plans and specifications required in connection with the restoration shall be subject to prior review and reasonable approval by Administrative Agent and by an independent consulting engineer selected by Administrative Agent (the “Restoration Consultant”); provided, however, that if the plans and specifications are consistent with those attached to the Building Loan Agreement, Administrative Agent shall be deemed to have approved such plans and specifications.  Administrative Agent shall have the non-exclusive use of the plans and spe cifications and all permits, licenses and approvals required or obtained in connection with the restoration.  The identity of the contractors, subcontractors and materialmen engaged in the restoration, as well as all Major Contracts, shall be subject to prior review and reasonable approval by Administrative Agent and the Restoration Consultant.  All reasonable costs and expenses incurred by Administrative Agent in connection with making the insurance proceeds available for the restoration including reasonable counsel fees and disbursements and the Restoration Consultant’s fees, shall be paid by Borrower.  Borrower shall also obtain, at its sole cost and expense, all necessary government approvals as and when required in connection with such restoration and provide copies thereof to Administrative Agent and Restoration Consultant.
 
(3)           In no event shall Administrative Agent be obligated to make disbursements of the insurance proceeds in excess of an amount equal to the costs actually incurred from time to time for work in place as part of the restoration, as certified by the Restoration Consultant, minus the Retainage.  Administrative Agent shall establish, maintain and release any Retainage in accordance with the terms of the Building Loan Agreement.
 
(4)           Administrative Agent shall not be obligated to make disbursements of the insurance proceeds more frequently than once per month.
 
(5)           If at any time the insurance proceeds or the undisbursed balance thereof shall not, in the reasonable opinion of Administrative Agent in consultation with the Restoration Consultant, be sufficient to pay in full the balance of the costs which are estimated by the Restoration Consultant to be incurred in connection with the completion of the restoration, Borrower shall deposit the deficiency (the “Insurance Proceeds Deficiency”) with, or deliver a Collateral Letter of Credit in the amount of such deficiency to, Administrative Agent within ten (10) Business Days of Administrative Agent’s request and before any further disbursement of the insurance proceeds shall be made.& #160; The Insurance Proceeds Deficiency shall be held in a Controlled Account and shall be disbursed for costs actually incurred in connection with the restoration on the same conditions applicable to the disbursement of the insurance proceeds, and, until so disbursed, shall constitute additional security for the Loans.
 
(6)           After the Restoration Consultant certifies to Administrative Agent that a restoration has been substantially completed in accordance with the provisions of this Section 3.4, and the receipt by Administrative Agent of evidence satisfactory to Administrative Agent that all costs incurred in connection with the restoration have been paid in full, the excess, if any, of the insurance proceeds and the remaining balance, if any, of the Insurance Proceeds Deficiency deposited with Administrative Agent shall, so long as no Potential Default or Event of Default has occurred, be paid to Lead Borrower.  If a Potential Defau lt or Event of Default has occurred, the remaining balance of the Insurance Proceeds Deficiency shall be applied to repayment of the Loans.
 
 
53

 
(7)           All insurance proceeds not required (i) to be made available for the restoration or (ii) to be returned to Lead Borrower as excess insurance proceeds pursuant to subsection (6) above may (A) be retained and applied by Administrative Agent toward the payment of the Loans, whether or not then due and payable, in such order, priority and proportions as Administrative Agent in its sole discretion shall deem proper, or, (B) at the sole discretion of Administrative Agent, the same may be paid, either in whole or in part, to Lead Borrower for such purposes and upon such conditions as Administrative Agent shall designate.
 
(8)           Notwithstanding any casualty, Borrower shall continue to make payments with respect to the outstanding principal amount in the manner provided in the Notes, this Agreement and the other Loan Documents and the outstanding principal amount shall not be reduced unless and until (i) any insurance proceeds or condemnation award shall have been actually received by Administrative Agent, (ii) Administrative Agent shall have deducted its reasonable expenses of collecting such proceeds and (iii) Administrative Agent shall have applied any portion of the balance thereof to the repayment of the outstanding principal amount in accordance with Section 4.3.  The Lenders shall not be limited to the interest paid on any condemnation award but shall continue to be entitled to receive interest as provided in Article 2.

