8. Time for Performance; Delivery of Deed:

       The SELLER shall deliver the Unit Deed to the BUYER at the offices of Bradley Moore
Primason Cuffe & Weber; 85 Exchange Street, Lynn, or such other address in the City of Lynn as
SELLER shall establish by notice to the BUYER given at any time prior to the Closing Date (as
hereinafter defined), on the Closing Date established in accordance with this Paragraph 8.

              (a)    SELLER has advised BUYER herein of an estimated closing date, which is
                     DATE (the “Estimated Closing Date”).

              (b)    SELLER shall, by notice (the “Closing Notice”) to BUYER given no later
                     than five (5) days prior to the Estimated Closing Date, specify a definitive
                     closing date and time for closing (the “Closing Date”), which Closing Date
                     may be a business day no sooner than thirty (30) days before the Estimated
                     Closing Date nor later than one hundred twenty (120) days after the
                     Estimated Closing Date.

              (c)    If the SELLER shall be unable to give title or make conveyance, or to deliver
                     possession of the Unit, all as herein stipulated, or if at the time of the delivery
                     of the Unit Deed the Unit does not conform to the provisions hereof, the
                     SELLER shall use reasonable efforts to remove any defects in title or to
                     deliver possession as provided herein, or to make the Unit conform to the
                     provisions hereof, as the case may be, in no event, however, shall “reasonable
                     efforts” require the SELLER to incur expenditures which in the aggregate
                     would exceed, or reasonably could be anticipated to exceed $1,000,
                     excluding expenditures for attorneys' fees, in connection with such efforts, in
                     which event the SELLER shall give notice thereof to the BUYER and the
                     time for performance shall be extended to a business day designated by
                     SELLER not more than thirty (30) days beyond the Closing Date established
                     in accordance with subparagraph (b) above, except as a greater period may be
                     permitted in accordance with subparagraph 8(d) below.

              (d)    Notwithstanding the limitations set forth in this Paragraph 8, if one or more
                     force majeure events, as hereinafter defined, shall occur subsequent to the
                     date hereof, the time within which SELLER may designate the Closing Date,
                     or the Closing Date if then designated, shall be extended as hereinafter
                     provided one or more times for a period equal to the period delay caused by
                     such force majeure events. If one or more force majeure events shall occur
                     prior to the designation by SELLER of the Closing Date, which SELLER
                     believes may delay SELLER'S ability to designate the Closing Date within
                     the time limit set forth in subparagraph 8(b) hereof, SELLER shall give
                     notice to BUYER of the occurrence of such force majeure event(s) and the
                     aggregate delay caused or expected to be caused by such force majeure
                     event(s). The time limit set forth in Paragraph 8(b) hereof shall thereupon
                     automatically be extended for a period equal to the period of delay caused by
                     such force majeure event(s). Upon the occurrence of a force majeure event

                                           -3-                        BOS_Template P-S for web site.doc/TCULVER
                     after the designation by SELLER of the Closing Date, SELLER shall give
                     notice thereof to BUYER together with SELLER'S estimate of the probable
                     period of delay which will result therefrom. At the conclusion of such force
                     majeure event, SELLER shall give notice to BUYER of such conclusion and
                     shall, by notice to BUYER, designate a business day no earlier than ten (10)
                     days after such notice of the extended Closing Date. In no event shall the
                     aggregate period of such force majeure extensions exceed one hundred
                     twenty (120) days. As used herein, the term “ force majeure event” shall
                     mean any act of God, war, terrorism, civil commotion, embargo, riot, strike,
                     picketing, governmental restriction, unavailability or shortages of materials
                     or any similar event which is beyond the control of SELLER.

