       ARTICLE 2.   CONSTRUCTION - COMMENCEMENT DATE

       Section 2.l  Preparation of the Premises.
                    ---------------------------

       (A)  Landlord shall perform Landlord's Work, as set forth in the Tenant
Improvement Agreement annexed hereto as Exhibit C.  Tenant agrees to comply with
all of the terms and provisions of the Tenant Improvement Agreement.

       (B)  Landlord shall not be required to commence Landlord's Work unless
(i) the parties shall have agreed upon the cost of Landlord's Additional Work,
and (ii) said cost, less Landlord's Allowance, as defined in the Tenant
Improvement Agreement, is paid to Landlord.

       (C)  Landlord shall give Tenant ten (10) days' written notice of the
anticipated date of substantial completion of Landlord's Work, and Tenant shall
have the right during said ten-day period to enter into the Premises for the
purpose of installing its personal property and equipment and otherwise
preparing the Premises for its occupancy.  During said ten-day period, (i)
neither Tenant nor its agents or employees shall interfere with Landlord's Work
or with any other work being done by Landlord and Landlord's agents and
employees in other parts of the Building, (ii) Tenant shall comply with all
reasonable rules and regulations promulgated by Landlord, its agents or
employees, (iii) the labor employed by Tenant shall be harmonious and compatible
with the labor employed by Landlord in the Building, it being agreed that if in
Landlord's judgment such labor is incompatible, Tenant shall forthwith upon
Landlord's demand withdraw Tenant's labor from the Premises, (iv) Tenant shall
procure and deliver to Landlord workmen's compensation, public liability,
property damage and such other insurance policies, in such amounts, as shall be
reasonably acceptable to Landlord in connection with the preparation work being
done by Tenant in the Premises, and shall cause Landlord to be named as an
insured thereunder, and (v) all the terms, provisions and agreements of this
Lease, except for the obligation to pay Rent, shall apply.

       Section 2.2  Commencement Date.
                    -----------------

       (A)  The Term of this Lease shall commence on the date that Landlord
notifies Tenant that it has substantially completed Landlord's Work.  Within ten
(10) days after the Commencement Date, Landlord's representative and Tenant's
representative shall jointly examine the Premises and shall compile a list of
any remaining items of work which Landlord may be obligated to complete ("punch
list items").  The taking of possession of the Premises by Tenant shall be
deemed an acceptance of the Premises and an acknowledgement that Landlord's Work
has been substantially completed, but Landlord shall thereafter complete the
punch list items.

       (B)  If Tenant takes possession of the Premises prior to the Commencement
Date, Tenant's obligation to pay Rent hereunder and to observe and perform all
other conditions and agreements hereunder shall commence on such earlier date of
possession, but the Term of the Lease shall not be affected thereby.

       (C)  In the event that substantial completion of Landlord's Work is
delayed by reason of delays caused or occasioned by Tenant, then at Landlord's
option the Term of this Lease shall commence on the date that this Lease would
have commenced had not the completion of Landlord's Work been so delayed by
Tenant (or as reasonably determined by Landlord) or such occurrence shall
constitute a default on the part of Tenant hereunder entitling Landlord to
exercise all rights and remedies provided for herein in the event of Tenant's
default.

       (D)  Landlord's Work shall be deemed to have been substantially completed
when the Premises may be lawfully occupied and the heating, ventilation, air
conditioning, mechanical and elevator systems serving the Premises are operable.

       (E)  Tenant shall, upon the demand of Landlord, promptly execute,
acknowledge and deliver to Landlord an instrument substantially similar to that
annexed hereto as Exhibit E, confirming the dates of commencement and expiration
of the Term of this Lease and such other matters as are set forth on Exhibit E.

       Section 2.3  Ownership of Improvements.

       All installations, alterations, additions, improvements and fixtures now
or at any time hereafter attached to or located upon the Premises, made or
installed by either party, shall be the property of Landlord and shall, unless
Landlord otherwise elects by giving Tenant notice at least thirty (30) days
prior to the expiration or sooner termination of the Term, remain upon and be
surrendered with the Premises at the expiration or sooner termination of the
Term.  None of the foregoing shall be deemed to include any of Tenant's
furniture and personal property which is removable without damage to the
Premises.


                                 ARTICLE 3. RENT

       Section 3.l  Payment.
                    -------

       All Rent shall be paid in the lawful money of the United States which
shall be legal tender in payment of all debts and dues, public and private, at
the time of payment, at the address of Landlord set forth in this Lease or at
such other place as Landlord in writing may designate, without any set-off or
deduction whatsoever and without any prior demand therefor.  Tenant shall pay
the annual Fixed Rent in equal monthly installments in advance on the first day
of each calendar month included in the Term.  Unless another time shall be
herein expressly provided, Additional Rent shall be due and payable on demand or
together with the next succeeding installment of Fixed Rent, whichever shall
first occur.  For any portion of a calendar month included at the beginning or
end of the Term, Tenant shall pay l/30th of each monthly installment of Rent for
each day of such portion, payable in advance at the beginning of such portion.

       Section 3.2  Additional Rent.
                    ---------------

       (A)  Tenant shall pay to Landlord, as Additional Rent, Tenant's Pro Rata
Share of Taxes which in any calendar year exceed the actual Taxes for the 1997
calendar year.  Said amount shall be prorated if the Commencement Date does not
coincide with the beginning or the expiration date does not coincide with the
end of a calendar year.

       (B)  Commencing on the Commencement Date, Tenant shall pay, with each
monthly installment of Fixed Rent, one-twelfth (1/12) of the amount reasonably
estimated by Landlord to be due as Tenant's Pro Rata Share of excess Taxes for
the following calendar year.  If Taxes for the following calendar year are not
known, monthly installments shall be based on the current calendar year with
immediate adjustment as soon as said Taxes become known.  If at the time any
Taxes or installments thereof are required to be paid the total amount of
Tenant's monthly payments on account of excess Taxes are insufficient to pay
Tenant's Pro Rata Share thereof, Tenant shall pay such deficiency within five
(5) days after demand therefor.  If any payment on account of excess Taxes shall
be due for the calendar year in which the Commencement Date occurs, Tenant shall
pay said amount to Landlord within thirty (30) days following Landlord's demand
therefor.

       (C)  Should any taxing authority impose any separate additional taxes on
the value of any improvements made by Tenant, or include machinery, equipment,
fixtures, inventory or other personal property or assets of Tenant, then Tenant


                                       20
<PAGE>   21

shall pay the entire tax attributable to such items.  Tenant shall pay any
sales, use, occupancy, value added (if the value added is not in lieu of Taxes
as described in Section 3.2D) or similar tax hereafter levied or imposed in
connection with the Fixed or Additional Rent payable by Tenant.

