and a full-service hotel.

"CityPlace is an innovative development located at the nexus of Interstate-45,
Grand Parkway and the Hardy Toll Road. We anticipate that the new project will
make a lasting mark and will help shape Houston for future generations," said
Dean Patrinely, managing principal of Patrinely Group, the venture's managing
general partner. "CDC Houston, USAA Real Estate Company and Patrinely Group
are committed to making CityPlace the most accessible, premier 18-hour
destination in Houston."

Designed with a diverse mix of offerings, CityPlace will complement other
Springwoods Village developments including the new 10,000-person Exxon Mobil
corporate campus, which now has its first occupants; the 1,500-person
Southwestern Energy Company headquarters, which completes in December 2014;
and the recently announced CHI St. Luke's Health medical campus.

The initial office component phase of CityPlace development will include two
Class A office buildings with a combined total of 440,000 square feet of
office space for single or multi-tenant users, shopping and dining. The first
office building, a five-story structure, will offer a total of 147,000 square
feet with flexible 28,000-square-foot floor plates. The second structure, a
10-story office building, will have nearly 295,000 square feet of leasable
space and efficient floor plates that total 29,200 square feet.

Designed by Gensler and built by Harvey Builders, both buildings will be
located at the eastern end of CityPlace, near the full service hotel, public
plaza, and the lake and park system, just west of I-45. Each structure will
have 9'6" ceilings with floor-to-ceiling glass, private elevated terrace
garden areas, ground floor dining and shopping and an adjacent covered parking
structure and will achieve LEED Gold certification. The first building will be
delivered in the fourth quarter of 2015.

Patrinely Group has selected JLL as the exclusive office leasing agent for
CityPlace. JLL's Ronnie Deyo, Chrissy Wilson and Chris Dekker will lead the
leasing and marketing efforts. Transwestern Retail has been selected as the
leasing agent for the retail space in CityPlace. Transwestern's Nick
Hernandez, Chace Henke and Crystal Allen will lead the retail leasing efforts.

"CityPlace's location, at the new intersection of I-45, Grand Parkway and the
Hardy Toll Road, offers unparalleled access for corporations seeking to
operate in a highly accessible, self-contained, state-of-the-art environment
that connects nature and urbanism and is only 15 minutes from George Bush
Intercontinental Airport," said Chrissy Wilson, senior vice president of JLL.

In addition to the office, dining and shopping, Martin Fein Interests LTD.
will build a 268-unit, Class A multifamily apartment community within
CityPlace. The property will include retail space on the ground floor.
Additionally, Woodbine Development Corporation is developing a full service
hotel with expansive meeting space and amenities that will overlook the public
plaza and the lake and park system, as well as a Residence Inn by Marriott,
located on the western end of CityPlace.

"Patrinely's extensive development expertise and attention to detail, coupled
with USAA Real Estate Company's financial sponsorship, and CDC Houston's
well-designed, award winning master plan will ensure CityPlace Springwoods
Village will stand as one of Houston's premier urban communities," said Ronnie
Deyo, executive vice president of JLL. "It will offer the best of everything
and create a meeting place that people will be drawn to naturally."

"CityPlace is the heart and soul of Springwoods Village and an important next
step in the growth of the community and will provide amenities to those
already living and working in Springwoods Village," said Keith Simon,
executive vice president and director of development of CDC Houston.

CDC Houston is the creator of the Springwoods Village community. The company
has designed the development with a new model of sustainability to improve the
everyday life of its tenants, residents and the greater Houston business
community. While there are plans to make significant improvements at the site,
there is a dedicated focus on the preservation of the area's ecosystems and
the balance between nature, urbanism and diversity. Additional ongoing
developments in Springwoods Village include: The Belvedere luxury apartments,
the Audubon Grove and Harper Woods residential neighborhoods and a Marriott
Residence Inn, slated to start construction in July 2014.
