In order to exercise his or her LTIP Unit Conversion Right, a BPY AO LTIP Unitholder shall deliver a notice (a 'LTIP Unit Conversion Notice') in the form attached as Exhibit X hereto. Holders of BPY AO LTIP Units shall not have the right to convert Unvested BPY AO LTIP Units into FV LTIP Units until they become Vested BPY AO LTIP Units; provided, however, that when a BPY AO LTIP Unitholder is notified of the expected occurrence of an event that will cause his or her Unvested BPY AO LTIP Units to become Vested BPY AO LTIP Units (or at such other times as is permitted by the Managing General Partner), such holder may give the Partnership an LTIP Unit Conversion Notice conditioned upon and effective as of the time of vesting (or the occurrence of such other event as may be permitted by the Managing General Partner), and such LTIP Unit Conversion Notice shall become effective upon the time of such vesting (or such other event) unless it is revoked by the holder of the BPY AO LTIP Units prior to such time. In all cases, the conversion of any BPY AO LTIP Units into FV LTIP Units shall be subject to the conditions and procedures set forth in this Section 6.

- 4 -

6.2If the Partnership, the Managing General Partner or BPY shall be a party to any transaction (including without limitation a merger, consolidation, unit exchange, self tender offer for all or substantially all the FV LTIP Units or other business combination or reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of the Partnership's assets) as a result of which the FV LTIP Units shall be exchanged for or converted into the right, or the FV LTIP Unitholders shall otherwise be entitled, to receive cash, securities or other property or any combination thereof (any such transaction being referred to herein as a 'Capital Transaction'), then the Managing General Partner shall have the right, immediately prior to the Capital Transaction, to convert some or all outstanding BPY AO LTIP Units into FV LTIP Units (a 'Forced Conversion'). In anticipation of such Forced Conversion and the consummation of the Capital Transaction, the Partnership shall use commercially reasonable efforts to cause each BPY AO LTIP Unitholder to be afforded the right to receive in connection with such Capital Transaction in consideration for the FV LTIP Units into which his or her BPY AO LTIP Units will be converted the same kind and amount of cash, securities and other property (or any combination thereof) receivable upon the consummation of such Capital Transaction by a BPY AO LTIP Unitholder of the same number of FV LTIP Units, assuming such FV LTIP Unitholder is not a Person with which the Partnership consolidated or into which the Partnership merged or which merged into the Partnership or to which such sale or transfer was made, as the case may be (a 'Constituent Person'), or an Affiliate of a Constituent Person. In the event that FV LTIP Unitholders have the opportunity to elect the form or type of consideration to be received upon consummation of the Capital Transaction, prior to such Capital Transaction the Managing General Partner shall give prompt written notice to each BPY AO LTIP Unitholder of such election, and shall use commercially reasonable efforts to afford such holders the right to elect, by written notice to the Managing General Partner, the form or type of consideration to be received upon conversion of each BPY AO LTIP Unit held by a BPY AO LTIP Unitholder into FV LTIP Units in connection with such Capital Transaction. If a BPY AO LTIP Unitholder fails to make such an election, such BPY AO LTIP Unitholder (and any of its transferees) shall receive upon conversion of each BPY AO LTIP Unit held by him or her (or by any of his or her transferees) the same kind and amount of consideration that a FV LTIP Unitholder would receive if such holder of FV LTIP Units failed to make such an election.

- 5 -

6.3On the AO LTIP Unit Forced Conversion Date, Vested BPY AO LTIP Units that have not previously been converted shall be converted into FV LTIP Units without any further action.

6.4The date on which a BPY AO LTIP Unit shall be converted into FV LTIP Units (the 'LTIP Unit Conversion Date' for such unit) shall be: (i) in the event of a conversion upon the exercise of the LTIP Unit Conversion Right, the date on which the Partnership receives the LTIP Unit Conversion Notice for the conversion of such BPY AO LTIP Unit (or, if later, the date upon which such LTIP Unit Conversion Notice becomes effective), (ii) in the event of a Forced Conversion, immediately prior to the applicable Capital Transaction or (iii) in the event of a conversion pursuant to Section 6.3 above, the AO LTIP Unit Forced Conversion Date.

