BALTIMORE (June 20, 2007) – St. John Properties, Inc. has completed three new single-story
flex/office buildings – totaling more than 87,000 square feet of space — at Baltimore Crossroads@95, an 1100-
acre mixed use business community located near White Marsh. Upon completion of the new Secondary
Academic Intervention Model School (SAIMS) this fall, that is currently underway on behalf of The Baltimore
County Public School System, St. John Properties will have constructed eight buildings, representing nearly
300,000 square feet of space at Baltimore Crossroads.
The latest projects — 405 Williams Court (31,280 square feet), 415 Williams Court (25,040
square feet) and 425 Williams Court (31,280 square feet) – are speculative flex/office buildings featuring 16 foot

of space. Free surface parking is available and services all three buildings. Incorporated within the common area
of the new projects is an executive golf putting green.

square feet of retail space and several full-service hotels. At final build-out, more than 10,000 employees are

“We are always searching for amenities to differentiate our business parks from the
competition, and we view the golf putting green as a combination conversation-starter and stress-reliever for both
management and employees of Baltimore Crossroads,” stated Jerry Wit, Senior Vice President – Marketing for
St. John Properties. “And who knows – maybe some putting competitions are in the offing down the road.”
“We are negotiating leases with a number of companies that are interested in moving their
operations to Baltimore Crossroads@95, and are experiencing a significant increase in interest among local and
out-of-town firms in the project,” added Jerry Wit. “Our strategy is to keep ahead of the expected leasing pace,
and to have a healthy inventory of product that will enable us to respond quickly to tenant needs. We are equally
encouraged by the excellent leasing activity that has been completed by other developers with interests in this
business community,” he said.
For the third year in a row, St. John Properties intends to develop more than one million square
feet of new space in the local market in 2007. As of year-end 2006, the St. John Properties portfolio was 97%
leased and included more than 1500 tenants. The total real estate investments of the company are valued at more
than $1.1 billion.
