The Loans shall be evidenced by a promissory note of Borrower in substantially the form of Exhibit “A” hereto (the “Note”), dated as of the Closing Date and completed with appropriate insertions. The Note shall be payable to the order of Lender in the principal face amount of $10,962,000.00, plus such additional principal from time to time outstanding under the Loan Documents, plus interest accrued thereon, as set forth below. Borrower irrevocably authorizes Lender to make or cause to be made, at or about the time of the Drawdown Date of any Loan or at or about the time of receipt of any payment of principal thereof, an appropriate notation on Lender’s Record reflecting the making of such Loan or (as the case may be) the receipt of such payment. The outstanding amount of the Loans set forth on Lender’s Record shall be prima facie evidence of the principal amount thereof owing and unpaid to Lender, but the failure to record, or any error in so recording, any such amount on Lender’s Record shall not limit or otherwise affect the obligations of Borrower hereunder or under the Note to make payments of principal of or interest on the Note when due.
§2.3    Interest on Loans. Commencing on the Drawdown Date thereof until the Maturity Date or an Event of Default as hereinafter provided, interest shall accrue on the principal amount of each Loan Outstanding from time to time at the per annum rate equal to eight percent (8%). The Borrower promises to pay interest in arrears on the Loan on each Interest Payment Date.
§2.4    Requests for Loans. The Borrower (i) shall notify Lender of a potential request for a Loan as soon as possible prior to the Borrower’s proposed Drawdown Date, and (ii) shall give to Lender a written request for each Loan requested hereunder in a form reasonably acceptable to Lender (or telephonic notice confirmed in writing in such form (a “Loan Request”) no less than three (3) Business Days prior to the proposed Drawdown Date (provided, however, such three (3) Business Days prior notice shall not be required with respect to the Loan funded on the Closing Date). Each such Loan Request shall specify with respect to the requested Loan the proposed principal amount and Drawdown Date. Each such Loan Request shall also contain (i) a statement as to the purpose for which such advance shall be or has been used (which purpose shall be in accordance with the terms of §2.6), (ii) a certification by Borrower containing an itemized statement of Project Costs actually incurred and paid by Borrower for which such Loan Request is requested, (iii) a certification by the Borrower and the Guarantors that the Borrower and Guarantors are and will be in compliance with all covenants under the Loan Documents after giving effect to the making of such Loan, (iv) the items required pursuant to §11 of this Agreement and (v) such other information, documents and certificates as Lender may reasonably request, including, without limitation, lien waivers, invoices and architects and contractors certifications and such other disbursement, oversight, inspection and monitoring requirements and controls which are customary for construction loans for similar size projects and for similar type properties in similar geographic areas. Lender shall have the right, at Borrower’s sole cost and expense, to retain a Construction Inspector to conduct such oversight, inspection, and monitoring requirements and controls. Except as provided in this §2.4, each such Loan Request shall be irrevocable and binding on the Borrower

