2.         City Council grant authority for the City, as owner of the Bayside Lands, to enter into a Land Development Agreement with Hines (LDA) that includes the disposition of the Bayside Lands  through agreements of purchase and sale (APSs), ground leases (GLs), rights of first offer (ROFOs), rights of first refusal (ROFRs) and may include ancillary agreements such as license, encroachment, easement, closing or other agreements contemplated under the LDA (collectively Ancillary Agreements), substantially on the terms and conditions set out in Attachment 1 in the report (August 10, 2010) from Deputy City Manager Richard Butts, together with such other terms and conditions as may be deemed appropriate by the Deputy City Manager whose responsibilities include Waterfront Revitalization, in consultation with the Chief Corporate Officer and in a form satisfactory to the City Solicitor, subject to Part 4 of this report (August 10, 2010) from Deputy City Manager Richard Butts.

 

3.         City Council require that prior to the City entering into the LDA:

b.         WT and Hines having entered into the Project Agreement (PA) and WT shall have provided an undertaking to the City  that WT will circulate all amendments to the PA and associated agreements and all amendments to any Development Agreements (DA) made between WT and Hines or any development partner of Hines (Site Developer), to the City for input on all matters which materially affect the City’s interest as owner of the Bayside Lands.

5.         City Council grant authority for the City, as lessor of the City-owned Sites currently anticipated to be the sites shown as C1 and C2 on Figure 1 (collectively the Lease Sites), to enter into GLs with Hines or a Site Developer, together with any Ancillary Agreement, substantially on the terms and conditions set out in Attachment 3 in the report (August 10, 2010) from Deputy City Manager Richard Butts together with such other terms and conditions as may be deemed appropriate by the Deputy City Manager whose responsibilities include Waterfront Revitalization in consultation with the Chief Corporate Officer and in a form satisfactory to the City Solicitor, subject to Part 7. of this Report.
