City of Hoboken to SHG Hoboken Urban Renewal Arsoclstee' LLC Block I, Lot I - Hoboken, NJ NOTICE oF +TTICIPATqRV EREACH.
Dear Mr. Litwin:
SHG Floboken Urban Renewal Associates, LLC ("SHO") is in receipt of your lettcr dated August 11,2010, purporting to unilaterally terminate the Purehase and Sale Agreement, dated June 30, 2008 (the "PSA") and the Redeveloper's Agreunent, dated June 30, 2008 (the "RDA") by and between SHG rnd the City of Hoboken (the "City'') in regards to the City DPW garage property (Blook l, Lot l). The grounds upon which the City attempts to terminate thc PSA and thc RDA aro specious and lack any legal or factual basis. SHG at no time acted in bad faith or interfered with the City's obligation to obtain any and all environmental approvals. It is readily apparent that the City's eleventh hour attempt to terminate the PSA and RDA stems from the City's inability to meet its contractual requirements and satisfy all conditions prso€dent to closing, as sct forth in the PSA, including without limitatiorr delivery of the No Further Action letter from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Proteotion and vacation of the DPW garage ProPerty.
SHO is ready, willing and ablc to closc and, pursuant to the tsrms of the PSA, hae set an l:00 a.m. closing time for Friday, Auguet 13, 20I0 at our offices. Despite the City's attempted wrongful termination of the PSA and RDA, SHG will appear and will be ready, willing and able to clore, provided the City has satisfied all conditions precedent to closing' I
If the City fails to Rppear and fails to satis$r all conditions precedent to closing, it will be in breach of the PSA, and pursuant to Section 1s(bxii) of the PSA, SHG shall be entitled to and
