Cranford, New Jersey--August 22, 2006--Mack-Cali President and Chief Executive Officer Mitchell E. Hersh issued the following comment today regarding The Mills Corporation's announcement on its letter of intent to build and finance the Meadowlands Xanadu project:
"We are very pleased about the latest developments regarding Meadowlands Xanadu announced by The Mills Corporation today. Colony Capital is an outstanding real estate organization. To be clear on one point -- the Mills announcement this morning incorrectly referenced an additional financial commitment by Mack-Cali. In fact, our $32.5 million investment, fully funded as of April 2005, is Mack-Cali's maximum commitment to the entertainment and retail component of the project."