54

 
(2)           Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, the Lenders shall have no obligation to advance any Loan unless Administrative Agent is, at all times, satisfied that the Improvements can be constructed Lien free, substantially in accordance with the Plans and Specifications (or the Tenant Improvement Plans in the case of Tenant Improvement Work) for the sums set forth in the Budget (or, if more, Borrower has furnished the difference in cash or cash equivalents, subject to the provisions of Section 4.3, Section 4.4 and Section 4.5), by the Completion Date or, with respect to Tenant Improvement Work, such date as shall be required for the completion of the applicable Tenant Improvement Work under an Approved Lease.  Administrative Agent will endeavor to give notice to Lead Borrower of its intention not to authorize disbursement of any Loan proceeds based on the foregoing, but neither the Lenders nor Administrative Agent shall have any liability hereunder should Administrative Agent fail to do so, and no failure by Administrative Agent to give such notice shall affect Administrative Agent’s or any Lender’s rights under this subsection (2).  ; Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if such applicable conditions precedent are not satisfied for the full required disbursement, then, to the extent that the amounts in any Request for Loan Advance are broken down such that Administrative Agent is satisfied that all of the above conditions are met with respect to a portion of any Loan advance, the Lenders shall advance such portion of the requested Loan advance.
 
Section 4.2Procedure for Making Disbursements of Loan Proceeds.
 
(1)           After the Closing Date, disbursements shall be made from time to time as construction progresses pursuant to a request for advance in the applicable form attached hereto as Exhibit F (each, a “Request for Loan Advance”), but no more frequently than once in each calendar month.
 
(2)           Each Request for Loan Advance with respect to Loans shall (a) be duly executed by an Authorized Officer on behalf of Lead Borrower, (b) be submitted to Administrative Agent and the Construction Consultant not less than ten (10) Business Days prior to the proposed disbursement date for such Loans, (c) specify the items to be paid or reimbursed with the proceeds of the requested Loans, (d) include the documentation required to be included therewith under Schedule 4 and (e) be in the minimum amounts required under Section 2.6(3).

Section 4.3Loan Balancing.  
 
(1)           Borrower represents that the Budget sets forth all anticipated costs to be incurred by Borrower in connection with the ownership, development, construction, financing, marketing, maintenance and leasing of the Improvements, from time to time through the Maturity Date as extended pursuant to Section 2.5 hereof.  Borrower further agrees as follows:
 
 
55

 
(a)           Subject to reallocations pursuant to Section 4.4 and Section 4.5, if at any time, the projected costs anticipated to be incurred for any item of Construction Work or for the ownership, development, financing, marketing, maintenance or leasing of the Improvements through the Maturity Date exceed the amount set forth in the Budget for such item (as the same may be adjusted in accordance with the terms of this Agreement), as determined by Administrative Agent and the Construction Consultant in their reasonable discretion (including any such determination that the undisbursed Loan proceeds allocated for the payment of future interest (the “ ;Interest Reserve”) is insufficient) based on factors, including, but not limited to, (1) Administrative Agent’s projections of interest rates for period(s) up to and including the full remaining term of the Loan (and permitted extensions); (2) the effect of any Hedge Agreement; (3) cost overruns or Change Orders; or (4) failure of the Improvements to lease at the rate of absorption or otherwise at rates and terms projected by Borrower, then the Loans shall be deemed not “In Balance.”
 