       (D)  The term Taxes shall mean (i) the total amount of Taxes payable with
respect to the Building and the Building Parcel and all improvements thereon,
including the Parking Garage, plus (ii) one-quarter (1/4) of the total amount of
Taxes payable with respect to or attributable to the Auxiliary Areas.  Taxes
shall include all real estate taxes, assessments, water and sewer rents and
other governmental impositions and charges of every kind and nature whatsoever,
extraordinary as well as ordinary, foreseeable and unforeseeable, including any
and all fees or expenses incurred in connection with the institution,
prosecution, conduct and maintenance of negotiations, settlements, actions or
proceedings with respect to the amount of any Taxes, and each and every
installment thereof which shall or may during the Term of this Lease be levied,
assessed, imposed, become due and payable or a lien upon or arise in connection
with the use, occupancy or possession of or grow due or payable out of or for,
the Building, the Parking Garage, the land constituting the Building Parcel or
any part thereof or improvements thereon, and the Auxiliary Areas or any part
thereof or improvements thereon, but excluding, however, any of the foregoing
relating to any charge which is measured by the consumption by the actual user
of the item or service for which the charge is made.  A Tax bill or copy thereof
submitted by Landlord to Tenant shall be conclusive evidence of the amount of
Taxes or installments thereof.

       (E)  Nothing herein contained shall be construed to include as part of
the Taxes described in Section 3.2 D any inheritance, estate, succession,
transfer, gift, franchise, corporation income or profit tax or capital levy that
is or may be imposed upon Landlord; provided, however, that if, at any time
during the Term, the method of taxation prevailing at the time of the execution
of this Lease shall be altered so that in lieu of or as a substitute for the
whole or any part of the Taxes now levied, assessed or imposed on real estate as
such, there shall be levied, assessed or imposed (i) a tax on the rents received
from real estate, or (ii) a license fee measured by the rents receivable by
Landlord for the Building or the Parking Garage or any portion thereof or (iii)
a tax or license fee imposed on Landlord which is otherwise measured by or
based, in whole or in part, upon the Building or the Parking Garage or any
portion thereof or (iv) any other tax or levy imposed in lieu of or as a
supplement to Taxes which are in existence as of the date of the execution of
this Lease, then the same shall be included in the determination of Tenant's Pro
Rata Share of excess Taxes, computed as if the amount of such tax or fee so
payable were that due if the Building, the Parking Garage, the Building Parcel
and Auxiliary Areas were the only property of Landlord subject thereto.

       (F)  In the event Landlord shall obtain a Tax refund as a result of tax
reduction proceedings,  then, after the final conclusion of all appeals or other
remedies, Tenant shall, provided Tenant is not then in default, be entitled to
its Pro Rata Share of the net refund obtained, based upon any amount paid by
Tenant which is the subject of the refund.  As used herein, the term "net
refund" means the refund plus interest thereon, if any, paid by the Governmental
Authority less appraisal, administrative, engineering, expert testimony,
attorney, printing and filing fees and all other costs and expenses of the
proceeding.  Tenant shall not have the right to institute or participate in any
such proceedings, it being understood that the commencement, maintenance,
settlement, or conduct thereof shall be in the sole discretion of Landlord.

       (G)  Tenant shall pay to Landlord, as Additional Rent, Tenant's Pro Rata
Share of Operating Costs which in any calendar year exceed the actual Operating
Costs for the 1997 calendar year.  Said amount shall be pro-rated if the
Commencement Date does not coincide with the beginning or the expiration date
does not coincide with the end of a calendar year.  As soon as practicable after
the end of the calendar year in which the Commencement Date occurs, Landlord
shall notify Tenant as to the amount, if any, payable by Tenant as its Pro Rata


                                       21
<PAGE>   22

Share of excess Operating Costs, and Tenant shall pay said amount to Landlord
within thirty (30) days thereafter.  Commencing with the next calendar year and
for each succeeding calendar year (or portion thereof) during the Term of this
Lease, Tenant shall pay its Pro Rata Share of excess Operating Costs, as
reasonably estimated by Landlord, in equal monthly installments along with
Tenant's monthly installments of Fixed Rent.  Estimates of Operating Costs shall
be revised annually by Landlord.

       (H)  The term Operating Costs shall mean (i) the total cost and expense
incurred by Landlord in operating and maintaining the Building and the land
constituting the Building Parcel and all improvements thereon, specifically
excluding the Parking Garage, plus (ii) one-quarter (1/4) of the total cost and
expense incurred by Landlord in operating and maintaining the Auxiliary Areas.
Operating Costs shall include, without limitation, costs for: (i) operation,
maintenance and repair of the Building and Auxiliary Areas, including the
equipment and machinery used in conjunction therewith and the costs of
inspection and depreciation thereof; (ii) maintenance, repair and replacement of
paved areas, curbs, walkways, landscaping, drainage and other outdoor facilities
on the Building Parcel and Entry Plaza; (iii) painting and redecorating; (iv)
security services and the regulation of automobile and pedestrian traffic; (v)
insurance, including, without limitation, public liability, property damage,
sign, casualty and rent insurance; (vi) utilities, including ordinary usage of
electricity, heat, air conditioning, ventilation, domestic water and sewer
facilities in tenant areas; (vii) refuse collection and removal; (viii)
janitorial and cleaning services, including ordinary cleaning of tenant areas
and janitorial supplies and equipment; (ix) sanitary control and extermination;
(x) capital improvements made to the Building and/or Auxiliary Areas which can
reasonably be expected to reduce Operating Costs, as well as capital
improvements made in order to comply with any statutes, rules, regulations or
directives hereafter promulgated by any Governmental Authority relating to
energy, conservation, public safety or security, as amortized by Landlord over
the useful life of the improvements; (xi) personnel to implement all of the
aforementioned, including fringe benefits and workmen's compensation insurance
covering such personnel; (xii) contractual management fees and other expenses
directly related to the on-site management of the Building and Auxiliary Areas;
and (xiii) other similar costs of the type incurred in the operation of
comparable properties.

       (I)  Not later than one hundred eighty (180) days after the end of each
calendar year, Landlord shall furnish to Tenant a statement showing in
reasonable detail the information necessary for the calculation and
determination of Landlord's actual Operating Costs.  If the total of all monthly
charges paid by Tenant on account of excess Operating Costs during such calendar
year shall be less than Tenant's Pro Rata Share thereof for such calendar year,
as shown by such statement, Tenant shall pay to Landlord the difference within
thirty (30) days after receipt of such statement.

       Section 3.3  Late Payments.
                    -------------

       From and after the due date of any payment of Rent, interest shall accrue
thereon at the rate of the lesser of 1 1/2% per month or the maximum rate
permitted by law.


       ARTICLE 4.    COMMON AREAS

       Section 4.l  Common Areas.  Landlord hereby grants to Tenant a non-
                    ------------
exclusive license to use (a) the hallways, elevators, lobby and other public
conveniences of the Building, (b) such other areas in or adjoining the Building
as may from time to time be designated by Landlord for use in common by Landlord
and the tenants of the Building, and (c) the Auxiliary Areas, individually and
collectively referred to as "common areas".  Except for the Auxiliary Areas and
such other areas as may be specifically designated by Landlord, Tenant shall
have no rights whatsoever with respect to the use of adjacent property now or
hereafter owned or operated by Landlord.


