ARVIDA/JMB PARTNERS, L.P.
(A LIMITED PARTNERSHIP)

AND CONSOLIDATED VENTURES

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(1) OPERATIONS AND BASIS OF ACCOUNTING

Operations

The assets of Arvida/JMB Partners, L.P. (the "Partnership") have consisted principally of interests in land in the process of being developed into master-planned residential communities (the "Communities") and, to a lesser extent, commercial properties; accounts receivable; construction, brokerage and other support businesses; real estate assets held for investment and certain club and recreational facilities. The Partnership's Communities have contained a diversified product mix with both resort and primary homes designed for the middle and upper income segments of the various markets in which the Partnership operates.

Within the Communities, the Partnership has constructed, or caused to be constructed, a variety of products, including single-family homes, town- houses and condominiums to be developed for sale, as well as related commercial and recreational facilities. The Communities were located primarily throughout the State of Florida, with Communities also located near Atlanta, Georgia; and Highlands, North Carolina. Additional properties owned by the Partnership in or near its Communities have been or are being developed as retail and/or office properties. The Partnership has also owned or managed certain club and recreational facilities within certain of its Communities. In addition, the Partnership has sold individual residential lots and parcels of partially developed and undeveloped land. The third-party builders and developers to whom the Partnership has sold homesites and land parcels are generally smaller local builders who require project specific financing for their developments and whose operations have been more susceptible to fluctuations in the availability and terms of financing.

Pursuant to Section 5.5J of the Partnership Agreement, on October 23, 1997, the Board of Directors of the General Partner met and approved a resolution selecting the option set forth in Section 5.5J(i)(c) of the Partnership Agreement for the Partnership to commence an orderly liquidation of its remaining assets that is to be completed by October 2002.

Principles of Consolidation

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Partnership and its consolidated ventures. All material intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. The equity method of accounting has been applied in the accompanying consolidated financial statements with respect to those investments where the Partnership's ownership interest is 50% or less.

Recognition of Profit from Sales of Real Estate

For sales of real estate, profit is recognized in full when the collectability of the sales price is reasonably assured and the earnings process is virtually complete. When the sale does not meet the require- ments for recognition of income, profit is deferred until such requirements are met. In certain circumstances, contracts for sales of real estate contain provisions which allow the Partnership to repurchase the real estate in the event certain conditions are not met. Profits generated from sales subject to these provisions are generally deferred until the Partnership no longer has any repurchase rights. For sales of residential units, profit is recognized at the time of closing or if certain criteria are met, on the percentage-of-completion method.


Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported or disclosed in the financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Real Estate Inventories and Cost of Real Estate Revenues

Real estate inventories are carried at cost, including capitalized interest and property taxes. The total cost of land, land development and common costs are apportioned among the projects on the relative sales value method. Costs pertaining to the Partnership's housing, homesite, and land and property revenues reflect the cost of the acquired assets as well as development costs, construction costs, capitalized interest, capitalized real estate taxes and capitalized overhead. Certain marketing costs relating to housing projects, including exhibits and displays, and certain planning and other pre-development activities, excluding normal period expenses, are capitalized and charged to housing cost of revenues as related units are closed. Provisions for value impairment are recorded whenever the estimated future undiscounted cash flows from operations and projected net sales proceeds are less than the net carrying value plus estimated costs to complete development, as discussed in note 14. A warranty reserve is provided as residential units are closed. This reserve is reduced by the cost of subsequent work performed.

Capitalized Interest and Real Estate Taxes

Interest and real estate taxes are capitalized to qualifying assets, principally real estate inventories. Such capitalized interest and real estate taxes are charged to cost of revenues as sales of real estate inventories are recognized. Interest, including the amortization of loan fees, of $2,092,739, $3,663,552 and $6,020,204 was incurred for the years ended December 31, 2000, 1999 and 1998, respectively, all of which was capitalized. The decrease in interest incurred for the year ended December 31, 2000 as compared to 1999 is due to the decrease in the average outstanding debt balance. Interest payments, including amounts capitalized, of $1,970,443, $3,162,866 and $5,589,418 were made for the years ended December 31, 2000, 1999 and 1998, respectively.

Real estate taxes of $3,886,365, $3,362,265 and $5,127,075 were incurred for the years ended December 31, 2000, 1999 and 1998, respectively, of which $2,881,709, $1,901,589 and $2,632,163 were capitalized for the years ended December 31, 2000, 1999 and 1998, respectively. The decrease in real estate taxes incurred during 1999 as compared to 1998 is due to the Partnership receiving a credit from the Indian Trace Community Development District (the "District") towards its 1999 tax assessment resulting from interest earned by the District on construction reserves related to the District's improvement of land owned by the Partnership. Real estate tax payments of $3,908,090, $3,685,853 and $5,691,066 were made for the years ended December 31, 2000, 1999 and 1998, respectively. In addition, real estate tax reimbursements totaling $111,858, $278,139 and $543,796 were received from the Partnership's escrow agent during 2000, 1999 and 1998, respectively. The preceding analysis of real estate taxes does not include real estate taxes incurred or paid with respect to the Partnership's club facilities and other operating properties, as these taxes are included in cost of revenues for operating properties.

Property and Equipment and Other Assets

Property and equipment are carried at cost less accumulated depreciation and are depreciated on the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets, which range from two to twenty-five years. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred. Costs of major renewals and improvements which extend useful lives are capitalized.


Other assets are amortized on the straight-line method, which approximates the interest method, over the useful lives of the assets, which range from one to five years. Amortization of other assets, excluding loan origination fees, of approximately $450,000, $444,000 and $394,000 was recorded for the years ended December 31, 2000, 1999 and 1998, respectively. Amortization of loan origination fees, which is included in interest expense, of approximately $283,000, $366,000 and $351,000 was recorded for the years ended December 31, 2000, 1999 and 1998, respectively.

Investments in and Advances to Joint Ventures, Net

In general, the equity method of accounting has been applied in the accompanying consolidated financial statements with respect to those joint venture investments for which the Partnership does not have majority control and where the Partnership's ownership interest is 50% or less.