(b)           If the Loans are deemed not “In Balance,” then Borrower shall, at Administrative Agent’s option, within ten (10) Business Days after written notice from Administrative Agent either (a) deposit with Administrative Agent an amount sufficient to cover such deficiency (a “Deficiency Deposit”), which Deficiency Deposit shall be deposited with Administrative Agent in the Controlled Account (the “Deficiency Deposit Account”), (b) make one or more equity contributions to be used by Borrower to pay costs that will bring the Loans In Balance (an “Equity Balancing Contribution”), or (c) deliver a Collateral Letter of Credit in an amount such that the available proceeds thereunder would be sufficient to bring the Loans In Balance and upon which Administrative Agent shall be entitled to draw in compliance with the provisions set forth below in this Section 4.3.  Administrative Agent shall not be required to authorize any disbursement of any Loans before receiving (i) payment of any such Deficiency Deposit into the Deficiency Deposit Account and the prior application of such Deficiency Deposit to the payment of Project Costs so as to bring the Loans In Balance, (ii) verification that an Equity Balancing Contribution has been made and the proceeds thereof used for the payment of Project Costs on account of the Improvements, so as to bring the Loans In Balance or (iii) a Collateral Letter of Credit as set forth above.  Failure of Borrower to provide satisfactory verification of an Equity Balancing Contribution or deliver a Deficiency Letter of Credit as required above shall be deemed Borrower’s election to make a Deficiency Deposit.  The Deficiency Deposit shall be allocated to the Project Loan Budget and the Budget, as applicable, and shall be applied to the payment of Project Costs on account of the Improvements prior to any further disbursement of the Loans.
 
(c)           The balances of the applicable Contingency Fund from time to time shall not be considered for purposes of determining whether the Loans are In Balance.
 
(2)           If an Event of Default shall occur and be continuing, Administrative Agent (subject to the provisions of Section 14.3) may, at its option, in addition to exercising any other rights or remedies available under the Loan Documents, (A) apply any unexpended Deficiency Deposit to (or draw on any Collateral Letter of Credit to pay) the costs of completion of the Improvements and/or (B) apply any unexpended Deficiency Deposit to (or draw on any Collateral Letter of Credit for application of the sums drawn thereunder to) the immediate reduction of any amounts due under the Notes and the other Loan Documents.  With respe ct to any Collateral Letter of Credit that Borrower may furnish or cause to be furnished to Administrative Agent in accordance with the terms of this Section 4.3:
 
 
56

 
(a)           Administrative Agent will be entitled, among other things, to make one or more draws pursuant to and in accordance with this Agreement or the Building Loan Agreement, as applicable, by presentment thereof to the issuing bank accompanied only by Administrative Agent’s clean sight-draft, it being intended that the issuing bank shall have no right to inquire as to Administrative Agent’s right to draw upon such Collateral Letter of Credit;
 
(b)           Administrative Agent shall be entitled, among other things, to draw upon each Collateral Letter of Credit pursuant to this Agreement or the Building Loan Agreement, as applicable, in whole, or in part from time to time, to the extent (without taking into account the Collateral Letter of Credit) the Loan is not In Balance, (i) in order to pay any costs not covered by Loan proceeds, Equity Balancing Contributions or Deficiency Deposits or (ii) upon any Event of Default; and
 
(c)           Administrative Agent shall have the right to draw upon any Collateral Letter of Credit within ten (10) Business Days prior to the expiration date of such Collateral Letter of Credit and each renewal and extension thereof unless, prior to such expiration date of such Collateral Letter of Credit and each renewal and extension thereof, Borrower shall have furnished a replacement, extension or renewal Collateral Letter of Credit, acceptable to Administrative Agent, it being the intent hereof that at no time shall the unexpired term of any Collateral Letter of Credit be less than ten (10) Business Days.  If Administrative Agent draws upon a Collateral Letter of Credit pursuant to the terms hereof, then Administrative Agent shall hold the proceeds thereof in a Cont rolled Account as a Deficiency Deposit.  Administrative Agent shall also be entitled to draw upon a Collateral Letter of Credit if the credit rating of the issuing bank no longer meets the standard required of a Collateral Letter of Credit and Borrower does not deliver to Administrative Agent a replacement letter of credit that otherwise conforms to the requirements for Deficiency Letters of Credit within ten (10) days following notice of the same from Administrative Agent, or if Administrative Agent reasonably believes that its rights to draw on such Collateral Letter of Credit are in imminent jeopardy of not being honored.
 