-14-


and shall obligate the Borrower to accept the Loan requested from the Lender on the proposed Drawdown Date. The Borrower may without cost or penalty revoke a Loan Request by delivering notice thereof to Lender no later than three (3) Business Days prior to the Drawdown Date. Borrower shall not submit more than one (1) Loan Request per month.
§2.5    Funds for Loans. Upon receipt of the documents required by §10 and §11 and the satisfaction of the other conditions set forth therein, to the extent applicable, Lender will make available to the Borrower the aggregate amount of the Loan set forth in an applicable Loan Request by wire transfer.
§2.6    Use of Proceeds; Amount of Advances. Borrower will use, or cause Owner to use, the proceeds of the Loans only to pay Project Costs in accordance with the Project Budget. In no event shall Lender be obligated to advance more than the Maximum Commitment, or if less, the total Project Costs actually incurred by the Borrower. In no event shall any Loan for Hard Costs of constructing the Project exceed an amount equal to the sum of (a) the total value of the labor, materials, fixtures, machinery and equipment completed, approved and incorporated into the Project prior to the date of the Loan Request for such Loan, minus (b) the total amount of any Loans previously made by Lender for such Hard Costs. With respect to any other Hard Costs and all Soft Costs, in no event shall any Loan exceed an amount equal to the amount of such Hard Costs and Soft Costs approved by Lender, incurred by the Borrower prior to the date of the Loan Request for such Loan, and theretofore paid or to be paid with the proceeds of such Loan, less the total amount of any Loans previously made by Lender for such Hard Costs and Soft Costs.
§2.7    Project Costs. Borrower shall pay or cause Owner to pay all Project Costs as they become due and owing.
§2.8    Project Budget. The Project Budget attached as Exhibit “C” and any modifications to the Project Budget which are made in compliance with the provisions of this Agreement shows and will show, by category and line items, all of the Project Costs as presently determined or estimated. Except as set forth in Section 9.2 below, the Lender shall not be required to disburse for any category or line item more than the amount specified in the Project Budget.
§2.9    Modifications to Project Budget. It is expected that the Project Budget may be modified from time to time as Borrower, Owner or Lender determine that actual or anticipated Project Costs have changed. All references in this Agreement to the “Project Budget” shall mean the same as modified from time to time in compliance with this Section and Section 9.2. Borrower will inform Lender promptly after Borrower or Owner determines that any item of Project Costs will exceed the amount shown for such item on the Project Budget and propose for Lender’s prior written approval, a reallocation of any of the line items or contingency line items to cover any such shortfall. Except as expressly permitted in Section 9.2 below, all modifications of the Project Budget must be approved by Lender.
§2.10    Disbursements to Borrower or Owner from Project Budget. Borrower confirms that the Project Budget does not and will not in the future contain any line items which are payable to Borrower, Owner or any Guarantor or any of their respective Affiliates other than the Approved Affiliate Fees, provided, however, that Borrower, Owner, Guarantor or any of the their respective

-15-


Affiliates may receive reimbursement of expenses previously paid or in the future paid to third parties by such party so long as such expenses are third party Project Costs that are contemplated as part of individual line items in the Project Budget and the payment thereof is reflected by an appropriate notation in Borrower’s or Owner’s records pertaining to the Project Budget.
§2.11    Advances Do Not Constitute a Waiver. No Loan made by Lender shall constitute a waiver of any of the conditions to Lender’s obligation to make further Loans nor, in the event the Borrower fails to satisfy any such condition, shall any such Loan have the effect of precluding Lender from thereafter declaring such failure to satisfy a condition to be an Event of Default.
§2.12    Quality of Work. No Loan shall be required to be advanced by Lender unless all work done at the date the Loan Request for such Loan is submitted is done in a good and workmanlike manner and without defects, as may be confirmed by the report of the Construction Inspector if requested by Lender. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a portion of the work for which payment is included within a Loan Request has not been performed in a good and workmanlike manner and without defects as determined by such Construction Inspector or Lender (“Defective Work”), then the amount to be advanced pursuant to such Loan Request shall be reduced by the portion thereof attributable to the Defective Work provided that all other conditions to the making of a Loan have been satisfied. No Loan shall be required to be advanced by Lender upon a Loan Request with respect to such Defective Work until such Defective Work has been corrected and brought into full compliance with the requirements of this Agreement. No Loan shall be made upon any Loan Request if, upon the date of submittal thereof, any Defective Work has remained uncorrected for a period of more than thirty (30) days, unless correction of such Defective Work is under way and progressing reasonably satisfactorily to Lender and the Construction Inspector.
§2.13    Contingency Reserve. The amount allocated as “contingency” or “contingency reserve” in the Project Budget will only be disbursed upon the prior approval of Lender, such approval not to be unreasonably conditioned, withheld or delayed. The disbursement of a portion of such “contingency reserve” shall in no way prejudice Lender from withholding disbursement of any further portion of the “contingency reserve”, provided, however, that in the event such “contingency” line item may have increased from the amount set forth in the original Project Budget, due to savings reallocated to such “contingency” line item, then Borrower may receive disbursement from such “contingency” line item without Lender’s approval (subject, however, to satisfaction of all other conditions to the making of a Loan set forth in this Agreement), so long as the amount remaining undisbursed from such “contingency” line item remains greater than amount of such “contingency” line item as set forth in the original Project Budget. The disbursement of a portion of such “contingency reserve” shall in no way prejudice Lender from withholding disbursement of any further portion of the “contingency reserve”.
§2.14    Insufficiency of Loan Proceeds. The Borrower will deposit funds with Lender (the “Required Equity Funds”) as follows: If at any time prior to Mortgage Lender commencing to make advances under the Mortgage Loan (other than any advance made on the Closing Date), Lender shall in its sole discretion determine that the remaining undisbursed portion of the Loan, and any undisbursed portion of the Mortgage Loan, and any other sums previously deposited by the Borrower with Lender in connection with the Loan, is or will be insufficient to fully complete and equip the

