The previous owner of the site secured passage of a Planned Unit Development (PUD) ordinance allowing for the construction of up to 5.5 msf of new, mixed-use development within the ± 43 acre site. The master plan and site plan received approval from the City’s Urban Design and Architectural Advisory Panel (“UDAAP”), Site Plan Review Committee (“SPRC”) and Planning Commission in 2007. Use guidelines for the project were preliminarily approved by the City’s Planning Commission, and confirmed through the establishment of the Westport Overlay District in the Transform Baltimore legislation in 2017. With zoning in place, and massing and uses already entitled, individual building parcels are staged for final design approval through Baltimore City’s UDAAP, SPRC and Planning Commission. The project can be developed in multiple phases. Phase I is currently planned to include parcels identified in Areas I, II & III, shown on the Westport PUD plan with a mix of single and multifamily residential, street-level retail and office uses. With office buildings busy by day, and residential buildings busy at night, the first phase is designed to showcase a true “24/7” lifestyle from the start. Phase II is envisioned to start with Area IV to extend north from Wenburn Street, incorporating more dense commercial and office uses outlined in Areas IV and V on the PUD plan. Connecting the phases with a central boulevard and waterfront promenade will make The Waterfront at Westport a fully integrated, walkable community. Adding to its unique location and live-work-play ambiance is the unparalleled transit-oriented development connections offered by the adjacent light rail stop.

THE ULTIMATE MIX At The Waterfront, developers will unlock a carefully planned mix of retail, restaurants, hotels, commercial office space, apartments, condominiums and townhomes, at the forefront of environmentally friendly, mixed-use design. Westport’s master plan has been carefully developed over a 10-year period, and supported by a PUD and site- specific overlay district memorialized in the recently completed Transform Baltimore comprehensive zoning in 2017. The plan envisions a dynamic walkable and bikeable community with both single and multifamily residential, office, and street level restaurants and retail. This mix of properties will create lively streets and public spaces, with design guidelines that will ensure the harmonious development of each parcel to create a unique live-work-play community. ACCESS The site is in proximity to three interchanges at the Baltimore- Washington Parkway (MD Route-295) and I-95. The property is also adjacent to the existingWestport Light Rail station that connects Hunt Valley in the northern Baltimore suburbs with BWI Airport. Planned transportation improvements will enhance the Route 295 interchanges at the Waterview Avenue and Wenburn Street exits in Westport in the future, improving access to the site. Several planned streets will lead directly into the development including Clare, Manokin, and Wenburn Streets. Station upgrades will create direct access to the Light Rail for a quick ride to downtown, Camden Yards and BWI Airport. Westport has also been identified as the potential Northern Terminus of the planned $10B high speed “Maglev” train line from Baltimore to Washington, DC. Congress recently approved a $150M appropriation to the Maglev Deployment Program.
Westport Property Investments, LLC., an affiliate of Sagamore Development Holdings. investment highlights Set on the spectacular Middle Branch of the Patapsco River, a tranquil body of water adjacent to Baltimore’s famed Inner Harbor, The Waterfront offers investors and developers the opportunity to be an integral part of the next wave of Baltimore’s waterfront renaissance. With spectacular views of the downtown skyline and harbor, and easy access to MD 295, I-95 and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (“BWI Airport”), the ± 43 acre parcel is the jewel of hundreds of acres of former industrial property that is now being converted into a dynamic, mixed-use, transit-oriented waterfront district. LOCATION Known internationally for the Inner Harbor redevelopment that began Baltimore’s transformation in the 1980’s from a manufacturing port city to a major tourist destination, the region now boasts the third highest concentration of professional jobs in the United States. With Baltimore’s vibrant market fundamentals, including strong job growth, phenomenal demographics and major employment centers, it is not surprising it was recently named one of the “Hottest Startup Cities in the US” by Entrepreneur.com, and “#1 Best Rental Market for Millennials in the US” by RealtyTrac. SITE Less than two miles south of Baltimore’s Central Business District, The Waterfront represents one of the largest, single waterfront development opportunities in Baltimore’s history with ± 43 contiguous acres and 3,200 linear feet of waterfront. Nestled among more than 100-acres of parkland surrounding the Middle Branch, The Waterfront at Westport will also enjoy unique amenities including more than 10 miles of recreation trails around the Middle Branch; on-site kayak and crew boat launch; and access to the 15-mile Gwynns Falls Trail, the longest urban bike trail in the nation.

PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP Westport The Waterfront at Westport has enjoyed strong support from public and non-profit partners since its initial planning in the early 2000s. From required approvals to innovative public financing, City, State and Federal partners have facilitated financing and zoning to redevelop the site as a showcase for Smart Growth, Transit Oriented Development and sustainable “green” design. Baltimore City and the Maryland Economic Development Corporation have agreed to provide approximately $160M in Tax Increment Financing (TIF) proceeds to install state-of- the-art roads, utilities, waterfront improvements and public open spaces. The Owner’s full-time Senior Vice President of Impact Investments and Senior Legal Counsel is leveraging additional resources to improve the surrounding neighborhood and ensure that the adjoining community benefits from new investment. DEVELOPMENT TEAM The Owner is managed by Weller Management Company. Weller Management is affiliated with Weller Development Company, one of the most visionary development compa- nies in the Mid-Atlantic. They are responsible for the current development of Port Covington, an adjacent 177-acre mas- ter-planned 14 msf of world class mixed-use development. Port Covington has already completed the land acquisition, initial financing, and project entitlements. Horizontal devel- opment is underway and vertical construction is anticipated to commence in Q4 2019.

environmental Area II was being remediated by the prior developer through the Maryland Department of the Environment’s (MDE) Voluntary Clean- up Program (VCP). The Owner has been maintaining site protocols through MDE. The Purchaser would be responsible for capping the site pursuant to the Response Action Plan (RAP) and will receive a Certificate of Completion from the MDE which will be recorded as a deed restriction prior to pad delivery. Once complete, the cap will allow for residential use of the parcels. The cap requires three feet of clean fill in landscaped areas, two feet in paved areas and a concrete slab within building footprints. The Seller has received Inculpable Person (IP) status, which may transfer to future buyers. The Executive Summary of the Environmental Report is in The Waterfront data room. Supporting documentation to the Executive Summary will be provided during the Study Period. Wetlands Unlike the hard-edged bulkhead in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, Westport has been designed to include a “soft-edge” waterfront experience with floating habitat areas and wetlands. This design protects and enhances natural resources and will result in the placement of over five acres of land in a permanent forest conservation easement, the rebuilding and restoring of approximately 70,000 sf of wetlands and the creation of new habitat protection areas. The plan meets the State’s Critical Area requirements and the City’s forestation requirements, and will create a unique “living” promenade around the site, further enhancing its waterfront connection. Please see the wetlands boundary located on the PUD drawing 4 of 4, on the The Waterfront data room. FLOODPLAIN As mentioned above, once the mass grading is complete, Area II will be positioned to have finished first floor elevations above the revised 100-year FEMA tidal flood plain.