Section 4.4Budget Contingencies.  The Budget contains line items designated for contingency for Hard Costs and Soft Costs (collectively, the “Contingency Fund”) which represent amounts necessary to provide reasonable assurances to Administrative Agent and the Lenders that funds are available within the Budget if additional costs, expenses and/or delays are incurred or additional interest accrues on the Loans, or other unanticipated events or problems occur.  Upon request of Lead Borrower, Administrative Agent may, in its reasonable discretion, re-allocate a portion of the Co ntingency Fund to cover cost overruns, cost of change orders, additional interests and other anticipated costs based upon the percentage of completion of the Construction Work (e.g. (and as an example only) fifty percent (50%) of the Contingency Fund may be allocated when the project is fifty percent (50%) complete).  Any such re-allocation shall reduce, by the amount of such re-allocation, the amount of the Contingency Fund available to be allocated thereafter.  Subject to the foregoing, Borrower agrees that the decisions with respect to utilizing any portion of the Contingency Fund shall be made by Administrative Agent in its reasonable discretion and that the Loans may not be In Balance, and Borrower may be required to make a Deficiency Deposit or Equity Balancing Contribution, even if funds remain in the Contingency Fund.
 
 
57

 
Section 4.5Budget Line Items.   The Budget includes as line items (collectively, “Budget Line Items”) the cost of all labor, materials, equipment, fixtures and furnishings needed for the completion of all Construction Work, and all other costs, fees and expenses relating in any way whatsoever to the Construction Work and the operation of the Project.  Borrower agrees that all Loans shall be used only for the Budget Line Items for which such Loans are made (as re-allocated from time to time in accordance with the terms of this Agreement).  Borrower agrees that, while an Event of Default exists, Administrative Agent may, at any time and from time to time without prior written notice to Lead Borrower or Borrower, authorize the disbursement of the Budget Line Items for the purposes for which they have been set aside, or for any other purposes related to the Construction Work or otherwise provided for in the Budget as Administrative Agent may determine, either by payment of such items or by reimbursement to Borrower for payments actually made by Borrower for such items.  Administrative Agent shall not be obligated to authorize the disbursement of any amount for any category of costs set forth as a Budget Line Item which is greater than the amount set forth for such category in the applicable Budget Line Item; provided, however, that subject to Administrative Agent’s prior reasonable consent, Borrower may apply savings from one Budget Line Item to cost overruns in another Budget Line Item or to the Contingency Fund, or to any other unbudgeted Project Co st provided (a) there are no Potential Defaults or Events of Defaults existing, (b) all costs to be paid out of the Budget Line Item from which funds are being re-allocated have been paid or sufficient sums remain in said line item to pay such costs when the same become due, (c) said savings are actual savings and are documented or otherwise established to the satisfaction of Administrative Agent and the Construction Consultant in their reasonable discretion, (d) such reallocation will not violate the provisions of the Lien Law or affect the priority of the Mortgages on the Project and (e) Administrative Agent, at Borrower’s sole cost and expense, obtains endorsements to the Title Policies insuring against “any statutory lien for services, labor or materials furnished or contracted for prior to the date hereof i.e., the date of such endorsement (or any statutory lien for services, labor or materials furnished after the date hereof, the prio rity of which lien relates back to services, labor or materials furnished or contracted for prior to the date hereof), and which has now gained or which may hereafter gain priority over the estate or interest of the insured as shown in Schedule A of this policy,” as a result of the reallocation of such Budget Line Item; provided, however, the Borrower shall not reallocate any portion of the Soft Costs Budget Line Items which have been allocated to the payment of real estate taxes and the interest reserve.
 
Section 4.6Interest; Fees; and Expenses.
 
