Buyer has the right, power and authority to execute, deliver and perform this Agreement. The execution, delivery and performance by Buyer of its obligations under this Agreement has been duly authorized by all necessary limited liability company action, and does not violate Buyer's articles of organization or operating agreement, as the same may be amended and supplemented, nor any applicable provision of law, nor does it constitute a material breach of, default under or require any consent under any agreement, instrument or document to which Buyer is now a party or by which it is now or may become bound.

All certifications and statements contained in the Economic Disclosure Statements submitted to the City by Buyer (and any legal entity holding an interest in Buyer) are true, accurate and complete as of the date of certification and the closing date.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, Seller shall have no obligation in the event of casualty or other loss or destruction to restore the Property to its prior condition.
Section 13. Title and Survey.
(a) Buyer shall be solely responsible for and shall pay all costs associated with obtaining a title commitment for an owner's policy of title insurance (the "Commitment") for the Premises issued by the Title Company (including all search, continuation and later-date fees), and obtaining title insurance, extended coverage or any other endorsements it deems necessary (the "Title Policy"). Buyer shall be responsible for obtaining any utility letters or other documents needed to obtain extended coverage. Buyer may also, at its expense, obtain a current survey of the Premises within twenty (20) days after the Effective Date. Within five (5) business days after Buyer receives the survey and any new or updated title commitment (which Buyer may request from the Title Company at any time and from time to time in its sole discretion), Buyer shall furnish a copy of the same to Seller. Within thirty (30) days after the Effective Date, Buyer shall deliver notice to Seller of any objectionable title or survey matter or defect disclosed on the survey or the Commitment, and within five (5) business days after

|1010|
receipt of any updated title commitment, Buyer shall deliver notice to Seller of any objectionable title or survey matter or defect not previously disclosed on any earlier title commitment and disclosed on such updated title commitment (a "Title Objection Notice"). With respect to previously undisclosed exceptions identified on an updated title commitment issued less than thirty (30) days prior to the closing, the closing shall be extended for up to thirty (30) days as necessary to allow Buyer and Seller to exercise their rights and remedies provided in this subsection (a) and in subsection (b) below. Any objections to matters on the title commitment and survey not made within the time periods set forth herein shall be deemed to be waived by Buyer, and any exceptions not objected to by Buyer as provided above shall be permitted exceptions hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing or any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary, however, Seller shall have the obligation to remove liens of a definite and ascertainable amount not caused by Buyer which can removed by the payment or deposit of a sum of money at closing up to the amounts set forth in the Commitment (together with interest and penalties, if any, on delinquent taxes); provided, however, the Commissioner of the Department of Housing and Economic Development shall have the authority to pay additional amounts that may be identified in any updated or new title commitment. In lieu of making such payments or deposits, Seller may insure over such liens.
No later than fifteen (15) days after receipt of a Title Objection Notice, Seller shall notify Buyer in writing as to which objections set forth in the Title Objection Notice Seller has elected to cure, if any. If Seller fails to deliver such a notice with respect to any objection, elects not to cure any objection, or is unable to cure any objection in a manner satisfactory to Buyer prior to the closing date (each, an "Uncured Objection"), then Buyer may elect to either: (i) proceed to closing and take title "as is" without reduction of the Purchase Price, in which event any unacceptable conditions and exceptions shall be deemed permitted exceptions hereunder, or (ii) terminate this Agreement by notice to Seller. Further, if Seller notifies Buyer that Seller intends to attempt to cure the objections by the closing date but Seller fails to cure such objections by such date, then Buyer shall be entitled to exercise its option under subsection 13(b)(i) or (ii) above, provided that the option under subsection 13(b)(ii) above shall be exercised prior to or on the closing date (as may be extended pursuant to subsection (a) above). Upon any termination of this Agreement pursuant to this Section 13(b), all Earnest Money paid by Buyer shall be refunded to Buyer, and this Agreement shall be deemed null and void and of no further force or effect with Buyer and Seller having no further rights, obligations or liabilities hereunder except as otherwise set forth herein.

Buyer's obligation to proceed to closing shall be subject to Buyer's receipt in the Zoning Contingency Period of such approvals and entitlements in a form satisfactory to Buyer in its sole and absolute discretion.


|1010|

Buyer shall have the right to receive a refund of the Earnest Money and terminate this Agreement upon notice given to Seller at any time prior to the expiration of the Zoning Contingency Period if Buyer determines in its sole discretion that it will not obtain, prior to the expiration of the Zoning Contingency Period, all zoning and land use approvals necessary and appropriate for Buyer's Intended Use.

