s Gov. Andrew Cuomo continued to rally support from business, municipal and academic leaders for his proposed tax-free business zones on and around college campuses, critics have blasted the novel plan as more “corporate welfare” from “Governor 1 Percent” and an inadequate tax relief measure to spur upstate economic development. Cuomo and administration officials have held a series of meetings with leaders in the public and private sectors to discuss goals and details of the Tax-Free NY initiative unveiled by the governor last month. It would offer 10-year state tax exemptions to job-creating businesses that lease space at the state’s 57 SUNY campuses outside New York City and selected private universities north of Westchester County or at 20 other off-campus state properties. The tax-free zones, which would foster working partnerships and technology transfers between

Ailing hospital system seeks and finds a healthy partner BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

IN AN AFFIDAVIT FILED WITH HIS HOSPITALS’ recent Bankruptcy Court petition, Sound Shore Health System President and CEO John Spicer laid out a scenario of financial pressures – mounting pension obligations and other debts, liens and judgments, declining reimbursements, negative cash balances and balking vendors and lenders – that led to Sound Shore’s pending acquisition by Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx.

Though the details might differ, his account from New Rochelle and Mount Vernon could be an outline for other ailing New York hospitals exploring merger or acquisition as a way to keep their doors open for patients in the months and years ahead. A growing employer in Westchester County with its $33 million purchase of the former Kraft Foods beverages research and development center in Tarrytown, where it plans to move about 850 nonmedical jobs this year, Montefiore will be a Hospital, page 6

After 26 years, a scourge of woe retires Nancy Ment took ANDRUS from local to international

f Nancy Ment does not impress – by mission, by life-changing achievement, by look-’em-in-the-eye determination – one is not impressible. ANDRUS, a small, sturdy-as-a-rock home for troubled children at 1156 N. Broadway in Yonkers would be transformed during her 26 years there into a success story of the highest order and an international template for helping troubled youths. She first ramped up psychiatric offerings as a licensed clinical social worker and for the last 10 years has served as president and CEO. ANDRUS served 57 children when Ment arrived; today it serves 2,500. She steps down July 1. A successor has already been named: Mimi Clarke Corcoran. To Ment’s impressive bearing, add magnanimity. She sets the record straight on the staff from the get-go. “An incredibly dedicated group of people. We could not do it without them. I feel lucky because I get the credit and everyone else does the work. I have terrific colleagues.” Between 1990 and 1999 – a period tagged “creating a community presence” – ANDRUS established day treatment, abandoned allprivate funding for a public-private model, began a relationship with state-connected Westchester County Healthy Families, expanded what had been five cow barns in the ’70s into a 150-student K-9 school and began an early childhood initiative. Ment and the center used those accomplishments – impressive as they are – merely as a springboard. Today ANDRUS operates 17 locations in Yonkers, Eastchester/ Tuckahoe, White Plains, Peekskill and New Rochelle and employs 284 full-time and 165 part-time workers. When Ment arrived the operating budget was $3 million; fiscal 201314 is projected at $32.5 million. Seventy-three clients live on site today, their presence testifying to dysfunction, and worse, at home. Eighty-five clients attend school dayside. “All,” Ment says, “are very seriously emotionally disturbed. They have

Yonkers excludes private developers from ‘green initiative’ BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

Y

onkers city officials have adopted a green building standards law pushed by the mayor that mandates energyefficient building designs for new and renovated city-owned properties but does not require private developers to comply with the same environmental standards for commercial and larger residential construction projects. Instead the ordinance, unanimously adopted in May by the Yonkers City Council and signed into law by Mayor Mike Spano, states that city officials “should encourage” the use of green building standards for private projects. For data collection purposes only, the ordinance requires a green buildings survey checklist to be filed with site plan applications for commercial projects of more than 15,000 square feet and housing developments of more than 25 units. City officials when adopting the law noted that buildings are among the heaviest consumers of natural resources and account for a significant portion of the greenhouse gas emissions that affect climate change. In the U.S., buildings account for 38 percent of all carbon dioxide emissions and 73 percent of electricity consumption.

The green buildings law follows the city’s effort this year to collect data on the energy usage of all municipal buildings to calculate greenhouse gas emissions. The mayor’s office said the data showed that inefficiencies contribute to more than two-thirds of all the city’s emissions. “Municipal governments need to assume the leadership role in promoting energy efficiency,” Spano said in a press release. “We are all responsible for our current environment and now we must be part of the solution.” The green building standards were developed by Brad Tito, the city’s director of sustainable development, working with the Yonkers Green Policy Task Force and a working group of environmentalists and real estate developers. The city task force four years ago developed a more broadly inclusive green buildings law for most new construction and substantially rehabilitated buildings that was adopted by the City Council. Former Mayor Philip Amicone, though, vetoed the legislation, citing a number of legal concerns of the city’s corporation counsel. Amicone called the law, which required commercial buildings to meet a nationally recognized green building standard and compliance verification by a third party, “unenforceable and in fact illegal.” He said a

green buildings law was needed in Yonkers, “but it has to be one that works” and must “strike the right balance between regulations and incentives, marrying environmental concerns with economic realities.” Yonkers resident Terry Joshi, chairperson of the Green Policy Task Force, noted that “the whole field of green building and energy efficiency has moved on” since the vetoed law was drafted in 2009. That law required developers to meet a national design standard of either the U.S. Green Building Council or The Green Building Initiative. “This is a way better version,” she said of the new law. “This is Yonkers-centric.” Still, she said, “It doesn’t do really anything much for commercial buildings.” “This is the most we could get” from the Spano administration, Joshi said. The mayor proposed the law that was adopted. Joshi said he opposed mandatory standards for private developments and told the group working on the ordinance instead “to come back with incentives” for developers. Joshi said Spano at a later meeting said no incentives would be offered and implementing green standards should simply be optional for private developers. Though some developers in the city favor higher energy efficiency standards, Joshi said, some in Yonkers still hold the perception that

green building design costs more and “is an impediment to development,” she said. Joshi said she was hopeful that commercial and larger residential projects before long will be required to meet the new environmental standards. “In a year or so, when the dust settles and people realize it’s not so complicated, we’ll go ahead with it,” she said. Joshi in a statement following the council’s adoption of the ordinance said the Green Policy Task Force as a next step encouraged the city to immediately “enforce these green building standards on all city construction over four-family homes. It is not an exaggeration to say that each tiny step taken by a single municipality, will, in the aggregate, work to mitigate future climate change.” Like Joshi, some City Council members called the green buildings ordinance a good first step. Council President Chuck Lesnick in a statement said, “It is crucial that the city has recognized the importance of green building standards and has referenced them in our city code. While I would have preferred that a minimum score be required for all new development, at least now policy makers on the city council, the industrial development agency and the planning and zoning boards will be aware of the standards and can encourage developers to use them.”