-16-


Project (including all tenant improvements to be completed by the Borrower, with respect to both leased or unleased space) in accordance with the Plans, to operate and carry the Project after completion of the Project until payment in full of the Loan by the Borrower, to pay all other Project Costs, to pay all interest accrued or to accrue on the Loan during the term of the Loan from and after the date hereof, and to pay all other sums due or to become due under the Loan Documents and the Mortgage Loan Documents (or as to any budget category or line item in the Project Budget, if the undisbursed funds for such category or line item are or will be insufficient to fully pay for the costs attributed to such budget category or line item), regardless of how such condition may be caused, the Borrower will, within twenty-one (21) days after written notice of such determination from Lender, deposit with Lender such sums of money in cash as Lender may require, in an amount sufficient to remedy the condition described in such notice, and sufficient to pay any liens for labor, equipment and materials alleged to be due and payable at that time in connection with the Project, and, at Lender’s option, no further Loans shall be made by Lender until the provisions of this §2.14 have been fully complied with. All such deposited sums shall stand as additional security for the obligations and shall be disbursed by Lender in the same manner as Loans under this Agreement before any further Loan advances of proceeds shall be made. Lender shall have no obligation to pay the Borrower any interest with respect to such deposited funds. In the event that Mortgage Lender requires such Required Equity Funds to be deposited with Mortgage Lender, then such Required Equity Funds shall be deposited with Mortgage Lender instead of with Lender.
§2.15    No Liability for Failure to Fund. Borrower acknowledges and agrees that in no event whatsoever shall any member, manager or other direct or indirect owner of an interest in Lender have any liability whatsoever for any failure of Lender to fund any portion of the Loans or any other amounts under this Agreement or any other Loan Document.
§2.16    Project Savings. In the event that the actual aggregate Project Costs for completion of the Project are less than the line item amounts set forth in the Project Budget (for purposes of the foregoing, the parties acknowledge that the line items set forth in the Schedule of Values attached as an exhibit to the Construction Contract shall be used in lieu of the “Hard Cost” line item in the Project Budget and that any “savings” owed to the Developer shall not be deemed Project Costs) (“Cost Savings”), (a) neither Owner nor Borrower shall request a draw from Mortgage Lender or Lender for any portion of such Cost Savings without Lender’s prior written consent; and (b) except as provided in the following sentence, Owner shall not pay (and Developers shall not be entitled to make any claim or demand against Owner for) such Cost Savings out of cash flow from the Project without Lender’s prior written consent. So long as there is no existing Default, Cost Savings shall be distributable by Borrower and/or payable to Developers upon the earlier to occur of (i) repayment in full of the Obligations, and (ii) completion of the Completion Obligations (as defined in that certain Unconditional Guaranty of Completion dated as of even date herewith by Guarantors in favor of Lender, as modified and amended from time to time), and occupancy of the Project of at least fifty percent (50%) by tenants under Leases with average rents of at least $1,023 per unit. For avoidance of doubt, Lender and Borrower acknowledge and agree that the Construction Contract is a lump sum contract and that consequently payment of the Contract Sum thereunder is payable to General Contractor regardless of the actual Project Costs incurred pursuant thereto and that for purposes of this Section 2.16, no Cost Savings will be attributable to the Construction Contract or payable to the General Contractor.