Investments in the remaining joint ventures are carried at the Partnership's proportionate share of the ventures' assets, net of their related liabilities and adjusted for any basis differences. Basis differences result from the purchase of interests at values which differ from the recorded cost of the Partnership's proportionate share of the joint ventures' net assets.

The Partnership periodically advances funds to the joint ventures in which it holds ownership interests when deemed necessary and economically justifiable. Such advances are generally interest bearing and are repayable to the Partnership from amounts earned through joint venture operations.

Equity Memberships

The amenities within certain of the Partnership's Communities are conveyed to the respective homeowners through the sale of equity memberships. Equity membership revenues and related cost of revenues are included in land and property in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations.

Interest Rate Swaps

The Partnership has entered into interest rate swap agreements to manage its exposure to market risks related to changes in interest rates associated with its variable rate debt under its credit facility. The interest-rate swap agreements are in effect with respect to approximately $19.2 million, which includes the portion of the term loan that has been prepaid. The swap agreements are amortized annually through the scheduled maturity of the term loan. These agreements involve the exchange of amounts based on fixed interest rates for amounts based on variable interest rates over the life of the loan without an exchange of the notional amount upon which the payments are based. The differential to be paid or received as interest rates change is calculated and paid monthly by the appropriate party. Such payments or receipts are recorded as adjustments to interest expense in the periods in which they are incurred.

Partnership Records

The Partnership's records are maintained on the accrual basis of accounting as adjusted for Federal income tax reporting purposes. The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared from such records after making appropriate adjustments where applicable to reflect the Partnership's accounts in accordance with GAAP and to consolidate the accounts of the ventures as described above. Such GAAP and consolidation adjustments are not reflected on the records of the Partnership. The net effect of these items is summarized as follows:

Reference is made to note 13 for further discussion of the allocation of profits and losses to the General Partner, Associate Limited Partners and Holders of Interests.

The net income per Interest is based upon the average number of Interests outstanding during each period.

Reclassifications

Certain reclassifications have been made to the 1999 and 1998 financial statements to conform to the 2000 presentation.

Income Taxes

No provision for state or Federal income taxes has been made as the liability for such taxes is that of the partners rather than the Partnership. However, in certain instances, the Partnership has been required under applicable state law to remit directly to the state tax authorities amounts representing withholding on applicable taxable income allocated to the General Partner, Associate Limited Partners and Holders of Interests. Such payments on behalf of the Holders of Interests are deemed distributions to them. The cash distributions per Interest made during the years ended December 31, 2000, 1999 and 1998 include $.05, $.08 and $.06, respectively, which represent each Holder of Interests' share of a North Carolina non-resident withholding tax paid directly to the state tax authorities on behalf of the Holders of Interests for the 2000, 1999 and 1998 tax years, respectively.

(2) INVESTMENT PROPERTIES

The Partnership's Communities still under development are in various stages, with estimated remaining build-outs ranging from one to two years. Notwithstanding the estimated duration of the remaining build-outs, the Partnership currently expects to complete an orderly liquidation of its remaining assets by October 2002 with a winding up and final distribution of any residual funds in 2004. The Weston Community, located in Broward County, Florida is the Partnership's largest Community and is in its late- stage of development. The Water's Edge Community in Atlanta, Georgia and the Cullasaja Club near Highlands, North Carolina were sold out and closed during 2000. The Partnership assigned its remaining interest in the equity club memberships for the Broken Sound Club back to the club in 2000, and terminated its interest in this project in connection with the settlement of certain litigation. The Partnership's condominium project on Longboat Key, Florida known as Arvida's Grand Bay was completed in 1999, and all units were sold and closed by January 2000. The Jacksonville Golf & Country Club and the River Hills Country Club Communities in Florida are in their final stages of development. Only builder units remain to be sold at Jacksonville Golf & Country Club at December 31, 2000.

Reference is made to Note 7 for a discussion regarding the sale of the Partnership's assets in the Cullasaja Club Community. Reference is made to Note 14 for a discussion regarding the sale of the Partnership's assets in the Water's Edge Community. Reference is made to Item 3. Legal Proceedings for a discussion of the Partnership's assignment of its remaining interest in the Broken Sound Club in connection with the settlement of certain litigation.


(3) CASH, CASH EQUIVALENTS AND RESTRICTED CASH

Cash and cash equivalents may consist of U.S. Government obligations with original maturities of three months or less, money market demand accounts and repurchase agreements, the cost of which approximated market value. At December 31, 2000, 1999 and 1998, no funds were invested in treasury bills. Included in Restricted cash are amounts restricted under various escrow agreements as well as cash which collateralizes letters of credit as discussed in note 7. Credit risk associated with cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash is considered low due to the high quality of the financial institutions in which these assets are held.

Depreciation expense of approximately $2,456,000, $2,581,000 and $2,965,000 was incurred for the years ended December 31, 2000, 1999 and 1998, respectively.

The increase in Construction in progress at December 31, 2000 as compared to 1999 is due primarily to the ongoing construction of The Shoppes of Town Center in Weston (see related discussion in Note 7).

The Partnership's share of net income is based upon its ownership interest in investments in joint ventures which are accounted for in accordance with the equity method of accounting. Equity in earnings of unconsolidated ventures represents the Partnership's share of each venture's net income, and may reflect a component of purchase price adjustments included in the Partnership's basis. Such adjustments are generally amortized to income in relation to the cost of revenue of the underlying real estate assets. These factors contribute to the differential in the Partnership's proportionate share of the net income or loss of the joint ventures and its Equity in earnings of unconsolidated ventures as well as to the basis differential between the Partnership's investments in joint ventures and its equity in underlying net assets, as shown above.

There are certain risks associated with the Partnership's investments made through joint ventures including the possibility that the Partnership's joint venture partners in an investment might become unable or unwilling to fulfill their financial or other obligations, or that such joint venture partners may have economic or business interests or goals that are inconsistent with those of the Partnership. In addition, under certain circumstances, either pursuant to the joint venture agreements or due to the Partnership's obligations as a general partner, the Partnership may be required to make additional cash advances or contributions to certain of the ventures.