Measuring benefits of economic incentives BY ED ARACE

L

ocal and state governments provide incentives to attract and retain businesses because businesses create jobs and revenue for government and grow the economy. The debate that rages is about how much incentive to give and whether that incentive results in a net benefit for the community. A careful analysis of the cost and benefit of the incentives provided can help to clarify the situation. Having the ability to grant economic incentives to offset the high cost of doing business in states like New York is a necessity in the very competitive world of economic development. The people charged with attracting new businesses and to help expand and retain existing business need powerful economic development tools such as the tax-free zones recently proposed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Economic development tools come in two types, as-of-right incentives, which are granted to a business creating jobs and making an investment in a defined zone or area, and discretionary incentives, which are the type typically granted by local industrial development agencies (IDAs) in the form

of tax abatements. Discretionary incentives should only be granted if they meet the golden rule of taxpayer-funded economic development, which is “But for this assistance this project would not happen here.” Millions of dollars have been awarded to private projects in the form of tax abatements, loans, job training and other financial benefits in order to make those projects financially viable for private investors and to attract them to the specific municipality. In many cases, private investors have promoted their project suggesting that public investment is justified because of the jobs and investment the project will generate. Seldom is there an attempt to quantify what economic impact the jobs and investment will actually have on the locality’s or state’s economy. This lack of economic impact analysis has caused the Office of the State Comptroller and corresponding legislative committees to demand accountability and to express doubts about the actual benefit to localities of the incentives provided. Legislation limiting the incentives offered by IDAs has been proposed. The challenge is to find an effective way to measure whether and how much an activity actually adds to the GDP or merely

displaces other activity. Since economic growth adds jobs, increases the standard of living and generates tax receipts, states and their political subdivisions have sought ways to help generate more of it. A variety of laws have been passed to permit the use of public resources to attempt to entice private sector investment with the intention of generating growth in the economy. In New York state, localities have been authorized to create IDAs to implement these laws and dispense local tax incentives to development projects intended to add to the local GDP. Hundreds of localities in the state have availed themselves of this opportunity. Economists and the U.S. government have spent years developing econometric models to evaluate the actual impact of economic activity upon a local jurisdiction, state or nation. These models are all based upon data from the U.S. Census Bureau. The data come from the annually updated decennial census and from the U.S. Commercial Census. The level of detail in this data is applied to the census track level and, therefore, is easily aggregated to determine impact at the municipal level. The econometric models are designed

to take a specific project and determine its impact on the community’s economy taking into account the direct impact – the actual value of the project reflecting the additional income and expenditures of the entity creating the project, the indirect additional payroll and expenditures by businesses in which the additional employees and new or expanded company spend their income and induced impact the changes in regional household spending patterns caused by changes in household income generated from the direct and indirect effects of both the construction and project operations minus any displacement of existing activity in the community. This is done by applying a multiplier to the algorithms in the model established by the U.S. Census Bureau for each type of industry. The more specific the data entered for each project, the more accurate is the resulting impact analysis. Given growing concern in the executive and legislative branches of state government about allocation of public resources to private projects, IDAs would be well advised to require an applicant to provide an independent economic impact and site-cost analysis Guest, page 5

iting high taxes and onerous regulations, Chief Executive magazine named New York state at the bottom of the heap – 49th of 50 and besting only California – for doing business in its May issue. Chief Executive magazine is published by Greenwich-based Chief Executive Group L.L.C. It based its ranking on its annual CEO survey. “New York’s taxes on the job creators are broken and taxing authorities are too bureaucratic,” said unnamed CEOs who spoke to the magazine. “Lots of regulations and high taxes make states like New York bad options.” The article blasted New York state as an “awful place to operate a facility” or to employ people due to its out-of-control spending, budget mismanagement and corruption. “We will do almost anything possible to minimize our exposure to these antibusiness environments,” said the CEOs. “It is nearly

We’re No. 49! impossible to make a good profit and not worth the management effort and the investment.” The magazine gave New York one star out of five for taxations and regulations, three stars for workforce quality and 2.5 stars for living environment. John Ravitz, executive vice president of The Business Council of Westchester, parsed the report differently, even as he acknowledged onerous burdens. “I think it is critical to continue to attract businesses to come, stay and grow,” Ravitz said. “That message is starting to take hold. We need to sell Westchester and make improvements.”

Ravitz said Albany needs to provide mandate relief and cut regulations and unnecessary fees to make the state more business friendly. “We’ve seen some improvements, but more have to happen,” Ravitz said. “We have to stop putting more taxes on the backs of businesses. Things are getting better; we have to really keep pushing to sell Westchester to businesses.” Amy Allen, managing director of the Westchester County Association, said she was not surprised by the state’s low ranking. “This is nothing new,” Allen said. “We have high taxes, high energy costs and too

many regulations. The numbers don’t lie. This is more of the same. These rankings are not good for anybody.” Michael Durant, New York state director for the National Federation of Independent Businesses, said the state earns its low ranking. “The best way to change perception is to change the truth,” Durant said in a news release. “Despite all the slick television advertising and the star-powered endorsements, the truth is that New York remains one of the worst places in the country to do business.” Durant said New York needs lower taxes and fewer regulations. – Sam Barron

for any project seeking assistance. Businesses that want to maximize economic incentives for their project need to realize that to do so they must make the case for why tax incentives are needed for their project. They also need to show that their investment and economic activity from the project will more than justify any government assistance. This analysis can demonstrate the total economic impact or value added by detailing the direct, indirect and induced economic effect of the operational and construction impacts associated with the project. By doing so, the IDAs and economic development practitioners will be able to show local and state elected officials, school districts and the taxpayers a project’s total economic impact over a defined period and validate that the return on investment of public monies was justified and in the best interest of the community economically. These studies should also include a site-cost analysis comparing operating, development, permitting and construction cost from competing sites to certify that the requested economic incentives are needed to make the project happen in the IDA’s jurisdiction.

schools and startup enterprises, relocating out-of-state businesses and expanding New York companies, also would include up to 200,000 square feet of commercial space within one mile of each state campus. Private universities collectively would be allotted a maximum of 3 million square feet of space for tax-free enterprise. Eligible businesses would pay no sales, property and business or corporate taxes and their employees would be exempt from state income taxes for a decade. Following Cuomo’s June 3 sit-down with college presidents and members of the state’s 10 regional economic development councils, SUNY Purchase President Thomas J. Schwartz was among those joining the growing public chorus of endorsements for Tax-Free NY. “A venture than can link to and capitalize on the academic expertise of the campus, while adding value to the college as well as local communities, is one we would fully embrace,” Schwartz said in a statement from the governor’s office. A Purchase-related taxfree community “would generate opportunity for highly creative, entrepreneurial and enterprising initiatives.” Likely the plan’s most vociferous critic to

major health care provider in the county when it takes over Sound Shore Medical Center and Schaffer Extended Care Center in New Rochelle and Mount Vernon Hospital from Sound Shore Health System. The deal, which required Sound Shore to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, is expected to receive U.S. Bankruptcy Court and state Health Department approval by the end of this year. Sound Shore Health System has about 1,200 workers, including 165 physicians affiliated with its two community hospitals. Dr. Steven M. Safyer, Montefiore president and CEO, in the purchase announcement said the medical center looked forward to working with Sound Shore’s doctors, nurses and staff to provide “exceptional care close to home” for the New Rochelle and Mount Vernon communities. Still, the buyer in the purchase agreement stipulated that current Sound Shore employees will be offered employment on a probationary basis under terms and conditions established by Montefiore “in its sole discretion.” Employment will not be offered on the terms of Sound Shore’s collective bargaining agreements with two union locals that represent about 1,200 workers at the two hospitals.

date, state Civil Service Employees Association President Danny Donohue said Cuomo’s proposal would provide yet another tax giveaway to business at the expense of local communities and middle-class jobs. “The governor doesn’t get the fact that more corporate welfare is no answer to New York’s economic challenges,” said Donohue. “No amount of TV ads spinning his record can change the reality that his so-called job creation policies have failed. They have mostly benefitted the super-wealthy and big corporations and repeatedly failed to deliver real growth and middle class jobs.” “The Cuomo administration has very misplaced priorities,” Donohue said. “The governor has the money for the things that help his political agenda and his millionaire friends but he just doesn’t give a fig about working people.” “Gov. Cuomo truly deserves the nickname, ‘Governor 1 Percent,’” the CSEA president added. At the Empire Center for New York State Policy in Albany, founder and senior fellow Edmund J. McMahon on his NY Torch blog said the governor’s offer of full tax exemptions is “a broader and potentially more attractive incentive than the array of targeted tax credits the state offered in the past, while avoiding some of the more egregious abuses of the now-defunct Empire Zones program.”