Buyer shall have 60 days after the Effective Date (the "Due Diligence Period") to inspect all aspects of the Property, including, without limitation, all improvements, systems, components, conditions, reports, environmental conditions, contracts and other information. Buyer shall, in its sole discretion, and for any reason or no reason, have the right to receive a refund of all of the Earnest Money and terminate this Agreement upon notice given to Seller at any time prior to the expiration of the Due Diligence Period.

Buyer has conducted, or will conduct prior to the expiration of the Due Diligence Period, its own property investigation to the extent Buyer deems necessary or appropriate. Buyer, at Buyer's sole cost, shall also have the right to make such inspections, investigations and tests as Buyer may elect to make or obtain upon not less than three (3) business days' prior notice to Robert McKenna in the Department of Housing and Economic Development (which notice may be by telephone or e-mail during normal business hours) and subject to Seller's right to have a representative present. Any on-site inspections and examinations of the Premises shall be done during normal business hours. Prior to entering the Property, Buyer shall provide proof of insurance as required by Exhibit B of this Agreement. Buyer shall promptly repair any damage to the Premises caused by any actions of Buyer or its agents or contractors and restore the Premises to the condition which existed immediately prior to such activity. Buyer shall indemnify, defend (through an attorney reasonably acceptable to Seller) and hold harmless Seller and Seller's officers, employees, agents and representatives from any claim for liabilities, costs, expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees actually incurred), damages, injuries, liens or other encumbrances arising out of or resulting from the inspection of the Premises by Buyer or its agents or contractors. The foregoing indemnity shall not include pre-existing conditions merely discovered and not exacerbated by Buyer, and any conditions caused by the willful misconduct of Seller. This Section 15 shall survive the closing or any termination of this Agreement (regardless of the reason for such termination).

Section 17. Brokerage Commissions. Seller and Buyer represent and warrant to each other that there are no real estate sales or brokerage commissions or like commissions that are or may be due in connection with this transaction. Each party shall indemnify, defend (with legal counsel reasonably acceptable to the other party) and hold harmless the other party for, from and against any claims by third parties made by or through the acts of such party, for

|1010|
real estate or brokerage commissions, or a finder's fee, in connection with the transactions provided herein, and all costs and expenses incurred by the other party in connection therewith including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys' fees.
Section 18. Confidentiality. Buyer and Seller shall keep confidential and not make any public announcement or disclose to any person (a) the existence or any terms of this Agreement, (b) any information disclosed by Buyer's inspections of the Property, or in Seller's due diligence materials or Buyer's due diligence reports, and (c) any other documents, materials, data or other information with respect to the Property which is not generally known to the public (the "Confidential Information"). Notwithstanding the foregoing, Buyer and Seller may disclose any Confidential Information (a) to the extent such information is already known by Buyer as of the Effective Date; (b) to the extent required by court order or under applicable local, state or federal law, including, without limitation, the Illinois Freedom of Information Act (5 ILCS 140), the Illinois Open Meetings Act (5 ILCS 120) and any notice, publication or hearing requirements under the Municipal Code of the City of Chicago, or (c) to any person on a "need-to-know" basis, such as their respective directors, officers, partners, members, employees, attorneys, accountants, engineers, surveyors, consultants, lenders (if any), investors, managers, franchisors and such other persons whose assistance is required to consummate the transactions contemplated in this Agreement; provided, however, that Seller or Buyer (as the case may be) shall (x) advise such person of the confidential nature of such Confidential Information, and (y) use commercially reasonable efforts to cause such person to maintain the confidentiality of such information.
Section 19. Non-Foreign Person. Seller represents and warrants that it is not a foreign person as defined in Section 1445 ofthe Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, and is therefore exempt from the withholding requirements of said Section. At closing, if required by the Title Company to issue the Title Policy, Seller shall furnish to Buyer at the closing the non-foreign certification provided for in said Section. Seller agrees to indemnify Buyer from any liability, loss, cost and expense, including reasonable attorney's fees and expenses, which result from any inaccuracy in representation and warranty set forth above or in the said non-foreign,certification.

Section 20. Days and Time.