6.5On the LTIP Unit Conversion Date for a BPY AO LTIP Unit, such BPY AO LTIP Unit will be converted into a number (or fraction thereof) of FV LTIP Units equal to the AO LTIP Conversion Factor for such BPY AO LTIP Unit on such date.

6.6A conversion of BPY AO LTIP Units for which the holder thereof has given an LTIP Unit Conversion Notice or that have converted upon the AO LTIP Unit Forced Conversion Date shall occur automatically after the close of business on the applicable LTIP Unit Conversion Date without any further action on the part of such BPY AO LTIP Unitholder, as of which time such BPY AO LTIP Unitholder shall be credited on the books and records of the Partnership with the issuance of the number of FV LTIP Units issuable upon such conversion. After the conversion of BPY AO LTIP Units as aforesaid, the Partnership shall deliver to such BPY AO LTIP Unitholder, upon his or her written request, a certificate of the Managing General Partner certifying the number of FV LTIP Units and remaining BPY AO LTIP Units, if any, held by such Person immediately after such conversion.

6.7For purposes of making future allocations under the Agreement, reference to a Partner's portion of its Economic Capital Account Balance attributable to his or her BPY AO LTIP Units shall exclude, after the date of conversion of any of such Partner's BPY AO LTIP Units, the portion of such Partner's Economic Capital Account Balance attributable to the converted BPY AO LTIP Units.

7. Redemption Right of BPY AO LTIP Unitholders

7.1BPY AO LTIP Units will not be redeemable at the option of the Partnership; provided, however, that the foregoing shall not prohibit the Partnership from repurchasing BPY AO LTIP Units from the BPY AO LTIP Unitholder thereof if and to the extent that such BPY AO LTIP Unitholder agrees to sell such BPY AO LTIP Units.

7.2Except as otherwise set forth in the relevant Vesting Agreement or other separate agreement entered into between the Partnership and a BPY AO LTIP Unitholder, and subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein or in the Agreement, on or at any time after the applicable LTIP Unit Conversion Date each BPY AO LTIP Unitholder will have the right to exercise the Redemption Right, as set forth in the Plan, with respect to all or any portion of the FV LTIP Units into which such BPY AO LTIP Unitholder's BPY AO LTIP Units were converted.

7.3Each BPY AO LTIP Unitholder covenants and agrees with the Managing General Partner that all FV LTIP Units with respect to which the Redemption Right is exercised shall be delivered to the Managing General Partner free and clear of all liens, claims and encumbrances whatsoever and should any such liens, claims and/or encumbrances exist or arise with respect to such FV LTIP Units, the Partnership shall be under no obligation to redeem the same. Each BPY AO LTIP Unitholder further agrees that, in the event any state or local property transfer tax is payable as a result of the redemption or exchange of its FV LTIP Units in connection with the exercise of the Redemption Right, such BPY AO LTIP Unitholder shall assume and pay such transfer tax.

7.4Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, a BPY AO LTIP Unitholder (i) shall not be entitled to exercise the Redemption Right to the extent the right to acquire BPY Units upon exercise of the Exchange Right could cause such BPY AO LTIP Unitholder or any other Person to violate any of the restrictions on transfer of BPY Units set forth in the BPY Partnership Agreement and (ii) shall have no rights under this Agreement to acquire BPY Units which would otherwise be prohibited under the BPY Partnership Agreement. To the extent any attempted exercise of the Redemption Right would be in violation of this Section 7.4, it shall be null and void ab initio and such BPY AO LTIP Unitholder shall not acquire any rights or economic interest in the cash otherwise payable upon such redemption or the BPY Units otherwise issuable upon such exchange.

- 7 -

7.5Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary (but subject to Section 7.4): (i) without the consent of the Managing General Partner otherwise, each BPY AO LTIP Unitholder may exercise the Redemption Right only one time in each fiscal quarter; (ii) without the consent of the Managing General Partner otherwise, each BPY AO LTIP Unitholder may not exercise the Redemption Right for fewer than 1,000 FV LTIP Units or, if the BPY AO LTIP Unitholder holds fewer than 1,000 FV LTIP Units, all of the FV LTIP Units held by such BPY AO LTIP Unitholder; (iii) without the consent of the Managing General Partner otherwise, each BPY AO LTIP Unitholder may not exercise the Redemption Right during the period after the record date established in accordance with the Agreement for the distribution of cash to FV LTIP Unitholders with respect to a distribution and before the record date established by BPY for a distribution to its unitholders of some or all of its portion of such distribution; and (iv) the consummation of any redemption or exchange for BPY Units pursuant to the Redemption Right shall be subject to the expiration or termination of the applicable waiting period, if any, under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended.

