Figueroa Street, 16th Floor, Los Angeles, California 90017-5800, or at such other address as may be designated from time to time hereafter by any Lender, the principal sum of TWENTY MILLION NINE HUNDRED FIFTEEN THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED AND NO/100THS DOLLARS ($20,915,700.00), together with interest on the principal balance outstanding from time to time, as hereinafter provided, in lawful money of the United States of America.

By its execution and delivery of this promissory note (this “Note”), Borrower covenants and agrees as follows:
1. Interest Rate and Payments.
(a) The balance of principal outstanding from time to time under this Note shall bear interest at the rate of two and 80/100ths percent (2.80%) per annum (the “Interest Rate”), based on a three hundred sixty (360) day year composed of twelve (12) months of thirty (30) days each; provided, however, interest for the Stub Interest Period (defined below) and partial months shall be calculated by multiplying the principal balance of this Note by the interest rate, dividing the product by three hundred sixty (360), and multiplying that result by the actual number of days elapsed.
(b) Interest only shall be payable on the date the loan evidenced by this Note (the “Loan”) is funded by Lender, in advance, for the period from and including the date of funding through and including December 31, 2020 (the “Stub Interest Period”).
(c) Commencing on February 1, 2021, and on the first day of each month thereafter through and including January 1, 2026, payments of interest only on the outstanding principal balance of this Note shall be due and payable in arrears, in the amount of $48,803.30 each.
(d) Commencing on February 1, 2026, and on the first day of each month thereafter through and including the first day of the calendar month immediately preceding the Maturity Date, combined payments of principal and interest shall be payable, in arrears, in the amount of $85,941.45 each (such amount representing an amount sufficient to fully amortize the original principal amount of this Note over a three hundred sixty (360) month period (the “Amortization Period”).
(e) The entire outstanding principal balance of this Note, together with all accrued and unpaid interest and all other sums due hereunder, shall be due and payable in full on January 1, 2031 (the “Maturity Date”).
(a) Borrower shall have no right to prepay all or any part of this Note before the date (the “Lockout Expiration Date”) that is forty-eight (48) calendar months from and after the first day immediately following the Stub Interest Period.
(b) At any time on or after the Lockout Expiration Date, Borrower shall have the right to prepay the full principal amount of this Note and all accrued but unpaid interest hereon as of the date of prepayment, provided that (i) Borrower gives not less than thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to Lender of Borrower’s election to prepay this Note, (ii) Borrower pays a prepayment premium to Lender equal to the greater of (A) one percent (1%) of the outstanding principal amount of this Note or (B) the Present Value of this Note (hereinafter defined), less the amount of principal being prepaid, calculated as of the prepayment date, and (iii) Borrower simultaneously pays the full principal amounts of the Other Note, together with all accrued but unpaid interest thereon as of the date of prepayment, together with any prepayment premium payable with respect to the Other Note.
(c) Lender shall notify Borrower of the amount and basis of determination of the prepayment premium. Lender shall not be obligated to accept any prepayment of the principal balance of this Note unless such prepayment is accompanied by the applicable prepayment premium and all accrued interest and other sums due under this Note. Borrower may not prepay the Loan on a Friday, or on any day preceding a public holiday, or the equivalent for banks generally under the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (the “Commonwealth”), or on any day that is not a Business Day (hereinafter defined).
(d) Except for the application of insurance proceeds or condemnation awards to the principal balance of this Note, as provided in the Security Instrument (hereinafter defined), in no event shall Borrower be permitted to make any partial prepayments of this Note.
(e) If Lender accelerates this Note for any reason, then in addition to Borrower’s obligation to pay the then outstanding principal balance of this Note and all accrued but unpaid interest thereon, Borrower shall pay an additional amount equal to the prepayment premium that would be due to Lender if Borrower were voluntarily prepaying this Note at the time that such acceleration occurred, or if under the terms hereof no voluntary prepayment would be permissible on the date of such acceleration, Borrower shall pay a prepayment premium calculated as set forth in the Security Instrument.
(f) For the purposes of the foregoing:
(i) The “Present Value of this Note” with respect to any prepayment of this Note, as of any date, shall be determined by discounting all scheduled payments of principal and interest remaining to the date immediately prior to the day which is ninety (90) days prior to the maturity of this Note, attributed to the amount being prepaid, at the Discount Rate. If prepayment occurs on a date other than a regularly scheduled payment date, the actual number of days remaining from the prepayment date to the next regularly scheduled payment date will be used to discount within such period.
(ii) The “Discount Rate” is the rate which, when compounded monthly, is equivalent to the Treasury Rate, when compounded semi-annually.