-17-


§3.    REPAYMENT OF THE LOAN.
§3.1    Stated Maturity. Borrower unconditionally promises to pay on the Maturity Date, and there shall become absolutely due and payable on the Maturity Date, all of the Loan outstanding on such date, together with any and all accrued and unpaid interest and charges thereon.
§3.2    Mandatory Prepayments.
(a)    Borrower agrees that upon the occurrence of any refinance of the Mortgage Loan, at Lender’s option in its sole and absolute discretion, all of the Obligations outstanding on such date, together with any and all accrued but unpaid interest thereon and Exit Fees shall become absolutely due and payable.
(b)    If at any time there shall occur, whether voluntarily, involuntarily or by operation of law, a sale, transfer, assignment, conveyance, option or other disposition of, or any mortgage, hypothecation, encumbrance, financing or refinancing of (i) all or any portion of the Collateral Property, except for Permitted Liens; or (ii) any of the other Collateral, or (iii) any interest of Borrower in Owner, all of the Obligations outstanding on such date, together with any and all accrued but unpaid interest thereon and all applicable Exit Fees shall become absolutely due and payable.
§3.3    Optional Prepayments. Subject to §3.4 and §3.5 below, Borrower shall have the right to prepay the outstanding amount of the Loan, as a whole but not in part, at any time.
§3.4    Partial Prepayments. Partial prepayments of the Loan shall not be permitted hereunder without Lender’s prior written consent.
§3.5    Exit Fees. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, upon the occurrence of (a) a sale of the Project to, or refinancing with, a third party, (b) any other repayment of the Loan, or (c) the Maturity Date (an “Exit Fee Event”), Borrower shall pay to Lender an exit fee equal to: (i) six percent (6%) cumulative, compounded interest, from the Closing Date through the date of such Exit Fee Event, on any funded portion of the $10,962,000.00 Loan amount in the event such Exit Fee Event occurs prior to July 1, 2016, or (ii) six percent (6%) cumulative, non-compounded interest, from the Closing Date through the date of such Exit Fee Event on any funded portion of the $10,962,000.00 Loan amount in the event such Exit Fee Event occurs on or after July 1, 2016 (such fee being referred to herein as the “Exit Fee”). In connection with the obligation to pay the Exit Fee, Lender acknowledges and agrees that so long as such Exit Fee Event occurs on or before May 1, 2018, Developers and General Contractor shall first be entitled to receive any remaining unpaid Development Fee and Construction Fee out of the proceeds of such Exit Fee Event prior to Lender receiving such Exit Fee. No such Exit Fee will be required to be paid to Lender if Lender or a wholly owned direct or indirect subsidiary of Lender acquires the Project any time during the term of the Loan.
§3.6    Effect of Prepayments. Amounts of the Loan prepaid under §3.2 or §3.3 prior to the Maturity Date may not be reborrowed. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all payments shall first be applied to accrued but unpaid interest and then to principal as provided above.

-18-


§3.7    Extension of Maturity Date.
(a)    Provided that no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, the Borrower shall have the following two options, to extend the Maturity Date: an option to extend for six (6) months to May 1, 2017, followed by an option to extend for twelve (12) months to May 1, 2018, upon Lender’s receipt of written notice from Borrower of Borrower’s request to extend the Maturity Date (an “Extension Request”). Each such Extension Request shall be delivered to Lender not more than ninety (90) days and not less than thirty (30) days prior to the then scheduled Maturity Date. The request by the Borrower for extension of the Maturity Date shall constitute a representation and warranty by the Borrower that all of the conditions set forth in this Section 3.7 shall have been satisfied on the date of such request.
(b)    Such extension of the Maturity Date shall be subject to the satisfaction of the following conditions precedent on the then effective Maturity Date (without regard to such Extension Request):
(i)    No Default. On the date the Extension Request is given and on the Maturity Date (as determined without regard to such extension) there shall exist no Default or Event of Default.
(ii)    Representations and Warranties. The representations and warranties made by the Borrower and the Guarantors in the Loan Documents or otherwise made by or on behalf of such Persons in connection therewith or after the date thereof shall have been true and correct in all material respects when made and shall also be true and correct in all material respects on the Maturity Date (as determined without regard to such extension) other than for changes in the ordinary course of business permitted by this Agreement that have not had any materially adverse affect on the business of any of such person.
(iii)    Extension of Mortgage Loan Maturity Date. The then effective maturity date of the Mortgage Loan shall have been extended to the same date as the extended Maturity Date hereunder.
§4.    CERTAIN GENERAL PROVISIONS.
§4.1    [Intentionally Omitted].
§4.2    Lender Fees. To induce Lender to enter into this Agreement and to extend to Borrower the Loans, Borrower shall pay to Lender on the date hereof a loan fee in the amount of $219,240.00 (less $94,432.94) which was previously paid to Lender), which fee when paid shall be fully earned and non-refundable under any circumstances.
§4.3    Funds for Payments.
(a)    All payments of principal, interest, commitment fees, closing fees and any other amounts due hereunder or under any of the other Loan Documents shall be made to Lender at a bank designated by Lender by certified check, wire transfer or other means approved by Lender,