McMahon added, though, that the TaxFree NY plan is not enough “to give upstate the jolt it needs.” “In the final analysis, highly touted ‘economic development’ programs built on a promise of significant tax relief ultimately beg the same question: if our taxes are such a hindrance to growth, why not reduce them for everyone?” The policy analyst suggested “a more daring approach” would be to phase out the state corporate franchise tax entirely for all businesses operating in the 50-county upstate region. “Sure, the ‘tax free’ promise should be enough to entice some firms into partnerships with some colleges and universities,” McMahon wrote. “But given the reams of red tape that will necessarily apply to projects in one of these relatively small zones, including the requirement that each project be tied to the mission of the college or university involved, the initiative is highly unlikely to generate growth on a game-changing scale.” For businesses admitted to the tax-free zones, “Existing, taxpaying New York competitors of such companies won’t be cheering,” McMahon said. Economist Scott Drenkard at the Tax Foundation, a nonpartisan tax research group in Washington, D.C. , told The Post-Standard of Syracuse that he knew of no other state that sponsored tax-free zones where employees

were exempt from income taxes. “Carving out special tax breaks for certain favored businesses is destructive to the economic playing field,” Drenkard told the Syracuse newspaper. “A much better option in the long run is to go with broader tax bases and as low a tax rate as you can make while still maintaining necessary government services.” At CSEA headquarters in Albany, Donohue said he was extremely concerned that state legislative leaders “seem ready to give the governor a blank check on this latest misguided venture.” The governor’s initial announcement was accompanied by statements of support from Democratic and Republican leaders of the state Senate and Assembly. Sen. Jeffrey D. Klein, co-leader of the Senate majority coalition whose 34th district includes parts of the Bronx and Westchester, called the tax-free zones “the next frontier” in the effort to attract “the best and fastest-growing companies” to New York in the “hypercompetitive global marketplace.” A spokeswoman for the governor said Tax-Free NY legislation is being drafted and will be introduced in the current legislative session. The session ends June 20. The spokeswoman said the governor wants to have the bill passed before lawmakers leave Albany.

One of Sound Shore’s current lenders, Midcap Financial L.L.C., will provide $33 million in debtor-in-possession financing to keep Sound Shore facilities operating until the deal closes. Montefiore will pay a purchase price of $54 million, in addition to the appraised value of furniture, equipment and inventory at Sound Shore facilities. Much of the payment will be applied to Sound Shore liabilities that the buyer will assume. Spicer in his affidavit said the Sound Shore system ended 2012 with assets valued at $159.63 million and liabilities of approximately $200 million. Its operating loss last year was $16.35 million on $241.83 million in revenues. In 2011, Sound Shore’s operating loss was $9.9 million on $243.31 million in revenues. The financial pressures that beset Sound Shore in recent years are shared by many community hospitals that serve a workingclass population, Spicer said in the affidavit. He attributed those pressures to cuts in Medicare and Medicaid funding, declining payments from the state’s indigent care pool and changing demographics in the communities served by Sound Shore. The hospitals serve a disproportionate share of Medicaid and uninsured patients, said Spicer, noting they have 35,000 emergency room visits and 60,000 indigent care clinic visits annually. Starting in 2006, Spicer said, patient vol-

ume and discharges progressively declined and the hospitals saw a reduction in serious illnesses among patient cases. As operating revenues and losses mounted, “Cash book balances were frequently negative and vendor payables increased to over 225 days past due.” Sound Shore’s conversion to an electronic medical record and billing system in 2011 resulted in multiple problems that still have not been fully remedied, Spicer said. The botched conversion caused major delays in billing and cash collections, which led to more financial losses and expenses to resolve the problems. The hospitals relapsed into a “liquidity crisis” and some long-unpaid vendors terminated their services. Driven by the deteriorating financial condition, Spicer said Sound Shore officials last summer retained a troubleshooting financial consulting firm, Alvarez & Marsal, and began the search for the strong health care partner needed by the hospitals “to maintain operations and their charitable mission, achieve administrative efficiencies and reduce overhead costs, attract and retain quality physicians, gain increased access to much needed capital, make necessary capital improvements and implement long-overdue technological upgrades.” State Health Department officials required an “active parent arrangement” where the buyer would commit substantial financial support to the transaction and the ongoing system in New Rochelle and Mount

Vernon. That limited the pool of likely partners, Spicer said, as did New York’s notfor-profit hospital structure, which excluded almost all out-of-state prospects, which largely operate as for-profit institutions. Though Westchester County Health Care Corp. (WCHCC), the owner of Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla, was at the start considered the most likely candidate as the only hospital in the region with the “financial ability, experience and strategic design” to take in the Sound Shore medical centers, Sound Shore also approached Montefiore, North Shore-LIJ Health System and New York University Medical Center. The nonprofit Yale-New Haven Health System in Connecticut was the only out-of-state prospect contacted. North Shore bowed out early, saying the Westchester market was not a priority in its long-range plans, and NYU and Yale also opted out, Spicer said. Sound Shore officials chose to pursue negotiations with WCHCC because officials there wanted to close the deal without a bankruptcy filing. Spicer said those merger talks ended after several months of negotiations because the parties were unable to agree on a “sufficient” purchase payment. Less than a month after Westchester Medical Center announced the end of negotiations in early May, Montefiore and Sound Shore jointly announced their acquisition deal.

Exhibition explores artistic visions for downtown White Plains BY MARY SHUSTACK mshustack@westfairinc.com

Sarah Haviland’s “The Phoenix of ArtsWestchester” welcomes visitors to “Placemaking: Re-envisioning White Plains,” which continues through July 13 at ArtsWestchester in White Plains. Photograph by Emma Benzie.

he latest exhibition at ArtsWestchester’s White Plains headquarters began as a straightforward request, said Janet Langsam, the not-for-profit organization’s CEO. “We asked 25 artists to take a look at downtown White Plains and suggest ways of energizing the city through public art,” she said. The submissions, though, were anything but straightforward, as even the most casual walk through “Placemaking: Re-envisioning White Plains” shows. Continuing through July 13, ArtsWestchester’s “Placemaking” is a vibrant showcase of imagination. The work in the exhibition, curated by Nazanin Hedayat Munroe, is represented by artist renderings and scale models. Designs range from oversize flowers and intricate sculptures to vest-pocket parks and installations that integrate everything from glass sculptures to video projections. Artists and architects were invited to choose from 15 sites throughout one city block, fashioning a virtual arts district along the way. Langsam said she was amazed by the breadth of creativity, but not surprised by it.

“That’s why we have artists,” she said. What did surprise her, though, was how a project that dwells on the hypothetical still brought in so many submissions that “were very do-able.” Kathleen Reckling, the gallery director, said that the project really connected with the participants. “They were asked to animate the streetscape and they really took that to heart.” Susan Cox, a Pound Ridge-based architect-turned-glass artist, proposes the installation of rippling glass banners on the façade of ArtsWestchester’s historic building, for example. Stomu Miyazaki and Momo Miyazaki tackle Renaissance Plaza, creating “Green Ripples,” an oasis complete with rolling lawns. Haifa Bint-Kadi imagines “Nature’s Trail Within,” insetting mosaics that depict plants and species indigenous to the area along the sidewalks. Elizabeth Barksdale creates “Stained Glass Benches,” which echo the aesthetic of the adjacent Grace Church, while Wennie Huang recreates the shadow of a massive tree that once stood outside what is now City Center. Her “Pentimento” is a study in interlocking red chenille pipe cleaners. Even within the varied work, Langsam saw at least one theme emerge: “Everybody Continued on the next page

