REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT ADVISORY AGREEMENT

A Real Estate Counsel, Inc. currently has a contractual service agreement with B Bank, [_____] which is in effect and expires June 30, 2006 (the “Prior Agreement”).

This Real Estate Investment Advisory Agreement (“Agreement”) by and between A Real Estate Counsel, Inc. (“A”) and B Bank [_____] (“B”) is effective July 15, 2002. This Agreement supersedes and replaces the Prior Agreement. The Prior Agreement shall govern the compensation and indemnification of A for periods prior to July 15, 2002.

WITNESSETH:

WHEREAS, B is the trustee of the B Bank [_____] Multi-Employer Property Trust (“Trust”) established and administered under the Amended and Restated Declaration of Trust dated October 6, [_____] (“Trust Agreement”);

WHEREAS, the Trust is a common trust fund for the collective investment in real estate-related investments (“Real Estate Investments”) of assets of retirement, pension or similar plans (“Participating Plans”); and

WHEREAS, B has determined that it is in the best interest of the Trust to engage A to provide the services set forth in this Agreement with respect to the acquisition, management and disposition by the Trust of interests in real property.

NOW, THEREFORE, the parties hereto hereby agree as follows:

1. Appointment: B hereby appoints A as an investment advisor to B with respect to the Trust and the Real Estate Investments.

2. Services:

(a) A shall advise B with respect to real estate and real estate-related investments now in the Trust and which B may wish in the future to make on behalf of the Trust.

(c) A shall, from time to time, present to B for its consideration Real Estate Investments which, based upon A’s preliminary investigation, are determined by A in good faith to meet the requirements of and to present an appropriate investment opportunity for the Trust. In reviewing potential properties, A shall consider whether (i) the potential investment would generate any unrelated business taxable income (“UBTI”) that would either cause any title holding corporation(s) to lose its/their federal or state tax-exempt status or would have to be recognized or realized by the Trust itself (as sole shareholder of the title holding corporations(s)), and (ii) whether any other contemplated Lawivities might adversely affect the tax-exempt status of the title holding corporation(s).

(d) On receipt of an executed Letter of Intent for a potential Real Estate Investment, A shall prepare an Investment Brief for presentation to the Trust Real Estate Investment Committee (or comparable committee within the Trust Department of B, which is established by B) (collective “TREIC”). The Investment Brief shall include sufficient information (project description, market analysis, risk/return considerations, financial analyses, transLawion structure, etc.) for TREIC’s consideration of the investment merit. Subject to B’ approval through TREIC, A shall complete all appropriate and necessary due diligence services, negotiations, and transaction documentation to effect the acquisition.

(e) On completion of negotiations and documentation, A shall present a recommendation to B inclusive of a description of any material changes to the transaction since submittal of the Investment Brief. Upon B’ approval of the recommendation, A shall cause the investment transaction to be consummated.

(f) A shall maintain appropriate records of the Real Estate Investments and of A’s Lawivities under this Agreement, which records shall be open to inspection by B or its authorized representatives at A’s office during normal business hours. A shall also prepare such periodic reports of its Lawivities and the Real Estate Investments as B may reasonably request.

(g) A shall recommend to B, subject to B’ approval, appraisers, insurance agents and attorneys whose services are necessary or appropriate to the acquisition, ownership, development, operation, and disposition of one or more of the Real Estate Investments, and B shall cause the Trust to pay such persons or entities under the terms of the agreements entered into by A with such persons or entities in the name of the Trust. A shall select and employ on behalf of the Trust agents, accountants, mortgage originators or servicers, lenders, technical advisors, brokers, leasing agents, underwriters, escrow agents, custodians, agents for collection, insurance agents, architects, engineers, construction consultants and managers, construction contractors and others whose services are necessary or appropriate to the acquisition, ownership, development, operation and disposition of one or more of the Real Estate Investments. B shall cause the Trust to pay, as directed by A, such persons or entities under the terms of the agreements entered into by A with such persons or entities in the name of the Trust.

(h) With respect to the disposition of Real Estate Investments, A shall provide such services and make such recommendations, as B shall reasonably request.

(i) A shall cooperate with and support B in its efforts to market the Trust to existing and prospective Participating Plans.

(j) A shall provide usual and customary commercial real estate asset management services in respect of the properties held by the Trust as Real Estate Investments, including, among other services, the leasing and re-negotiation of leases on the properties, the retention of Property Management firms, and such other usual and customary real estate asset management services as are normally provided by A in respect of real estate portfolios similar to the Trust. A shall provide such asset management services in respect of all Real Estate Investments in the Trust, including both new Real Estate Investments built or acquired by the Trust and “stabilized” Real Estate Investments that have been previously leased out.

(k) A shall provide other similar services within its area of expertise which B may reasonably request from time to time relating to the Trust, but this shall not include property management services which, if provided, shall be separately compensated.