tax increment financing (tif) The Waterfront at Westport has received strong local and state support. This includes a commitment to issue approximately $160M in bonds through the use of Tax Increment Financing (TIF). The TIF ordinance assumes $90M in TIF proceeds will fund infrastructure and utility improvements including the construction of a new Main Street, extending fromWaterview Avenue to Clare Street, and the extension of Wenburn, Manokin and Clare Streets on to the site. TIF proceeds will also be used to construct bike paths, two new piers, 800 linear feet of promenade and bulkhead, and the re-creation of 900 linear feet of wetlands across the shoreline south of Wenburn Street. Please see a copy of the TIF ordinances introduced to Baltimore City Council on July 21, 2008 in The Waterfront data room. The legislation anticipates infrastructure improvements will be completed in two phases. Phase I construction of street and waterside infrastructure improvements will extend from Wenburn Street south to Waterview Avenue for Areas I, II and III. Phase II will extend from Wenburn Street north to Clare Street for Areas IV and V. Each parcel developer will then be responsible for site work within individual property lines. The Waterfront at Westport TIF also includes $10M for traffic improvements to the Baltimore-Washington Parkway/MD-295 interchanges at the Waterview Avenue and Wenburn Street exits in Westport. EASEMENTS
Public Pedestrian Access Corridor Easement locations of these easements are shown in the approved PUD drawings, provided in The Waterfront data room. A copy of the Title Reports dated 2008 are in The Waterfront data room. UTILITIES The entire development will benefit from new infrastructure, including water, sewer, storm water management, electric, natural gas, cable and telecommunications. The buyer must extend electrical and telecommunications ducts for Area II approximately 100 feet from the duct in Kent Street. Also in Area II, ducts must be extended through the alley to each residential unit. For a complete description of the utilities serving each parcel, see the STV letter dated April l2, 2008 in The Waterfront data room. ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN GUIDELINES The TIF budget in the approved legislation includes Westport Waterfront’s exterior common areas (streets, open spaces and esplanade), which are anticipated to have high quality design, materials and function, that will enhance the value of each development parcel. It is anticipated that the Architectural Design Review Committee established by the Owner will have final approval over the design, materials and function of the building.
There are several proposed easements:
Forest Conservation Easements totaling approximately 245,000 sf.
Public Pedestrian Waterfront Access Easement allowing the public to use the waterfront esplanade and piers located in Phase II.

STORMWATER MANAGEMENT There is an existing site Storm Water Management (SWM) master plan which will be approved by Baltimore City Department of Public Works (DPW) and the Chesapeake Bay Critical Area Commission prior to transfer or development. The SWM master plan is envisioned to utilize a combination of dry swales, bioretention facilities, green roofs, sand filter structures and the creation of pervious areas to improve the quality of stormwater run-off directly entering the Middle Branch. The buyer will be required to satisfy the pollutant removal requirements through the use of green roofs, sand filters, or other stormwater man- agement practices in accordance with the criteria established under the approved, overall site SWM master plan. ZONING The Waterfront at Westport’s rezoning ordinances were approved on June 5, 2017, changing the existing zoning from M-2-3 and M-2-1 to a Planned Unit Development known as the Middle Branch Waterfront Area Overlay Zone. The Westport PUD remains in effect, and has been updated to its current zoning of TOD-4 under Transform Baltimore.
MASTER DECLARATION The Master Declaration will include rules and regulations governing the responsibilities and operations for a high-quality, mixed-use develop- ment project typical for this size. Exterior Common Area Maintenance charges will be assessed to each of the parcels in the development. AFFORDABLE DWELLING UNITS &WORK-FORCE HOUSING Offers for mixed-income Area II should include at least 15% of all rent- al units for mixed-income renters. The mixed-income units should target the Average Median Income (AMI) for the Baltimore Region, as calculated each year by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development ($94,900 in 2018).
Please see zoning legislation in The Westport data room.

