COVINGTON, La. & CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. -- January 16, 2013

CBL & Associates Properties, Inc., (NYSE: CBL) and Stirling Properties today
announced the formation of a 65/35 joint venture to develop Fremaux Town
Center in Slidell, Louisiana. Once complete, the 80+ acre site will consist of
two phases. Phase I will comprise approximately 295,000 square feet with
anchors, including Dick’s Sporting Goods, Michaels, T.J.Maxx, and Kohl’s.
Phase II will include up to 300,000 square feet of additional retail space.
Construction is set to begin on Phase I in March of this year, with the grand
opening scheduled for the second quarter of 2014.

“Stirling Properties has a solid reputation as a leading retail developer in
southern Louisiana, and we are pleased to partner with them on this project,”
said Michael Lebovitz, CBL’s Executive Vice President – Development and
Administration. “Fremaux Town Center is well-located and is already
well-leased with an outstanding retail line-up. We are looking forward to
announcing additional retailers as the development progresses.”

“Stirling Properties is excited about our partnership with CBL & Associates
Properties to develop Fremaux Town Center and believes that this joint venture
brings the best possible team together to build this project,” said Stirling
Properties’ Senior Vice President of Development, Townsend Underhill. “We
believe this site has the characteristics to become a premier retail shopping
destination, and we are happy to continue our long and successful history of
retail development in the City of Slidell.”

Fremaux Town Center Phase I is currently more than 70% leased with committed
retailers such as Dick’s Sporting Goods, Michaels, Kohl’s, PetSmart, T.J.Maxx,
LongHorn Steakhouse, dressbarn, ULTA Beauty, Lane Bryant, Rack Room Shoes,
Best Buy and Versona Accessories. Fremaux Town Center will be located on more
than 80 acres at the southwest corner of Interstate 10 and Fremaux Avenue in
Slidell, LA. Slidell is the largest municipality in St. Tammany Parish on the
northern shore of Lake Pontchartrain near the city of New Orleans. The area
has experienced significant growth following Hurricane Katrina. With its
interstate location and high-visibility, Fremaux Town Center is expected to
become a regional destination. Stirling will lead the development of the
project and CBL and Stirling will jointly lease and market the center.