-19-


not later than 3:00 p.m. (Atlanta time) on the day when due, in each case in lawful money of the United States in immediately available funds.
(b)    All payments by Borrower hereunder and under any of the other Loan Documents shall be made without setoff or counterclaim and free and clear of and without deduction for any taxes, levies, imposts, duties, charges, fees, deductions, withholdings, compulsory loans, restrictions or conditions of any nature now or hereafter imposed or levied by any jurisdiction or any political subdivision thereof or taxing or other authority therein unless Borrower is compelled by law to make such deduction or withholding. If any such obligation is imposed upon Borrower with respect to any amount payable by it hereunder or under any of the other Loan Documents, Borrower will pay to Lender on the date on which such amount is due and payable hereunder or under such other Loan Document, such additional amount in Dollars as shall be necessary to enable Lender to receive the same net amount which Lender would have received on such due date had no such obligation been imposed upon Borrower. Borrower will deliver promptly to Lender certificates or other valid vouchers for all taxes or other charges deducted from or paid with respect to payments made by Borrower hereunder or under such other Loan Document.
§4.4    Computations. All computations of interest on the Loan and of other fees to the extent applicable shall be based on a 360‑day year and paid for the actual number of days elapsed, including the first date of the applicable period to but not including the date of repayment. Whenever a payment hereunder or under any of the other Loan Documents becomes due on a day that is not a Business Day, the due date for such payment shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day, and interest shall accrue during such extension. The outstanding amount of the Loan as reflected on the Record of Lender from time to time shall be considered prima facie evidence of such amount.
§4.5    [Intentionally Omitted].
§4.6    [Intentionally Omitted].
§4.7    [Intentionally Omitted].
§4.8    [Intentionally Omitted].
§4.9    [Intentionally Omitted].
§4.10    Indemnity of Borrower. Borrower agrees to indemnify Lender and to hold Lender harmless from and against any loss, cost or expense that Lender may sustain or incur as a consequence of default by Borrower in making the payments or performing its obligations under §4.11.
§4.11    Interest on Overdue Amounts; Late Charge. Following the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default, and regardless of whether or not Lender shall have accelerated the maturity of the Loan, the Loan shall bear interest payable on demand at a rate per annum equal to four percent (4.0%) above the rate that would otherwise be applicable at such time (the “Default Rate”) until such amount shall be paid in full (after as well as before judgment) or if such rate shall exceed the maximum rate permitted by law, then at the maximum rate permitted by law. In addition, Borrower shall pay a late charge equal to five percent (5%) of any amount of