(1)           Included in the Budget are projected amounts for (a) interest on the Loans, (b) the Agency Fee, (c) the fees and expenses of the Construction Consultant, Administrative Agent’s counsel and the Title Company and (d) the fees and expenses related to the recording of the Mortgages.  Subject to Borrower’s compliance with all of the conditions set forth in Schedule 4 and this Article 4, Lead Borrower may in any Request for Loan Advance request advances for the purpose of paying the aforesaid items due at such time, in which event Administrati ve Agent shall be authorized and is hereby directed to disburse the amount thereof to the Persons entitled to such payments.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement or the other Loan Documents, Lead Borrower shall not have the right to request the advance of any Loans for any items covered by clauses (a) through (d) above to the extent Operating Revenues are available to pay such items.
 
 
58

(3)           Subject to the provisions of Section 14.3, Administrative Agent in its sole and absolute discretion may (but shall not be obligated to do so) direct the Lenders to make such Loans for disbursements authorized under this Section 4.6 notwithstanding that the Loans are not In Balance or that a Potential Default or Event of Default exists under the terms of this Agreement or any other Loan Document.  Such disbursements shall constitute a Loan and be added to the princip al balance of the Notes, and the Lenders shall make the applicable Loans to fund any such disbursements.  The authorization hereby granted is irrevocable, and no further direction, authorization or Request for Loan Advance from Lead Borrower is necessary for the Lenders to make such disbursements.  Nothing contained in this Section 4.6 shall require Administrative Agent to direct the Lenders to make Loans for payment of any of the items set forth in subsection (2) above if the other conditions set forth in this Agreement for Loans are not satisfied.

Section 4.10No Waiver or Approval by Reason of Loan Advances.   The making of any Loans by the Lenders shall not be deemed an acceptance or approval by Administrative Agent or the Lenders (for the benefit of Borrower or any third party) of the Construction Work or other work theretofore done or constructed or to the Lenders’ obligations to make further Loans, nor, in the event Borrower is unable to satisfy any condition, shall any such failure to insist upon strict compliance have the effect of precluding Administrative Agent or the Lenders from thereafter declaring such inability to be an Event of Default as herein provided.  Administrative Agent’s an d/or the Lenders’ waiver of, or failure to enforce, any conditions to or requirements associated with any Loans in any one or more circumstances shall not constitute or imply a waiver of such conditions or requirements in any other circumstances.
 
Section 4.11Authorization to Make Loan Advances to Cure Borrower’s Defaults.  If an Event of Default shall occur, Administrative Agent (subject to the provisions of Section 14.3) may (but shall not be required to) perform any of such covenants and agreements with respect to which Borrower is in Event of Default.  Any amounts expended by Administrative Agent in so doing and any amounts expended by Administrative Agent in connection therewith shall constitute a Loan and be added to the outstanding principal balance of the Loans, and the Lenders shall make the applicable Loans to fund any such disbursements.  The authorization hereby granted is irrevocable, and no prior notice to or further direction or authorization from Borrower is necessary for Administrative Agent to make such disbursements.
 
Section 4.12Designation of Lead Borrower as Agent for Borrower.

Section 4.14No Third-Party Benefit.  This Agreement is solely for the benefit of the Lenders, Administrative Agent, Lead Borrower and Borrower.  All conditions of the obligations of the Lenders to make advances hereunder are imposed solely and exclusively for the benefit of the Lenders and may be freely waived or modified in whole or in part by the Lenders at any time if in their sole discretion they deem it advisable to do so, and no Person other than Lead Borrower or Borrower (provided, however, that all conditions have been satisfied) sha ll have standing to require the Lenders to make any Loan advances or shall be a beneficiary of this Agreement or any advances to be made hereunder.

(2)           Administrative Agent shall be entitled, among other things, to draw upon each Collateral Letter of Credit, in whole, or in part from time to time, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default or under the other circumstances under which a draw shall be permitted under the Loan Documents or the Collateral Letter of Credit;
 
 
84

 
(3)           Administrative Agent shall have the right to draw upon any Collateral Letter of Credit within thirty (30) days prior to the expiration date of such Collateral Letter of Credit and each renewal and extension thereof unless, prior to such expiration date of such Collateral Letter of Credit and each renewal and extension thereof, the Borrower shall have furnished a replacement, extension or renewal Collateral Letter of Credit, acceptable to Administrative Agent, it being the intent hereof that at no time shall the unexpired term of any Collateral Letter of Credit be less than thirty (30) days.  If Administrative Agent draws upon a Collateral Letter of Credit pursuant to the terms of this subsection (3), then Administrative Agent shall hold the proceeds thereof in a Controlled Account as additional collateral for the Obligations, to be applied in accordance with subsection (5) below;
 
