Update from Apts & Lofts + free Plasma TV !!!

November 27, 2007

Hi – I just got this – I believe all of us will get one of these emails/letters very soon ..  Great news – & the television is a very nice gesture!

Dear Buyer:

On behalf of Leonard Street Development LLC, we are writing to thank you for your purchase at 407-15 Leonard Street / Aqua Condominiums and to update you on the building’s construction and initial stages of the closing process.

Construction of the building is nearly 95% completed. Contractors are currently working to finish out the final phase of construction—by installing apartment finishes and appliances and putting the final touches on the lobby.

To begin closings, the property must obtain a Final Certificate of Occupancy, which is granted by passing a series of New York City Department of Buildings inspections. At this point in time the building has passed the following inspections:

•    Fire Alarm and Sprinkler
•    Electrical Systems
•    Plumbing Systems
•    Elevator

Additionally the following work has been completed:

•    Final Lobby Finishes
•    Landscaping & planting of trees on the sidewalk of the property
•    Final unit painting touch-ups
•    Final hardwood flooring finishing

The Sponsor is estimating the issuance of a Final Certificate of Occupancy by the New York City Department of Buildings within the next 3–5 weeks.

To begin the closing process, your sales agent or an representative will contact you in the upcoming days to schedule your preliminary walk-through. Walk-throughs will begin with seventh floor buyers and systematically end with first floor buyers.

In addition, as a token of appreciation for your continued patience as the final touches are added to the building, the sponsor would like to present each buyer with a 42” plasma television.
The television will be delivered to you shortly after you have closed on your new home.

We hope you find this news as exciting as we do as we are coming around the home stretch towards completion! If you have any questions, please contact either of us or your sales agent.
