(b) Notwithstanding anything to
the contrary contained herein, if the casualty damage to the Leased Premises is such that in the reasonable opinion of a reputable general contractor retained by Landlord (which Landlord shall provide to Tenant within forty-five (45) days after the
date of the damage or destruction), such reconstruction or repair cannot be completed within two hundred seventy (270) days after the date of the damage or destruction (the “Repair Period”), Landlord or Tenant may, at its option, terminate this
Lease on notice to the other party within thirty (30) days after Landlord delivers to Tenant such general contractor’s opinion, and Tenant shall deliver vacant possession of the Leased Premises in accordance with the terms of this Lease.
(c) In addition, if this Lease

insurance coverages by reason of the mutual waivers contained in this Section.

by the negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord, its agents, employees or contractors, and subject to Section 7.02, Tenant will indemnify and save harmless Landlord against and from all liabilities, obligations, damages, penalties, claims,
costs, charges and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, which may be imposed upon, incurred by or asserted against Landlord or which involve Landlord directly or indirectly during the Term for: (i) any work or thing done in, on or about
the Leased Premises; (ii) any use, non-use, possession, occupation, condition, operation, maintenance or management of the Leased Premises; (iii) any negligence on the part of Tenant or any of its agents, contractors, servants, employees,
licensees, invitees, tenants or occupants; (iv) any injury or death to any person or damage to or loss of property occurring in, on or about the Leased Premises; and (v) any failure on the part of Tenant to perform or comply with any provisions of
this Lease (subject to applicable notice and cure periods). If any action or proceeding is brought against Landlord by reason of any claim described in this subparagraph (a), Tenant, upon notice from Landlord, will either defend such action or
proceeding with counsel approved by Landlord, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed, or satisfy the claim. If Landlord, without fault on its part, shall be made a party to any litigation commenced by or against Tenant, then
Tenant shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless Landlord therefrom and shall pay Landlord all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, which Landlord may sustain by reason thereof.
(b) Except to the extent caused
by the negligence or willful misconduct of Tenant, its agents, employees or contractors, and subject to Section 7.02, Landlord hereby indemnifies and holds Tenant harmless from and against any and all liabilities, obligations, damages, penalties,
claims, costs, charges and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, which may be imposed upon, incurred by or asserted against Tenant or which involve Tenant directly or indirectly arising from the negligence or willful misconduct of
Landlord or its agents, employees or contractors in or about the Project. If any action or proceeding is brought against Tenant by reason of any claim described in this subparagraph (b), Landlord, upon notice from Tenant, will either defend such
action or proceeding with counsel approved by Tenant, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed, or satisfy the claim. If Tenant, without fault on its part, shall be made a party to any litigation commenced by or against Landlord,
then Landlord shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless Tenant therefrom and shall pay Tenant all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, which Tenant may sustain by reason thereof.
(c) The provisions of this
Section shall survive the termination of this Lease.
(a) Tenant shall provide, at its
expense, and keep in force during the Term of this Lease, general liability insurance (currently referred to as commercial general liability) in a good and solvent insurance company or companies licensed to do business in the State in which the
Leased Premises is located, selected by Tenant, in the amount of at least five million dollars ($5,000,000) combined single limit for bodily injury and for property damage per occurrence with respect to the Leased Premises (which amount may be
satisfied through liability umbrella coverage). Such policy or policies shall include Landlord (and Landlord’s Lender pursuant to Section 10.02) as an additional insured. At the commencement of each Renewal Term, the limits of such liability
insurance shall be adjusted based on such then-industry standard liability insurance coverage limits as would be carried by a prudent owner of a comparable real estate project of similar size, age, and location.
(b) During the Term of this
Lease, Landlord (as part of Operating Costs) shall maintain:
(i) commercial general
liability insurance naming Tenant as an additional insured in amounts no less than that required of Tenant pursuant to subsection (a).