                                       22
<PAGE>   23

       (A)  No schedule, exhibit, plan, drawing, rendering, brochure, or the
like shall be deemed to create a warranty, representation or agreement on the
part of Landlord that the Building or common areas will be or will continue to
be exactly as indicated thereon.  Landlord reserves the right to (i) increase,
reduce or change the number, type, size, location, elevation, nature and use of
any of the common areas and (ii) to make changes, additions, alterations, or
improvements in or to the Building and common areas.  Except as herein provided,
Tenant shall have no rights with respect to the land or improvements below
exterior floor slab level or above the interior surface of the finished ceiling
of the Premises or air rights or any easements, in, on, about, below or above
the Premises.  This Lease grants no parking rights to Tenant.  Such rights, if
any, shall be created and governed by a separate written agreement.

       (B)  The common areas shall be subject to such reasonable rules and
regulations as Landlord may, from time to time, adopt.  Landlord reserves the
right to close all or any portion of the common areas for the minimum length of
time as may, in the opinion of Landlord's counsel, be legally sufficient to
prevent a dedication thereof or the accrual of any rights of the public therein,
and to do and perform such other acts in and to the common areas as in the use
of Landlord's good business judgment will improve the use thereof.

the Premises in order to determine whether Tenant's use of electricity deviates
from or exceeds the conditions herein set forth.  Each such inspection shall be
conducted in such a manner as to minimize interference with Tenant's operations
at the Premises.  If Tenant's use of electricity deviates from or exceeds the
conditions set forth in this Lease, Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for the cost
of such inspection and Landlord shall have the right to require Tenant to pay,
from the date the condition first exists, the costs of excess electricity
consumption, as reasonably estimated by Landlord or Landlord's consultants or as

judgment, are desirable or necessary, or required to be made by Landlord or
Tenant pursuant to this  Lease, until said repairs, alterations, replacements or
improvements shall have been completed.  The exercise of such right by Landlord

Tenant if any of said services or facilities is interrupted or otherwise

       (C)  Corporate Property Investors is the designation of the Trustees
under a Declaration of Trust dated June 24, 1971, as amended, and neither the
shareholders nor the Trustees, officers, employees or agents of the Trust
created thereby shall be liable hereunder and, subject to Section 6.2B, all
persons shall look solely to the trust estate for the payment of any claims
hereunder or for the performance hereof.


       ARTICLE 7.  TENANT'S ADDITIONAL COVENANTS

       Section 7.1  Affirmative Covenants.
                    ---------------------

       Tenant covenants that at all times during the Term Tenant, at its sole
cost and expense, shall:

       (A)  Use the Premises only for the Permitted Use and for no other purpose
and in no event shall Tenant permit the use of the Premises in violation of any
Governmental Requirements;

       (B)  Take good care of the Premises and the fixtures therein and make all
improvements, repairs and replacements to the Premises not required to be made
by Landlord as and when needed to preserve the Premises in good working order
and condition, except that Tenant shall not be required to make any structural
repairs or structural replacements to the Premises unless necessitated by the
acts or omissions of Tenant or any Persons claiming through or under Tenant, or
by the use or occupancy or manner of use or occupancy of the Premises by Tenant
or any such Person.  All repairs and replacements made by or on behalf of Tenant
or any Person claiming through or under Tenant shall be at least equal in
quality and class to the original work or installation.

       (C)  Make all repairs, alterations, additions or replacements to the
Premises, including appurtenances, equipment, facilities and fixtures therein,


                                       26
<PAGE>   27

arising out of Tenant's use or occupancy of the Premises necessary to satisfy
any Governmental Requirement; and otherwise comply with the orders and
regulations of any Governmental Authority.

       (D)  Pay promptly when due the cost of any work in or to the Premises, so
that the Premises and Building shall, at all times, be free of liens for labor
and materials; procure all Necessary Approvals before undertaking such work; do
all such work in a good and workmanlike manner acceptable to Landlord, employing
materials of good quality; comply with any Governmental Requirement relating
thereto.  Tenant shall not, at any time prior to or during the Term, directly or
indirectly employ, or permit the employment of, any contractor, mechanic or
laborer in the Premises if such employment will interfere or cause conflict with
other contractors, mechanics, or laborers engaged in the construction,
maintenance or operation of the Building by Landlord, Tenant or others.  In the
event of any such interference or conflict, Tenant, upon demand of Landlord,
shall cause all contractors, mechanics or laborers causing such interference or
conflict to leave the Building immediately.

       (E)  Indemnify and save Landlord harmless of and from all loss, cost,
liability, damage and expense, including, but not limited to, reasonable counsel
fees, penalties and fines, incurred in connection with or arising from (i) any
default by Tenant in the observance or performance of any of the terms,
covenants or conditions of this Lease on Tenant's part to be observed or
performed, or (ii) the use or occupancy or manner of use or occupancy of the
Building or Premises by Tenant or any Person claiming through or under Tenant,
or (iii) any acts, omissions or negligence of Tenant or any such Person, or the
contractors, agents, servants, employees, visitors or licensees of Tenant or any
such Person, in or about the Premises or the Building either prior to, during or
after the expiration of the Term, or (iv) any claims by any Persons by reason of
injury to persons or damage to property occasioned by any use, occupancy, act,
omission or negligence referred to herein.

       (F)  Maintain with responsible companies approved by Landlord (i)
comprehensive liability insurance, with contractual liability endorsement
covering the matters set forth in paragraph E above, against all claims, demands
or actions for injury to or death of person and damage to property, to the limit
of not less than $3,000,000 per occurrence and/or in the aggregate, arising
from, related to, or in any way connected with Tenant's use or occupancy of the
Premises, or caused by actions or omissions of Tenant, its agents, servants and
contractors, which insurance shall name Landlord and its agents as additional
insureds; and (ii) fire insurance, with such extended coverage, vandalism,
malicious mischief and sprinkler leakage endorsements attached as Landlord
reasonably may, from time to time, require, covering all trade fixtures and
equipment, furniture, furnishings, improvements or betterments installed or made
by Tenant in, on or about the Premises to the extent of at least 80% of their
replacement value, without deduction for depreciation, but in any event in an
amount sufficient to prevent Tenant from becoming a co-insurer under provisions
of applicable policies.  Tenant's insurance shall be in form satisfactory to
Landlord and shall provide that it shall not be subject to cancellation,
termination or change except after at least ten (10) days' prior written notice
to Landlord.  All policies required pursuant to this paragraph F or duly
executed certificates for the same shall be deposited with Landlord not less
than ten (10) days prior to the day Tenant is expected to take occupancy and any
renewals of said policies not less than fifteen (15) days prior to the
expiration of the term of such coverage.  Landlord and Tenant mutually agree
that with respect to any loss which is covered by insurance then being carried
by them respectively, or required to be carried, or as to any coverage which
Landlord agrees need not be carried, the party suffering a loss releases the
other of and from any and all claims with respect to such loss; and they further
mutually agree that their respective insurance companies shall have no right of
subrogation against the other on account thereof.

