27-CV-13-15247

SECOND AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE 23. Subparts e and f of the declaration requested by Minneapolis Venture do

not present a justiciable case or controversy. COUNTERCLAIM The MSFA, by and for its Counterclaim, states and alleges as follows: NATURE OF ACTION 1. This Counterclaim is an action for a declaratory judgment to resolve an

existing controversy concerning a contract entitled the Use Agreement and Right of Entry dated September 17, 2003 (Use Agreement). The Use Agreement was entered into by the Minneapolis Community Development Agency (MCDA), the then-owner of the Downtown East property, and the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission (Commission), the public body responsible for owning the Metrodome site and operating the Metrodome at that time. The public bodies that negotiated and entered into the Use Agreement sought to create a public benefit by providing for the development and use of the Public Plaza (the term used in the Use Agreement). 2. The Downtown East property includes an underground parking ramp, the

Downtown East light rail station and light rail tracks, an open area on the northwest side of the light rail station and tracks, and the Public Plaza, located on the southeast side of the light rail station and tracks. The Public Plaza was developed with public funds, including $1,500,000 from the Federal Transit Administration. The Public Plaza was designed to create an aesthetically pleasing open space for use by the public, including users of the Hiawatha Light Rail station, who also require safe pedestrian access from

27-CV-13-15247

events at the sports arena on the Metrodome site to the station through the Public Plaza. It was not intended as a private profit center. 3. The purpose of the Use Agreement was to preserve the Public Plaza for

another public use, as a permanent open space available to the public during events at the Metrodome site, so long as that site was used as a sports arena. The intent of the original parties, which is binding on their respective successors, Minneapolis Venture and the MSFA, was that the Use Agreement would continue to govern the use of the Public Plaza so long as a sports arena is operating on the Metrodome site. 4. When Minneapolis Venture purchased the Downtown East property in

2007, it accepted the obligations of the Use Agreement. The expectation at that time was that any above-ground, transit-oriented development on the Downtown East site would occur on the northwest corner of the property, not on the Public Plaza. 5. The dispute regarding the extension of the Use Agreement has arisen for a

reason not discussed in Minneapolis Ventures Complaint. As stated in the Complaint, Minneapolis Venture and the MSFA have discussed a possible acquisition of Downtown East by the MSFA in connection with the new sports arena to be constructed on the Metrodome site. But Minneapolis Venture has sought a price far in excess of the appraised value of the property, and far in excess of prices paid for comparable property in the City of Minneapolis. Indeed, Minneapolis Venture appealed its property tax assessment to the City of Minneapolis. In 2011, Minneapolis Venture and the City reached a settlement of the assessment dispute, and the assessed value of the entire Downtown East property was reduced to approximately $4,500,000. But Minneapolis

27-CV-13-15247

Venture submitted a document to the MSFA, in the course of discussions concerning a possible purchase of Downtown East, purporting to show a value many times higher than the tax assessment value, and Minneapolis Venture has used that document to try to negotiate a much higher price for the Downtown East property. Since the MSFA has refused to meet that price, Minneapolis Venture (which never raised any issues under the Use Agreement prior to the summer of 2013), is attempting to terminate the Use Agreement as a way to (1) increase its leverage in any possible future negotiations for the sale of Downtown East; and (2) bolster valuation arguments it would seek to make in the event of any eminent domain proceeding to acquire Downtown East. 6. Minneapolis Ventures attempt to inflate the price for Downtown East, in

either a negotiation or eminent domain proceeding, depends on its claim that it can construct a private commercial real estate development on the Public Plaza covered by the Use Agreement. But as Minneapolis Venture knew when it purchased the property in 2007, development was only intended on the northwest portion of the property, across the light rail tracks from the Public Plaza. Minneapolis Venture committed, when it purchased the property, to construct such a development within 18 months (a deadline it failed to meet). That development could not possibly have included the Public Plaza, since at that time the initial term of the Use Agreement had six more years to run. In addition, the parking ramp at Downtown East had been constructed for development only on the northwest portion. The northwest portion of the ramp is constructed to bear far more weight than the southeast portion underneath the Public Plaza.

27-CV-13-15247

7.

The MSFA is entitled to a declaration requiring Minneapolis Venture to

negotiate in good faith an extension of the Use Agreement for the lifetime of the new sports arena to be constructed on the site of the Metrodome. BACKGROUND FACTS 8. 9. The MSFA restates and re-alleges each of the Paragraphs of its Answer. The property currently known as Downtown East was acquired by the

MCDA in 2001, for the purpose of constructing an underground parking ramp, providing land for the Hiawatha Line light rail transit project, including a station on the Hiawatha Line, and for construction of the Public Plaza on the southeast portion of the property. The MCDA also contemplated possible construction of transit-oriented development on the northwest portion of the Downtown East property, but not on the Public Plaza. 10. The Public Plaza was constructed on the southeast portion of the