(ii) standard all risk
(currently referred to as “special form”) property insurance (or such other type of property insurance as may be generally obtained from time to time by prudent owners of comparable properties in the vicinity of the Leased Premises), for the
Improvements erected or caused to be erected, at any time, by Landlord on the Land in a minimum amount as required by the Leasehold Mortgagee (or if none, then in such replacement amount as would be obtained from time to time by prudent owners of
comparable properties in the vicinity of the Leased Premises). All proceeds payable at any time and from time to time by any insurance company under such policies shall be payable to such Leasehold Mortgagee, as the Leasehold Mortgage or other loan
documents pertaining to the Leasehold Mortgage (“Loan Documents”) may provide, or, if none, to Landlord (subject to Section 7.01). If any such proceeds are paid to such Leasehold Mortgagee, Landlord shall be entitled to receive the full amount
thereof in accordance with the terms of such Leasehold Mortgage or Loan Documents, and Tenant shall not be entitled to, and shall have no interest in, such proceeds or any part thereof. Any proceeds paid directly to Landlord shall be retained by
Landlord and Tenant shall not be entitled to, and shall have no interest in, such proceeds or any part thereof (except as otherwise expressly provided in Section 7.01(a)). Tenant shall, at Landlord’s cost and expense, cooperate with Landlord in all
reasonable respects in order to obtain the largest possible recovery and execute any and all consents and other instruments and take all other actions reasonably necessary or desirable in order to effectuate the same and to cause such proceeds to
be paid as hereinbefore provided, and Tenant shall not carry any insurance concurrent in coverage and contributing in the event of loss with any insurance required to be furnished by Landlord hereunder if the effect of such separate insurance would
be to reduce the protection or the payment to be made under Landlord’s insurance. Except for property insurance proceeds relating to alterations made by Tenant at its expense, Tenant agrees to pay any property insurance proceeds received by Tenant
in connection with any damage to the Leased Premises to Landlord immediately upon receipt thereof by Tenant and agrees that Tenant shall have no interest therein, except as otherwise expressly set forth in this Lease.
(c) Any insurance required to be
provided pursuant to this Lease may be provided by blanket insurance covering the Leased Premises and other locations of the insuring party and affiliates, provided such blanket insurance complies with all of the other requirements of this Lease
with respect to the insurance involved (and such blanket insurance is acceptable to any Leasehold Mortgagee).
(d) At all times during which
construction is being performed in connection with the Leased Premises, the party contracting for the construction shall maintain builder’s risk insurance with limits of coverage not less than those specified in subsection 7.04(b) above.
(e) Each party shall provide
Certificates of Insurance evidencing that it has procured the insurance required to be maintained hereunder. The Certificates will provide that the insurer will endeavor to give the other party at least thirty (30) days’ notice prior to
cancellation or reduction in coverage of such policies or any one of them (although each party will request that its insurers agree to delete the words “endeavor to” from such Certificates).
ARTICLE 8.0 CONDEMNATION
8.01 Condemnation. If the whole of the Leased Premises, or such portion thereof as will make the Leased Premises unusable for the purposes leased hereunder, shall be taken by any public
authority under the power of eminent domain or sold to any public authority under threat or in lieu of such taking, the Term shall cease as of the day possession or title shall be taken by such public authority, whichever is earlier (“Taking
Date”), whereupon the Rent shall be paid up to the Taking Date with a proportionate refund by Landlord of any Rent paid for a period subsequent to the Taking Date. If less than the whole of the Leased Premises, or less than such portion thereof as
will make the Leased Premises unusable for the purposes leased hereunder, shall be taken, the Term shall cease only as to the part so taken as of the Taking Date, and Tenant shall pay Rent up to the Taking Date, with appropriate credit by Landlord
(toward the next installment of Rent due from Tenant) of any Rent paid for a period subsequent to the Taking Date. Base Rent and other charges payable to Landlord shall be reduced in proportion to the amount of parking spaces in the Garage taken.
8.02 Award. All compensation awarded or paid upon a total or partial taking of the Leased Premises including the value of the leasehold estate created hereby shall belong to and be the
property of Landlord without any participation by Tenant; Tenant shall have no claim to any such award based on Tenant’s leasehold interest. However, nothing contained herein shall be construed to preclude Tenant, at its cost, from independently
prosecuting any claim directly against the condemning authority in such condemnation proceeding for damage to, or cost of removal of, stock, trade fixtures, furniture, and other personal property belonging to Tenant, improvements paid for by
Tenant, and moving and other relocation expenses.