In December 1999, the Partnership sold its interest in the Arvida Corporate Park joint venture to its venture partner for approximately $3.7 million. This sale is reflected in Land and property revenues and cost of revenues on the accompanying consolidated statements of operations for 1999.

During the second quarter of 2000, the Partnership received an approximate $0.1 million distribution from the Tampa 301 Associates Joint Venture. The amount distributed was in excess of the Partnership's carrying value of its investment in this joint venture, and was therefore recorded directly to Equity in earnings of unconsolidated ventures as of December 31, 2000.

During the first quarter of 1999, the Partnership received an approximate $0.6 million distribution from the Tampa 301 Associates Joint Venture. The amount distributed was in excess of the Partnership's carrying value of its investment in this joint venture. The recognition of income related to this excess distribution is the primary cause for the increase in equity in earnings of unconsolidated ventures in 1999 as compared to 1998 and the decrease in equity in earnings of unconsolidated ventures for 2000 as compared to 1999.

In March 1999, the Arvida Pompano Associates Joint Venture closed on the sale of its commercial/industrial property on an "as is" basis to an unaffiliated third party for a sales price of $2.9 million. The net closing proceeds totalling approximately $2.7 million were disbursed to the joint venture's lender in full satisfaction of the remaining balance outstanding on the mortgage loan encumbering the property. As a result of the property's sale, the joint venture and the Partnership have no further obligation to the purchaser to fund costs related to the environmental clean-up of this property. With respect to the environmental issues, the clean-up, which began in July 1994, is in a "monitoring only" phase pursuant to an informal arrangement with state environmental officials. There are no assurances that further clean-up will not be required. If further action is required and the previous owner is unable to fulfill all its obligations as they relate to this environmental matter, the joint venture and ultimately the Partnership may be obligated to the State of Florida for such costs. Should this occur, the Partnership does not anticipate the cost of this clean-up to be material to its operations.


In January 1998, the Partnership sold its interest in the H.A.E. Joint Venture to one of its venture partners for a sale price of approximately $1.7 million. This sale is reflected in Land and property revenues and cost of revenues on the accompanying consolidated statements of operations for 1998.

                                             ===========    ===========

(A) On July 31, 1997, the Partnership obtained a new credit facility from certain banks with Barnett Bank, N.A. ("Barnett") being the primary agent on the facility. The credit facility consisted of a $75 million term loan, a $20 million revolving line of credit and a $5 million letter of credit facility and matures on July 31, 2001. The remaining balance on the term loan was paid off in December 2000. Prior to September 1, 1998, interest on the facility was based, at the Partnership's option, on the relevant LIBOR plus 2.25% per annum or Barnett's prime rate. Loan origination fees totaling 1% of the total facility were paid by the Partnership upon the closing of the loan. Such fees have been capitalized and have been amortized to interest expense over the life of the loan. The amounts outstanding under the revolving line of credit and letter of credit facility are secured by recorded mortgages on the real property of the Partnership (including certain of its consolidated ventures) and pledges of certain other assets. The credit facility also required that certain financial covenants such as loan-to-value, net worth and debt ratios be maintained throughout the loan term. All of the loans under this facility were cross-collateralized and cross-defaulted.

The Partnership has interest rate swap agreements that are still in effect with respect to approximately $19.2 million of the term loan. The interest rate swap agreements fixed the interest rates under the term loan at 8.02% and 7.84% with respect to $12,500,000 and $6,666,667 of the term loan, respectively, and amortize in conjunction with the scheduled loan repayments. These agreements expire on July 31, 2001. The letter of credit facility has an outstanding balance of approximately $287,300. The Partnership also has approximately $2.3 million of letters of credit outstanding with a previous lender, all of which are cash collateralized. For the year ended December 31, 2000, the combined effective interest rate for the Partnership's credit facilities, including the amortization of loan origination fees, and the effect of the interest rate swap agreements was approximately 9.78% per annum.


(B) In March 2000, the Partnership closed on the sale of the remaining lots at The Cullasaja Club Community, as well as its remaining equity memberships in the Cullasaja Club to the Cullasaja Club, Inc. and Cullasaja Realty Development, Inc. for a total sales price of approximately $3.0 million. In addition, indebtedness owed to unaffiliated third party lenders, as well as related accrued interest, was extinguished in conjunction with this sale, as the payment of such principal and interest was contingent upon net cash flows generated from the Cullasaja Community. Such cash flows were not achieved, and as a result, the Partnership recorded an extraordinary gain related to the extinguishment of debt of approximately $6.2 million, as reflected on the accompanying consolidated statements of operations. This transaction resulted in a gain for financial reporting purposes and a loss for Federal income tax reporting purposes and also contributed to the decrease in Equity Memberships, Accrued expenses and other liabilities, and Notes and mortgages payable on the accompanying consolidated balance sheets at December 31, 2000 as compared to 1999.

(C) In May 2000, the Partnership closed on a $20 million loan with First Union National Bank for the development and construction of The Shoppes of Town Center in Weston, a mixed use retail/office plaza consisting of approximately 158,000 net leasable square feet. The loan was made to an indirect, majority-owned subsidiary of the Partnership, and the Partnership has guaranteed the obligations of the borrower, subject to a reduction in the guarantee upon the satisfaction of certain conditions. Interest on the loan is payable monthly based on the relevant LIBOR rate plus 1.8% per annum during the first year of the loan. Thereafter, subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, including, among other things, the lien-free completion of construction of the retail/office plaza by June 1, 2001, the maturity date for the loan would be extended for two years and payments of principal and interest would be due on the loan based upon a 25-year loan amortization schedule. The loan may be prepaid in whole or in part at any time, provided that the borrower pays any costs or expenses of the lender incurred as a result of a prepayment on a date other than the last day of a LIBOR interest period. Construction of The Shoppes of Town Center in Weston began in March 2000 and is the primary cause for the increase in Property and equipment on the accompanying consolidated balance sheets at December 31, 2000 as compared to December 31, 1999, as well as the increase in Additions to property and equipment on the accompanying consolidated statement of cash flows for the year ended December 31, 2000 as compared to 1999 and 1998. Construction is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2001. The Partnership has requested modification to the loan for an extension of the one year period for completion of construction currently required under the loan, and the lender has requested that certain conditions be satisfied before agreeing to such modification. The Partnership expects the loan will be modified. In the absence of such modification, the Partnership would be required to repay the loan on June 1, 2001. Currently, the property is approximately 79% pre-leased to tenants.

