  • 1. 1 Urban Resorts Development, L.P., is committed to a new concept in placemaking that will forever change the way residents, visitors and businesses in major metropolitan centers view life’s possibilities surrounding them. The vision is a bold and powerful one — to blend what is best about upscale multi-use developments in creating a new, world-class paradigm in development — the urban resort. ◆ At a total of two million square feet, the concept is designed to exceed expectations with luxury accommodations, residences and offices at the heart of each planned project. Market-driven amenities including a private club, luxury spa, entertainment and meeting facilities, vacation ownership options as well as fine dining and retail offerings will be woven in, as appropriate, to complement the whole. ◆ While many of these are elements seen in combination before, it is the synergy among the elements, the interaction of a variety of spaces within a stimulating environment and, ultimately, a level of service stemming from key strategic partnering that will create long-term market impact and interest in a given development and its surrounding neighborhood. ◆ This appeal will be used to launch multiple projects in some of the most affluent, dynamic cities in the world. The first will be in Houston, with others under consideration including Miami, Atlanta, Boston, San Diego, London and Berlin. Each is destined to become the new urban icon in its chosen place.

Brown and Reliant Park, that accommodate more than 37 million visitors to the city each year Luxury Partners, LLC, has selected Houston, the fourth largest city in the United States and one of the fastest growing in the nation, to introduce its first urban resort development concept to the world. Long known as the oil and gas capital of the world, Houston has grown to become economically diverse over the last decade. Industries such as biomedical services and research, aerospace technology, international trade services, insurance and financial services as well as information technology have contributed almost 90 percent of the city’s job growth since 1989 and now account for more than half of the city’s total employment. This economic diversity, along with the continuing expansion and upgrades of transportation systems and infrastructure bodes well for Houston’s future. Houston is a city of promise. More importantly, it is a city with a history of delivering on that promise through continuous efforts by public and private institutions to attract new businesses, celebrate cultural and economic diversity and offer a quality of life that is unobtainable in most other metropolitan markets. It is an ideal setting for a revolutionary new concept in urban development. H O U S T O N H I G H L I G H T S

W O R L D - C L A S S A R C H I T E C T U R E & D E S I G N As conceived by The Jerde Partnership, RivaPlace will make a bold statement of its own yet complement the world-class architecture that defines Houston. It will transform Post Oak Boulevard from a predominantly vehicular street into an entertainment and cultural catalyst, thereby becoming the centerpiece for the entire neighborhood. By blending classical design in a warm palate of colors with the contemporary, clean look that Uptown Houston is known for, RivaPlace will be marked by an air of casual sophistication and an undeniable sense of place. Twin cast stone and glass towers, one the hotel and the other condominiums, will pierce the sky and be fastened at the street level by an inclined, semi-circular one way avenue, Crescent Drive, onto which upscale shops, restaurants and entertainment venues will face. The tilting plane of the thoroughfare offers a dynamic visual experience, allowing for varied pedestrian and vehicular entrances, fountains and landscaping, and below-ground parking as well as a central courtyard. The change in elevation also affords the hotel’s porte cochere to become the centerpiece of the project. A covered arcade will reinforce the arc of the entry drive and add elegance to the entire complex. Buildings of various types and heights, trellises, signage and graphics will further stimulate the functionality, as well as the form, of this memorable city within a city.

This trend, especially among high-rise properties, is on the upswing, with several new residential projects currently underway in the neighborhood. According to American Metro/Study Corporation, RivaPlace will benefit from these planned luxury residences. In fact, the development could sustain: ◆ Sales pricing of $350 to $475 per square foot, with units ranging from 2,400 to 3,600 square feet; ◆ Penthouse unit sales of $500 to $550 per square foot; and ◆ Annual absorption rates of 50 to 60 units. 1