8.03 Repairs. Upon receipt of the condemnation award, Landlord shall restore the remainder of the Leased Premises to an architectural whole and as near as reasonably possible to the
condition existing prior to the Taking Date.
ARTICLE 9.0 TRANSFERS
9.01 Landlord Transfers. Landlord shall have the right to sell,

Tenant Default (as hereinafter defined), Landlord will not terminate any Sublease of the Leased Premises, or disturb the possession or leasehold rights of the Sublessee thereunder, unless such Sublessee is in default under the provisions of the
Sublease beyond applicable notice and cure periods (if any). Landlord further agrees, subject to the provisions of the preceding sentence, to continue any such Sublease in full force and effect and, if requested by such Sublessee, to enter into a
direct lease between Landlord and such Sublessee. Upon request, Landlord shall enter into a non-disturbance agreement with such Sublessee whereby the Landlord will agree to not disturb such Lessee during the term of such Sublease in the event of a
termination of this Lease or the exercise of its rights and remedies under the Lease.
(b) Sale, Transfer or Assignment. Provided Tenant complies with Section 9.03, and provided that the transferee assumes in writing each of Tenant’s obligations arising

assignment or transfer.

provisiOns of Section 9.02, Tenant may not transfer this Lease to a Disqualified Person. For purposes hereof, a “Disqualified Person” means any person or entity (or affiliate thereof, or an entity controlled by a person or entity) that:

ARTICLE 10.0 LIENS
10.01 Mechanics Liens.
(a) In the event of the filing
of any construction lien against the Leased Premises as a result of any work performed by or on behalf of Tenant or a Sublessee, Tenant shall cause same to be contested, bonded or discharged within thirty (30) days after Tenant’s receipt of written
notice thereof. If Tenant shall fail to timely contest, bond around or discharge the same, Landlord shall have the option, but not the obligation, to pay the same and any amount so paid shall be payable by Tenant to Landlord on demand.
(b) Notwithstanding any
provision of this Lease to the contrary, Tenant shall not, under any circumstances, have the power to subject the interest of Landlord in the Leased Premises to any construction liens or liens of any other kind, nor shall any provision contained in
this Lease ever be construed as empowering Tenant to encumber or cause Landlord to encumber the title or interest of Landlord in the Leased Premises. All parties with whom Tenant may deal are hereby put on notice that Tenant has no power to subject
Landlord’s interest in the Leased Premises to any claim or lien of any kind or character and any persons dealing with Tenant must look solely to the credit of Tenant for payment and not to Landlord’s interest in the Leased Premises or otherwise.
The Memorandum of Lease described in Section 13.04 shall include this Section 10.01(b).
(c) In the event of the filing
of any construction lien against the Leased Premises as a result of any work performed by or on behalf of Landlord, Landlord shall cause same to be bonded or discharged within thirty (30) days after Landlord’s receipt of written notice thereof. If
Landlord shall fail to timely bond around or discharge the same, Tenant shall have the option, but not the obligation, to pay the same and any amount so paid shall be payable by Landlord to Tenant on demand. If Landlord does not pay such sums to
Tenant within thirty (30) days following receipt of Tenant’s demand therefor, Tenant shall be entitled to offset such sums against the Rent next becoming due under this Lease.
10.02 Mortgages against Reversionary Estate.
(a) Subject to the terms and
conditions hereof, Landlord may obtain mortgage financing (such financing and any refinancing thereof or new financing and any renewal or extension thereof being referred to as “Landlord’s Financing”) from a bona fide lender (“Landlord’s Lender”);
provided, however, that (i) Landlord’s Lender shall not be a Disqualified Person, and (ii) Landlord’s Lender shall execute a subordination, non-disturbance and attornment agreement (“SNDA”) in favor of Tenant in form and content reasonably
acceptable to Tenant and Landlord’s Lender. Tenant agrees that an acceptable form of SNDA is attached hereto as Exhibit “E.” Such form is not intended to be the only form that would be
acceptable to Tenant and/or deemed to be reasonable.
(b) The provisions of this
Section 10.02 will be included in the Memorandum of Lease described in Section 13.04.