3. Furnishing Information to A: B shall keep A informed with regard to the Real Estate Investments owned by the Trust, and the funds available or expected to be available for investment by the Trust. In addition, B shall provide A with a current list of all Participating Plans in the Trust. Upon request, B will provide A any additional information as necessary and appropriate for the purpose of A performing their functions.

4. Policy Board and Informational Material: B shall maintain a Policy Board for the Trust. The Policy Board shall have up to six members and such duties and
responsibilities as determined by B. For so long as this Agreement is in effect, two members of the Policy Board may be nominated by A. Each of the members of the Board shall be appointed by B and shall serve until he resigns or is replaced by B. Neither the appointment nor service by the Policy Board shall diminish B’ exclusive control over and authority to manage the Trust. All informational material distributed by B with respect to the Trust shall list the members of the Policy Board and identify any members who are employees of A to be such. In addition, all such informational material shall clearly disclose that A is the investment advisor to B with respect to the Trust and the Real Estate Investments and that B is the Trustee.

5. Custody of assets: A shall not have authority to retain possession of any assets of the Trust or any instruments (excepting duplicate originals thereof) evidencing the ownership of investments of the Trust.

All payments, distributions, and other transactions in cash or securities, whether with respect to the Trust or the assets thereof (including, without limitation, any rents or mortgage payments or receipts) shall be made directly to or from B. B is obligated to maintain the records required of MEPT. B represents that it is
currently a “qualified professional asset manager” (“QPAM”) as that term is defined in Prohibited TransLawion Exemption 84-14 and that it will notify A as soon as possible if it ceases to qualify as a QPAM.

6. Compliance with Laws, Regulations, Codes, Etcetera: A shall perform its duties and responsibilities under this Agreement in accordance with, and will be limited in the exercise of its rights by, the provisions of the [___] (“[_____]”) and all other applicable federal, state and local laws, ordinances, codes or regulations applicable to its duties and responsibilities, including without limitation identifying the appropriate required permits, certificates, approvals and inspections. If a charge of noncompliance with respect to any such laws, regulations or ordinances is brought against A, it shall promptly notify B of such charge in writing.

7. Confidentiality: A and B each agree that any information provided it or its employees by the other party or by persons Lawing for or on behalf of the other party concerning such other party or the Trust and which is not public information shall be treated as proprietary and confidential by the recipient and its employees. Such information shall not be divulged to any party except as described in the next sentence or used for any purpose other than for the management and administration of the Trust or the performances required by this Agreement. Each party and its employees may, in good faith, divulge fLawual information of the type described in this paragraph to regulatory authorities and the Participating Plans.. A shall keep B informed on a current basis, of information being communicated and divulged to any Participating Plan, without regard to whether such information is proprietary and confidential as described in this subsection. The provisions of this subsection regarding confidentiality shall survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement.

8. Solicitation of B’ Removal as Trustee: During the term of this Agreement, A shall not (a) request, encourage or solicit any Participating Plan to vote for or support the removal of B as the Trustee of the Trust, or the replacement of B by another trustee, or (b) request, encourage or solicit any Participating Plan to withdraw from the Trust; unless A in good faith reasonably believes that applicable law or fiduciary obligations requires it to do so; provided, however, that, other than a solicitation as described in items (a) or (b) above, nothing herein shall preclude A from communicating any information or concerns to Participating Plans or potential Participating Plans relating to the Trust that A reasonably and in good faith believes is required or appropriate to be disclosed to Participating Plans or potential Participating Plans by applicable law, the terms of the Declaration, or that is material or important information that is required or appropriate to be disclosed to an investor in the Trust under principles of good faith and fair dealing with investors, and no such communications shall be deemed to violate this Section 8.

9. Compensation: B shall solely be responsible for establishing the formula for calculating the fees B charges to the Trust Participants and may change those fees at any time. As of the effective date of this Agreement, the fees established by B were those shown in Appendix I to this Agreement. The provisions for compensating A under this Agreement are set forth in Appendix II to this Agreement. If B, in good faith and after consultation with A, determines that it should change the formula used for calculating the fees it charges to the Trust Participants, A’s compensation under this Agreement shall be changed proportionately on a prospective basis only.

The intent of this paragraph is that A shall be compensated solely by its fee.

11. Other Business of A: Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to restrict the right of A or its affiliates to Law and continue to Law as investment managers or advisors for other clients, nor shall this Agreement be deemed to restrict in any way the freedom of A or its affiliates to conduct any other business venture of any nature or to make investments for its investment account or the investment accounts of any other person or entity.

A shall indemnify and save harmless B from and against any and all claims, including all attorneys’ fees and other expenses reasonably incurred in the defense of any claim, asserted against B by reason of any Law or omission of A that (a) constituted a breach of this Agreement, bad faith, willful misfeasance, negligence or reckless disregard of its duties in the performance of services under this Agreement; or (b) constituted a violation of the duties imposed upon A as a fiduciary under [_____] (except to the extent that liability arises derivatively from the Laws or omissions of B) or a violation of any other federal or state law applicable to.