(iii) The “Treasury Rate” is the semi-annual yield on the Treasury Constant Maturity Series with maturity equal to the remaining weighted average life of this Note, for the week prior to the prepayment date, as reported in Federal Reserve Statistical Release H.15–Selected Interest Rates, conclusively determined by Lender on the prepayment date. The rate will be determined by linear interpolation between the yields reported in Release H.15, if necessary. In the event Release H.15 is no longer published, Lender shall select a comparable publication to determine the Treasury Rate.
(g) Lender shall not be obligated actually to reinvest the amount prepaid in any treasury obligations as a condition precedent to receiving any prepayment premium.
(h) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, (i) no prepayment premium shall be due in connection with the application of any insurance proceeds or condemnation awards to the principal balance of this Note, as provided in the Security Instrument, provided that no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, and (ii) Borrower shall have the right to prepay the full principal amount of this Note and all accrued but unpaid interest thereon as of the date of prepayment, without prepayment premium thereon at any time during the ninety (90) calendar days prior to the Maturity Date.
3. Payments. Whenever any payment to be made under this Note shall be stated to be due on a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday or the equivalent for banks generally under the laws of the Commonwealth (any other day being a “Business Day”), such payment shall be due on the next succeeding Business Day.
4. Default Rate.
(a) The entire balance of principal, interest, and other sums due upon the maturity hereof, by acceleration or otherwise, shall bear interest from the date due until paid at the greater of (i) twelve percent (12%) per annum, (ii) a per annum rate equal to five percent (5%) over the prime rate (for corporate loans at large United States money center commercial banks) published in The Wall Street Journal on the first business day of each month, and (iii) a per annum rate equal to five percent (5%) over the Interest Rate (the “Default Rate”); provided, however, that such rate shall not exceed the maximum permitted by applicable state or federal law. In the event The Wall Street Journal is no longer published or no longer publishes such prime rate, Lender shall select a comparable reference.
(b) If any payment under this Note is not made when due, interest shall accrue on the entire balance of principal on the Loan at the Default Rate from the date such payment was due until payment is actually made.
(c) Notwithstanding any applicable law to the contrary and to the extent legally permissible, the Default Rate shall apply after the entry of a judgment against Borrower, and the judgment shall bear interest at the Default Rate until paid in full.
5. Late Charges. In addition to interest as set forth herein, Borrower shall pay Lender a late charge equal to four percent (4%) of any amounts due under this Note in the event any such amount (other than the principal payment at maturity, whether by acceleration or otherwise) is not paid when due; provided, however, that Borrower shall be permitted to make two (2) monthly payments due under this Note (other than any amounts due on maturity hereof) within five (5) days following their respective due dates in any consecutive twelve (12) month period without such late payment resulting in a late charge.
6. Application of Payments. All payments hereunder shall be applied first to the payment of late charges, if any, then to the payment of prepayment premiums, if any, then to the repayment of any sums advanced by Lender for the payment of any insurance premiums, taxes, assessments, or other charges against the property securing this Note, if any, and any other costs and expenses incurred by Lender in accordance with the Loan Documents (together with interest thereon at the Default Rate from the date of advance until repaid), then to the payment of accrued and unpaid interest, and then to the reduction of principal. Notwithstanding the foregoing, for so long as any Event of Default is continuing, Lender shall have the continuing exclusive right to apply any payments received by Lender from or on behalf of Borrower as Lender may elect against the then due and owing obligations of Borrower under this Note in such order of priority or in such allocation as Lender may deem advisable in its sole and absolute discretion.
7. Immediately Available Funds. Payments under the Loan shall be payable in immediately available funds without setoff, counterclaim or deduction of any kind, and shall be made by electronic funds transfer from a bank account established and maintained by Borrower for such purpose.
8. Security. This Note is secured by an Open-End Mortgage, Security Agreement, Fixture Filing, Financing Statement and Assignment of Leases and Rents of even date herewith granted by Borrower for the benefit of the named Lender hereof (the “Security Instrument”), encumbering certain real property and improvements thereon and as more particularly described in such Security Instrument (the “Property”).
9. Certain Definitions. Capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined shall have the meanings set forth in the Security Instrument.
10. Event of Default. Any failure to pay when due any sum hereunder shall constitute an “Event of Default” under this Note and under the Security Instrument and each other Loan Document, and any Event of Default under any Loan Document shall constitute an Event of Default hereunder and under each other Loan Document.
11. Acceleration. Upon the occurrence of any Event of Default, the entire balance of principal, accrued interest, and other sums owing hereunder shall, at the option of Lender, become at once due and payable without notice or demand.
