WHEREAS , the parties have agreed that neither a hotel nor a property with a time share or time interval form of ownership shall be developed on the Third Phase II Site (as defined in the Lease).

WHEREAS , Landlord desires to sell and convey the Third Phase II Site to a third party purchaser and Tenant has consented to Landlord’s sale and conveyance of the Third Phase II Site to said third party purchaser so long as said Third Phase II Site is not developed as a hotel or property with a time share or time interval form of ownership.

WHEREAS , Landlord and Tenant desire to amend the Lease and the RCREA to evidence Tenant’s consent to the sale and transfer of the Third Phase II Site, release the Third Phase II Site from any rights Tenant may have in and to the Third Phase II Site, subject to the terms and conditions contained herein.

NOW, THEREFORE , in consideration of the mutual and reciprocal covenants herein made, and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties hereby agree as follows:

1. Recitals . The Recitals as set forth above are agreed to be true and correct and are incorporated herein by this reference.

2. Release . Subject to Landlord’s satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 3 below, Tenant hereby forever fully discharges and releases the Third Phase II Site from and against any and all right, title or interest Tenant may have in or to the Third Phase II Site, including, without limitation, rights arising out of, or relating to, the Lease or RCREA or any other contracts, leases, rights to lease, rights to purchase, rights of first refusal, rights of first offer, options to lease, options to purchase, options to develop, options to occupy, easements, licenses, rents, profits, notices, filings with governmental authorities, reservations, entitlements and/or development rights.

3. Condition of Release / Grant of Restrictive Covenant .

4. Amendment to Lease and RCREA . Any and all references and provisions relating to the Third Phase II Site, the Third Phase II Property and Hotel Site F in the Lease and RCREA are hereby deleted in their entirety. All references in the Lease and RCREA to the Phase II Hotels shall no longer include the Third Phase II Property and all references in the Lease, RCREA and Partnership Agreement to the Phase II Sites shall no longer include Hotel Site F. Although all references to Hotel Site F have been deleted from the RCREA, the parties acknowledge and agree that the allocations with respect to the Infrastructure Costs set forth in Schedule 4.1 to the RCREA shall not change or be reallocated and, therefore, Landlord shall be responsible for the full cost of the Infrastructure Costs allocated to Hotel Site F pursuant to the RCREA. In addition, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 13.5(a) of the RCREA, the parties acknowledge and agree that URH shall have no right to elect to have an executive golf course located on the Phase II Sites.

5. Terms . Any term not defined herein shall have the definition ascribed to such term in the Lease.

6. Recording of Release . Landlord and Tenant agree that this Release shall be recorded in the Public Records of Orange County, Florida, to give notice thereof.

7. Continued Effect . Except as herein modified, the Lease and RCREA are in full force and effect and each party represents and warrants to the other that neither party is in default under the Lease and that no state of facts exists which, if continued, would create a default by the other party as of the date of this Release. In the event of any conflict between the Lease or the RCREA and this Release, this Release shall control.