       (G)  Landlord and its agents and employees shall not be liable for, and
Tenant waives all claims for, loss or damage to person or property sustained by


                                       27
<PAGE>   28

Tenant resulting from any accident or occurrence (unless caused by the
negligence of Landlord, its agents, servants or employees other than accidents
or occurrences against which Tenant is insured) in or upon the Premises or the
Building, including, but not limited to, claims for damage resulting from:  (i)
equipment or appurtenances becoming out of repair; (ii) injury occasioned by
wind; (iii) any defect in or failure of plumbing, heating, air conditioning or
ventilation equipment, electric wiring, gas, water, steam or other pipes,
stairs, porches, railings or walks; (iv) broken glass; (v) the backing up of any
pipe or downspout; (vi) the bursting, leaking or running of any pipe, drain or
tank in, upon or about the Building or the Premises; (vii) the escape of steam
or hot water; (viii) water, snow or ice upon or coming through the roof or
windows, walks or otherwise; (ix) the falling of any fixture, plaster, concrete,
glass, metal, tile or stucco; and (x) any act, omission or negligence of other
occupants of the Building.

       (H)  Permit Landlord and its agents to have access in and about the
Premises including, without limitation, the right (i) to enter the Premises to
examine the Premises  and/or to perform any obligation of Landlord under this
Lease or any other lease to which Landlord is party and/or to exercise any right
or remedy reserved to Landlord in this Lease; (ii) to erect, install, use and
maintain in concealed locations columns, beams, pipes, ducts and conduits in and
through the Premises; (iii) to exhibit the Premises to others; (iv) to make such
repairs, alterations, improvements or additions, or to perform such maintenance
as Landlord may deem necessary or desirable; and (v) to take all materials into
and upon the Premises that may be required in connection with any such
decorations, repairs, alterations, improvements, additions or maintenance.  All
parts (except surfaces facing the interior of the Premises) of all walls,
windows and doors bounding the Premises (including exterior Building walls, core
corridor walls, doors and entrances), all balconies, terraces and roofs adjacent
to the Premises, all space in or adjacent to the Premises used for shafts,
stairways, chutes, pipes, conduits, ducts, fan rooms, mechanical facilities,
service closets and other Building facilities, and the use thereof, as well as
access thereto through the Premises for the purposes of operation, maintenance,
alteration and repair, are hereby reserved to Landlord.  Landlord also reserves
the right at any time to change the arrangement or location of entrances,
passageways, doors, doorways, corridors, elevators, stairs, toilets and other
public parts of the Building, provided any such change does not permanently and
unreasonably obstruct Tenant's access to the Premises.  The exercise by Landlord
or its agents of any right reserved to Landlord in this paragraph shall not
constitute an actual or constructive eviction, in whole or in part, or entitle
Tenant to any abatement or diminution of Rent, or relieve Tenant from any of its
obligations under this Lease.

       (I)  Pay on demand Landlord's expenses, including reasonable attorneys'
fees, resulting from the breach by Tenant of, or incurred in enforcing any
obligation of Tenant under this Lease, or in curing any default by Tenant
hereunder.

       (J)  Forthwith cause to be discharged of record, by payment, bonding or
otherwise, any mechanic's lien at any time filed against the Premises or the
Building for any work, labor, services or materials claimed to have been
performed at or furnished to the Premises for or on behalf of Tenant or anyone
holding the Premises through or under Tenant.  Nothing contained in this Lease
shall be construed as a consent on the part of Landlord to subject Landlord's
estate in the Premises to any lien or liability under applicable law.

       (K)  Upon the expiration or other termination of the Term, quit and
surrender the Premises to Landlord, broom clean, in good order and condition,
ordinary wear and tear and casualty covered by Landlord's insurance excepted,
and at Tenant's expense, remove all property of Tenant and each alteration,
addition or improvement made by Tenant as to which Landlord shall have made the
election provided for in Section 2.3 hereof.  Tenant shall repair all damages to
the Premises caused by such removal and restore the Premises to the same
condition as existed prior to the installation of the items so removed.  Any
improvements


                                       28
<PAGE>   29

or installations required to be but not so removed shall be deemed to have been
abandoned by Tenant and may be retained or disposed of, as Landlord shall
desire.  However, Tenant shall be responsible for the cost of removal and
disposal and for restoration of the Premises.

       (L)  This Lease is and all of Tenant's rights hereunder are subject and
subordinate to any mortgages, security deeds or deeds of trust (collectively,
Mortgages) that now exist or may hereafter be placed upon the Building, the
Building Parcel or any part thereof and all advances made under any such
Mortgages and the interest thereon and all renewals, replacements, amendments,
modifications, consolidations and extensions thereof.  If any mortgagee succeeds
to Landlord's interest under this Lease by foreclosure or otherwise, Tenant will
attorn to such mortgagee and will recognize such mortgagee as Tenant's landlord
under this Lease.  Tenant shall execute and deliver, in recordable form,
whatever instruments may be required to acknowledge or further effectuate the
provisions of this paragraph.  This Lease shall also be subject and subordinate
to any ground or underlying (including operating) lease that may hereafter be
placed on the Building Parcel or the Building and all renewals, replacements,
modifications and extensions thereof, and Tenant shall attorn to the lessee
thereunder and recognize such lessee as Tenant's landlord under this Lease.
However, termination of any such lease shall not result in the termination of
this Lease nor of Tenant's obligations hereunder.

       (M)  Conform and cause its employees to conform to all reasonable rules
and regulations promulgated by Landlord for the management and use of the
Building and Auxiliary Areas.  Such rules and regulations shall be uniform and
shall not discriminate against Tenant or its employees.

       Section 7.2  Negative Covenants.
                    ------------------

       Tenant covenants at all times during the Term and such further time as
Tenant occupies the Premises or any part thereof:

       (A)  Tenant shall not use or occupy, or permit the use or occupancy of,
the Premises or any part thereof for any purpose other than for office purposes,
nor in any manner which shall adversely affect any services furnished by
Landlord to Tenant or to any other occupant of the Building.  Tenant shall not
injure, overload, deface or otherwise harm the Premises or any part thereof or
any equipment or installation therein.