wanted to bring some nature into the city.” Placemaking, a term used to describe an organized planning of a town or community, also encompasses the idea of how integrating art enhances the quality of life. Here, both White Plains’ history and potential are tapped as a spotlight is trained on what could one day be. “We’re kind of trying to get the conversation started,” Reckling said. “This is kind of a proposal for a plan.” Langsam agreed that the exhibition helps bring to life ideas of what White Plains could become – and offers a very visual way to spark interest and enthusiasm. “We thought people would get their arms around it a little bit better,” she said. Public input and interaction are necessary elements of public art, evidenced throughout “Placemaking,” from designs for decorative bicycle racks to an outdoor stage. And that is the focus of an upcoming talk by Harriet Senie. The director of museum studies and professor of art history at City College and the Graduate Center, CUNY, has written books and articles on public art and will speak June 19 at ArtsWestchester. Senie said she vividly remembers what sparked her interest in public art –seeing Isamu Noguchi’s iconic “Red Cube” outside 140 Broadway in Manhattan. Then a graduate student pursuing her doctoral studies and working part time on Wall Street, she was taken aback by the massive piece. “I couldn’t begin to fathom what it was doing there,” she said. Not only did it spur study, but also shaped her career and has led her to many findings. “Public art is not one thing,” she said during a recent conversation that touched on Maya Lin’s “Eclipsed Time” in Penn Station, teaching public art in public schools and architecture. She talked about how the Park Avenue medians in Manhattan are a noted canvas for public art projects. “You see how it changes a street completely which, of course, is what art can do,” Senie said. In recent decades, Senie added, public art has become a more considered part of business development. “I think it’s become a really integral element in planning, in architecture,” Senie said. “We used to think of the art, especially in modern architecture, the art is the ornament after the fact.” Now it’s more recognized as having a role that goes beyond the artist and who has commissioned the work, encompassing the very community it enhances. And, Senie said, deciding what works in and for a particular setting or audience is a key part of the process. “Who speaks for the community? That is the big issue, who should decide?” she said. And this exhibition is designed to explore the process, Langsam said, in an interactive and illustrative way.

“Writing a proposal is words on paper,” Langsam said. “That’s what we tried to do, make it possible for people to visualize what public art could do for downtown White Plains.” “Placemaking: Re-envisioning White Plains” continues through July 13 at ArtsWestchester, at 31 Mamaroneck Ave. in White Plains. “The Public’s Role in Public Art: A Talk by Harriet Senie” will be presented by ArtsWestchester and the Westchester County Business Journal at 6:30 p.m. June 19 in the first-floor gallery at ArtsWestchester. Admission is free. As seating is limited, RSVPs are requested. Call (914) 428-4220, ext. 306, or email lbanks@artswestchester.org.

Stark expands into Greenwich BY SAM BARRON sbarron@westfairinc.com

T

o the real estate adage “location, location, location,” Adam Stark adds “service, service, service.” His next project is a move to Greenwich, Conn., which clients like for its “cachet, cachet, cachet.” “Clients want that Greenwich address,” Stark said. “It will provide them with more opportunities.” That is one of the reasons that Stark Office Suites, a White Plains-based executive leasing company, has decided to lease 15,000 square feet of office space at the Greenwich Office Park, opening this fall, for clients on a full- and part-time basis. The company, started in 2004, opened in Stamford, Conn., at 243 Tresser Blvd. in 2011. The Greenwich space will increase the company’s footprint by 30 percent, according to company representatives. Stark Office Suites offers business facilities in White Plains, Harrison, Mount Kisco, Scarsdale and Manhattan. The company currently has more than 500 clients, and has experienced an average of 50 percent growth per year. Stark Office Suites subleases from building owners, preferring Class A buildings.

10 June 10, 2013 • WCBJ

Adam Stark, president, said he likes to diversify his office space. His offices in Stamford overlook the major development in the city, while his Manhattan office is across the street from Grand Central Terminal. His offices in Mount Kisco, Scarsdale and Harrison have a different feel, and he is looking to replicate that in Greenwich. “Greenwich will be a great complement to our Stamford office,” Stark said. “The Greenwich office will have a nice suburban feel. We want to meet the different needs of our clients.” Many clients asked for office space for Greenwich, and Stark believes Greenwich will be another successful edition to the company’s growing portfolio. Stark Office Suites specializes in providing clients with “premier services and amenities, offering integrated service.” A client that rents space in Scarsdale can use a conference room in midtown Manhattan. Stark expects his Greenwich clientele to be mostly finance-based. “We’re not for everybody,” Stark said. “Our market is successfully established professional companies.” Stark said many of his Westchester and Fairfield clients request numbers with 212 area codes, which has a certain mystique for businesses.

Before going into office leasing, Stark worked in mergers and acquisitions, but wanted a change. He began by leasing 7,200 square feet of office space in downtown White Plains and watched his business grow, further expanding in Westchester before moving to Manhattan and Fairfield County. “I wanted to be a principal rather than an adviser,” Stark said. “I’ve grown up in this area so I know about it. You have to believe that if you build it, they will come. A local operator has an advantage.” Stark said the difference between his company and other leasing companies is that Stark is about catering to his clients’ needs, not pinching pennies for cheap space. “We offer our clients a full value proposition,” Stark said. “It’s how we’ve been able to grow tremendously. We don’t try to shoehorn. Our Greenwich location is important for some people, but is not for everyone. Some people don’t want to be in downtown Stamford.” An area in which Stark has seen growth is virtual offices, allowing business to have services like receptionists and meeting rooms while saving on office space. Demand for virtual offices has increased 25 percent over the last few years, he said.

Stark also has expanded its offices in New York City and White Plains. Not counting its new space in Greenwich, the company expects to continue expansion by 20 percent each year. Its offices are typically 90 percent occupied. The economic recession and the decline in office parks have not been felt much at Stark. He said companies always need space and it was important to diversify his offices with a mix of city and suburb. Stark has become the largest provider of office space in suburban New York, he said. “We’re always looking for new locations,” Stark said. “But we want to grow at a good rate, be measured. You don’t want to grow too fast.” For office leasing companies to be successful, Stark believes they need to continue to offer innovative services. “Companies that are slow to invest in new services eventually fade out,” Stark said. “We do little things, like increasing our bandwidth sevenfold.” A recent service Stark Office Suites rolled out involves cell phone twinning, syncing up a client’s cell phone and work phone. “You can speak to customers when on the beach without having to give out your cell phone number,” Stark said.

Judge rules against Ridge Hill condo developer BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

Scheinkman on May 30 issued a summary judgment in favor of Ridge Hill developer Forest City Ratner Cos. for its claim that Horizon at Ridge Hill L.L.C., owner of the Monarch condominium tower at Ridge Hill, breached its contract when it failed to make the final $500,000 payment for the nearly 7-acre condo site. Horizon attorneys in court claimed that a half-million-dollar payment in 2010 that Forest City Ratner applied to Horizon’s separate site development bill was meant as the final land payment. The judge also granted Forest City Ratner’s request to evict Horizon from its 10,500-square-foot showroom and sales office in the Ridge Hill office building at 73 Market St. The Brooklyn-based landlord about 10 months ago terminated Horizon’s license to occupy the space. Horizon apparently vacated the office space this year, as its website lists the sales office address as 701 Ridge Hill Blvd., Monarch’s location. Forest City Ratner in a lawsuit filed last year also claimed the developer of the 162-unit Monarch residence owes $588,900 for infrastructure and site development work done by Forest City, $476,055 for submetered electricity used during the Monarch’s construction and at least $42,000 for charges and expenses related to Horizon’s former sales office. The judge has not ruled on those claims. David Marom, managing member of Horizon at Ridge Hill and founder of the Horizon Group, a residential and commercial real estate development and investment company in the metropolitan area, did not return a call for comment. Marom and his company’s Israeli investment partners opened the Monarch in early 2012 as the first of what was to be four condo towers in a planned 500-unit complex on the western edge of Ridge Hill. But only about one-third of the Monarch’s condos reportedly had been sold as of February. A broker this year has shown the condo property for possible purchase by a multifamily residential developer. North Fork Bank, a division of Capital One N.A., holds $62.4 million in mortgages on Horizon’s Ridge Hill property, Westchester County land records indicate.