10.03 Mortgages against Leasehold Estate.
(a) Tenant may, without the
consent of Landlord, execute, deliver and cause or permit to be recorded against the Leasehold Estate, one or more Leasehold Mortgages. Tenant or any Leasehold Mortgagee shall notify Landlord, in the manner hereinafter provided for the giving of
notice, of the execution of such Leasehold Mortgage and the name and place for service of notice upon such Leasehold Mortgagee. The terms of Exhibit
“F” hereto shall be applicable with respect to any Leasehold Mortgage. Upon such notification to Landlord that Tenant has entered,
or is about to enter, into a Leasehold Mortgage, Landlord hereby agrees for the benefit of such Leasehold Mortgagee, and within twenty (20) days after written request by Tenant, to execute and deliver to Tenant and Leasehold Mortgagee the
Recognition, Attornment and Assent to Leasehold Mortgage (“Recognition Agreement”) containing terms substantially identical to the terms set forth in Exhibit
“F” hereto. Landlord further agrees that it will comply with all of the covenants and obligations contained in Exhibit “F” and any such Recognition
(b) If a Leasehold Mortgagee
does not cure a Tenant Default (as hereinafter defined), such Leasehold Mortgagee shall be entitled to obtain a new Lease from Landlord on the same terms and conditions as this Lease, as provided in Exhibit “F”; and further, any and all improvements owned by Tenant prior to such termination (if any) shall automatically pass to, vest in and belong to such
Leasehold Mortgagee, and shall not become the property of Landlord unless and until the final expiration or sooner termination of this Lease not followed by a new Lease as provided in Exhibit “F” hereto.
(c) Notwithstanding anything to
the contrary herein provided, if Tenant or any successor in interest of Tenant shall be a Leasehold Mortgagee, it is specifically understood and agreed that there shall be absolutely no personal liability on the part of such Leasehold Mortgagee
with respect to any of the terms, covenants and conditions of this Lease, and Landlord shall look solely to the Leasehold Estate for the satisfaction of each and every remedy of Landlord in the event of any breach by such Leasehold Mortgagee as
Tenant of any of the terms, covenants and conditions of this Lease to be performed by Tenant, such exculpation of personal liability to be absolute and without any exception whatsoever (subject as aforesaid).
(d) If a Leasehold Mortgagee
requests reasonable modifications or clarifications to the Lease which do not adversely affect Landlord’s rights or obligations under this Lease in any material respect, then Landlord will cooperate with Tenant in order to execute reasonable
documentation in connection therewith.
(e) Any Leasehold Mortgage shall
encumber solely the Leasehold Estate and shall not encumber or be consolidated with any other lands owned or leased by Tenant (unless the Leasehold Mortgage contains a fixed release price applicable solely to the Leased Premises, which release
price is based on the value of the Leased Premises as if the Leasehold Mortgage encumbered solely the Leasehold Estate).
10.04 Landlord’s Lien. Landlord hereby waives and releases any
statutory, constitutional and/or contractual lien for rents against the assets or property of Tenant (other than judgment liens). Although such waiver and release is hereby deemed to be automatic and self-executing, Landlord agrees to execute and
deliver to Tenant within fifteen (15) business days following request therefor such waivers and confirmations as Tenant may request to evidence the foregoing waiver and release, in form and content reasonably acceptable to Landlord.
ARTICLE 11.0 DEFAULT AND REMEDIES
11.01 Default by Tenant.
(a) The following shall be
deemed to be events of default by Tenant under this Lease (each, a “Tenant Default”): (i) Tenant shall fail to pay when due any installment of Rent or any other payment required pursuant to this Lease within twenty (20) days after Tenant’s receipt
of written notice of nonpayment thereof (a “Monetary Default”); or (ii) Tenant shall fail to comply with any term, provision or covenant of this Lease, other than the payment of Rent, and the failure is not cured within thirty (30) days after
Tenant’s receipt of written notice thereof, or such longer period as may be reasonable under the circumstances so long as Tenant commences to cure within such thirty (30) day period and thereafter diligently prosecutes such cure to completion (a
“Non-Monetary Default”); or (iii) Tenant shall file a petition or be adjudged bankrupt or insolvent under any applicable federal or state bankruptcy or insolvency law or a receiver or trustee shall be appointed for all or substantially all of the
assets of Tenant or Tenant shall make a transfer in fraud of creditors or shall make an assignment for the benefit of creditors and same is not dismissed within ninety (90) days thereafter; or (iv) this Lease or the Tenant’s Leasehold Estate is
transferred in violation of the requirements of this Lease. Any permitted assignee or lender (including a Leasehold Mortgagee) may cure any Tenant Default hereunder.
