SECTION 1.     Definitions. Except as otherwise provided herein, and unless the context shall clearly require otherwise, all words and terms used in this THIRTEENTH Amendment that are defined in the Composite Lease Agreement, the Special Facility Ground Lease Agreement and the Special Facility Lease Agreement shall have the respective meanings given to them in each agreement for all purposes of this THIRTEENTH Amendment.

SECTION 2.     Modification of Composite Lease and Applicable Rent. The parties amend the Composite Lease Agreement to reflect the addition of Parcel 36 as described in the attached property listing as shown on “EXHIBIT B”. As of the Effective Date, the parties incorporate the attached surveys and legal descriptions of Parcel 36 to be part of “EXHIBIT B” to the Composite Lease Agreement, and the parties substitute the table attached to this Amendment for the table included as part of “EXHIBIT A” to the Composite Lease Agreement. The substitution of that table will accomplish the following:

(a)     Effective on the earlier of the Parcel 36 “Substantial Completion Date” (as defined in Section 3(c) below), Tenant’s annual rent will be increased by an amount equal to the product achieved by multiplying the area of Parcel 36 by $0.2244 as follows:

Ramp Access Area

     109,051      $ 0.2244      $ 24,471.04
