A lot of time has been spent on evaluating all of the creative entries we received from all of you and we have had a challenging but enjoyable experience reviewing them. Thanks to all of you for participating. After considerable deliberation, the following are the results:
After due deliberation we found two applicants who had very similar scores. To resolve this dilemma, we have decided to combine the prizes for both first and second places for an award of $8,000 to be divided by the two top contestants.

|Lobby Concept||Rubing Xu||$1,000|
|Cameron Y. Y. Atsumi|
|J. Douglas Wright - Architect -PACThai International|

The discretionary architectural contract will not be granted at this time as it appears that a repositioning of 101 Ash Street may not occur, as a single government entity is currently studying the opportunity as future government offices. It currently appears likely that we will be entering into a transaction in which the building will become occupied by such single office tenant. Notwithstanding that outcome, some of the contestants may be called upon to participate in future projects even if this project is not repositioned.
We are gauging the interest of each entrant about attending a buffet dinner in the lobby of 101 Ash Street for all of the contestants sometime in November or December at which all of you will have an opportunity to display a poster of your respective concepts and the judges and owner will have opportunities to comment on the presentations. Please reply at your earliest opportunity as to whether or not you would like to attend.
Once again, thanks to all of you for participating.