-20-


interest and/or principal payable on the Loan or any other amounts payable hereunder or under the Loan Documents, which is not paid by Borrower within ten (10) days of the date when due (such late charge being applicable only to the amounts not paid within ten (10) days of the date when due). Borrowers acknowledge that it would be extremely difficult or impracticable to determine Lenders’ actual damages resulting from any late payment, Event of Default or prepayment, and the late charges, Default Rate and prepayment fees described in this Agreement are reasonable estimates of those damages and do not constitute a penalty.
§4.12    Certificate. A certificate setting forth any amounts payable pursuant to §4.10 or §4.11, and an explanation and calculation of such amounts which are due, submitted by Lender to Borrower, shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error.
§4.13    Limitation on Interest. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement or the other Loan Documents to the contrary, all agreements between Borrower and Lender, whether now existing or hereafter arising and whether written or oral, are hereby limited so that in no contingency, whether by reason of acceleration of the maturity of any of the Obligations or otherwise, shall the interest contracted for, charged or received by Lender exceed the maximum amount permissible under applicable law. If, from any circumstance whatsoever, interest would otherwise be payable to Lender in excess of the maximum lawful amount, the interest payable to Lender shall be reduced to the maximum amount permitted under applicable law; and if from any circumstance Lender shall ever receive anything of value deemed interest by applicable law in excess of the maximum lawful amount, an amount equal to any excessive interest shall be applied to the reduction of the principal balance of the Obligations and to the payment of interest or, if such excessive interest exceeds the unpaid balance of principal of the Obligations, such excess shall be refunded to Borrower. All interest paid or agreed to be paid to Lender shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, be amortized, prorated, allocated and spread throughout the full period until payment in full of the principal of the Obligations (including the period of any renewal or extension thereof) so that the interest thereon for such full period shall not exceed the maximum amount permitted by applicable law. This section shall control all agreements between Borrower and Lender.
§5.    COLLATERAL SECURITY AND GUARANTY.
§5.1    Collateral. The Obligations of Borrower shall be secured by (i) a perfected first priority lien or security title for the benefit of Lender in the Collateral, (ii) the Indemnity Agreement, and (iii) such additional collateral from Borrower or other Persons, if any, as Lender from time to time may accept as security for the Obligations. Certain of the Obligations shall also be guaranteed pursuant to the terms of the Guaranty.
§5.2    Release of Collateral. Upon termination of this Agreement and the payment in full of all of the Obligations, Lender shall release the Collateral and shall execute such instruments of release as Borrower and its counsel may reasonably request.
§6.    REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES.

§9.2    Project Changes. Borrower must obtain Lender’s prior written approval of (v) any proposed increase in the Project Budget, (w) any allocation of contingency funds or savings to other line items within the Project Budget, (x) any proposed changes in the work or materials or Plans, (y) any proposed changes to the Construction Contract, the Design Professional’s Contract or the Civil Engineer’s Contract, or to any subcontract or to any other construction or design related contract or (z) any new or additional contract related to the development, construction or design of the Project (each such instance in (v), (w), (x), (y) or (z), a “Project Change”), which Project Change would have the effect of (i) an increase in any line in the Project Budget by more than $50,000.00, or (ii) changing in a material way the Construction Finish Standards, or (iii) changing in a material way the overall aesthetic appearance of the Project or any significant services or amenities to be provided in connection with the Project, or (iv) diminishing the overall quality, functionality or marketability of the Project (each case (i) through (iv), a “Material Project Change”).

Borrower shall, and shall cause Owner to, prosecute development and construction of the Project with good faith and diligence in compliance with the Construction Schedule. Borrower’s or Owner’s failure to proceed diligently and (subject to Permitted Delay) make regular progress toward completion of the Project, as determined by Lender acting reasonably, and/or Borrower’s or Owner’s failure to meet (subject to Permitted Delay) any of the other deadlines set forth in this Section 9.3, shall constitute an Event of Default.
(h)    All construction will be performed free of defects in a good and workmanlike manner with materials which are new and of high quality. The Project will be equipped with

-48-


furnishings, fixtures and equipment which are new and of high quality. All construction shall be performed in compliance with the Plans, all applicable governmental approvals and all requirements of any applicable covenants, conditions and restrictions and the Project Documents. Borrower will, or will cause Owner to, promptly correct any defects in construction or material deviations from the Plans. The Borrower agrees that any Loan made by Lender, whether before or after such defects or departures from the Plans and Specifications are discovered by, or brought to the attention of, Lender, shall not constitute a waiver of Lender’s right to require compliance with this §9.3(b). Borrower will not, and will not permit Owner to, commence any phase of construction or operation until it has secured all required permits, licenses or other authorizations from the applicable governmental authorities. All materials and labor purchased and employed for the Project shall be used solely for the Project and for no other purpose. No changes will be made to the Plans except in accordance with Section 9.2 hereof, and all such changes shall be in compliance with applicable governmental approvals. All upgrades shall be performed in compliance with the applicable standards set forth in this subsection (b).