How to find and keep the right intern By Nick Simard

B

usinesses in many industries and of all sizes pursue the strategy of building formal internship programs for various reasons. Smaller firms may develop a platform to shape future positions within the firm. Alternatively, growing firms may view a formal internship program as a means of offsetting the shorter term cost of additional labor while mitigating the longer term risk of formally taking on new headcount. The common benefit of a formal internship program is that such a program allows an employer and the intern to enter into a nonbinding period of part-time “work” that can generally only be afforded by both parties through an internship. It is important for firms to consider the importance of the viewpoint of the candidate during the internship process. This will help ensure that the experience is valuable for all parties, and that the opportunity for a “long-term interview period” is not squandered on cliché tasks such as making coffee, organizing a stockroom and dusting off that unused back office.

increased utilities? These hard costs should at least be offset by the intern’s enthusiastic contributions to the organization. The largest cost, however, is the amount of time invested in training new interns, which can ultimately result in lost productivity by owners, managers and other existing employees of the firm. Hiring interns is not about bringing in “warm bodies” in the hope that the experience will be fruitful. Warm bodies will drain your human resources and result in a negative experience for all involved. Employers should focus on TWB quality over quantity and be prepared to set 5th Anniversary clear expectations of their interns prior to WCBJ – Group C beginning: 7.375” w timeliness, x 7.125” h hours of operation, readiness to 5/20/13 ask for additional work upon completing a task and so on.

Things to keep in mind Most of the same considerations apply to hiring interns as they do to hiring full-time

staff – are they self-motivated, focused on quality results and dedicated to their work? These skill sets should translate into a successful employee should the internship position ultimately help land them a permanent position within your company. However, during the qualification process, employers must also focus on perceived maturity level, discipline and exposure to some sort of business experience. Has the candidate been fortunate to have come from a family business background or had the opportunity to work during their high school years for a small business in a general capacity? Either of these types of experiences can reasonably translate into greater reliability and more diversified and well-rounded candidates.

member of our internship staff an integral part of the resources and value that our firm brings to our clients. Employers should take the preparation time in advance of the interns arriving to prepare specific job functions and to prepare their workspace. An organization chart should be determined (or updated) to account for these added function(s) and to make reporting structure and accountability clear from the beginning. As you would with any new hire, taking the time to teach your internship staff about your company’s history, clients and marketplace will contextualize the internship from day one and will help yield a more valuable, exciting and fruitful experience for all involved.

Small firm vs. large firm It is important for employers to have a clear understanding of their own organizations when interviewing and evaluating intern candidates. Each individual will have different goals and approaches to their career. Some individuals thrive in a highly structured corporate setting where emphasis is placed on a single area of the company’s operations. Other internship-seekers are more entrepreneurial and thrive with less structure and access to a more fluid environment. Internships with a small company are usually very hands on and may include experience across organizational functions. This broadness is often more extensive than that of an internship with a large organization, which presents the opportunity to gauge strengths in a variety of functions.

The hidden costs of interns Employers must consider the unforeseen costs of hiring interns. While the benefits often and ideally will outweigh these intangibles, they are important elements of the overall analysis. Will there be additional space requirements, additional hardware needs such as computers, more office supplies and

Housing success reaps award Nonprofit has helped thousands; director lauded

BY BiLL FALLON bfallon@westfairinc.com

A

Hawthorne nonprofit boasts an impressive record creating some 2,000 regional housing units since its 1989 inception, all under the guidance of the same woman: Kim Jacobs. Three cheers from a grateful county and a nothing-to-sneeze-at check are headed her way June 13 when she accepts the Stanley Schear Leadership Award, named for the now-deceased Westchester Senior Housing and Services Coalition chairman. Helping with home and small business finances, Community Capital of New York (CCNY) under Jacobs’ leadership last year teamed with Westhab Inc. to convert the former homeless shelter site at 22 Tarrytown Road in Greenburgh into 28 rental units for working families. Other CCNY projects include assisting Grace Church in White Plains with financing of a homeless shelter and the Croton Housing Network on Symphony Knoll at 15 Mount Airy Road, a senior-restricted residence with 11 one-bedroom apartments. It also worked with the Greenburgh

Housing Authority on six home-ownership units on Warren Avenue at the corner of Florence Avenue. And in April it completed renovations on a formerly abandoned 1880s Victorian home in Peekskill, reporting, “A first-time home buyer, who would not have been able to afford to live in Westchester or own a home, will be moving in shortly.” The Victorian is one of 12 affordable homes renovated as part of Westchester County’s neighborhood stabilization program. The nonprofit claims to have assisted a total $341 million in Hudson Valley development, with its efforts amounting to $10 million in annual tax receipts. It also notes just one of its loans equates to five jobs and that the majority – 75 percent – of loan beneficiaries are women and minority clients. CCNY’s small business clients include Sabor Latino restaurant and Sabrosa Deli in New Rochelle, Mancino’s Custom Tailoring and Clothiers in Larchmont and the Peekskill Coffee House. It’s an impressive track record and the county has taken note. Jacobs, long-serving executive director of CCNY, will receive the $3,500 award TO BENEFIT:

and a plaque will be presented at the Westchester Senior Housing and Services Coalition’s breakfast and recognition ceremony at the White Plains Public Library, 100 Martine Ave. CCNY describes itself as “an alternative lender and economic catalyst that revitalizes main streets and helps underserved people in the Hudson Valley become stakeholders in New York’s economy.” Stanley Schear was a leading Westchester advocate for affordable housing who died in 2006. He was a founding board member of the Housing Action Council and fought for the needs of the homeless and for banning racial discrimination in housing. County Executive Robert P. Astorino said Community Capital New York is a leader in developing affordable housing and helping small businesses. “Thanks to Community Capital’s work, more people are able to continue to live in Westchester,” Astorino said. “Its significant contributions and strong partnerships have had a long and positive impact on the county.” Commissioner Mae Carpenter of Westchester County’s Department of Senior Programs and Services (DSPS)

will present Jacobs with the $3,500 check from Atlantic Philanthropies, a sponsor of the program. DSPS is also a sponsor as are the White Plains Public Library and The Wartburg Adult Care Community in Mount Vernon. “We cannot think of a more appropriate recipient of the Stanley Schear Leadership Award than Kim Jacobs and Community Capital New York (CCNY),” said Jane Lindau, chairwoman of the senior housing coalition and director of senior housing with HUD-certified Westchester Residential Opportunities Inc. “As a Community Development Financial Institution, CCNY has been an irreplaceable player in the construction of thousands of units of affordable housing in our region.” Joan P. Arnold, co-founder and executive director of A-HOME, received the award in May 2012 for building and managing affordable housing in northern Westchester. Admission to the June 13 event is free. Reservations are preferred by June 10, but not required. To sign up, contact Jane Lindau at (914) 428-4507 ext. 313 or write: jlindau@wroinc.org.