(8) EQUITY MEMBERSHIPS

Equity memberships represent the accumulation of costs incurred in constructing club houses, golf courses, tennis courts and various other related assets, less amounts allocated to memberships sold. These amenities are conveyed to homeowners through the sale of equity memberships.

The decrease in Equity memberships at December 31, 2000 as compared to December 31, 1999 is primarily due to the sale of The Cullasaja Club Community equity memberships in March 2000. (See Note 7.)

The Partnership receives reimbursements from or reimburses other affiliates of the General Partner engaged in real estate activities for certain general and administrative costs including, and without limitation, salary and salary-related costs relating to work performed by employees of the Partnership and certain out-of-pocket expenditures incurred on behalf of such affiliates. For the year ended December 31, 2000, the amount of such costs incurred by the Partnership on behalf of these affiliates totaled approximately $523,700. Approximately $46,700 was outstanding at December 31, 2000, all of which was received as of March 9, 2001. For the years ended December 31, 1999 and 1998, the Partnership was entitled to receive reimbursements of approximately $807,100 and $1,855,000, respectively.

In November 1997, The St. Joe Company completed its acquisition of a majority interest in St. Joe/Arvida Company, L.P. ("St. Joe/Arvida"), which acquired the major assets of Arvida Company ("Arvida"). The transaction did not involve the sale of any assets of the Partnership, nor the sale of the General Partner's interest in the Partnership. In connection with this transaction, Arvida entered into a sub-management agreement with St. Joe/Arvida, effective January 1, 1998, whereby St. Joe/Arvida provides (and is reimbursed for) a substantial portion of the development and management supervisory and advisory services (and personnel with respect thereto) to the Partnership that Arvida would otherwise provide pursuant to its management agreement with the Partnership. Effective January 1, 1998, St. Joe/Arvida employed most of the same personnel previously employed by Arvida, and the services provided to the Partnership pursuant to this sub- management agreement generally have been provided by the same personnel. St. Joe/Arvida is reimbursed for such services and personnel on the same basis as Arvida under the management agreement, and such reimbursements are made directly by the Partnership. Affiliates of JMB Realty Corporation own a minority interest in St. Joe/Arvida.

For the years ended December 31, 2000 and 1999, the Partnership reimbursed St. Joe/Arvida or its affiliates approximately $4,666,000 and $4,545,000, respectively, for the services provided to the Partnership by St. Joe/Arvida personnel pursuant to the sub-management agreement discussed above. In addition, at December 31, 2000, the Partnership owed St. Joe/Arvida approximately $123,000 for general and administrative costs pursuant to the sub-management agreement including, and without limitation, salary and salary-related costs relating to work performed by employees of St. Joe/Arvida on behalf of the Partnership, all of which was paid as of March 9, 2001. The Partnership also receives reimbursement from St. Joe/Arvida for certain general and administrative costs including, and without limitation, salary and salary-related costs relating to work performed by employees of the Partnership on behalf of St. Joe/Arvida. For the years ended December 31, 2000 and 1999, the Partnership received approximately $1,086,700 and $1,340,800, respectively, from St. Joe/Arvida or its affiliates. In addition, $449,000 was owed to the Partnership at December 31, 2000, all of which was received as of March 9, 2001.


The Partnership pays for certain general and administrative costs on behalf of its clubs, homeowners associations and maintenance associations (including salary and salary-related costs and legal fees). The Partnership receives reimbursements from these entities for such costs. For the year ended December 31, 2000, the Partnership was entitled to receive approximately $1,001,000 from these entities. At December 31, 2000, approximately $82,500 was owed to the Partnership, of which approximately $71,500 was received as of March 9, 2001. For the years ended December 31, 1999 and 1998, the Partnership was entitled to reimbursements of approximately $1,260,700 and $1,321,000, respectively, from these entities.

The Partnership, pursuant to certain agreements, provides management and other personnel and services to certain of its equity clubs and homeowners associations. Pursuant to these agreements, the Partnership is entitled to receive management fees for the services provided to these entities. For the years ended December 31, 2000, 1999 and 1998, the Partnership was entitled to receive approximately $455,200, $988,200 and $1,396,600, respectively. At December 31, 2000, approximately $26,600 was owed to the Partnership, none of which was received as of March 9, 2001.

The Partnership funds operating deficits of its homeowners associations as required or deemed necessary. The funding of operating deficits is expensed by the Partnership. For the year ended December 31, 2000, the Partnership was entitled to receive approximately $5,700, of which approximately $3,200 was owed to the Partnership at December 31, 2000, none of which was received as of March 9, 2001.

In February 2000, the General Partner and Associate Limited Partners, collectively, received cash distributions in the aggregate amount of $13,638,944. Such amount included approximately $1,259,000 previously deferred by the General Partner and Associate Limited Partners, collectively, out of their share of the August 1997 distribution in connection with the settlement of certain litigation, as well as approximately $6,306,000 of the total $12,541,500 that had previously been deferred pursuant to the terms of the Partnership Agreement. In April and May 2000, distributions of approximately $23,100 were paid or deemed paid to the General Partner and Associate Limited Partners, including approximately $18,900 of net cash flow distributions that had previously been deferred pursuant to the terms of the Partnership Agreement. In August 2000, a distribution of approximately $8,030,000 was made to the General Partner and Associate Limited Partners which included the remaining amount of net cash flow distributions that had previously been deferred of approximately $6,216,600.

