Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On July 30, 2015, Hopkins Village, LLC (the “Borrower”), owned 80% by Armada Hoffler, L.P., the operating partnership (the “Operating Partnership”) of Armada Hoffler Properties, Inc. (the “Company”), entered into a construction loan agreement (the “Agreement”) with Bank of America, N.A., acting as a lender and administrative agent (the “Lender”). The Agreement provides for a non-revolving, senior secured construction loan facility (the “Loan”) of up to $50.0 million, which will be used to fund the development and construction of Johns Hopkins Village, a mixed use facility in Baltimore, Maryland that is currently under development by the Borrower. No amounts were drawn under the Loan at closing.

The Loan has a scheduled maturity date of July 30, 2018, with two one-year extension options, which may be exercised by the Borrower subject to satisfaction of certain conditions set forth in the Agreement and upon payment of a 0.15% extension fee. Amounts outstanding under the Loan bear interest at LIBOR plus 1.90%. The Loan may be prepaid in whole or in part at any time without penalty.

The Loan is secured by, among other things, a first priority deed of trust lien on the Borrower’s leasehold interest in the property. The Agreement contains standard construction loan provisions, including lien-free completion covenants and customary default provisions, in certain cases subject to customary cure periods. The occurrence of an event of default, following the applicable cure period, would permit the Lender to, among other things, declare the unpaid principal, accrued and unpaid interest and all other amounts payable under the Loan to be immediately due and payable and to institute foreclosure proceedings against the collateral.

The Company and the Operating Partnership (together, the “Guarantors”) guaranteed certain obligations of the Borrower pursuant to a separate guaranty agreement, including 25% of the principal amount of the Loan and 100% of all interest, insurance, operating expenses, real estate taxes and collection costs associated with the Loan. The guaranty includes a reduction to non-recourse provided the Borrower’s debt service coverage ratio maintains certain thresholds upon completion. The Guarantors also provided an environmental indemnity, a completion, performance and cost overrun guaranty and a guaranty with respect to certain non-recourse carveouts. The Guarantors also are required to maintain compliance with the financial covenants under its Credit Agreement, dated February 20, 2015, with Bank of America, N.A. and the other agents and lenders party thereto as administrative agent.

The foregoing summary of the Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Agreement, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.