             (e)    At the end of any extension period, whether on account of a force majeure
                    event or otherwise, if SELLER remains unable to convey the Unit in
                    conformance with the Agreement, the BUYER may elect (i) to terminate this
                    Agreement, in which case the Deposit with interest thereon as set forth in
                    Paragraph 3 hereof shall be refunded or (ii) to accept the Unit Deed to the
                    Unit conveying such title as SELLER can convey to the Unit in its then
                    condition without deduction from the Purchase Price, in which case SELLER
                    shall convey such title or possession as SELLER may be able to deliver;
                    provided, however, that such election shall only be available to BUYER if
                    the Condominium shall have been created. SELLER'S obligations hereunder
                    to create the Condominium and to convey the Unit to BUYER are contingent
                    upon SELLER'S ability to complete construction of the Units and Common
                    Elements comprising the Condominium. Nothing contained herein shall be
                    construed as an undertaking by SELLER to so complete construction, the
                    sole and exclusive remedy at law and equity of BUYER in the event of
                    SELLER'S failure or inability to do so being the return of the Deposit as
                    provided in Paragraph 19 hereof.

             (f)     Time is of the essence of this Agreement.

9. Possession and Condition of Premises:

      Possession of the Unit, free of all tenants and occupants (except, if applicable, the BUYER
      and any parties claiming possession by, through or under BUYER), is to be delivered to and
      accepted by the BUYER on the Closing Date. On the Closing Date, the Unit, and the
      common areas of the Condominium providing access to the Unit shall be (a) not in record
      violation of any applicable building or zoning law of the City of Lynn; and (b) substantially
      completed (as evidenced by a Certificate of Occupancy (temporary or otherwise) from the
      City of Lynn) in accordance with the Standard Specifications set forth in Exhibit B attached

      BUYER shall have the right, at a reasonable time and by appointment with SELLER, to
      inspect the Unit within five (5) days prior to the Closing Date by giving SELLER oral or

                                           -4-                      BOS_Template P-S for web site.doc/TCULVER
       written notice of BUYER's election to inspect. After such inspection, if necessary, SELLER
       and BUYER shall prepare a punchlist of items that require completion in order to make the
       Unit conform to this Agreement (the “Punchlist”). SELLER hereby agrees to complete the
       work on the Punchlist as soon as practicable after the Closing Date, but in no event later
       than thirty (30) days after the date thereof. The Closing Date shall not be deferred for
       completion of the Punchlist and no escrow, holdback sum or security shall be required to
       insure completion of the Punchlist.

       The provisions of this Paragraph 9 shall survive the delivery of the Unit Deed hereunder.

10. Failure to Perfect title or Make Premises Conform:

       If at the expiration of the extended time the SELLER shall have failed so to remove any
       defects in title, deliver possession, or make the premises conform, as the case may be, all as
       herein agreed, or if at any time during the period of this agreement or any extension thereof,
       the organization of unit owners shall fail to agree, within the time period set forth in the Act,
       if applicable, to proceed with such repair or restoration as may be necessary for such
       purposes, or shall expressly agree not to so proceed, or the holder of a mortgage on the Unit
       shall refuse to permit any insurance proceeds to be used for such purpose, then any
       payments made under this agreement shall be forthwith refunded and all other obligations of
       the parties hereto shall cease and this agreement shall be void without recourse to the parties

11. Buyer’s Election to Accept Title:

       The BUYER shall have the election, at either the original or any extended time for
       performance, to accept such title as the SELLER can deliver to the said premises in their
       then condition and to pay therefore the purchase price without deduction, in which case the
       SELLER shall convey such title, except that in the event of such conveyance in accord with
       the provisions of this clause, if the said premises shall have been damaged by fire or casualty
       insured against by the organization of unit owners or by the SELLER, then the SELLER
       shall, on delivery of the deed, unless said premises have previously been restored to their
       former condition, pay over or assign to the BUYER all amounts recovered or recoverable by
       the SELLER on account of such insurance, and give the BUYER a credit against the
       purchase price equal to any amounts otherwise so recoverable which are retained by the
       holder of a mortgage on the Unit, less any amounts reasonably expended by the SELLER for
       any partial restoration.