New Rochelle sweet on Bronx bakery move Central Bronx-based Golden Krust Bakery, which makes and markets Caribbean foods and whose name appears on 120 franchised restaurants in multiple states, recently received a series of inducements to move its headquarters to New Rochelle. The New Rochelle Industrial Development Agency board voted unanimously at its May 20 meeting to approve the application of Golden Krust to move to 125 and 160 Beechwood Ave., a now-empty lowslung warehouse, distribution and manufacturing center of 152,000 square feet with 25-foot ceilings on approximately 4.5 acres, and to facilitate the possible move. A public IDA hearing is set for the end of June, with the exact date to be determined by the agency this week. The IDA said in a preliminary resolution, “It is desirable and in the public interest for the agency to grant financial assistance for the purpose of financing the costs of the acquisition, renovation, reconstruction and equipping of the facility.” The IDA said the effort “is reasonably necessary to discourage the company (Golden

Krust) from moving one or more plants or facilities to a location outside the state and is reasonably necessary to preserve the competitive position of the company in its industry.” “At this point we are only in preliminary discussions with the city of New Rochelle and would prefer not to comment any further on the matter,” said Lowell Hawthorne, president and CEO, responding to a detailed list of questions regarding the family-owned company’s future plans in New Rochelle, employment and investment. Similar word came from Kevin Langtry, senior associate in CBRE’s Stamford, Conn., office and the building agent for the unnamed private seller. “There’s something we’re working on,” he said. “They’re considering the city, but nothing is done yet. We’re hoping something works.” Besides making Jamaican-themed foods such as jerk fish, jerk chicken and Jamaican beef patties, Golden Krust, founded in 1989, supervises 120 restaurant franchises in multiple states from its 3958 Park Ave. headquarters in the Bronx. – Bill Fallon

THOUGHTS OF THE DAY: Build a plan and stick to it. Position your company as influential. Integrate marketing with sales. Monitor results. Look for small changes that can produce big results. When writing your plan for marketing, start with goals. Build a team of parttimers within the company. Hire outside experts as you can afford them. Think about what you want to accomplish both short and long term. Include a budget for both money and time. Make sure you have enough resources available so that your marketing team can be consistent. Exercise discipline. Set a marketing schedule and stick to it. If new ideas crop up, take time to properly vet them. Don’t let the flavor of the week throw your marketing program off course. Diversity is the key, not just what you say, but where you say it. Get the word out through lots of channels. Social media, seminars, webinars, ads in print and online, public relations, white papers – the list of how to tell the world about what you do is endless. Know what points you want to get across. Why do your customers care so much about your company? What kind of history does your company have? What’s unique and special that other prospects need to be aware of? Being influential is more important than being polished. Use marketing to build up devotees. Get the word out that your company matters. Be both professional and social: build a community. Be creative. Don’t worry about getting it perfect. Be interesting. Look for pools of customers and prospects, then focus marketing efforts on getting connected with both. Make your company the centerpiece of the connectivity if you can. Helping people connect to other valuable resources makes your company more valuable, too. Identify niches where your company can shine. Use expertise, product mix, pricing and packaging and connections to resources as ways to stand out. Mirror what you see and hear in specific niches to build relationships. Tell stories people in specific niches can relate to. Romance your prospects. Put your company on display and ask people to engage. Make sure every lead counts by educating your sales people on the efforts that the

company goes through to open new doors, and mine existing niches. Insure proper follow up by providing detailed information on where the lead came from, what similar companies have needed, and who to contact to get optimal play. Ask salespeople to contribute suggestions on where else to look for leads. Ask them to do research with existing customers and prospects. Make their lives easier by organizing activities such as trade shows, lunch-and-learns, and networking events. Check in regularly on all marketing efforts. Record details about where leads come from. Assign someone to keep up on how your social sites are being used. Automate as much as possible; using social media doesn’t have to be time consuming. Look into sites that allow you to schedule Facebook posts and tweets. Learn how to use groups on LinkedIn, and find ones that would be interested in what your company is talking about. Not all prospects are created equal. Go for growth and profit. Focus on targets that are most likely to consistently make high quality purchases. And look for forwardthinking prospects who can be your customers of tomorrow. Establish a system to add qualified prospects every week. Add 10 qualified prospects to the database every week and in a year you’ll have 500 more. Give several people the task of making a few calls every week to gather basic qualifying data on a list of prospects. Set regular follow-up once people do express interest. Don’t give up after one or two tries. Automate follow-ups with useful information that goes out regularly. Periodically call to see if now is a good time to talk. Persistence builds impressions, builds awareness, builds familiarity, which leads to opening doors more easily. Looking for a good book? Try “Do It!

working alliance of nine SUNY schools in the Hudson Valley and Mohawk Valley regions has been awarded a $15 million grant in the second year of the NYSUNY Challenge Grant program created by Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The SUNY Manufacturing Alliance for Research and Technology Transfer (SMART) is one of four projects uniting SUNY schools that will each receive $15 million from a $60 million appropriation included in the 2012-2013 state budget. The manufacturing alliance includes SUNY Institute of Technology near Utica, Westchester Community College, Ulster Community College, Dutchess Community College, Rockland Community College, Orange Community College, Mohawk Valley Community College, Herkimer Community College and Morrisville State College. Cuomo’s office said the schools will cooperatively develop curricula to meet the needs for an effective manufacturing workforce and continuing education

requirements for manufacturing professionals. The partner institutions aim to use the awarded funding to leverage a 5-to-1 return on investment. SMART will operate as the educational core for the Kingston-based Center for Global Advanced Manufacturing (CGAM). CGAM will directly support manufacturers by coordinating education and training of the workforce and by providing business incubation, acceleration and technology transfer facilities in the Mohawk Valley and the Mid-Hudson Valley regions. State officials said training will be scheduled in areas of high demand for both employers and students. The initiative will generate or preserve an estimated 1,700 jobs in the two regions through new product development, process improvements; access to regional, national and global supply chains and employee training and education. – John Golden

At 26 percent, it sounds more like the vig – the loanshark’s cut – than a credit card’s legitimate interest rate. That GE Capital Retail Bank fee and the same fee with its subsidiary CareCredit L.L.C., indeed, caught the attention of the state attorney general. Atty. Gen. Eric T. Schneiderman announced June 3 a settlement agreement with GE Capital Retail Bank and CareCredit that requires “significant new protections” for consumers who use their health care credit card. It can carry an interest rate of over 26 percent. The agreement requires a “coolingoff ” period to give consumers an opportunity to consider the card’s terms and the medical treatment plan; a limit to what the provider can charge in advance; and transparency regarding high interest rates if the charge is not paid off at the end of a certain period. “The explosion of medical credit card debt is a major concern for many New Yorkers, particularly low and middle income households and vulnerable seniors,” said Schneiderman. “This agreement will help New Yorkers by stopping providers from charging large, upfront fees for future services and from glossing over the huge interest rates associated with CareCredit when promoting the credit card to patients.” In New York, GE and CareCredit have authorized approximately 7,800 providers to accept CareCredit and have issued the CareCredit card to more than 535,000 New Yorkers. Dental work comprises some 60 percent of CareCredit’s business. Schnweiderman said about a quarter of those issued cards end up paying a 26.99 percent interest rate on their bills.

Assemblywoman seeks state bank

North Dakota has one. Maybe New York should, too. That was the thrust of State Assemblywoman Sandy Galef’s legislation, rolled out June 3, that would create a commission “to investigate the feasibility of establishing a New York state bank.” “I have been approached by constituents, economists, and banking experts

who believe that a state bank would be a boon to our economy, particularly in making credit available to small businesses, and helpful to our municipalities for their infrastructure needs,” Galef said in statement. Galef was joined by Scott Baker, New York coordinator for the Public Banking Institute. Baker said: “There is no fiscal crisis.There is an allocation-of-funds crisis and a credit-creation crisis. We can solve both by re-purposing some of New York state’s revenues to provide startup capital for a state bank. Thereafter, we can use tax dollars to provide ongoing credit, as the Bank of North Dakota has done successfully since 1919.” Town of Lewisboro Councilman Dan Welsh said: “Local governments should support the creation of a public bank. It’s a proven strategy which can lower borrowing costs for desperately needed investments in long-neglected infrastructure, support small business by directing credit to local banks, and provide a revenue stream to plug the gap at the state level among other benefits.” Barbara L. Edwards, chairwoman of the Leadership Resource Group of Westchester County, said: “Public banking will give New York State influence over the process of financial intermediation and will allow the government to use the banking industry as a lever to advance its economic development efforts.”

