Champaign, IL McKinley is pleased to announce that it has acquired Nantucket Cove, a 240 unit former distressed purpose built student housing asset with a plan to extensively renovate and convert it to a luxury apartment home community. The distressed asset, with a fundamentally flawed original concept, was selected as an opportunity for acquisition, repositioning and value creation utilizing McKinleys expertise with a comprehensive renovation and conversion plan. Formerly known as University Village, McKinley is pleased to have the opportunity to reposition this asset to a traditional apartment community which will best serve the needs of local employers, the University of Illinois faculty and staff as well as students. These large two, three, and four bedroom apartment homes following the completed renovation will offer unique floor plans providing excellent options for families that previously did not exist in this location. Nantucket Cove, as a luxury community is ideally located in the heart of great shopping and just a few short minutes from all that downtown Champaign has to offer.

Polsinelli, McKinleys Chief Real Estate Officer. This acquisition continues our long track record of creating value and enriching the quality of life in our communities.

Berriz, Chief Executive Officer, we are fortunate to work side by side with both The PrivateBank and Berkadia on Nantucket Cove.

Mr. Albert M. Berriz
McKinley & Associates
320 N. Main, LP
Ann Arbor, MI 48104

Dear Mr. Berriz:

Earlier this year the Huron Rowing Association (HRA) completed its 2013 Farmer's Market Parking Lot Fundraiser at 320 N. Main. As in past years, this is one of the teams most important fundraisers and we were able to raise $12,700 for Huron High School Crew.

As you know, through our agreement you have generously allowed the team to use the parking lot for our fundraiser on Saturdays. We charge Farmer's Market patrons $3.00 and vendors $5.00 to park in the lot. For Art Fair Patrons on Art Fair Saturday in July, and for U-M football patrons on game Saturdays, the fee is $10.00 per car.

Crew is the only sport offered in both the fall and spring seasons at Huron High School. It is open to both men and women. This past season the team won every event in which it competed. The team also sent three boats to the prestigious Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston in October. At the end of the previous season Huron Crew qualified four boats to the Scholastic Nationals Championship in Camden, NJ in May 2013 at which two of our boats earned bronze medals.

We are very proud to continue the tradition that all student athletes have the opportunity to row and race. The team also has one of the highest number of scholar-athletes (students earning a 3.2 or higher grade point average) of any sports at Huron. Crew now has the largest number of students participating in team sports at Huron (recently surpassing football) yet receives less than 15% of its budget from the Huron Athletic Department. The Association works to provide the majority of the operating budget (including a limited number of need-based scholarships) through fundraising and dues.

Huron Crew continues to grow, with over 90 rowers last fall - which represents over a 15% increase from the previous year. In today's challenging school budget climate it is difficult to find ways to keep athletics affordable for our students and we are pleased to have been able to keep our dues at the same rate in 2013 as we have for the past two years. The revenue generated this year at the parking lot was a critical part of our budget and has allowed many of our rowers an opportunity they may not otherwise have to participate in a high school varsity sport.

At the appropriate time following construction we would greatly appreciate your support to allow HRA to return to using the parking lot in 2014 for continued fundraising. Our sincerest thanks for your support. Please find along with the letter several pictures of the team in action this past year.

With best regards,

John Callewaert
HRA President
