  2. 2. Overview On behalf of Phoenix Downtown Theatre, LLC (“PDT” or “Seller”), Cushman & Wakefield (“C&W”) is pleased to offer the opportunity for long-term control of the Dodge Theatre (“The Property”), a state-of-the-art live entertainment venue located at 400 West Washington Street in Phoenix, Arizona. Located in the heart of the Downtown area, this 178,000 square foot, 5-story venue seats up to 5,000 people and hosts concerts, Broadway shows, family stage events and boxing. It is one of the preeminent live entertainment venues in the Western United States and is easily accessible by the 10 and 17 freeways as well as a light rail stop just three blocks away. It is a recent addition to the vibrant Phoenix live entertainment scene, which already includes the 19,000-seat US Airways Center (home of the NBA Phoenix Suns and the WNBA Phoenix Mercury), the 48,500-seat Chase Field (home of the Arizona Diamondbacks), the intimate 1,400-seat Orpheum Theater as well as several other performance venues. Completed in 2002, the Dodge Theatre was developed pursuant to a Development and Operating Agreement with The City of Phoenix that gave Seller the right to both develop the Property and operate it as a live entertainment venue. A separate agreement also gives Seller the right to operate a majority of the adjacent 1,700-space parking garage during events at the theater. In addition, Seller entered into an agreement with Live Nation in 2006 to operate the theater. Live Nation Entertainment is the largest producer of live music concerts in the world, connecting over 52 million live music fans with live acts at approximately 22,000 events in 42 countries around the world. In its capacity as operator of the Dodge Theatre, Live Nation Entertainment handles all day-to-day operations of the theater, including securing performers for events, advertising events and procuring third party vendors to operate the various activities during events (which include concessions, merchandising and security). Its recent merger with Ticketmaster combines the leading concert business with the leading ticketing operator, creating a premier live entertainment giant that reaches over 60 “It is one of the preeminent live entertainment million fans. venues in the Western United States...”

Phoenix is a robust tourism market that offers more than 60,000 hotel rooms that accommodate 13 to 15 million visitors annually. The strength of Phoenix tourism is rooted in its climate which is temperate for nine months of the year, which allows for year round golf and other leisure activities.
  4. 4. A Thriving Market Exceptional lifestyle and career opportunities have made Greater Phoenix one of the most attractive areas in the country. Now the fifth largest metropolitan area in the United States, Phoenix has undergone a fundamental change as a result of significant technological advances. The area has grown from a humble western community to a highly developed and diverse community that is home to nearly 4.34 million residents. In addition to business-friendly characteristics such as projected population growth of 2.5% per year over the next 10 years and a diverse economic base poised for recovery, Metropolitan Phoenix is a thriving tourist destination. The strength of Phoenix tourism is rooted in its climate which is temperate for nine months of the year, allowing for year round golf and drives demand for the live entertainment industry. With a penchant for sports, Phoenix is one of 13 U.S. cities with franchises in all four major professional sports leagues: Phoenix Suns (NBA), Arizona Diamondbacks (MLB), Arizona Cardinals (NFL), and Phoenix Coyotes (NHL). In addition to sports, the live entertainment industry is buoyed by several performing arts venues in addition to The Dodge Theatre.