12. Acceptance of Deed:

       The acceptance of a deed by the BUYER or his nominee as the case may be, shall be
       deemed to be a full performance and discharge of every agreement and obligation herein
       contained or expressed, except such as are, by the terms hereof, to be performed after the
       delivery of said deed.

                                            -5-                        BOS_Template P-S for web site.doc/TCULVER
13. Use of Purchase Money to Clear Title:

       To enable the SELLER to make conveyance as herein provided, the SELLER may, at the
       time of delivery of the deed, use the purchase money or any portion thereof to clear the title
       of any or all encumbrances or interests, provided that all instruments so procured are
       recorded simultaneously with the delivery of said deed, or within a reasonable time
       thereafter in accordance with local conveyancing practices.

14. Insurance:

       Until the recording of the Master Deed, the SELLER shall maintain fire and extended
       coverage insurance on the Condominium as now in force. Upon the premises becoming a
       condominium, it is intended that the Trustees of the Condominium Trust shall maintain
       master insurance policies covering the entire Condominium against loss by fire as set
       forth in the Condominium Trust and shall insure the Condominium Trust against public
       liability for occurrences in the Common Areas and Facilities of the Condominium. The
       cost of maintaining this insurance will be charged to the unit owners of the Condominium
       in accordance with their respective percentage interests. Such insurance coverage will not
       prohibit any unit owner from purchasing supplemental insurance, and may not cover the
       Unit's internal fixtures and alterations either fully or partially and will not cover contents
       of the Unit and liability for occurrences within the Unit. It is the responsibility of
       BUYER to obtain insurance policies covering the above matters at BUYER's sole cost
       and expense.

15. Evidence of Insurance:

       At the time of the delivery of the deed, the SELLER shall deliver to the BUYER a certificate
       of the Condominium insurance referred to in clause 15 as then in effect. The procuring of
       any supplemental insurance shall be at the option and sole expense of the BUYER.

16. Adjustment of Unassessed, Abated Taxes and Common Area Fees.

      In order to provide for the payment of real estate taxes during the period that the Unit is not
      separately taxed, but is taxed as part of the land and improvements to constitute the
      Condominium BUYER agrees to execute at Closing a letter agreement, in the form attached
      hereto as Exhibit A, and to perform his obligations thereunder until such time as the Unit is
      separately assessed. The appropriate dates will be provided in such letter agreement to
      reflect the actual Closing Date. If the BUYER shall obtain mortgage financing and the
      mortgagee will collect tax escrow payments from the BUYER, the BUYER shall use its best
      efforts to cause the Mortgagee to assent to the aforementioned letter agreement. The
      provisions of this Paragraph 16 shall survive delivery of the Unit Deed.

                                            -6-                        BOS_Template P-S for web site.doc/TCULVER
17. Broker’s Fee:

       A Broker’s fee for professional services of $X,XXX to Lawrence Shevick, of Kimball
       Borgo Real Estate; 717 Atlantic Ave, Suite 1B, Boston, MA 02111; lshevick@hotmail.com;
       (617) 426-8445 fax (617) 426-0439; AND $X,XXX to Onnelly Parslow, of Maxwell
       Associates; 107 South Boston Street; Suite # BA; Boston, Mass; 02111; 617.482.1239; fax:
       617.482.5040; onnelly@maxwell-associates.com; is due from the SELLER to the Brokers,
       only if, as and when title passes to BUYER, the deed is recorded with the appropriate
       Registry of Deeds, and not otherwise.

18. Broker(s) Warranty:

       The Broker(s) named herein, Lawrence Shevick & Onnelly Parslow, warrant(s) that he
       (they) is (are) duly licensed as such by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

19. Deposit:

       All deposits made hereunder shall be held in escrow by Kimball Borgo; 717 Atlantic Ave
       Suite 1B; Boston, MA; 02111; as escrow agent, in a non-interest bearing account subject to
       the terms of this agreement and shall be duly accounted for at the time for performance of
       this agreement. In the event of any disagreement between the parties, the escrow agent shall
       retain all deposits made under this agreement pending instructions mutually given in writing
       by the SELLER and the BUYER.