See Note 10 "Commitments and contingencies" for a discussion of the settlement agreement in the Council of Villages and Savoy cases reached in July 2000.

(10) COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

As security for performance of certain development obligations, the Partnership is contingently liable under standby letters of credit and bonds for approximately $287,300 and $18,019,600, respectively, at December 31, 2000. In addition, certain joint ventures in which the Partnership holds an interest are also contingently liable under bonds for approximately $311,300 at December 31, 2000.


The Partnership leases certain building space for its management offices, sales offices and other facilities, as well as certain equipment. The building and equipment leases expire over the next one to four years. Minimum future rental commitments under non-cancelable operating leases having a remaining term in excess of one year as of December 31, 2000 are as follows:

2001. . . . . . . . . . . . .      $1,327,080
2002. . . . . . . . . . . . .         461,614

                                   ==========

Rental expense of $1,493,349, $1,698,529 and $2,206,337 was incurred for the years ended December 31, 2000, 1999 and 1998, respectively. The decrease in rent expense for 1999 as compared to 1998 is primarily due to the sale of the Partnership's resale brokerage operations in Weston, Sawgrass and Boca Raton in June 1999.

The Partnership was named a defendant in a number of homeowner lawsuits, certain of which purported to be class actions, that allegedly in part arose out of or related to Hurricane Andrew, which on August 24, 1992 resulted in damage to a former community development known as Country Walk.

The homeowner lawsuits alleged, among other things, that the damage suffered by the plaintiffs' homes and/or condominiums within Country Walk was beyond what could have been reasonably expected from the hurricane and/or was a result of the defendants' alleged defective design, construction, inspection and/or other improper conduct in connection with the development, construction and sales of such homes and condominiums, including alleged building code violations. The various plaintiffs sought varying and, in some cases, unspecified amounts of compensatory damages and other relief.

Several of these lawsuits alleged that the Partnership was liable, among other reasons, as a result of its own alleged acts of misconduct or as a result of the Partnership's alleged assumption of Arvida Corporation's liabilities in connection with the Partnership's purchase of Arvida Corporation's assets from Disney in 1987, which included certain assets related to the Country Walk development. Pursuant to the agreement to purchase such assets, the Partnership obtained indemnification by Disney for certain liabilities relating to facts or circumstances arising or occurring prior to the closing of the Partnership's purchase of the assets.

Over 80% of the Arvida-built homes in Country Walk were built prior to the Partnership's ownership of the Community. The Partnership tendered each of the above-described lawsuits to Disney for defense and indemnification in whole or in part pursuant to the Partnership's indemnification rights. Where appropriate, the Partnership also tendered these lawsuits to its various insurance carriers for defense and coverage. The Partnership is unable to determine at this time to what extent damages in these lawsuits, if any, against the Partnership, as well as the Partnership's cost of investigating and defending the lawsuits, will ultimately be recoverable by the Partnership either pursuant to its rights of indemnification by Disney or under contracts of insurance.


One of the Partnership's insurance carriers has been funding settlements of various litigation related to Hurricane Andrew. In some, but not all, instances, the insurance carrier has provided the Partnership with written reservation of rights letters. The aggregate amount of the settlements funded to date by this carrier is approximately $9.93 million. The insurance carrier that funded these settlements pursuant to certain reservations of rights has stated its position that it has done so pursuant to various non-waiver agreements. The carrier's position was that these non-waiver agreements permitted the carrier to fund settlements without preventing the carrier from raising insurance coverage issues or waiving such coverage issues. On May 23, 1995, the insurance carrier rescinded the various non-waiver agreements currently in effect regarding the remainder of the Hurricane Andrew litigation, allegedly without waiving any future coverage defenses, conditions, limitations, or rights. For this and other reasons, the extent to which the insurance carrier may recover any of these proceeds from the Partnership is uncertain. Therefore, the accompanying consolidated financial statements do not reflect any accrual related to this matter.

Currently, the Partnership is a defendant in one remaining insurance subrogation matter. On or about May 10, 1996, a subrogation claim entitled Juarez v. Arvida Corporation et al. was filed in the Circuit Court of the Eleventh Judicial Circuit in and for Dade County. Plaintiffs filed this suit for the use and benefit of American Reliance Insurance Company ("American Reliance"). In this suit, plaintiffs seek to recover damages, pre-and post-judgment interest, costs and any other relief the Court may deem just and proper in connection with $3,200,000 American Reliance allegedly paid on specified claims at Country Walk in the wake of Hurricane Andrew. Disney is also a defendant in this suit. The Partnership is advised that the amount of this claim that allegedly relates to units it sold is approximately $350,000. The Partnership is being defended by one of its insurance carriers. Due to the uncertainty of the outcome of this subrogation action, the accompanying consolidated financial statements do not reflect any accruals related to this matter.

The Partnership has been named a defendant in a purported class action entitled Lakes of the Meadow Village Homes, Condominium Nos. One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven, Eight and Nine Maintenance Associates, Inc., v. Arvida/JMB Partners, L.P. and Walt Disney World Company, Case No. 95- 23003-CA-08, filed in the Circuit Court of the Eleventh Judicial Circuit in and for Dade County, Florida. The original complaint was filed on or about November 27, 1995 and an amended complaint, which purports to be a class action, was filed on or about February 28, 1997. In the case, plaintiffs seek damages, attorneys' fees and costs on behalf of the 460 building units they allegedly represent for, among other things, alleged damages discovered in the course of making Hurricane Andrew repairs. Plaintiffs allege that Walt Disney World Company is responsible for liabilities that may arise in connection with approximately 80% of the buildings at the Lakes of the Meadow Village Homes and that the Partnership is potentially liable for the approximately 20% remaining amount of the buildings. In the three count amended complaint, plaintiffs allege breach of building codes and breach of implied warranties. In addition, plaintiffs seek rescission and cancellation of various general releases obtained by the Partnership in the course of the turnover of the Community to the residents. Previously, the trial court had granted the Partnership summary judgment against the plaintiffs' claims, based on the releases obtained by the Partnership. The ruling was reversed on appeal, the appellate court finding that there were issues of material fact, which precluded the entry of judgment for the Partnership, and the case was remanded to the trial court for further proceedings. On or about April 9, 1999, plaintiffs supplied a budget estimate for repairs of the alleged defects and damages based on a limited survey of nine buildings, only, out of a total of 115 buildings. Based on this limited survey and assuming that the same alleged defects and damages