FINANCIAL INCENTIVES Federal Opportunity Zone (“The Zone”): The Waterfront has been designated by the State of Maryland as a designated Federal Opportunity Zone. The Zone was established as part of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (IRS code sub chapter Z), establishing a series of tax benefits for investors in The Zone. Such benefits include deferral of any capital gains invested under certain conditions, an increased basis at certain milestone points and exclusion of capital gains tax for appreciation of funds over a 10-year period. New Market Tax Credits: The Waterfront is located in a New Market Tax Credit-eligible district allowing projects to compete for below- market financing by meeting certain economic development and business and employment creation goals. Historically Underutlized Business (HUB) Zone: The Waterfront is located in a federally designated HUB Zone. As such, small businesses that locate in Westport may be eligible to receive federal contracting preferences. Westport is conveniently located between Fort Meade and the Aberdeen Proving Ground, which are expanding under the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) process. Base Realignment and Closure (“BRAC”) Revitalization and Incentive Zone: The BRAC program is used to focus growth in areas already designated for growth and provide local governments with financial assistance for public infrastructure in these well-defined areas. The program also aligns other state resources and programs to local governments and businesses located in the BRAC zones for a coordinated state effort on making the zones the focus of BRAC growth. The BRAC revitalization incentives offer property tax benefits based upon site specific infrastructure investments.
TRAFFIC AND PARKING A Transportation Impact Study (TIS) has already been completed by the Baltimore City Department of Transportation as part of the initial PUD process. The City will be forming a Middle Branch Transportation Management District to promote non-single occupant vehicle transit options including bicycling, walking, ride-sharing and public transit within the communities surrounding the Middle Branch. The impact fees will be utilized to further these initiatives. To encourage transit use, shared parking is allowed under the PUD for complementary uses. Developers must pay an additional fee of $1,000 for each parking space in excess of the PUD requirements. The Waterfront at Westport will be eligible to seek Transit Oriented Development (“TOD”) status by the Maryland Department of Transportation. TOD designation will produce eligibility for benefits in technical assistance, priority status for state project where appropriate and other state-supported programs. PARCEL DESCRIPTIONS The Owner is currently offering the Property in all or part, with Parcels L, M, N and Q (Area II) for immediate development. These four residential parcels will be the first undertaking and set the stage for the balance of development at The Waterfront at Westport. With more than 278 acres of new development slated for the Middle Branch in the next decade, the Baltimore City Planning Commission adopted the Middle Branch Master Plan in 2007 to help guide development along the entire Middle Branch and promote economic development that is balanced with the goal of restoring the ecology and neighborhoods of the Middle Branch estuary and waterfront.

Millennial Market trends Baltimore continues its transformation into a premiere 24/7 city, seamlessly blending new luxuries with its colorful, homegrown personality to create an environment that is attracting more affluent young professionals than ever. Millennials have changed the face of the multifamily market and set a new standard for apartment developers and cities alike. While they demand upscale amenities, they are also attracted to authenticity. Their desire to be a part of something new and innovative is driving the manner in which Baltimore is becoming a magnet for this demographic group. College-educated residents between the ages of 25 and 34 living within three miles of Baltimore’s Central Business District increased by a staggering 92% from 2000 to 2010, the fourth highest growth rate among 51 metro areas (The Baltimore Sun, 2014). Baltimore also experienced a 7.0% growth in its Millennial population from 2009 to 2013, more than double the national rate. The increase in millennial migration to Baltimore has continued at a strong pace in recent years.
OFFICE MARKET OVERVIEW The Harbor East/Harbor Point neighborhood features the largest collection of new construction mixed-use office, residential and retail to be delivered in Downtown Baltimore. Since its inception, the Harbor East/Harbor Point submarket has significantly outpaced the occupancy levels of Class A office space throughout downtown Baltimore. Additionally, the neighborhood has successfully drawn new retailers to downtown Baltimore and it is the only submarket that can be identified as “High Street Retail.” Tenants who have opened locations in Harbor East/Harbor Point neighborhood include: Whole Foods Market; Anthropologie; J. Crew; Arhaus; Under Armour Brand House; Lululemon Athletica; and Bonobos. Additionally, the neighborhood has successfully landed relocations of corporate headquarters and business units from all over the Baltimore Metropolitan area as well as out of state. multifamily Baltimore’s multifamily market has been undergoing a significant growth surge, particularly in waterfront locations and within the core downtown neighborhoods. New-build, Class Amultifamily properties in these locations are generally considered “core” assets for institutional investors. The multifamily market in the Fells Point/Harbor East neighborhood is highlighted by a significant number of luxury, “Class A” properties. Owners of these trophy assets represent some of the most prominent multifamily developers and investors in the Mid-Atlantic. From General Investments’ Crescent at Fells, to Bozzuto’s Liberty Harbor East, these assets have contributed to making the submarket one of Baltimore’s most desirable live-work-play neighborhoods. The strength of the market from an investment sales standpoint is highlighted by the 2015 sale of Bozzuto’s Union Wharf Apartments which sold at a 4.5% CAP rate for more than $430,000 per unit, indicative of what is possible in this location.