(4)           Administrative Agent shall also be entitled to draw upon a Collateral Letter of Credit if Administrative Agent believes that its rights to draw on such Collateral Letter of Credit could be in jeopardy.  Without limiting the foregoing, Administrative Agent shall also be entitled to draw on a Collateral Letter of Credit if the credit rating or financial condition of the issuing bank is no longer meets the minimum rating contained in the definition of Collateral Letter of Credit.  Following a draw by Administrative Agent on a Collateral Letter of Credit solely because of the deterioration of the creditworthiness of the issuing bank, Administrative Agent will deposit such proceeds in a Controlled Account as security for the purposes for which such Letter of Credit was delivered and Administrative Agent shall be entitled to draw upon such proceeds to the same extent it would have been entitled to make a draw under the applicable Letter of Credit.  Administrative Agent shall disburse such proceeds to Lead Borrower provided (i) Borrower delivers to Administrative Agent a replacement Collateral Letter of Credit within ten (10) days of Administrative Agent’s draw, (ii) there exists no Event of Default or Potential Default and (iii) Borrower pays all of Administrative Agent’s fees and expenses in connection with such draw and disbursement;
 
(5)           No draw by Administrative Agent on any Collateral Letter of Credit shall cure or be deemed to cure any Event of Default or limit in any respect any of Administrative Agent’s or the Lenders’ remedies under the Loan Documents, it being understood that Administrative Agent’s and the Lenders’ rights and remedies hereunder shall be cumulative and Administrative Agent and the Lenders shall have no obligations to apply the proceeds of any draw to missed installments or other amounts then due and unpaid under the Loans.  Proceeds of any draw upon a Collateral Letter of Credit (after reimbursement of any costs and expenses, including attorneys’ fees and reimbursements, incurred by Administrative Agent in connection with such draw), other t han a draw made in accordance with Section 9.14(4), may be applied by Administrative Agent to the payment of the Obligations in such manner as Administrative Agent may determine.  No delay or omission of Administrative Agent or the Lenders in exercising any right to draw on a Collateral Letter of Credit shall impair any such right, or shall be construed as a waiver of, or acquiescence in, any Event of Default; and
 
(6)           Administrative Agent shall, upon request, release its rights in any Collateral Letters of Credit and surrender such Collateral Letters of Credit to the issuing bank upon the payment in full of all obligations under the Loan Documents.

(4)           Borrower shall cause all payments payable by a Third-Party Counterparty under the Hedge Agreement to be deposited into an account designated by Administrative Agent.  On the due date for interest on the Loans each month, the amounts so deposited in such account shall be debited, and applied to pay the accrued but unpaid interest on the Loans due on such date, before applying any portion of the Loan proceeds which is allocated to the Interest Reserve for such purpose, and before applying any Operating Revenues for such purpose.

(a)           the Third-Party Counterparty is duly organized, validly existing, and in good standing under the laws of its jurisdiction of incorporation or organization and has the organizational power and authority to execute and deliver, and to perform its obligations under, the Third-Party Hedge Agreement;
 
 
86

 
(b)           the execution and delivery of the Third-Party Hedge Agreement by the Third-Party Counterparty, and any other agreement which the Third-Party Counterparty has executed and delivered pursuant thereto, and the performance of its obligations thereunder have been and remain duly authorized by all necessary action and do not contravene any provision of its certificate of incorporation or by-laws (or equivalent organizational documents) or any law, regulation or contractual restriction binding on or affecting it or its property;
 