       (B)  Tenant shall not make or perform, or permit the making or
performance of, any alterations, subdivisions, installations, decorations,
improvements, additions or other physical changes in or about the Premises,
including those necessary to satisfy any Governmental Requirement (referred to
collectively as "alterations"), without Landlord's prior consent.  Landlord
agrees not unreasonably to withhold its consent to any nonstructural alterations
proposed to be made by Tenant to adapt the Premises for Tenant's business
purposes.  All alterations shall be made at Tenant's sole cost and expense and
at such time and in such manner as Landlord may, from time to time, designate;
alterations shall be made only by contractors or mechanics approved by Landlord,
such approval not unreasonably to be withheld; all business machines and
mechanical equipment shall be placed and maintained by Tenant in settings
sufficient to absorb and prevent vibration, noise and annoyance to other
occupants of the Building; Tenant shall submit to Landlord detailed plans and
specifications for each proposed alteration and shall not commence any such
alteration without first obtaining Landlord's approval of such plans and
specifications; all permits, approvals and certificates required by all
Governmental Authorities shall be timely obtained by Tenant and submitted to
Landlord; notwithstanding Landlord's approval of plans and specifications for
any alteration, alterations shall be made and performed in full compliance with
all Governmental Requirements; all materials and equipment to be incorporated in
the Premises as a result of all alterations shall be new and first quality; no
such materials or equipment shall be subject to any lien, encumbrance, chattel
mortgage or title retention or security agreement.  In the event the cost of an


                                       29
<PAGE>   30

alteration exceeds the amount of three monthly installments of Fixed Rent,
Landlord shall have the right to require Tenant to obtain performance and labor
and material payment bonds from surety companies and in such forms as Landlord
shall require in amounts at least equal to the cost of the proposed work.

       (C)  Not to assign, sell, mortgage, pledge, or in any manner transfer
this Lease or any interest therein, or sublet the Premises or parts thereof or
grant "desk space" privileges or any concession.  A transfer or change in the
ownership of Tenant's or the Guarantor's stock or a change in the composition of
any noncorporate Tenant without, in either case, a legitimate business purposes
shall, unless such stock is publicly traded, be deemed an assignment.  Consent
by Landlord to an assignment, subletting, concession or license shall not be
construed to relieve Tenant from obtaining the express consent of Landlord to
any further assignment or subletting or to the granting of any concession or
license for the use of any part of the Premises; nor shall the collection of
Rent by Landlord from any assignee, subtenant or other occupant, after default
by Tenant, be deemed a waiver of this covenant or the acceptance of the
assignee, subtenant or occupant as Tenant or a release of Tenant from the
further performance by Tenant of the covenants of this Lease on Tenant's part to
be performed.

       Tenant may, in writing, request Landlord's consent to an assignment of
this Lease or a subletting of all (but not less than all) of the Premises
provided however, that (i) the proposed assignee or subtenant is not then (a) an
existing tenant or an Affiliate of an existing tenant in the Building or (b) a
person with whom Landlord is then negotiating, or has entered into negotiations
within the six months prior to Tenant's request for Landlord's consent, for
space in the Building and (ii) the rental rate for any subletting is no less
than the then going market rental rate (including Fixed Rent and Additional
Rent) for space in the Building which Landlord is then offering to Lease.  Such
request shall include the name of the proposed assignee or subtenant, a copy of
the proposed instruments relating to the transaction, certified financial
statements of the proposed assignee or subtenant and its officers, directors and
stockholders, and such information as to the financial responsibility, business
and standing of the proposed assignee or subtenant as Landlord may reasonably
require.  Upon receipt of such request and information from Tenant, Landlord
shall have the right, to be exercised in writing within thirty (30) days after
such receipt, to terminate this Lease, as of the date set forth in Landlord's
notice of its exercise of such right, which date of termination shall be not
less than sixty (60) nor more than one hundred twenty (120) days following the
service of Landlord's notice.

       (i)   In the event Landlord shall exercise such cancellation right,
Tenant shall surrender possession of the Premises on the date set forth in such
notice in accordance with the provisions of this Lease relating to surrender of
the Premises at the expiration of the Term. In no event shall the Premises be
subdivided or partially sublet nor any request made for permission to do so.

       (ii)  In the event that Landlord shall not exercise its right to cancel
this Lease as above provided, Landlord's consent to such request shall not be
unreasonably withheld, provided such sublease or assignment is effected by a
legal document in form and substance satisfactory to Landlord, and subparagraph
(iii) of this paragraph shall apply with respect to possible adjustment of
rentals.  In no event shall any assignment or subletting to which Landlord may
have consented relieve Tenant from its obligations to perform all of the terms,
covenants and conditions of this Lease on its part to be performed.

       (iii) If under an assignment or sublease consented to by Landlord the
rent, additional rent, other charges, and/or other consideration, money or thing
of value payable thereunder or payable in connection with the transaction exceed
the Rent provided in this Lease, Tenant or, at Landlord's option, the sublessee
or assignee shall pay said excess rent or other consideration to Landlord as
Additional Rent hereunder as and when the same becomes due under said assignment
or sublease.


                                       30
<PAGE>   31

       (iv)  If Tenant is a corporation, Tenant shall have the right, without
the consent of Landlord, to assign its interest in this Lease to a parent or
wholly owned subsidiary of Tenant or any corporation which is a successor to
Tenant either by merger or consolidation, or in connection with a public
offering of Tenant's stock, provided that the successor shall have a tangible
net worth, determined in accordance with accepted accounting standards, at least
equal to the tangible net worth of Tenant at the time of the transaction.
However, no such assignment shall be valid unless within ten (10) days prior to
the effective date thereof Tenant shall deliver to Landlord (a) a duplicate
original instrument of assignment, in form and substance satisfactory to
Landlord, duly executed by Tenant, (b) an instrument in form and substance
satisfactory to Landlord, duly executed by the assignee, in which such assignee
shall assume observance and performance of and agree to be personally bound by,
all of the terms, covenants and conditions of this Lease on Tenant's part to be
observed and performed and (c) evidence of compliance with the conditions of
this paragraph.

       (D)  Tenant shall have no right to affix any sign to the Premises or its
windows, or to any part of the common area or the Building unless and until the
sign has been approved by Landlord.  Landlord shall have the right, at Tenant's
expense, to remove any sign affixed by Tenant prior to such approval.

       (E)  Not to obstruct or encumber or use the common areas for any purpose
other than ingress and egress to and from the Premises.  Tenant shall not commit
or allow to be committed any waste upon the Premises, or any public or private
nuisance or other act or thing which disturbs the quiet enjoyment of any other
tenant in the Building.


       ARTICLE 8.   DESTRUCTION:   CONDEMNATION

       Section 8.1  Fire or Other Casualty.
                    ----------------------

       (A)  Tenant shall give prompt notice to Landlord in case of fire or other
damage to the Premises or the Building.