Downtown East property with the intention that it would remain open space, to be used for Metrodome site events, to provide necessary access to the Hiawatha Line light rail station, and for other purposes. 11. As part of the development of the Public Plaza as an aesthetically pleasing

open public space, a significant piece of artwork, the Seven Seas sculpture, was publicly commissioned to adorn the Public Plaza. The Seven Seas sculpture, which is located in the Public Plaza, also serves a structural purpose, providing support for a portion of the roof of the light rail station at Downtown East. The construction of the Seven Seas on the Public Plaza is further evidence that the MCDA intended the Public

27-CV-13-15247

Plaza to remain as a permanent public space, for purposes, among others, of the light rail station and events at the site of the Metrodome. 12. In addition, the MCDA and the Commission, the MSFAs predecessor

public body, agreed that the Commission would construct Concession Facilities on the Public Plaza for use during events at the Metrodome site. 13. Based on the understanding that the Public Plaza would remain as

permanent open space, the MCDA and the Commission entered into negotiations for the Use Agreement. 14. The MCDA and the Commission entered into a preliminary Letter

Agreement dated March 26, 2001, stating their intent to reach a more permanent Use Agreement. A copy of the Letter Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit 1. The Letter Agreement confirms the intent of the MCDA and Commission to use the Public Plaza as an aesthetically pleasing public entrance and a public amenity, and to provide an open and inviting public space. 15. The final Use Agreement was entered into on September 17, 2003.

Paragraph 2 of the Use Agreement provides as follows: 2. Term of Use and Right of Entry. The Commission shall have the right to use the Concession Facilities and associated portions of the Premises beginning upon substantial completion of the Concession Facilities currently anticipated to occur in August 2003, and to schedule and hold Metrodome Events upon the Premises as described herein for a 10-year period beginning upon substantial completion of the Premises currently anticipated to occur in October 2003, and ending October 31, 2013, after which time the right of the Commission to use the Concession Facilities and schedule and hold Metrodome Events on the Premises shall terminate. However, the MCDA and Commission agree to negotiate in good faith the right to extend this Agreement to use the Concession

27-CV-13-15247

Facilities and Premises so long as the Metrodome continues to be operated as a sports arena. Further, the Commission or MCDA may terminate this Agreement upon not less than 30 days prior written notice at any time in the event the Metrodome is no longer being operated as a sports arena for regularly scheduled college or professional sports, and the MCDA also may terminate this Agreement if the Commission or any successor public agency ceases to survive as a legal entity. Upon expiration or earlier termination of this Agreement, the Commission shall promptly remove its trade fixtures and personal property from the Public Plaza and title to the Concession Facilities shall vest in the MCDA. 16. At the time Minneapolis Venture purchased Downtown East in 2007, it was

specifically aware of the existence of the Use Agreement. Minneapolis Venture knew and intended that it would be bound by the terms of the Use Agreement. 17. On November 30, 2004, the MCDA conveyed the Downtown East property

to the City of Minneapolis, subject to the Use Agreement. 18. On October 25, 2007, the City of Minneapolis and the Commission entered

into a Memorandum of Use Agreement and Right of Entry (Memorandum), a copy of which is attached here to as Exhibit 2. The Memorandum acknowledged that [t]he City and the Commission wish to give notice of the existence of the Use Agreement, to incorporate it by reference into the Memorandum, and to agree that the rights, benefits and burdens created by the Use Agreement shall constitute covenants running with the Property and be binding upon the City and Commission and their respective successors and assigns. 19. The Memorandum was recorded with the office of the Registrar of Titles of

Hennepin County, Minnesota on or about November 2, 2007, as Document No. 4441926.

27-CV-13-15247

20.

On October 26, 2007, the City of Minneapolis (which had acquired the

Downtown East property from the MCDA), sold the Downtown East property to Alatus Management LLC. On information and belief, Minneapolis Venture is the successor to of Alatus Management LLC and is subject to the legal obligation undertaken by Alatus Management LLC regarding the Downtown East property. 21. As part of the purchase transaction, Alatus Management LLC agreed to

assume and be bound by the Use Agreement. 22. The MSFA was created by Minn. Stat. Ch. 473J, in 2012. Minn. Stat.

473J.25, subd. 2 provides that all of the remaining assets, liabilities, and obligations of the Commission shall be transferred to the MSFA. 23. The rights, liabilities and obligations conferred by the Use Agreement are

among the assets, liabilities and obligations transferred from the Commission to the MSFA, pursuant to resolutions duly passed by both the Commission and the MSFA, on or about August 3, 2012. 24. Paragraph 2 of the Use Agreement provides that the parties agree to

negotiate in good faith the right to extend this Agreement so long as the Metrodome continues to be operated as a sports arena. The term Metrodome is defined in the agreement as the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome Sports Center. The term Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome Sports Center, as used in the Use Agreement, includes not only the existing stadium, but also the real estate upon which the stadium is located. 25. The term Metrodome, as defined in Minn. Stat. 473.551, subd. 9,

includes all real estate upon which the Metrodome stadium is built.

11

27-CV-13-15247

26.