State and SUNY union agree to contract

Gov. Andrew Cuomo and United University Professions (UUP) President Frederick Kowal announced the state and the union have come to an agreement on a five-year contract affecting 35,000 employees. Union members, who had been without a contract since 2011, voted 77 precent in favor of the new pact. According to the State Budget Office, the agreement will save approximately $87 million in wages through a deficit reduction program over the contract period. Changes to health benefits will save $99 million over the contract period. The employees will receive no salary increases from 2011 to 2013 and a 2 percent increase in 2014 and 2015. Employees earning less than $40,137 will contribute two percent more to their health insurance, while employees earning more than $40,137 will contribute 6 percent more to their health insurance. “Our members understand the challenging times in which these negotiations took place,” Kowal said in a statement. “We are very pleased to deliver a fair and equitable contact to our members.”


Con Ed plans $1 billion in improvements BY SAM BARRON sbarron@westfairinc.com

A

fter Hurricane Sandy, many gave Consolidated Edison Inc. a failing grade. The utility is looking to change that. On May 28, the company announced $1 billion on storm protection measures in Westchester County and New York City. Con Edison will invest $475 million in its electric distribution system, hoping to limit the damage from storms and reduce power outages. More than 1 million customers lost power during Hurricane Sandy, a third of Con Ed’s customers. Con Ed also announced it would pursue burying 30 miles of power lines in Westchester in 2015 and 2016, a $200 million project. To bury all of its overhead systems, the utility estimates, would cost $60 billion. Con Ed wants another $300 million to be directed at other storm remediation efforts. Chris Olert, a spokesman for Con Ed, said the company did not know where in Westchester the power lines might be buried, but company executives are currently talking with municipalities. He said the project is being funded completely by Con Ed and would be paid for as part of a proposed rate increase. The project must be approved by the state Public Service Commission in conjunction with the rate increase. A ruling is expected by the end of the year. Olert warned burying power lines is not a simple proposition. “It’s not like changing a light bulb,” he said. “Streets will be dug up, there could be traffic tie ups. There will be the potential for inconvenience, though we will attempt to minimize it. Digging up a street means digging up a street. There’s no pretty way to do it.” Burying power lines could also cause headaches for municipalities who might have to move water and sewer lines to accommodate the digging. Despite the potential problems, Greenburgh Supervisor Paul Feiner is in favor of Con Ed burying power lines. Greenburgh was one of the towns hardest hit by Sandy, with more than 9,000 people in unincorporated Greenburgh losing power, some for up two weeks. “This is a step in the right direction,” Feiner said. “Power outages will be reduced and the time to restore power will be shorter. There will be some inconveniences, but no pain is no gain.” Feiner said he would lobby to ensure Greenburgh is one of the first towns to get its power lines buried. WCBJ • June 10, 2013

Nicholas Caputo, attorney for AAA Contracting said his client filed the lawsuit after failing to reach a resolution with the solid waste commission. He said Navigant Consulting Inc., the company the commission wanted his client to appoint as auditor, was too expensive. Caputo said AAA decided to file the lawsuit before the four-month statute of limitations ran out. “It would have a bad effect on business,” Caputo said. “We tried to work it out with the solid waste commission. We got close on many issues; I thought we could come to an agreement.” AAA Carting’s owners, Pat Cartalemi Jr. and his son, Pat Cartalemi, face charges of extortion and extortion conspiracy. Caputo said AAA filed in Putnam County Court because Caputo felt he would have a better shot than arguing in Westchester. He said AAA Carting has offered to hire its own auditor. “We have a good relationship with the solid waste commission; I understand they are doing what they need to do,” Caputo said. “There’s no bad blood.” Bruce Berger, executive director of the solid waste commission, declined comment.

Yonkers city officials recently welcomed the first retail tenant at the former Yonkers Public Library building on downtown Main Street. Deals Stores. the discount retailer, held a grand opening June 5 in a 9,500-square-foot ground floor space at 7 Main St., a threestory building originally leased by Genung’s Department Store in 1933. The property has been vacant since the city’s main library relocated to the new Riverfront Library in 2002. The streetfront retail space is part of a $10.6 million redevelopment of the approximately 80-year-old building by Fidelco Realty Group, based in Millburn, N.J. Fidelco is the sole remaining partner in Yonkers of Struever Fidelco Cappelli L.L.C., the city’s downtown master developer. Fidelco expects to open 23 upper-floor housing units in the fall as The Library Lofts. The city of Yonkers was awarded a $5.45 million state grant for the redevelopment from the Empire State Development Corp. Restore New York Communities Initiative. The program provides municipalities with financial assistance to revitalize commercial and residential properties, especially blighted or abandoned ones, to encourage neighborhood growth.

Deals previously opened a Yonkers store at 896 McLean Ave. Its parent company, Dollar Tree Inc. operates more than 4,700 discount variety stores in 48 states and five Canadian provinces with total retail selling space of 41.2 million square feet. Founded in 1986, the company is based in Chesapeake, Va.

Lawyers help vets battle bureaucracy

Returning warriors in need of help may be no match for the Social Security Administration. The Legal Services of the Hudson Valley (LSHV), with seven offices, is looking to level the playing field and make it less of a battlefield. The nonprofit LSHV was recently recognized for its advocacy work by the Warrior Transition Unit at West Point. The command staff of the Warrior Transition Unit presented LSHV’s Veterans and Military Families Advocacy Project with a certificate of appreciation in recognition of LSHV’s representation of soldiers in Social Security disability benefits appeals. The Warrior Transition Unit helps wounded and traumatized soldiers and manages their care until they transition back to active duty or civilian status. “These benefits are critical to ensuring that soldiers separated from the Army as a result of their injuries are able to transition back to civilian life without disrupting their medical care,” said Virginia Foulkrod, staff attorney for the advocacy project. Her work on behalf of veterans and members of the military resulted in back awards and ongoing benefits, LSHV reported. Said Barbara Finkelstein, CEO, Legal Services of the Hudson Valley: “The goal of the project is to provide free legal advice and direct representation to veterans in civil legal matters. Together with our partners, we are part of a comprehensive network of providers who address the unique challenges that veterans and their families confront. We are constantly seeking to expand this network and enhance our programming in order to better serve those who have served our country.” Services include counseling and advocacy for veterans and their families affected by traumatic brain injury and post traumatic stress disorder, housing, employment assistance, healthcare benefits, benefit case management, counseling for military sexual trauma and domestic violence, child care resources, shelter, addiction and substance abuse counseling. The LSHV’s offices are at: 90 Maple Ave., White Plains; 30 S. Broadway, Yonkers; 100 E. First St., Mount Vernon; 137 N. Division St., Peekskill; 147 Union St., Poughkeepsie; 101 Hurley Ave., Kingston; and 1 Corwin Court, Newburgh. – Bill Fallon, Sam Barron, John Golden

TAkING LIvEABILITY To ANoTHER LEvEL

With Public Art Arts And Culture As Amenities

Beginning tHe ConversAtion

A livable city, as the phrase has evolved, means a metro area with a quality of life that includes among its amenities arts and culture. Taking livability to the next level, many urban planners are fostering “placemaking” as a cornerstone of livability. Placemaking is a term that has come to define the organized planning of a town or community. It embraces the notion that the arts and green space are as vital to a community’s appeal as basic amenities like public transportation or restaurants. The term has become part of the parlance of planers, urban designers, architects and municipal officials, and has been further clarified by the NEA (National Endowment for the Arts) as “creative placemaking”, that is “using the arts strategically to, to shape the physical and social character of a neighborhood, town, tribe, city, or region around arts and cultural activities.” Creative Placemaking puts the arts smack in the center of efforts to revitalize, add vibrancy, and enhance livability. Developing a cultural district is an example of a creative placemaking strategy, as is clustering galleries, music venues and artist studios. Placemaking begins with collaborations, which lead to the design of holistic communities where residents can work, live and play in the same location. Many cities are turning to designated cultural districts as one way to animate public and private spaces, rejuvenate structures and streetscapes, and improve local business viability and public safety. As an example, in Pittsburgh, a 14-block area was revitalized and transformed with the creation of a critical mass of performing arts venues, galleries, parks and a high school for creative and performing arts. Another cultural initiative, The Philadelphia Mural Arts program, redirected the skills of graffiti artists and invigorated the streetscape throughout the city. Here in our own county, a Richard Haas mural in Yonkers serves as a gateway to the city’s waterfront. The artist says one of his goals was “to turn an eye sore into an icon.” In Lower Manhattan, the TriBeca Film Festival brought life back to an area devastated after 9-11. The success of these ventures rests upon the inclusion of artists in the early stages of the planning process, as opposed to reaching out to the artistic community after most of the critical decisions are already set in stone.