       (B)  If the Premises or the Building shall be damaged by fire or other
casualty, Landlord, at Landlord's expense, but only to the extent of the net
insurance proceeds available for such purpose, shall repair such damage.
However, Landlord shall have no obligation to repair any damage to, or to
replace, Tenant's leasehold improvements or betterments, furniture, furnishings,
decorations or any other installations made by Tenant.  If the Premises shall be
rendered untenantable by reason of any such damage, the Fixed Rent only shall
abate for the period from the date of such damage to the date when such damage
shall have been repaired by Landlord, and if only a part of the Premises shall
be so rendered untenantable, the Fixed Rent for such period shall abate in the
proportion which the part of the Premises rendered untenantable bears to the
total Premises.  However, if, prior to the date when all of such damage shall
have been repaired by Landlord, any part of the Premises so damaged shall be
rendered tenantable and shall be used or occupied by Tenant or Persons claiming
through or under Tenant, then the amount by which the Fixed Rent shall abate
shall be equitably apportioned for the period from the date of any such use or
occupancy to the date when Landlord shall have repaired all such damage.
Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this paragraph, if prior to or
during the Term, (i) the Premises shall be rendered wholly untenantable by fire
or other casualty and Landlord shall decide not to restore the Premises, or (ii)
the Building shall be so damaged by fire or other casualty that, in Landlord's
opinion, substantial alteration, demolition, or reconstruction of the Building
shall be required (whether or not the Premises shall have been rendered
untenantable), then, in either of such events, Landlord, at Landlord's option,
may give to Tenant, within ninety (90) days after such fire or other casualty, a
five (5) day notice of termination and, if such notice is given, this Lease and
the Term hereof shall come to an end (whether or not said Term shall have
commenced) upon the expiration of said five (5) days with the same effect as if
the date of expiration of said five (5) days were the expiration date of this


                                       31
<PAGE>   32

Lease.  In such event, the Rent shall be apportioned as of such date and any
prepaid portion of Rent for any period after such date shall be refunded to
Tenant.

       (C)  If this Lease shall not be terminated as above provided, Landlord
shall, at its expense, repair or restore the Premises with reasonable diligence
and dispatch to the condition obtaining immediately prior to the casualty,
except that Landlord shall not be required to repair or restore any of Tenant's
furniture, furnishings, decorations or any installations or alterations, as
defined in paragraph 7.2B, made by Tenant.  All insurance proceeds payable to
Tenant for such items shall be held in trust by Tenant and upon the completion
by Landlord of repair or restoration, Tenant shall prepare the Premises for
occupancy by Tenant in the manner obtaining immediately prior to the damage or
destruction, in accordance with the provisions of paragraph 7.2B.


       Section 8.2  Eminent Domain.
                    --------------

       (A)  If all or substantially all of the Building or the Premises shall be
acquired or condemned by eminent domain for any public or quasi-public use or
purpose, then this Lease and all rights of Tenant shall terminate as of the date
of title vesting in such proceeding.

       (B)  If part of the Building shall be acquired or condemned by eminent
domain for any public or quasi-public use or purpose, and such acquisition shall
affect a portion of the Premises or the access to same, then Landlord shall have
the option (i) to terminate this Lease as of the date of title vesting or (ii)
to repair and alter the Building, including the area leased to Tenant, and this
Lease shall not be affected thereby, except for proportional reduction of the
Fixed Rent if the leased area shall be diminished by such vesting.

       (C)  In case of any taking or condemnation, whether or not the Term of
this Lease shall terminate, the entire award shall be the property of Landlord,
and Tenant hereby assigns to Landlord all its right, title and interest in and
to any such award.  However, Tenant shall be entitled to claim, prove and
receive in the condemnation proceeding such awards as may be allowed for
fixtures and other equipment installed by Tenant, relocation and loss of Lease,
but only if such awards shall be made by the condemnation court in addition to
the award made by it for the land and the Building or part thereof so taken.

       (D)  In the case of any taking or condemnation, the current Fixed Rent
and Additional Rent shall be apportioned as of the date of vesting of title and,
if the Term of this Lease shall not have been terminated as of said date, Tenant
shall be entitled to a pro rata reduction in the Fixed Rent payable hereunder
based on the proportion which the floor area so taken bears to the entire floor
area of the Premises immediately prior to such taking.

       (E)  If this Lease is not terminated pursuant to the provisions of this
Section 8.2, Landlord shall, at its expense, but only to the extent of an
equitable proportion of the net award or other compensation (after deducting
legal and all other fees in connection with obtaining said award) for the
portion of the Building taken or conveyed (excluding any award for land), make
such repairs of alterations as are in Landlord's reasonable judgment necessary
to constitute the Building a complete architectural and tenantable unit.


       ARTICLE 9.   DEFAULTS AND REMEDIES

       Section 9.1  Default.  The occurrence, at any time prior to or during the
                    -------
Term, of any one of the following events shall constitute an "Event of Default":


                                       32
<PAGE>   33

       (A)  If Tenant shall default in the payment when due of any installment
of Fixed Rent or in the payment when due of any Additional Rent, and such
default shall continue for a period of ten (10) days after notice by Landlord to
Tenant of such default; or

       (B)  If Tenant shall default in the observance or performance of any
other term, covenant or condition of this Lease on Tenant's part to be observed
or performed and Tenant shall fail to remedy such default within twenty (20)
days after notice by Landlord to Tenant of such default; or if such default is
not capable of being cured within said twenty (20) day period, then if Tenant
shall fail to commence the cure within said period or shall not thereafter
diligently prosecute to completion all steps necessary to remedy such default;
or  if the Premises shall become vacant, deserted or abandoned; or if Tenant
shall assign or sublet the Premises in violation of Section 7.2 C.

       Upon the occurrence of any one or more such Events of Default, Landlord
may, at any time thereafter, give Tenant a five (5) day notice of termination of
this Lease and, in the event such notice is given, this Lease and the Term shall
come to an end (whether or not the Term shall have commenced) upon the
expiration of said five (5) days with the same effect as if the date of
expiration of said five (5) days were the expiration date of this Lease, but
Tenant shall remain liable for damages as herein provided.

       Section 9.2  Remedies of Landlord.
                    --------------------

       (A)  If this Lease shall have been terminated, or if Tenant shall default
in the payment of Rent or in the observance of any other term, condition or
covenant and such default is continuing, then, in any of such events, Landlord
may without notice, institute, in accordance with the laws and service of
process requirements of the State of Georgia, dispossess or unlawful detainer
proceedings, dispossess Tenant or other occupants of the Premises, and remove
their effects and hold the Premises as if this Lease had not been made.  Nothing
herein shall be deemed to require Landlord to give the notices herein provided
for prior to the commencement of a dispossess or unlawful detainer proceeding
for non-payment of Rent or a plenary action for the recovery of Rent on account
of any default in the payment of Rent, it being intended that such notices are
for the sole purpose of creating a conditional limitation hereunder pursuant to
which this Lease shall terminate and Tenant shall become a holdover Tenant.

