The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Charlotte, Quail Hollow to Open in 2008

CHEVY CHASE, MD -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 19, 2006 -- The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C. and The Harris Land Company have announced plans for 60 lavishly appointed condominiums to be developed in The Quail Hollow Village at Seven Eagles, an exclusive area of South Charlotte, North Carolina. Sales will begin in fall 2006 of the one-four bedroom luxury apartments which are expected to be ready for occupancy in 2008.

The design of the condominiums will reflect the landmark hotels of the 1920s built in the Meizner style of architecture. Owners of The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Charlotte, Quail Hollow will enjoy an exceptional lifestyle featuring amenities and services from housekeeping to in-home entertainment and dining, all provided by staff trained and managed by The Ritz-Carlton. Owners of The Residences can utilize an 8,500 square foot spa and fitness center, and pool. In addition, the completed mixed-use project will include 240,000 square feet of specialty and commercial space to include Garden Secrets, Design Unlimited, and Noble's Restaurant.

"I believe The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Charlotte, Quail Hollow will be a showcase of luxury lifestyle living in The Queen City," said Dee-Dee Harris, president of The Harris Land Company.

The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company opened its first residence project in 2000 in Washington, DC. Since then it has expanded to locations including Baltimore, Boston, Miami, Dallas, Jupiter (Fla.), Molasses Reef (Turks and Caicos), New York, Philadelphia, Sarasota, Denver, Toronto, Vail, Grand Cayman and Berlin. "The continued success of this concept and brand extension at such highly desirable locations is yet another indication of the faith discerning consumers have in The Ritz-Carlton name and reputation for quality," said Walter Hall, vice president, The Residences.