12. Conditions Precedent. Borrower hereby certifies and declares that all acts, conditions and things required to be done and performed and to have happened precedent to the creation and issuance of this Note, and to constitute this Note the legal, valid and binding obligation of Borrower, enforceable in accordance with the terms hereof, have been done and performed and happened in due and strict compliance with all applicable laws.
13. Certain Waivers and Consents. Borrower and all parties now or hereafter liable for the payment hereof, primarily or secondarily, directly or indirectly, and whether as endorser, guarantor, surety, or otherwise, hereby severally (a) waive presentment, demand, protest, notice of protest and/or dishonor, and all other demands or notices of any sort whatever with respect to this Note, (b) consent to impairment or release of collateral, extensions of time for payment, and acceptance of partial payments before, at, or after maturity, (c) waive any right to require Lender to proceed against any security for this Note before proceeding hereunder, (d) waive diligence in the collection of this Note or in filing suit on this Note, and (e) agree to pay all costs and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, which may be incurred in the collection of this Note or any part thereof or in preserving, securing possession of, and realizing upon any security for this Note.
14. Usury Savings Clause. The provisions of this Note and of all agreements between Borrower and Lender are, whether now existing or hereinafter made, hereby expressly limited so that in no contingency or event whatever, whether by reason of acceleration of the maturity hereof, prepayment, demand for payment or otherwise, shall the amount paid, or agreed to be paid, to Lender for the use, forbearance, or detention of the principal hereof or interest hereon, which remains unpaid from time to time, exceed the maximum amount permissible under applicable law, it particularly being the intention of the parties hereto to conform strictly to the laws of the Commonwealth and Federal law, whichever is applicable. If from any circumstance whatever, the performance or fulfillment of any provision hereof or of any other agreement between Borrower and Lender shall, at the time performance or fulfillment of such provision is due, involve or purport to require any payment in excess of the limits prescribed by law, then the obligation to be performed or fulfilled is hereby reduced to the limit of such validity, and if from any circumstance whatever Lender should ever receive as interest an amount which would exceed the highest lawful rate, the amount which would be excessive interest shall be applied to the reduction of the principal balance owing hereunder (or, at Lender’s option, be paid over to Borrower) and shall not be counted as interest. To the extent permitted by applicable law, determination of the legal maximum amount of interest shall at all times be made by amortizing, prorating, allocating and spreading in equal parts during the period of the full stated term of this Note, all interest at any time contracted for, charged, or received from Borrower in connection with this Note and all other agreements between Borrower and Lender, so that the actual rate of interest on account of the indebtedness represented by this Note is uniform throughout the term hereof.
15. Non Recourse; Exceptions to Non Recourse. Nothing contained in this Note or any of the other Loan Documents shall be deemed to impair or limit Lender’s rights: in foreclosure proceedings or in any ancillary proceedings brought to facilitate Lender’s foreclosure on the Property or any portion thereof or to exercise any specific rights or remedies afforded Lender under any other provisions of the Loan Documents or by law or in equity, subject to the non-recourse provisions set forth in subsections 15(a) and 15(a)(i) below: to recover under any guarantee given in connection with the Loan; or to pursue any personal liability of Borrower or Surety under the Environmental Indemnity Agreement or Section 5.10 of the Security Instrument.

(v) of the appointment (other than by or at the direction of Lender) of a receiver, trustee or liquidator with respect to Borrower or the Property or any part thereof; provided, however, that if such receiver at the request of party other than Borrower, Surety, any person directly or indirectly liable for the obligations of Borrower, absent Borrower soliciting, consenting to, or colluding in the appointment of such receiver, this subsection 15(b)(v) shall not apply, so long as Borrower opposes the same in good faith; provided, however, that Borrower’s failure to oppose the same shall not trigger recourse liability, if Borrower has no reasonable good faith basis for opposing the same;
(vi) that Borrower’s failure to, at all times, be a single purpose entity results in Borrower being substantively consolidated with any affiliate of Borrower in a bankruptcy or similar proceeding or that Borrower’s breach or violation of the Special Purpose Entity Requirements results in Borrower being substantively consolidated with any affiliate of Borrower in a bankruptcy or similar proceeding; or
(vii) that the Security Instrument or any of the other Loan Documents is deemed a fraudulent conveyance or preference or is otherwise deemed void pursuant to any principles limiting the rights of creditors, whether such claims, demands or assertions are made under the United States Bankruptcy Code (as amended or replaced from time to time), including, without limitation, under Sections 544, 547 or 548 thereof, or under any applicable state fraudulent conveyance statutes or similar laws.
16. Severability.