(b) If Landlord shall claim that
Tenant Default exists, Landlord shall have the right, subject to the provisions of Exhibit “F” and any Recognition Agreement executed pursuant to the provisions of this Lease, to institute from time to time an action or actions (i) to recover damages (exclusive of consequential,
punitive, or special damages), (ii) for injunctive and/or other equitable relief, or (iii) only in the event of Monetary Default, or a Non-Monetary Default which has resulted or is reasonably likely to result in irreparable and material damage to
the Leased Premises, to recover possession of the Leased Premises and terminate this Lease. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord agrees that Tenant shall have thirty (30) days after commencement by Landlord of any proceedings to file an
appropriate pleading in the action initiated by Landlord to contest the claim of Tenant Default or to cure such Tenant Default; no action shall be taken by Landlord during such thirty (30) day period to regain possession of the Leased Premises from
Tenant or to terminate this Lease. If the Tenant Default is not cured, Landlord’s rights and Tenant’s obligations shall be resolved by the final determination made by the court in which Landlord’s proceedings were initiated. For purposes hereof, a
“final determination” shall occur when the judgment or order entered can be enforced by execution, issuance of a writ of restitution, judicial sale or specific enforcement and no such judgment or order shall be considered final for purposes hereof
during the pendency of a stay of execution in connection with an appeal. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if there is a Monetary Default which arises out of a dispute as to an amount owed or the amount of an offset, this Lease shall
not terminate if Tenant pays to Landlord the amount the court determines to be owed within the period of time permitted by law, or ten (10) days after such determination if no such grace period is permitted.
(c) Tenant shall have no
personal, corporate or entity liability under this Lease, and in the event of a Tenant Default, (i) the recourse of Landlord against Tenant with respect to any Tenant Default shall extend only to Tenant’s Leasehold Estate, and not to any other
assets of Tenant or any of its directors, officers, shareholders, employees, agents, constituent partners, members, beneficiaries, trustees or representatives; and (ii) except to the extent of Tenant’s interest in the Leasehold Estate (and the
proceeds therefrom), no personal liability or personal responsibility shall be asserted or enforceable against Tenant or any of its directors, officers, shareholders, employees, agents, constituent partners, members, beneficiaries, trustees or
representatives. The foregoing paragraph shall not be applicable to (A) Tenant’s liability under Section 4.02(b) of this Lease, (B) misappropriation of insurance or condemnation proceeds in contravention of this Lease, (C) conversion of Sublease
rentals and other income from the operation of the Leased Premises following a court order to deliver such amounts to Landlord, (D) willful failure to maintain the insurance coverages required of Tenant hereunder, and (E) a sale, transfer, or
assignment of this Lease and/or the Leased Premises in contravention of Article 9.0 hereof.
11.02 Default by Landlord. If Landlord fails to comply with any
obligation of Landlord contained in the Lease and such failure continues uncured for a period of thirty (30) days following written notice thereof from Tenant to Landlord, or such longer period as may be reasonable under the circumstances so long
as Landlord commences to cure within such thirty (30) day period and thereafter diligently prosecutes such cure to completion (a “Landlord Default”), then Tenant shall have the right to pursue any and all remedies permitted at law (exclusive of
consequential, punitive, or special damages) or in equity, including, without limitation, specific performance of Landlord’s obligations under this Lease; provided, however, that unless the default by Landlord renders the Leased Premises unusable
for the purposes leased hereunder, Tenant may not seek to terminate this Lease. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Lease, Landlord shall not have any personal liability for any of its obligations as landlord under this Lease except to
the extent of its interest in the Project (which interest includes, without limitation, the proceeds of insurance and condemnation). Tenant will not institute, seek or enforce any personal or deficiency judgment against Landlord or any of
Landlord’s officers, directors, shareholders or partners or their property, except the Project, which shall be available to satisfy any such judgment. If Tenant receives a final, nonappealable judgment for damages against Landlord as a result of an
uncured default by Landlord under this Lease, which is not satisfied within thirty (30) days after it becomes final and nonappealable, then Tenant will have the right to deduct the unpaid amount of such judgment (plus interest) against the Base
Rent and Tenant’s Share of Operating Costs to become due under this Lease until fully credited.