Pursuant to Minn. Stat. Ch. 473J, the MSFA is responsible for providing for

the construction, financing and long-term use of a stadium and related stadium infrastructure on the real estate which is currently the site of the Metrodome stadium. 27. As defined in the Use Agreement, the term Hubert H. Humphrey

Metrodome Sports Center or Metrodome includes a new sports arena stadium constructed on the real estate which is part of the defined term Metrodome. 28. The intent of the original parties to the Use Agreement, the MCDA and the

Commission, was that the Use Agreement could and would be extended in the event a new stadium was constructed on the site of the current Metrodome stadium. 29. The obligations of the current owner of Downtown East, Minneapolis

Venture, and the rights of the MSFA under the Use Agreement apply in the event of the construction of a new stadium on the current site of the Metrodome sports arena. 30. The current dispute regarding the Use Agreement has arisen because

Minneapolis Venture seeks additional leverage in negotiations for the sale of Downtown East to the MSFA. Minneapolis Venture raised no issue regarding the Use Agreement until the summer of 2013, at a point when Minneapolis Venture was seeking a price for Downtown East far in excess of its appraised value. 31. In addition, Minneapolis Venture has undertaken to create the current

dispute in anticipation of a possible future eminent domain action, under which the MSFA would seek to acquire Downtown East. In such an action, Minneapolis Venture plans to try to inflate the value of Downtown East by contending that the Public Plaza would be a site for a commercial development. To make that argument, Minneapolis

12

27-CV-13-15247

Venture would have to terminate the Use Agreement, which would otherwise prevent such a development. 32. When Alatus Management LLC purchased the Downtown East property in

2007, it committed to the City of Minneapolis to construct transit-oriented development on the site, commencing within 18 months of the purchase. At that time, such development could only have been intended for the northwest portion of the property, since the southeast portion (the Public Plaza) was undisputedly subject to the Use Agreement through October 31, 2013. 33. Alatus Management LLC and Minneapolis Venture have not met this

development commitment in the six years since Alatus Management LLC purchased the property. They have sought extensions of the deadline for the development commitment from the City of Minneapolis. But in a future eminent domain proceeding, if one is commenced, Minneapolis Venture would attempt to obtain compensation for the hypothetical development potential of the Public Plaza, even though it has never been able to actually develop anything, even on the northwest corner of the site, which was intended for development. 34. Although Minneapolis Venture now seeks a price for the Downtown East

property far in excess of the appraised value, it has recently obtained a reduction in the valuation of the property for property tax purposes. Minneapolis Venture appealed the assessment of Downtown East to the City of Minneapolis, seeking a reduced valuation for several tax years. In 2011, the parties settled that dispute, with an agreement to reduce the assessed value of the entire Downtown East property to approximately $4.5

13

27-CV-13-15247

million. This valuation was reduced after Minneapolis Venture contended that the original assessment overstated the value of the property. 35. The dispute over the extension of the Use Agreement is a genuine dispute,

but the underlying reason for Minneapolis Venture taking the position that the Use Agreement should be terminated is its attempt to greatly inflate the price it would receive for Downtown East in either a negotiated purchase or a future eminent domain action. The true intent of the original parties to the Use Agreement, which is binding upon their current successors, was that the Public Plaza would remain an open, public space, and that it would be available for events at the adjacent sports arena for as long as the Metrodome site was used as a sports arena. COUNT I: DECLARATORY JUDGMENT 36. The MSFA restates and re-alleges Paragraphs 1 through 35 of this

Counterclaim. 37. The MSFA and Minneapolis Venture have a genuine and present justiciable

controversy about the respective rights and obligations under the Use Agreement, the parties have taken adverse positions on the issue, and the court is capable of granting relief in the form of a declaratory judgment pursuant to Minn. Stat. Ch. 555. 38. The MSFA is entitled to a declaration of the Court that: a. The MSFA and Minneapolis Venture, as successors to the original

parties to the Use Agreement, are currently parties to and bound by the obligations of the Use Agreement;

14

27-CV-13-15247

b.

The obligations of the Use Agreement continue in the event that a

new sports arena is constructed on the current site of the Metrodome stadium; c. The parties are obligated, under the terms of Paragraph 2 of the Use

Agreement, to negotiate in good faith the right to extend the Use Agreement so long as the current site of the Metrodome stadium continues to be operated as a sports arena. WHEREFORE, the MSFA requests judgment as follows: 1. 2. Dismissing Plaintiffs Complaint with prejudice; Granting the MSFA a declaratory judgment as follows: a. The MSFA and Minneapolis Venture, as successors to the original

parties to the Use Agreement, are currently parties to and bound by the obligations of the Use Agreement; b. The obligations of the Use Agreement continue in the event that a

new sports arena is constructed on the current site of the Metrodome stadium; c. The parties are obligated, under the terms of Paragraph 2 of the Use

Agreement, to negotiate in good faith the right to extend the Use Agreement so long as the current site of the Metrodome stadium continues to be operated as a sports arena. 3. 4. For its costs and disbursements incurred herein; and For such other relief as the Court deems just and proper.
