-Expansion to add a “Capital-Light” Fee-Based Service Arrangement To an Existing Bluegreen Resort Property-

BOCA RATON, FL, - September 29, 2015 – Bluegreen Corporation (“Bluegreen Vacations” or “Bluegreen”), today announced that the expansion of Bluegreen’s Patrick Henry Square property in Williamsburg, Virginia, is nearing completion under a developer relationship with PHI Redevelopment LLC ("PHI").

Under the terms of the agreements, Bluegreen sold undeveloped land at Bluegreen Vacations’ existing Patrick Henry Square resort to PHI, and in turn entered into a fee-based service relationship with PHI. PHI is in the process of completing the development phase of a single building comprising 25 one, two and three-bedroom units, as well as an indoor pool and check-in facility. Bluegreen Vacations is engaged to sell the completed vacation ownership units under a fee-based service sales and marketing agreement, and to service the consumer note receivables originated in the sales process for PHI. Bluegreen Vacations will also continue to perform resort management services for the Patrick Henry Square resort. The expansion is currently anticipated to be completed in October 2015, and occupancy is currently anticipated for spring 2016.

“The expansion of the Patrick Henry Square resort is another example of Bluegreen utilizing existing, undeveloped resort property to provide a third-party developer the opportunity to expand an existing Bluegreen Vacations resort and enjoy Bluegreen Vacations’ suite of fee-based services,” commented David Pontius, Executive Vice President, Chief Strategy Officer and President of Bluegreen Services. “The expansion of the property, located approximately a half-block from historic Colonial Williamsburg, provides more Bluegreen Vacation Club customers the opportunity to experience Williamsburg and the Patrick Henry Square resort.”

“We are happy to have the opportunity to develop the Patrick Henry Square resort expansion with these vacation ownership industry leaders and provide Bluegreen Vacations customers with an exceptional vacation experience in historic Williamsburg,” commented Andy Anderson, President of PHI.