11.03 Rights to Cure. Each party shall have the right, but shall not
be required, to pay such sums or do any act which requires the expenditure of monies which may be necessary or appropriate by reason of the failure or neglect of the other party to perform any of the provisions of this Lease, if such failure or
neglect is not cured within the notice and cure period set forth herein. In the event of the exercise of any such right by Landlord, Tenant agrees to pay to Landlord forthwith upon demand all such sums, as an additional charge. In the event of the
exercise of such right by Tenant, Landlord agrees to pay to Tenant forthwith upon demand all such sums.
11.04 Waiver. Failure of Landlord or Tenant to declare an event of default immediately upon its occurrence, or delay in taking any action in connection with an
event of default, shall not constitute a waiver of the default, but the nondefaulting party shall have the right to declare the default at any time and take such action as is lawful or authorized under this Lease. Pursuit of any one or more of the
remedies set forth in this Article 11.0 above shall not preclude the simultaneous or later pursuit of any one or more of the other remedies provided above or elsewhere in this Lease or provided by law or in equity, nor shall pursuit of any remedy
constitute forfeiture or waiver of any Rent or damages accruing to the nondefaulting party by reason of the violation of any of the terms, provisions or covenants of this Lease. Failure by the nondefaulting party to enforce one or more of the
remedies provided upon an event of default shall not be deemed or construed to constitute a waiver of the default or of any other violation or breach of any of the terms, provisions and covenants contained in this Lease.
11.05 Cumulative Remedies. Each right and remedy of Landlord or Tenant
provided for in this Lease shall be cumulative and shall be in addition to every other right or remedy provided for in this Lease and the exercise or beginning of the exercise by Landlord or Tenant of any one or more of the rights or remedies
provided for in this Lease shall not preclude Landlord or Tenant from exercising any other right or remedies provided for in this Lease.
11.06 Attorney’s Fees. If at any time during the term of this Lease
either Landlord or Tenant shall institute any action or proceeding against the other relating to the provisions of this Lease or any default hereunder, then the nonprevailing party in such action or proceeding agrees to reimburse the prevailing
party for the reasonable expenses for attorneys’ fees, paralegal fees and disbursements incurred therein by the prevailing party. Such reimbursement shall include all legal expenses incurred prior to trial, at trial and at all levels of appeal and
post judgment proceedings and in any bankruptcy proceedings.
11.07 Bankruptcy. Should Tenant become a debtor under Chapter 7 of the
Bankruptcy Code (“Code”) or a petition for reorganization or adjustment of debts is filed concerning Tenant under Chapters 11 or 13 of the Code, or a proceeding is filed under Chapter 7 and is transferred to Chapters 11 or 13, any trustee or
Tenant, as debtor and as debtor-in-possession, may not elect to assume this Lease unless, at the time of such assumption, the trustee or Tenant has cured or provided Landlord “Adequate Assurance” of the curing of all defaults. “Adequate Assurance”
shall mean that the trustee or Tenant has and will continue to have sufficient assets (including assets based on rents from Sublessees) after the payment of all secured obligations and administrative expenses to fulfill the obligations of Tenant
under this Lease.
ARTICLE 12.0 COMMISSIONS
12.01 Real Estate Brokerage. Each of Tenant and Landlord represents to
the other that it has not engaged any real estate broker in connection with this transaction, and Tenant and Landlord shall be responsible for the payment of any commissions becoming due to any real estate broker, finder or agent engaged by or
claiming by, through or under such party as applicable in connection with this transaction, and hereby agrees to indemnify and hold the other harmless :from any loss, liability, damage, cost or expense (including reasonable attorneys’ fees)

expiration or earlier termination of the then-current Term of this Lease.