Many of those rooms, are located in Uptown. However, lack of available land makes it highly unlikely that many new hotels will be built in the neighborhood. It is expected that the hotel at RivaPlace will be successful in capturing existing demand from current competitors and creating new demand. Under the Rosewood’s strong management, a stabilized occupancy of 71 percent is projected for 2006. The hotel is projected to obtain an average daily rate of $371 in its second year of operation. In keeping with the Rosewood tradition, the hotel will become internationally acclaimed for its superior service and distinctive design. Featuring exquisite furnishings and fixtures in 175 oversized rooms, including 53 suites, the upper levels will contain approximately 100 condominium units, all of which, along with those in the adjacent tower, are for sale. Guest rooms will cater to high-end corporate guests and weekend leisure travelers with a full array of amenities and personalized services. To continue Rosewood’s legacy of fine dining, a 135-seat restaurant will undoubtedly rank among Texas’ finest. In-room dining and catering will be available 24 hours a day. 2 P R O J E C T E D H O T E L O C C U P A N C Y & R A T E YEAR OCCUPANCY RATE2 2004 65% $350 2005 68% $371 20061 71% $390 1 Stabilized year of operations 2 In constant 2000 dollars P R O J E C T D E T A I L S

As a vital component, it will allow members of one city location to use the facilities and services in all other cities in which the club is represented. Modeled after Rosewood’s venerable Crescent Club in Dallas, The City Club will be reminiscent of the renowned, private clubs of 19th century Europe and will be viewed as the best club in the city and region it serves. Members and guests will enjoy the finest privileges, dining and meeting facilities, amenities and unprecedented service within the surroundings of exotic woods, handcarved marble and stone, as well as subtle lighting, fresh flowers and delicate linens. Complete state-of-the-art health and fitness equipment and training will be available. An indoor swimming pool, steam and sauna facilities for men and women, a running track and recreational facilities, such as indoor tennis, squash, racquetball and basketball courts, will be available on premises. With an expected membership of approximately 500-1000 affluent individuals and families, use of all facilities will be restricted to members and, under certain circumstances, to hotel guests and tenants of the complex.

Therefore, Houston sets the stage for continued economic growth and as an ideal place to locate an office. Geared to cater to key decision makers, board members and Fortune 100 companies, the boutique offices at the RivaPlace will provide the privacy, security, comfort, elegance and convenience that its tenants desire. In addition, the unique combination of residential condominiums, offices and retail options will make working and living at RivaPlace convenient and desirable to many.

Its success as a shopper’s fashion paradise is attributed not only to the high quality and diversity of its retail mix but also to the spending power of its visitors. RivaPlace will reinforce this legacy with the addition of upscale boutiques, spanning more than 60,000 square feet. Based on the commitments of various internationally recognized retailers, RivaPlace’s marketplace will feature retailers such as Hermes, Chanel, Prada, Cartier and Gianni Versace.

It offers a variety of casual, fine and family dining to meet a wide variety of tastes and interests. To top off this tradition, RivaPlace will feature six of the most exquisite and delectable dining the region has ever experienced. Possible well-known restaurateurs might include Emeril’s and Wolfgang Puck’s Spago. Hotel guests, residents and executives will be able to savor the convenience of starting off their day or evening with the finest cuisine at a trendy and upscale restaurant, a charming bistro, an outdoor cafe or simply at the corner coffee shop, which are all just a step away.

With more than 40,000 square feet of planned entertainment space, RivaPlace will help bring the arts to Uptown. The complex might encompass a regional or national art gallery or luxury screening rooms, or serve as a small theatrical arts venue. 7 8 P R O J E C T D E T A I L S *Base rent upon which a negotiated percent of gross revenues would be applied.

To create a truly unique sense of place and reinforce the importance of the finest cuisine, Urban Resorts, in partnership with Rosewood Hotels and Resorts and a world-renowned culinary learning institution, will set the standard for higher-end food in Houston with the development of the Culinary Arts Center. Food enthusiasts and students looking to advance their skills will travel from all over the world just for the weekend or for a longer, more intense session to learn the art of fine dining as well as how to prepare the finest cuisine, taught by signature, nationally renowned chef instructors. The center also will be known for cultivating new talent within the culinary arts by hiring top students graduating from other established institutions and providing them with opportunities within RivaPlace to share and flourish their talents. The 5,000-square-foot center will be designed to meet the needs of its students and chefs with five to 10 private dining studios. Each studio will include a kitchen with leading-edge technology and an adjacent dining area/classroom. The center’s programs will be based on a hands-on approach to experiencing and learning the culinary arts.