show up with the same frequency in the entire 460 buildings, plaintiffs estimate the total repairs to cost approximately $7.0 million. Based on the allegations of the amended complaint, it would appear plaintiffs would seek to hold the Partnership responsible for approximately $1.4 million of this amount. Discovery in this litigation is in its early stages. The Partnership has not had an opportunity to examine all of the buildings nor fully assess the alleged merits of the plaintiffs' report. The Partnership is currently being defended by counsel for one of its insurance carriers. The Partnership has agreed in principle to settle the claims brought in connection with Lakes of the Meadows Village Homes Condominium No. 8 Maintenance Association, Inc. for a payment of $155,000 to be funded by one of the Partnership's insurance carriers. The Partnership can give no assurance that the settlement will be consummated. In the event the settlement is not consummated, the Partnership intends to vigorously defend itself against the claims of this condominium association, as well as those made by the other associations, by, among other things, pursuing its defenses of release.

In 1994, the Partnership was advised by Merrill Lynch that various investors sought to compel Merrill Lynch to arbitrate claims brought by certain investors of the Partnership representing approximately 5% of the total of approximately 404,000 Interests outstanding. Merrill Lynch asked the Partnership and its General Partner to confirm an obligation of the Partnership and its General Partner to indemnify Merrill Lynch in these claims against all loss, liability, claim, damage and expense, including without limitation attorneys' fees and expenses, under the terms of a certain Agency Agreement dated September 15, 1987 ("Agency Agreement") with the Partnership relating to the sale of Interests through Merrill Lynch on behalf of the Partnership. These claimants sought to arbitrate claims involving unspecified damages against Merrill Lynch based on Merrill Lynch's alleged violation of applicable state and/or federal securities laws and alleged violations of the rules of the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc., together with pendent state law claims. The Partnership believes that Merrill Lynch has resolved some of these claims through litigation and otherwise, and that Merrill Lynch may be defending other claims. The Agency Agreement generally provides that the Partnership and its General Partner shall indemnify Merrill Lynch against losses occasioned by any actual or alleged misstatements or omissions of material facts in the Partnership's offering materials used in connection with the sale of Interests and suffered by Merrill Lynch in performing its duties under the Agency Agreement, under certain specified conditions. The Agency Agreement also generally provides, under certain conditions, that Merrill Lynch shall indemnify the Partnership and its General Partner for losses suffered by the Partnership and occasioned by certain specified conduct by Merrill Lynch in the course of Merrill Lynch's solicitation of subscriptions for, and sale of, Interests. The Partnership is unable to determine at this time the ultimate investment of investors who have filed arbitration claims as to which Merrill Lynch might seek indemnification in the future. At this time, and based upon the information presently available about the arbitration statements of claims filed by some of these investors, the Partnership and its General Partner believe that they have meritorious defenses to demands for indemnification made by Merrill Lynch. Although there can be no assurance regarding the outcome of the claims for indemnification, at this time, based on information presently available about such arbitration statements of claims, the Partnership and its General Partner do not believe that the demands for indemnification by Merrill Lynch will have a material adverse effect on the financial condition of the Partnership.


On or about October 16, 1995, a lawsuit was filed against the Partnership and others in the Circuit Court of the 15th Judicial Circuit, in and for Palm Beach County, Florida, entitled Council of Villages, Inc. et al. v. Arvida/JMB Partners, Arvida/JMB Managers, Inc., Arvida/JMB Partners, Ltd., Broken Sound Club, Inc., and Country Club Maintenance Association, Inc. (the "Council of Villages" case). The multi-count complaint, as amended, was brought as a class action, and individually, on behalf of various residents of the Broken Sound Community, and alleged that defendants engaged in various acts of misconduct in, among other things, the establishment, operation, management and marketing of the Broken Sound golf course and recreational facilities, as well as the alleged improper failure to turn over such facilities to the Broken Sound homeowners on a timely basis. Plaintiffs sought, through various theories, including but not limited to breach of ordinances, breach of fiduciary duty (constructive trust), individual counts for fraudulent inducement, and civil theft, damages in excess of $45 million, the appointment of a receiver for the Broken Sound Club, other unspecified compensatory damages, the right to seek punitive damages, treble damages, prejudgment interest, attorneys' fees and costs.

On or about July 30, 1996, Savoy v. Arvida/JMB Partners, Arvida/JMB Managers, Inc., Arvida/JMB Partners, Ltd., and Broken Sound Club, Inc. was filed against the Partnership and others in the Circuit Court of the 15th Judicial Circuit, in and for Palm Beach County, Florida. The lawsuit was filed as a three-count complaint for dissolution of the Broken Sound Club, Inc. ("Club"), and sought, among other things, the appointment of a custodian or receiver for the Club, a determination that certain acts be deemed wrongful, the return to the Club of an amount of money in excess of $2.5 million in alleged "operating profits," an injunction against the charging of certain dues, an injunction requiring the Club to produce certain financial statements, and such other relief as the Court deemed just, fair and proper. This action was consolidated with the Council of Villages case.

In April 1997, the Court issued an order certifying as a class action claims respecting the alleged violation of the Boca Raton ordinances. On appeal, the appellate court approved certification of a class action for the following counts: breach of ordinances, breach of fiduciary duty, civil theft (treble damages), and unjust enrichment. The Partnership filed a third party complaint for indemnification and contribution against Disney in these consolidated actions in the event the Partnership were held liable for acts taken by a subsidiary of Disney prior to the Partnership's involvement in the Club and property.