7.6Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary (but subject to Section 6), a BPY AO LTIP Unitholder may deliver a Redemption Notice relating to FV LTIP Units that will be issued to such BPY AO LTIP Unitholder upon conversion of BPY AO LTIP Units into FV LTIP Units pursuant to Section 6 in advance of the LTIP Unit Conversion Date; provided, however, that the redemption of such FV LTIP Units by the Partnership shall in no event take place until the LTIP Unit Conversion Date.

9. Special Approval Rights

BPY AO LTIP Unitholders shall only (a) have those voting rights required from time to time by non-waivable provisions of the Laws of Bermuda, if any, and (b) have the limited voting rights expressly set forth in this Section 9. The Managing General Partner and/or the Partnership shall not, without the affirmative vote of BPY AO LTIP Unitholders of more than 50% of the then outstanding BPY AO LTIP Units affected thereby, given in person or by proxy, either in writing or at a meeting (voting separately as a class), take any action that would materially and adversely alter, change, modify or amend, whether by merger, consolidation or otherwise, the rights, powers or privileges of such BPY AO LTIP Units, subject to the following exceptions: (i) no separate consent of the BPY AO LTIP Unitholders will be required if and to the extent that any such alteration, change, modification or amendment would, in a ratable and proportional manner, alter, change, modify or amend the rights, powers or privileges of the FV LTIP Units; (ii) a merger, consolidation or other business combination or reorganization of the Partnership, the Managing General Partner, BPY or any of their Affiliates shall not be deemed to materially and adversely alter, change, modify or amend the rights, powers or privileges of the BPY AO LTIP Units so long as either: (w) the BPY AO LTIP Units that are then eligible for conversion are converted into FV LTIP Units immediately prior to the effectiveness of the transaction; (x) the BPY AO LTIP Unitholders either will receive, or will have the right to elect to receive, for each BPY AO LTIP Unit an amount of cash, securities, or other property equal to the amount of cash, securities or other property that would be paid in respect of such BPY AO LTIP Unit had it been converted into a number of FV LTIP Units (or fraction of a FV LTIP Unit, as applicable under the terms of such BPY AO LTIP Units) immediately prior to the transaction; (y) the BPY AO LTIP Units remain outstanding with their terms materially unchanged; or (z) if the Partnership is not the surviving entity in such transaction, the BPY AO LTIP Units are exchanged for a security of the surviving entity with terms that are materially the same with respect to rights to allocations, distributions, redemption, conversion and voting as the BPY AO LTIP Units; (iii) any creation or issuance of Partnership Units (whether ranking junior to, on a parity with or senior to the BPY AO LTIP Units in any respect), which either (x) does not require the consent of the FV LTIP Unitholders or (y) is authorized by the FV LTIP Unitholders shall not be deemed to materially and adversely alter, change, modify or amend the rights, powers or privileges of the BPY AO LTIP Units; and (iv) any waiver by the Partnership of restrictions or limitations applicable to any outstanding BPY AO LTIP Units with respect to any holder or holders thereof shall not be deemed to materially and adversely alter, change, modify or amend the rights, powers or privileges of the BPY AO LTIP Units with respect to other holders. The foregoing voting provisions will not apply if, as of or prior to the time when the action with respect to which such vote would otherwise be required will be taken or be effective, all outstanding BPY AO LTIP Units shall have been converted and/or redeemed, or provision is made for such redemption and/or conversion to occur as of or prior to such time.

Subject to the terms of the relevant Vesting Agreement or other document pursuant to which BPY AO LTIP Units are granted, except in connection with the exercise of the Redemption Right, a BPY AO LTIP Unitholder may not transfer all or any portion of his or her BPY AO LTIP Units without the prior written consent of the Managing General Partner, which consent may be given or withheld in the Managing General Partner's sole and absolute discretion.