(c)           all consents, authorizations and approvals required for the execution and delivery by the Third-Party Counterparty of the Third-Party Hedge Agreement, and any other agreement which the Third-Party Counterparty has executed and delivered pursuant thereto, and the performance of its obligations thereunder have been obtained and remain in full force and effect, all conditions thereof have been duly complied with, and no other action by, and no notice to or filing with any governmental authority or regulatory body is required for such execution, delivery or performance; and
 
(d)           the Third-Party Hedge Agreement, and any other agreement which the Third-Party Counterparty has executed and delivered pursuant thereto, has been duly executed and delivered by the Third-Party Counterparty and constitutes the legal, valid and binding obligation of the Third-Party Counterparty, enforceable against the Third-Party Counterparty in accordance with its terms, subject to applicable bankruptcy, insolvency and similar laws affecting creditors’ rights generally, and subject, as to enforceability, to general principles of equity (regardless of whether enforcement is sought in a proceeding in equity or at law).
 
(7)           For so long as a Hedge Agreement is in effect, Administrative Agent may elect to cause advances of the Loan proceeds available for interest payments to be used to make “regular” payments due under the Hedge Agreement (i.e., other than those payments which are due upon the termination of such Hedge Agreement), in addition to interest payments on the Loans.
 
Section 9.16Reserves.  Administrative Agent may at any time after the occurrence of an Event of Default, at its option (or at the direction of the Majority Lenders), to be exercised by written notice to Lead Borrower, require the deposit by Borrower, on each Payment Date, of additional amounts sufficient to discharge when due the obligations of Borrower under Section 9.3 and Section 3.1 (if applicable, and excluding all income, franchise, single bu siness or other taxes imposed on Borrower unless the same is in lieu of real estate taxes) when they become due.  Simultaneously with the initial deposit under this Section 9.16, Borrower shall deposit with Administrative Agent an amount determined by Administrative Agent to be necessary to ensure that there will be on deposit with Administrative Agent an amount which, when added to the monthly payments subsequently required to be deposited with Administrative Agent hereunder on account of Real Estate Taxes, insurance premiums, will result in there being on deposit with Administrative Agent an amount sufficient to pay the next due periodic installment of Real Estate Taxes, insurance premiums one (1) month prior to the delinquency date thereof and the next periodic payments of insurance premiums one (1) month prior to the due date thereof.  C ommencing on the first Business Day of the first calendar month after the occurrence of an Event of Default and continuing thereafter on the first Business Day of each month thereafter, Borrower shall pay to Administrative Agent deposits in an amount equal to one-twelfth (1/12) of the yearly amount of Real Estate Taxes, insurance premiums that will next become due and payable on the Project.  The determination of the amount to be deposited with Administrative Agent with each installment shall be made by Administrative Agent in its reasonable discretion.  Such amounts shall be held by Administrative Agent in an account under the sole dominion and control of Administrative Agent and applied (together with any interest earned thereon) to the payment of the obligations in respect to which such amounts were deposited or, at the option of the Administrative Agent, to the payment of said obligations in such order of priority as Administrative Agent shall determine, on or before the respective da tes on which the same or any of them would become delinquent.  If one (1) month prior to the due date of any of the aforementioned obligations the amounts then on deposit therefor shall be insufficient for the payment of such obligations in full, Borrower, within five (5) days after demand, shall deposit the amount of the deficiency with Administrative Agent.  Nothing herein contained shall be deemed to affect any right or remedy of Administrative Agent and/or the Lenders under the provisions of this Agreement or the other Loans Documents or of any statute or rule of law to pay any such amount and to add the amount so paid together with interest at the Default Rate to the indebtedness secured by the Mortgages.  Borrower hereby pledges to Administrative Agent (on behalf of the Lenders) and grants to Administrative Agent (on behalf of the Lenders) a security interest in any and all monies now or hereafter deposited in such reserves and the account established by Administrative Age nt as additional security for the payment of the Loans and agrees to enter into an agreement with Administrative Agent and the bank where such account is established in order to perfect Administrative Agent’s security interest therein.  In making any payment from such reserves, Administrative Agent may do so according to any bill, statement or estimate or procured from the appropriate public office (with respect to Real Estate Taxes), 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 such charge.