The parties to the Council of Villages case filed cross motions for summary judgment and other motions on various matters related to the case. The Court granted certain of the plaintiffs' and the Partnership's respective motions for summary judgment. The Court also allowed the plaintiffs to amend their complaint to seek reimbursement from the Partnership of legal fees and expenses paid by the Partnership's co- defendants in this lawsuit. Defendants' fees were split among the Country Club Maintenance Association, Inc. ("CCMA"), the Club, and the Partnership.

Approximately $6,100,000 in legal fees and expenses were incurred in the lawsuit as of December 31, 2000.

Among the matters remaining for trial were the following: damages for breach of the land dedication ordinance; the damages, if any, recoverable for alleged unjust enrichment, including without limitation the alleged damages for return of the fees charged for club membership offset by the value of the club, excessive management fees, and from the planting of ficus trees; the Partnership's exposure, if any, for the return of a portion of the attorneys' fees as described above; and the issues arising from the Partnership's third party complaint against Disney.


On July 13, 2000, the Court gave preliminary approval to a mediated settlement agreement between the Partnership and the plaintiffs in the Council of Villages and Savoy cases. Notice of the proposed settlement was given to the plaintiff class in July 2000. Final Court approval of the settlement occurred on September 21, 2000. The Court's final approval was not appealed. Also, on August 3, 2000, the Partnership and Disney entered into an agreement to settle the Partnership's third party complaint against Disney that was filed in the Council of Villages case. Closing for the settlement agreements occurred on November 8, 2000. In accordance with the two settlement agreements, the following actions, among others, took place:

(1) the Council of Villages case, including the third party complaint against Disney, and the Savoy case were dismissed with prejudice and appropriate releases were executed; (2) the Partnership paid approximately $2.2 million to the Club, approximately $1.1 million to CCMA, and $1.65 million to the Council of Villages; (3) the Partnership continued to manage the operations of the Club from January 1 through November 8, 2000 for a management fee of $175,000; (4) the Club and CCMA limited to $500,000 the amount which they agreed to pay in legal fees and costs for calendar year 2000 in defense of the Council of Villages and Savoy cases and the Partnership agreed to pay any fees and costs in excess of $500,000, which amount the Partnership does not expect to be substantial; (5) the Partnership forgave certain indebtedness in the approximate amount of $1.6 million owed by the Club; (6) the Partnership assigned to the Club 207 unsold Club memberships which the Partnership had held for sale; (7) Disney paid $900,000 to the Partnership; and (8) the Partnership provided an interest-free line of credit for the Club's working capital needs, which has been repaid to the Partnership. Pursuant to the settlement, management of the Club was turned over to the members at closing of the settlement agreements.

The Partnership is also a defendant in several actions brought against it arising in the normal course of business. It is the belief of the General Partner, based on knowledge of facts and advice of counsel, that the claims made against the Partnership in such actions will not result in any material adverse effect on the Partnership's consolidated financial position or results of operations.

The Partnership may be responsible for funding certain other ancillary activities for related entities in the ordinary course of business which the Partnership does not currently believe will have any material adverse effect on its consolidated financial position or results of operations.

(11) TAX INCREMENT FINANCING ENTITIES

In connection with the development of the Partnership's Weston Community, bond financing is utilized to construct certain on-site and off- site infrastructure improvements, including major roadways, lakes, other waterways and pump stations, which the Partnership would otherwise be obligated to finance and construct as a condition to obtain certain approvals for the project. This bond financing is obtained by the District, a local government district operating in accordance with Chapter 190 of the Florida Statutes. Under this program, the Partnership is not obligated directly to repay the bonds. Rather, the bonds are expected to be fully serviced by special assessment taxes levied on the property, which effectively collateralizes the obligation to pay such assessments until land parcels are sold. At such point, the liability for the assessments related to parcels sold will be borne by the purchasers through a tax assessment on their property. These special assessment taxes are designed to cover debt service on the bonds, including principal and interest payments, as well as the operating and maintenance budgets of the District.

The use of this type of bond financing is a common practice for major land developers in South Florida.


Prior to July 1991, the District had issued variable rate bonds totaling approximately $96 million which were to mature in various years commencing in May 1991 through May 2011. During 1995, in order to reduce the exposure of variable rate debt, the District pursued new bond issuances. As a result, during March and December 1995, the District issued approximately $99 million and $13.3 million of bonds, respectively, at fixed rates ranging from 4.0% to 8.25% per annum with maturities commencing in May 1995 through May 2011. The proceeds from these bond offerings were used to refund the bonds issued prior to July 1991 described above, as well as to fund the issuance costs incurred in connection with the offerings and deposits to certain reserve accounts for future bond debt service requirements. In July 1997, the District issued another approximate $41.6 million of fixed rate bonds. These bonds bear interest ranging from 4.0% to 5.0% (payable in May and November each year until maturity or prior redemption), with maturities commencing in May 1999 through May 2027 (the "Series 1997 Bonds"). The Series 1997 Bonds were issued for the purpose of paying costs of certain improvements to the District's water management system, as well as to fund certain issuance costs incurred in connection with the offerings, deposit funds into certain reserve accounts, and pay capitalized interest on these bonds. At December 31, 2000, the amount of bonds issued and outstanding totaled approximately $120.1 million. For the years ended December 31, 2000, 1999 and 1998, the Partnership paid special assessments related to the bonds of approximately $2.8 million, $1.9 million and $3.6 million, respectively. Reference is made to Note 1 for further discussion regarding these assessments.

(12) FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

SFAS #107 requires the disclosure of the fair values of all financial assets and liabilities for which it is practicable to estimate such values.

Value is defined in SFAS #107 as the amount at which the instrument could be exchanged in a current transaction between willing parties, other than in a forced or liquidation sale. The Partnership believes the carrying amounts of its Cash and cash equivalents, Trade and other accounts receivable, Investments in and advances to joint ventures and Notes and mortgages payable approximates their fair values at December 31, 2000 and 1999.