       (B)  In case of any such default, re-entry, expiration and/or dispossess
or unlawful detainer proceedings or otherwise, in addition to any other remedy
now or hereafter available to Landlord, (i) the Rent shall become due thereupon
and be paid up to the time of such re-entry, dispossess and/or expiration; (ii)
Landlord may relet the Premises or any part thereof  for a term which may be
less than or exceed the period which would otherwise have constituted the
balance of the Term, and may grant concessions of free rent; and (iii) Tenant or
the legal representative of Tenant shall also pay Landlord, as damages for the
failure of Tenant to observe and perform Tenant's covenants herein contained,
for each month of the period which would otherwise have constituted the balance
of the Term, any deficiency between (x) the sum of (a) one monthly installment
of Fixed Rent and (b) any Additional Rent that would have been payable for the
month in question but for such re-entry or termination and (y) the net amount,
if any, of the rents collected on account of the lease or leases of the Premises
for each month of the period which would otherwise have constituted the balance
of the Term.  The reasonable refusal or failure of Landlord to relet the
Premises or any part thereof shall not release or affect Tenant's liability for
damages provided Landlord shall have made the same effort and on the same terms
to relet the Premises as with respect to other vacant space in the Building;
however, Landlord shall not be required to prefer the reletting of the Premises
over any other space in the Building.  In computing such damages there shall be
added to the said deficiency all expenses actually incurred by Landlord in
connection with the reletting, including court costs, attorneys' fees and
disbursements, the cost of alterations for a new tenant, brokerage fees, and the
cost of putting the Premises in good order and otherwise preparing same for
reletting.  Damages shall


                                       33
<PAGE>   34

be paid in monthly installments by Tenant on the rent day specified in this
Lease and any suit brought to collect the amount of the deficiency for any month
shall not prejudice the rights of Landlord to collect the deficiency for any
subsequent or prior month by a similar proceeding.  Landlord, at Landlord's
option, may make such alterations, repairs, replacements and/or decorations in
the Premises as Landlord considers advisable for the purpose of reletting the
Premises; and the making of such alterations and/or decorations shall not

                    ---------------------------------

Georgia shall govern the validity, performance and enforcement of this Lease.
The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of this Lease shall not
affect or impair any other provision.  The submission of this document to Tenant
for examination does not constitute an offer to lease, or a reservation of or
option to lease, and becomes effective only upon execution and delivery thereof

understandings between the parties are incorporated in this Lease.  Landlord or
Landlord's agents have made no representations or promises with respect to the
Building or the Premises, except as herein expressly set forth.  The headings of

available space in the Building of substantially equal area. Landlord hereby
agrees to bear the expense of such transfer and removal, as well as the expense

the new space, and such new space shall thereafter be deemed to be the Premises

work, aspects of which may involve areas in close proximity to the Premises.  If

made on any premises adjoining or above or below the Premises or on any other
portion of the Building, Tenant shall permit Landlord or the adjoining owner,
and their respective agents, employees, licensees and contractors, to enter the

                                       35
<PAGE>   36

so as to preclude entry thereto) and to do any act or thing necessary for the
safety or preservation of the Premises.  Tenant's obligations under this Lease

scaffolding or barricading.  Landlord shall not be liable in any such case for
any inconvenience, disturbance, loss of business or any other annoyance arising
from any such construction, excavation, shoring-up, scaffolding or barricades,
but Landlord shall use its best efforts so that such work will cause as little
inconvenience, annoyance and disturbance to Tenant as possible, consistent with
accepted construction practices in the vicinity, and so that such work shall be
expeditiously completed.

                     --------------------
and/or trust deed holder, by registered mail, a copy of any notice served upon
Landlord with respect to Landlord's default hereunder, provided that prior to

mortgagee and/or trust deed holder has commenced and is diligently pursuing the
remedies necessary to cure such default (including, but not limited to,
commencement of foreclosure proceedings, if necessary to effect such cure), in
which event this Lease shall not be terminated by Tenant while remedies are
being so diligently pursued.

       Section 10.8  Financing.  If any lending institution with which Landlord
                     ---------
has negotiated interim or long-term financing for the Building shall require
changes in this Lease as a condition of its approval of this Lease for such
financing, and if within thirty (30) days after notice from Landlord Tenant
fails or refuses to execute the amendment to this Lease accomplishing the
changes which are needed in connection with approval of this Lease for purposes
of such financing, then provided such amendment does not alter the business
terms herein set forth, detract from Tenant's rights hereunder, or impose
additional obligations upon Tenant, Landlord shall have the right to cancel this
Lease at any time prior to the commencement of Landlord's Additional Work.  In
the event of cancellation by Landlord hereunder, this Lease shall be null and
void with no further liability on the part of either party hereto.

                     -----------------------
obligations herein contained shall extend to, bind and inure to the benefit of
the parties hereto and their respective personal representatives, heirs,
successors and permitted assigns.  Each covenant, agreement, obligation or other
provision herein contained shall be deemed and construed as a separate and
independent covenant, not dependent on any other provision of this Lease unless
otherwise expressly provided.

       Section 10.11 Effect of Unavoidable Delays.  The provisions of this
                     ----------------------------
Section shall be applicable if there shall occur, during the Term or prior to
the commencement thereof, any (i) strikes(s), lockout(s) or labor dispute(s);
(ii) inability to obtain labor, materials, or reasonable substitutes therefor;
or (iii) acts of God, governmental restrictions, regulations or controls, enemy
or hostile governmental action, civil commotion, fire or other casualty, or
other conditions similar or dissimilar to those enumerated in this item (iii)
beyond the reasonable control of the party obligated to perform.  If Landlord or
Tenant shall, as the result of any of the above-described events, fail
punctually to perform any obligation on its part to be performed under this
Lease, then such failure shall be excused and not be a breach of this Lease by
the party in question, but only to the extent occasioned by such event.
Notwithstanding anything herein contained, however, the provisions of this
Section shall not be applicable to Tenant's obligations to pay Rent or its
obligations to pay any


                                       36
<PAGE>   37

other sums, moneys, costs, charges or expenses required to be paid by Tenant

instrument in writing signed by the party against whom enforcement of the

                      ------------------
provision is made that Landlord shall not unreasonably withhold or delay its
consent, Tenant's sole and only remedy for Landlord's breach of such agreement
shall be limited to an action for injunction or declaratory judgment and in no
event shall Landlord be liable for any damages to Tenant.

       Section 10.14  Invalid Provisions.  If any provision of this Lease is
                      ------------------
held unlawful or invalid, then this Lease shall continue in full force and
effect but such unlawful or invalid provision shall be deemed omitted.  If any
portion of Fixed or Additional Rent shall at any time be held to be higher than
the amount which Landlord may lawfully reserve, then the amount thereof shall be
reduced to the highest lawful amount.

       Section 10.15  Usufruct Only.  This Lease shall create the relationship
                      --------------
of landlord and tenant between Landlord and Tenant; no estate shall pass out of
Landlord, and Tenant has a usufruct which is not subject to levy and sale.

       IN WITNESS WHEREOF, Landlord and Tenant have hereunto executed this Lease

                  applicable notice or cure period at the time of exercise of
                  such right or at the commencement of the Extension Term, and

                  prior written notice of its desire to extend the Lease.
                  Within forty-five (45) days following receipt of Tenant's
                  notice, Landlord shall advise Tenant of Landlord's


                                      -56-
<PAGE>   57

                  Estimate of the Fair Market Value Rent (the "Landlord's
                  Estimate") for the Premises for the Extension Term.

