THIS CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT AND DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT dated as of the _____ day of __________, _____ (the “Management Agreement” or the “Agreement”) between COMMERCIAL PROPERTY LANDLORD, INC., a __________ corporation, (“Owner”) and AGREEABLE MANAGER, INC., a _______ corporation (“Manager”).

IN CONSIDERATION of the mutual promises and covenants herein contained, Owner and Manager agree as follows:


Appointment of Manager

Owner hereby appoints Manager, on the conditions and for the term hereinafter provided, to act for it in the operation, maintenance, management and development of the property identified on Exhibit A attached hereto and made a part hereof (the “Property”), which management and development duties are more particularly described in Articles IV and V. Manager hereby accepts said appointment to the extent of, and subject to, the conditions set forth below.



The term of this Agreement shall commence on the date hereof and shall continue until the date of Substantial Completion of the Property (the “Initial Expiration Date”) unless this Agreement shall be terminated and the obligations of the parties hereunder shall sooner cease and terminate, as hereinafter provided; provided, however, that the term of this Management Agreement shall automatically extend for consecutive one-year periods following the Initial Expiration Date unless Manager or Owner provides the other with written notice, at least six months prior to the beginning of any such additional one-year period, of its election to terminate this Management Agreement.


Management and Development Fee

A. Owner shall pay Manager, as Manager’s entire compensation for the services rendered hereunder in connection with the management of the Property, a management fee (the “Management Fee”) equal to (i) $_________ per annum, payable in equal monthly installments, in arrears, in the amount of $___________ each on the tenth day of each calendar month beginning with the first calendar month after the date hereof. In the event that this Agreement shall commence on a date other than the first day of a calendar month or shall terminate on a date other than the last day of a calendar month, the installment of the Management Fee payable for that month shall be prorated for the actual number of days that this Agreement is effective in that calendar month.

B. Owner shall pay Manager, as Manager’s compensation for the services rendered hereunder in connection with the development of the Property, a development fee (the “Development Fee”) (the Development Fee and the Management Fee are sometimes referred to herein, collectively, as the “Management and Development Fee”) equal to (i) five percent (5%) of the total Development Costs (as hereinafter defined) with respect to the Property, plus (ii) general overhead and administrative expenses equal to one percent (1%) of the total Development Costs with respect to the Property.

In the event that it is determined, upon Substantial Completion of the Property, that the aggregate Development Installments paid to Manager as of such date on account of the Development Fee total less than the amount of the Development Fee that is due to Manager hereunder in respect of the Property, Owner shall pay to Manager, within 15 days after Substantial Completion of the Property or upon the transfer of the Property to any unaffiliated third party, whichever is earlier, an amount equal to such difference.

As used herein, the following terms shall have the following meanings:

Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event shall Development Costs include costs paid for or reimbursed by the tenants for improvements inside the leased premises of those tenants, the Development Fee, costs of the land and, with respect to loans made to Owner, interest, commitment fees and points.

C. Manager shall receive no commissions, fees or other compensation (other than the Management Fee) in connection with any leasing or sale of any part of or the entire Property or the procuring of any financing or refinancing with respect thereto; provided, however, that nothing contained herein shall in any way restrict the commissions, fees and other compensation otherwise payable to any affiliate of Manager by Owner pursuant to the Retention Agreement.
