HORSHAM, Pa. & LOS ANGELES -- April 17, 2013

Toll Brothers, Inc. (NYSE: TOL) (www.Tollbrothers.com), the nation’s leading
builder of luxury homes, through its Toll Brothers Apartment Living®
subsidiary, and AECOM Capital, the investment fund of AECOM Technology
Corporation (NYSE: ACM), a leading provider of professional technical and
management support services for public and private clients in more than 140
countries, announced today the launch of Provost Square, a 417-unit rental
apartment tower located in Jersey City, N.J. The project is expected to break
ground this spring with leasing projected to commence in early 2015.

The site at 160 Morgan Street is located in Jersey City’s historic Powerhouse
district, a one-block walk from the Grove Street PATH station, 10 minutes by
train from downtown Manhattan and 15 minutes from midtown. The project, which
will include in-building parking facilities and approximately 16,000 square
feet of ground floor retail space, is within walking distance of Jersey City’s
Restaurant Row, shops and other conveniences.

Toll Brothers Apartment Living® will oversee the building’s marketing, leasing
and property management. Tishman Construction Corporation, a wholly owned
AECOM subsidiary, with Toll Brothers City Living®, will oversee construction.
The project is being financed through a $120 million construction facility
from PNC Bank, National Association as administrative agent, Wells Fargo Bank,
National Association and Comerica Bank.

Provost Square is the first of a three-building complex planned for a total of
925 residential units. When complete, the complex will include an
approximately 24,000-square-foot, 550-seat performing arts center, 45,000
square feet of ground floor retail space, a 26,000-square-foot pedestrian
plaza and approximately 917 parking spaces. Toll Brothers currently owns the
two remaining sites, which are planned for development as condominiums.

Douglas C. Yearley Jr., Toll Brothers’ chief executive officer, stated: “We
are very pleased to be working with AECOM to kick off the Provost Square
project. AECOM’s diversity of expertise and reputation for excellence in the
real estate industry make it an ideal institutional-quality partner for a
project of this scale.”

John T. Livingston, chief executive of AECOM Capital, cited the ability of
AECOM’s Tishman team to manage construction of the development as one of the
many ways that AECOM can connect to projects through its comprehensive
portfolio of services. “We are excited to play an innovative role in the
development of Provost Square through our AECOM Capital investment fund, and
we look forward to a long and successful relationship with Toll Brothers,”
said Livingston.