          (iii)   The Fair Market Value Rent ("FMVR") shall be based upon the
                  rental rates for which comparable space in the Building is
                  then being leased; however, such rates shall be adjusted for
                  comparability with respect to the following factors: (a)
                  location (i.e., floor, view, access); (b) improvements (i.e.
                  quantity and quality of buildouts and customization for a
                  particular tenant); (c) renewals or relocations of existing
                  tenants; (d) size and configuration; and (e) any discounts,
                  allowances and any periods of free rent.  In the event that
                  Tenant does not agree with Landlord's Estimate as to the FMVR,
                  the parties may each choose a real estate broker with at least
                  ten years' experience and a familiarity with the Buckhead
                  submarket who will determine the FMVR.  In the event the two
                  brokers cannot come to an agreement as to the FMVR, the
                  brokers will choose a third broker with at least ten years'
                  experience and a familiarity with the Buckhead submarket,
                  whose decision will be final and binding upon the parties.

          (iv)    Tenant shall notify Landlord within fifteen (15) days after
                  receipt of Landlord's determination of FMVR of whether Tenant
                  elects to extend the Term of this Lease, it being understood
                  that failure of Tenant to so notify Landlord within said
                  fifteen (15) day period shall be deemed a waiver of Tenant's
                  right to extend the Lease.  If Tenant exercises its right to
                  extend, as aforesaid, then Landlord shall so notify Tenant and

Landlord under the terms of the Lease to dispossess Tenant from the Premises.

     (3)  Tenant agrees with Lender that if the interest of Landlord in the
Premises shall be transferred to and owned by Lender by reason of foreclosure or
other proceedings brought by it, or in any other manner, or shall be conveyed
thereafter by Lender or shall be conveyed pursuant to a foreclosure sale of the
Premises, Tenant shall, upon notice of receipt of such transfer of interest to
Lender, be bound to Lender under all of the terms, covenants and conditions of
the Lease for the balance of the term thereof remaining and any extensions or
renewals thereof which may be effected in accordance with any option therefor in
the Lease, with the same force and effect as if Lender were the landlord under
the Lease, and Tenant does hereby attorn to Lender as its landlord, said
attornment to be effective and self-operative without the execution of any
further instruments on the part of any of the parties hereto immediately upon
Lender succeeding to the interest of Landlord in the Premises.  Tenant agrees,
however, upon the election of and written demand by Lender to promptly execute
an instrument in confirmation of the foregoing provisions, reasonably
satisfactory to Lender, in which Tenant shall acknowledge such attornment and
shall set forth the terms and conditions of its tenancy.

     (4)  Tenant agrees with Lender that if Lender shall succeed to the interest
of Landlord under the Lease, Lender shall not be (a) liable for any action or
omission of any prior landlord under the Lease, except to the extent that such
action or omission continues after Lender succeeds to the interest of Landlord,
or (b) subject to any offsets or defenses which Tenant might have against any
prior landlord, or (c) bound by any security deposit which Tenant may have paid
to any prior landlord, unless such deposit is in an escrow fund available to
Lender, or (d) bound by an amendment or modification of the Lease not expressly
provided for in the Lease made without Lender's written consent, or (e) bound by
any notice of termination not provided for in the Lease given by Landlord to
Tenant without Lender's written consent thereto, or (f) personally liable under
the Lease, and Lender's liability under the Lease shall be limited to the
ownership interest of Lender in the Premises.  Tenant further agrees with Lender
that Tenant will not voluntarily subordinate the Lease to any lien or
encumbrance without Lender's written consent.

     (5)  In the event that Landlord shall default in the performance or
observance of any of the terms, conditions or agreements in the Lease, Tenant
shall give written notice thereof to Lender, and Lender shall have the right
(but not the obligation) to cure such default.  Tenant shall not take any action
with respect to such default under the Lease, including, without limitation, any
action in order to terminate, rescind or void the Lease or to withhold any
rental thereunder, for a period of 30 days after receipt of such written notice
by Lender with respect to any such default capable of being cured by the payment
of money and for a period of 45 days after receipt of such written notice by
Lender with respect to any other default (provided, that in the case of any
default which cannot be cured by the payment of money and cannot with diligence
be cured within such 45-day period because of the nature of such default or
because Lender requires time to obtain possession of the Premises in order to
cure the default, if Lender shall proceed promptly and proceed with reasonable
diligence to obtain possession of the Premises, where possession is required,
and to cure the same and thereafter shall prosecute the curing of such default
with diligence and continuity, then the time within which such default may be
cured shall be extended for such period as may be necessary to complete the
curing of the same with diligence and continuity).

     (6)  Landlord has agreed in the mortgages that the rentals payable under
the Lease shall be paid directly by Tenant to Lender upon the occurrence of a
default by landlord under the Mortgages. Accordingly, after notice is given by
Lender to Tenant that the rentals under the Lease should be paid to Lender,
Tenant shall pay to Lender, or in accordance with the directions of Lender, all
rentals and other moneys due and to become due to Landlord under the Lease.
Tenant shall have no responsibility to ascertain whether such demand by Lender
is permitted under the Mortgages. Landlord hereby waives any right, claim or
demand it may now or hereafter have against Tenant by reason of such payment to
Lender, and any such payment to Lender shall discharge the obligations of Tenant
to make such payment to Landlord.

     (7)  Tenant declares, agrees and acknowledges that:

          (i)   Lender, in making disbursements pursuant to any agreement
relating to the Loan, is under no obligation or duty to, nor has Lender
represented that it will, see to the application of such proceeds, and any
application or use of such proceeds for purposes other than those provided for
in such agreement shall not defeat at the subordination herein made in whole or
in part; and

          (ii)  It intentionally and unconditionally waives, relinquishes and
subordinates the Lease and its leasehold interest thereunder in favor of the
lien or charge of the Mortgages, and in consideration of this waiver,
relinquishment and subordination, specific loans and advances are being and will
be made by Lender to Landlord and, as part and parcel thereof, specific monetary
and other obligations are being and will be entered into by Landlord and Lender
which would not be made or entered into but for said reliance upon this waiver,
relinquishment and subordination.

Landlord's estate in the Premises by voluntary deed (or assignment) in lieu of
foreclosure; and the word "Lender" shall include the Lender herein specifically
named and any of its successors, participants and assigns, including anyone who
shall have succeeded to Landlord's interest in the Premises by, through or under

     (10) This Agreement shall be the whole and only agreement between the
parties hereto with regard to the subordination of the Lease and the leasehold
interest of Tenant thereunder to the lien or charge of the Mortgages in favor of
Lender, and shall supersede and control any prior agreements as to such, or any
subordination, including, but not limited to, those provisions, if any,
contained in the Lease, which provide for the subordination of the Lease and the
leasehold interest of Tenant thereunder to a deed or deeds of trust or to a
mortgage or mortgages to be thereafter executed, and shall not be modified or
amended and no provision herein shall be waived except in writing by the party
against which enforcement of any such modification or amendment is sought.

     The use of the neuter gender in this Agreement shall be deemed to include
any other gender, and words in the singular number shall be held to include the
plural, when the sense requires.  In the event any one or more of the provisions
of this Agreement shall for any reason be held to be invalid, illegal or
unenforceable in any respect, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability
shall not affect any other provision of this Agreement, but this Agreement shall
be construed as if such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision had never
been contained herein.  This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in
accordance with the laws of the State of ____________.