-57-


or any of the rights, remedies, powers and privileges of Lender under this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents in connection with protective advances or in respect of the Collateral or in support of any provision of adequate indemnity to Lender against any taxes or liens which by law shall have, or may have, priority over the rights of Lender to such monies;

(c)    Third, the excess, if any, shall be returned to Borrower or to such other Persons as are entitled thereto.
§12.6    Default Under Mortgage Loan Documents. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary (including without limitation §12.1(f)), Borrower hereby expressly agrees that any Mortgage Loan Event of Default (which shall be deemed to include maturity of the debt evidenced and secured by any of the Mortgage Loan Documents or any other occurrence which would give any holder of any of the Mortgage Loan Documents the right to exercise remedies thereunder) shall constitute and be deemed to be an Event of Default under this Agreement for which no right to cure shall be available. Without limiting the foregoing, a Mortgage Loan Event of Default shall conclusively be deemed to have occurred upon the declaration, statement or notice from the applicable mortgagee as to the existence or occurrence of a Mortgage Loan Event of Default. Upon the occurrence of any default under the Mortgage Loan Documents, Borrower shall deliver to Lender within five (5) business days after the first to occur of (x) receipt by Borrower or Owner of notice of such default from any mortgagee or (y) the date Borrower or Owner obtains actual knowledge of the occurrence of such default, a detailed description of the actions to be taken by Borrower or Owner to cure such default and the dates by which each such action shall occur. Such schedule shall be subject to the approval of Lender. Borrower shall take, or shall cause Owner to take, all such actions as are necessary to cure such default under the Mortgage Loan Documents by the date approved by Lender, and shall deliver to Lender not less frequently than weekly thereafter written updates concerning the status of Borrower’s and Owner’s efforts to cure such default. Lender shall have the right, but not the obligation, to pay any sums or to take any action which Lender deems necessary or advisable to cure any default or alleged default under the Mortgage Loan Documents (whether or not Borrower or Owner is undertaking efforts to cure such default or the same is a Mortgage Loan Event of Default or a Default or Event of Default hereunder), and such payment or such action is hereby authorized by Borrower, and any sum so paid and any expense incurred by Lender in taking any such action shall be evidenced by this Agreement and secured by the Security Documents and shall be immediately due and payable by Borrower to Lender upon Borrower’s receipt of written demand therefor with interest at the rate for overdue amounts set forth in §4.11 until paid. Lender shall be authorized to take such actions upon the assertion by any holder of any of the Mortgage Loan Documents of the existence of such default or Mortgage Loan Event of Default without any duty to inquire or determine whether such default or Mortgage Loan Event of Default exist. The consent or waiver by a holder of the Mortgage Loan Documents of any Mortgage Loan Event of Default or the cure of such Mortgage Loan Event of Default shall not annul the occurrence of an Event of Default hereunder unless otherwise approved by Lender. Borrower shall permit, and shall cause Owner to permit, Lender to enter upon the Collateral Property for the purpose

-58-

Borrower hereby irrevocably constitutes and appoints Lender its true and lawful attorney-in-fact, with full power of substitution, to execute, acknowledge and deliver any instruments and to do and perform any acts which are referred to in this §12.7(a), in the name and on behalf of Borrower. The power vested in such attorney-in-fact is, and shall be deemed to be, coupled with an interest and irrevocable.

