  Best-in-Class Luxury Residential Community Offers Tremendous Investment
                 Opportunity in Heart of Downtown Tampa, FL

Tampa, FL– September 30, 2013 – Engler Financial Group (EFG), a prominent boutique investment
advisory and brokerage firm specializing exclusively in the luxury multifamily sector, was retained by
Related Group to market Pierhouse at Channelside, a best-in-class luxury apartment community located
in the heart of downtown Tampa, FL. The announcement was made by Greg Engler, Founder and CEO of
the Georgia-based EFG.

“Pierhouse at Channelside represents a tremendous opportunity to own an exceptional asset in
downtown Tampa. The market has experienced a substantial growth in rental rates, a trend expected to
continue over the next few years,” said Mr. Engler. “Pierhouse offers potential investors a well-located,
luxury, institutional-quality property in close proximity to many of Tampa’s major employment centers.”

Mr. Engler, along with Pat Jones from EFG’s headquarters office and Nick Husak, from EFG’s Tampa
operations, will spearhead the marketing of the asset. Widely recognized for delivering the highest
prices for their clients by utilizing the most powerful analytics and unsurpassed market knowledge, EFG
has set the benchmark in the industry by having successfully represented institutions, REITs and private
owners in the sale of apartment communities throughout the Southeast. In the past ten years alone the
firm has successfully sold 164 multifamily properties totaling approximately $7 billion.

Designed by MSA Architects and built in 2013, Pierhouse is a 356-unit luxury apartment community
ideally situated along Meridian Avenue in the heart of the vibrant Channelside District, one of
downtown Tampa’s most desirable and exciting submarkets. Comprised of four, four-story buildings,
Pierhouse enjoys spectacular city and water views and a nautical-themed urban linear park featuring
over $300,000 of outdoor art curated by the project’s landscape architect. The interiors and common
spaces were designed by world-renowned interior designers RTKL with unique touches throughout the
community. Among the many high-end amenities available at Pierhouse are a state-of-the-art, two-story
fitness center; a resort-style pool with stainless steel grilling areas and grotto-style spa; a clubhouse with
fireplace and flat screen TVs; a full catering kitchen; a gaming & billiards room, and multiple courtyards
with outdoor flatscreen TV’s, hammocks, and fire pits. The complex also has two, four-story precast
parking structures housing 625 parking spots.

The studios, one and two-bedroom apartments feature island kitchens with granite tops and under
cabinet lighting; Energy Star stainless steel appliances including full-size washer/dryer; imported 12″ by
24″ limestone-like tile flooring; spacious balconies; deep soaking tub in the master bedroom; and energy
efficient windows and sliding glass doors.

Pierhouse is at epicenter of Tampa’s largest employment concentrations, including the Central Business
District, Westshore District and the I-75 Corridor. Among the major employers with operations in the
area are Humana, IBM, PwC, Progressive, JP Morgan Chase, Tampa General Hospital, MacDill Air Force
Base and State Farm. “We believe Pierhouse is well poised to take advantage of the continued job
creation that comes from the high-profile companies that recognize the benefits of moving their
operations to downtown Tampa. So far in 2013, Tampa has experienced the creation of 41,000 new
jobs – the highest in the state of Florida,” concluded Mr. Engler.