20. Buyer’s Default; Damages:

       If the BUYER shall fail to fulfill the BUYER’s agreements herein, all deposits made
       hereunder by the BUYER may be retained by the SELLER as liquidated damages and this
       shall be SELLER's sole & exclusive remedy at law and equity for any breach of this
       Agreement by BUYER. The Parties acknowledge and agree that Seller has no adequate
       remedy in the event of BUYER's default under this Agreement because it is impossible to
       compute exactly the damages which would accrue to SELLER in such event. Therefore,
       the Parties have taken these facts into account in setting the amount of the deposit
       hereunder and hereby agree that: (i) the deposit hereunder is the best estimate of such
       damages which would accrue to SELLER in the event of BUYER's default hereunder, (ii)
       said deposit represents damages and not a penalty against BUYER, and (iii) the Parties
       have had the benefit of counsel with regard to the provisions of this Paragraph 20.

21. Broker as a Party:

       The Broker(s) named herein join(s) in this agreement and become(s) a party hereto, insofar
       as any provisions of this agreement expressly apply to the Broker(s), and to any amendments
       or modifications of such provisions to which the Broker(s) agree(s) in writing.

                                          -7-                       BOS_Template P-S for web site.doc/TCULVER
22. Liability of Trustee, Shareholder, Beneficiary, etc.:

       If the SELLER or BUYER executes this agreement in a representative or fiduciary capacity,
       only the principal or the estate represented shall be bound, and neither the SELLER or
       BUYER so executing, nor any shareholder or beneficiary of any trust, shall be personally
       liable for any obligation, express or implied, hereunder.

23. Warranties and Representations:

       The Buyer acknowledges that the BUYER has not been influenced to enter into this
       transaction nor has he relied upon any warranties or representations not set forth or

                               TAX LETTER AGREEMENT

Dear Jane Doe:

       Today you have purchased Unit No. XXX of Exchange Street Lofts Condominium (the
“Condominium”) from Prodigy Plus, Inc. (the “SELLER”). Because the property comprising the
Condominium was submitted to Condominium status after the property tax assessments effective
January 1, the SELLER believes that the property will continue to be taxed under single
ownership rather than as separate condominium units, at least through fiscal year 2004, which
ends June 30, 2004. For fiscal year 2005, the City of Lynn will probably issue separate tax bills to
each unit owner, although we do not guaranty this.

        So long as the condominium property remains assessed under single ownership rather than
as separate units, you will receive from the SELLER or the Trustee of Exchange Street Lofts
Condominium Trust, four (4) times each year, a copy of the current tax bills, together with a bill to
you for your portion of the total tax bill based upon your unit's percentage of interest in the common
areas and facilities. Unless you are paying taxes into a tax escrow account held by an institutional
mortgagee of your unit which has assented to this letter, you will be required, and hereby agree, to
pay to the SELLER or to Exchange Street Lofts Condominium Trust your portion of the tax bill,
without any offset, to the party designated in the bill at least fifteen (15) days before payment is due
and payable to the City of Lynn without interest or penalty. The Condominium Trust or SELLER
shall make timely payment of the tax bill to the City of Lynn from and to the extent of the tax
payments made to them by the unit owners in the Condominium. Late payments by you will carry
interest at the rate of 14% per annum while such payments are outstanding, which you agree to pay,
together with any reasonable costs of collection, including without limitation attorneys' fees,
incurred in collecting your payment.

         It must be clearly understood that this obligation to pay taxes is independent of any other
fiscal affairs of the Condominium and that the method outlined in this letter of paying a single tax
bill (or bills) for the entire Condominium is for the benefit of the unit owners only.

                                             Sincerely yours,
                                             Prodigy Plus, Inc.

                                             By: ______________________________