(13) PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT

Pursuant to the terms of the Partnership Agreement (and subject to
Section 4.2F which allocates Profits, as defined, to the General Partner and Associate Limited Partners), profits or losses of the Partnership will be allocated as follows: (i) profits will be allocated such that the General Partner and the Associate Limited Partners will be allocated profits equal to the amount of cash flow distributed to them for such fiscal period with the remainder allocated to the Holders of Interests, except that in all events, the General Partner shall be allocated at least 1% of profits and (ii) losses will be allocated 1% to the General Partner, 1% to the Associate Limited Partners and 98% to the Holders of Interests.

In the event profits to be allocated in any given year do not equal or exceed cash distributed to the General Partner and the Associate Limited Partners for such year, the allocation of profits will be as follows: The General Partner and the Associate Limited Partners will be allocated profits equal to the amount of cash flow distributed to them for such year.

The Holders of Interests will be allocated losses such that the sum of amounts allocated to the General Partner, Associate Limited Partners, and Holders of Interests equals the profits for the given year.


For the years ended December 31, 2000, 1999 and 1998, the Partnership had net income for financial reporting and Federal income tax purposes. The amount of net income allocated, collectively, to the General and Associate Limited Partners for financial reporting and tax purposes for the year ended December 31, 2000 was approximately $12,611,000 and $12,541,000, respectively. The amount of net income allocated, collectively, to the General and Associate Limited Partners for financial reporting and tax purposes for the year ended December 31, 1999 was approximately $14,316,000 and $14,313,000, respectively. The amount of net income allocated, collectively, to the General and Associated Limited Partners for financial reporting and tax purposes for the year ended December 31, 1998 was approximately $6,062,000 and $6,061,000, respectively. These allocations are based on cash distributions to the General Partner and the Associate Limited Partners with an allocation of at least 1% of profits to the General Partner in accordance with Section 4.2A of the Partnership Agreement.

In general, and subject to certain limitations, the distribution of Cash Flow (as defined) after the initial admission date is allocated 90% to the Holders of Interests and 10% to the General Partner and the Associate Limited Partners (collectively) until the Holders of Interests have received cumulative distributions of Cash Flow equal to a 10% per annum return (non-compounded) on their Adjusted Capital Investments (as defined) plus the return of their Capital Investments; provided, however, that 4.7369% of the 10% amount otherwise distributable to the General Partner and Associate Limited Partners (collectively) is deferred, and such amount is paid to the Holders of Interests, until the Holders of Interests have received Cash Flow distributions equal to their Capital Investments (i.e., $1,000 per Interest). Any deferred amounts owed to the General Partner and Associate Limited Partners (collectively) are distributable to them out of Cash Flow to the extent of one-half of Cash Flow otherwise distributable to the Holders of Interests at such time as the Holders of Interests have received total distributions of Cash Flow equal to their Capital Investments. Thereafter, all distributions of Cash Flow will be made 85% to the Holders of Interests and 15% to the General Partner and the Associate Limited Partners (collectively); provided, however, that the General Partner and the Associate Limited Partners (collectively) shall be entitled to receive an additional share of Cash Flow otherwise distributable to the Holders of Interests equal to the lesser of an amount equal to 2% of the cumulative gross selling prices of any interests in real property of the Partnership (subject to certain limitations) or 13% of the aggregate distributions of Cash Flow to all parties pursuant to this sentence. With the distribution made in February 2000, the Holders of Interests have received total distributions of Cash Flow in excess of their Capital Investments (i.e., $1,000 per Interest). Accordingly, during 2000, the General Partner and Associated Limited Partners (collectively) were entitled to receive, and did receive, the amount of their deferred distributions.

Pursuant to the Partnership Agreement, the Partnership may continue in existence until December 31, 2087; however, the General Partner was to elect to pursue one of the following courses of action on or before October 31, 1997: (i) to cause the Interests to be listed on a national exchange or to be reported by the National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotation System; (ii) to purchase, or cause JMB Realty Corporation or its affiliates to purchase, all of the Interests at their then appraised fair market value (as determined by an independent nationally recognized investment banking firm or real estate advisory company); or (iii) to commence a liquidation phase in which all of the Partnership's remaining assets are sold or disposed of by the end of the fifteenth year from the termination of the offering. On October 23, 1997, the Board of Directors of the General Partner met and approved a resolution selecting the option for the Partnership to commence an orderly liquidation of its remaining assets that is to be completed by October 2002.


(14) IMPAIRMENT OF LONG-LIVED ASSETS

In December 1999, the Partnership recorded an inventory impairment of $1 million to the carrying value of its Water's Edge Community. This loss was recorded based upon an analysis of expected future net cash flows from the sale of the assets in Water's Edge as compared to the future estimated carrying value of the assets at disposition.

In March 2000, the Partnership entered into a contract with an unaffiliated third party builder for the bulk sale of the remaining lot inventory and the sales center at its Water's Edge Community for a sales price of approximately $3.2 million. The contract provided for the lots to be purchased in three phases. The closing of the first phase of 29 lots was completed in March 2000 for approximately $0.7 million. The closing of the second phase of 51 lots and the sales center was completed in September 2000 for approximately $1.6 million. The closing of the third phase of 23 lots was completed in December 2000 for approximately $0.9 million. These sales are reflected in Homesite revenues and costs of revenues on the accompanying consolidated statements of operations as of December 31, 2000.

These transactions resulted in no gain or loss for financial reporting purposes in 2000 and an approximate $3.2 million loss for Federal income tax reporting purposes in 2000.

(15) LEGAL SETTLEMENTS

On May 28, 1999, the Partnership entered into an agreement with Disney which resolved all the claims and counterclaims raised in certain litigation related to the Partnership's acquisition of assets from a subsidiary of Disney. Under the terms of the settlement agreement, Disney, among other things, paid the Partnership $9.0 million, which is reflected as Legal Settlement on the accompanying consolidated statements of operations for the year ended December 31, 1999, and released any claims relating to the claims pool. The lawsuit was dismissed on June 3, 1999, pursuant to the terms of the settlement agreement.