FORM OF NOTE
$____________    ____________, 20__
FOR VALUE RECEIVED, the undersigned, IRIS CROSSTOWN PARTNERS LLC, a Georgia limited liability company, hereby promises to pay to the order of IRIS CROSSTOWN MEZZANINE LENDING, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company in accordance with the terms of that certain Mezzanine Loan Agreement dated as of _______, 20__, as from time to time in effect, among the undersigned and Iris Crosstown Mezzanine Lending, LLC, (the “Loan Agreement”) to the extent not sooner paid, on or before the Maturity Date, the principal sum of _________________________ AND NO/100 DOLLARS ($_______.00), or such amount as may be advanced by the payee hereof under the Loan Agreement, together with such additional principal from time to time outstanding under the Loan Agreement, with daily interest from the date hereof, computed as provided in the Loan Agreement, on the principal amount hereof from time to time unpaid, at a rate per annum on each portion of the principal amount which shall at all times be equal to the rate of interest applicable to such portion in accordance with the Loan Agreement, and with interest on overdue principal and, to the extent permitted by applicable law, on overdue installments of interest and late charges at the rates provided in the Loan Agreement. Interest shall be payable on the dates specified in the Loan Agreement, except that all accrued interest shall be paid at the stated or accelerated maturity hereof or upon the prepayment in full hereof. Capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings set forth in the Loan Agreement.
Payments hereunder shall be made to Iris Crosstown Mezzanine Lending, LLC, at c/o Preferred Apartment Communities Inc. One Overton Park, 3625 Cumberland Blvd., Suite 400, Atlanta, Georgia 30339, Attn: Leonard A. Silverstein, Esq., as provided in the Loan Agreement
This Note is one of one or more Notes evidencing borrowings under and is entitled to the benefits and subject to the provisions of the Loan Agreement. The principal of this Note may be due and payable in whole or in part prior to the Maturity Date and is subject to mandatory prepayment in the amounts and under the circumstances set forth in the Loan Agreement, and may be prepaid in whole or from time to time in part, all as set forth in the Loan Agreement.
Notwithstanding anything in this Note to the contrary, all agreements between the undersigned Borrower and Lender, whether now existing or hereafter arising and whether written or oral, are hereby limited so that in no contingency, whether by reason of acceleration of the maturity of any of the Obligations or otherwise, shall the interest contracted for, charged or received by Lender exceeds the maximum amount permissible under applicable law. If, from any circumstance whatsoever, interest would otherwise be payable to Lender in excess of the maximum lawful amount, the interest payable to Lender shall be reduced to the maximum amount permitted under applicable law; and if from any circumstance Lender shall ever receive anything of value deemed interest by applicable law in excess of the maximum lawful amount, an amount equal to any excessive interest shall be applied to the reduction of the principal balance of the Obligations of the undersigned Borrower and to the payment of interest or, if such excessive interest exceeds the unpaid balance

Exhibit “A” – Page 1



of principal of the Obligations of the undersigned Borrower, such excess shall be refunded to the undersigned Borrower. All interest paid or agreed to be paid to Lender shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, be amortized, prorated, allocated and spread throughout the full period until payment in full of the principal of the Obligations of the undersigned Borrower (including the period of any renewal or extension thereof) so that the interest thereon for such full period shall not exceed the maximum amount permitted by applicable law. This paragraph shall control all agreements between the undersigned Borrower and Lender.
In case an Event of Default shall occur, the entire principal amount of this Note plus all accrued and unpaid interest may become or be declared due and payable in the manner and with the effect provided in said Loan Agreement. In addition to and not in limitation of the foregoing and the provisions of the Loan Agreement hereinabove defined, the undersigned further agrees, subject only to any limitation imposed by applicable law, to pay all expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and legal expenses, incurred by the holder of this Note in endeavoring to collect any amounts payable hereunder which are not paid when due, whether by acceleration or otherwise.
This Note shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Georgia (without giving effect to the conflict of laws rules of any jurisdiction).
The undersigned maker and all guarantors and endorsers, hereby waive presentment, demand, notice, protest, notice of intention to accelerate the indebtedness evidenced hereby, notice of acceleration of the indebtedness evidenced hereby and all other demands and notices in connection with the delivery, acceptance, performance and enforcement of this Note, except as specifically otherwise provided in the Loan Agreement, and assent to extensions of time of payment or forbearance or other indulgence without notice.