Mural by Richard Haas in Yonkers

Here in Westchester County, where livability and accessibility are top priorities for future growth, there are many opportunities for developers and city planners to collaborate with artists in innovative ways to build more interesting, lively and functional residential and commercial complexes. Indeed, as Westchester County searches for its niche in the New York State tourism realm, it might look no further than the current assets of public art already located in the PepsiCo Sculpture Garden and on the campus of Purchase College as the core a of public art vision for the county. Perhaps, if we continue to build it, they will come. - Janet T. Langsam

PLACEMAkING:

Re-Envisioning White Plains Exhibition Begins a Conversation What can art do to change the face of a city? How can art distinguish a neighborhood, or make it more inviting? These are the questions behind ArtsWestchester’s exhibition, “Placemaking: Re-envisioning White Plains,” curated by Nazanin H. Munroe and on view until July 13, 2013. As a demonstration project, local artists examined one-square block in the heart of the city and imagined creative public art projects for key locations. They were asked to create pieces that respond to the environment, history, diversity and culture of the city. Not simply “plopart,” the artists were prompted to envision engaging and relevant “site-specific” works. The 26 renderings, scale models, and video projections on display in ArtsWestchester’s Peckham and Shenkman Galleries represent a wide range of possibilities for art in the city.

ing the surrounding fountains. ArtsWestchester’s bank vault showcases a proposal by Christopher kaczmarek in which Macy’s Court Street façade is transformed into a movie screen. If realized, local and international, emerging and seasoned artists alike could exhibit their time-lapse visions on the blank wall, bringing new audiences to the city’s center. The exciting proposals are all hypothetical, but inspire residents to consider the vast potential for a cultural district in downtown White Plains.

Architect-turned-glass artist Susan Cox has installed two rippling colorful glass banners in the gallery. The vibrant pieces are scaled models of larger glass banners that might adorn ArtsWestchester’s historic landmark building at 31 Mamaroneck Avenue. These translucent banners would send a cascade of colored light down the façade and announce the building as a home for the arts.

City of White Plains proposed cultural district.

Several artists were inspired to bring a bit of nature into the busy urban setting. A key location for such projects is Renaissance Plaza, where artists looked to create a welcoming haven for residents.

Popping up in the Modern Landscape Cities throughout the united States are using public art to stimulate the development of their downtowns, activating the economy and the public’s sense of pride and place. In Westchester, public art projects have been implemented from Yonkers to Peekskill to stimulate neighborhood identity and to attract visitors to city locations. In both Yonkers and Peekskill outdoor sculpture has been placed along the backdrop of the Hudson River, activating the landscape with color and form. In fact, in Yonkers, The Blue Door Artist Association has been working with the City for over six years to install works of local sculptors in Washington Park at Yonkers City Hall and at waterfront sites. These rotating exhibitions include works of steel, marble, ceramics and even aluminum mesh. organized in Peekskill by the Hudson valley Center for Contemporary Art (HvCCA), “Peekskill Project v” is a city wide installation of contemporary artwork at the center, in pop-up galleries, in parks and in empty lots in 15 locations throughout the city and at the museum. With art at every turn and five sculptures installed in Riverfront Green Park, the city is transformed to an open air gallery by way of the public art. By design, the outdoor works draw the viewer into the HvCCA’s galleries to further explore paintings, sculptures and installations by 40 more artists.

Sculpture on the Waterfront Promenade, Yonkers, NY, by Boaz Vaadia

Three Westchester cities are in the midst of planning public art installations. They are Mount vernon, Yonkers and New Rochelle. Funded, in part, by ArtsWestchester through a state grant, a colorful steel installation of spinning totems by Rochelle Shicoff and John Cipora will soon find a home in downtown Mount vernon. The grouping of eleven painted wands with animals at the top, each measuring ten feet by four inches were inspired by traditional African medicine sticks, royal staffs and trader staffs. The playful, yet solid presence of the outdoor sculpture will inspire interaction and imagination from both young and old. In New Rochelle, vibrant fabric paintings have been designed to enliven the exterior of the New Rochelle Public Library. using color, pattern, shape and scale, artist Dale Zheutlin has created an enticing invitation to visit the library. Five banners, evoking the luminance of stained glass, will enhance the New Rochelle Public Library as a landmark with a powerful new visual identity. And in Yonkers, a major work celebrating the freeing of enslaved Africans is planned.This project will commemorate the lives of enslaved Africans who lived at the Philipse Manor Hall in Yonkers, New York – six of whom were the first to be manumitted by law in the united States in 1787 seventy-six years before the Emancipation Proclamation. on the cutting edge of public art, the MTA (Metropolitan Transit Authority) has seeded art in the subways and

train stations, making the journey more pleasurable. Notably, in Westchester are works of art designed for train stations in Briarcliff, Cortlandt, Dobbs Ferry, Eastchester, Harrison, Hartsdale, Larchmont, Mount vernon, ossining, Peekskill, Pleasantville, Port Chester, Rye, Scarsdale, Tarrytown, Tuckahoe, White Plains and Yonkers. MTA Arts for Transit commissions public art which is then installed in MetroNorth Railroad train stations. Through its Capital Program, the MTA assigns a portion of the funds to commission works of art. According to the MTA Arts for Transit, their projects “create links to neighborhoods with art that echoes the architectural history and design context of the individual stations.” With a surge of interest in the use of public art to create livable, vibrant cities, Westchester is poised to become a regional destination for public art. Following a national trend, more of our cities are turning to designated cultural districts and public art installations as strategies for revitalization. And, these continued innovative arts partnerships are sure to inspire the creation of new works of art.

ossining Entices visitors with Public Art To celebrate its bicentennial, the village of ossining has erected a large-scale 25-piece outdoor sculpture exhibit that will be on display through october 26, 2013. It’s quite the sight. The exhibition winds its way through yards, sidewalks, and plazas, interspersed among the town’s historic buildings and along the banks of the waterfront. Next to the Trinity Episcopal, a blue circle incandesces from the thousands of light-reflecting sequins embedded in its surface. Stained glass windows line the walls of the ossining Train Station overpass, while a mélange of abstracted car parts looms on the lawn of the Washington School. The selection is that diverse, ranging from traditional methods to exuberant pop art, woodwork to steel forgery. Installed in just two days, the entire exhibit is a feat of near-monumental proportions, the combined effort of careful planning and passionate artistic vision. It’s true the sculptures could have been presented in one centralized location. It would have made viewing them more convenient, and the environment created by having so much art in one place would certainly have been aesthetically nourishing. But by being distributed all over ossining, the exhibit makes a statement. It presents the town as interconnected; a place where creativity and inspiration can arise from any corner or street, where art is absorbed so completely that it runs through the body of ossining like lifeblood. Moreover, because the sculptures are so widely dispersed, a tour would require walking through the heart of ossining, taking in the personality of the town along with the exhibit itself. Really, the town’s architecture and social atmosphere are as much on display as the sculptures, which serve only to enrich ossining’s preexisting character. on the first Saturday of october, a docent-led walking tour will be available to the public, and reservations can be made by calling 914.762.6232. Additionally, maps for self-guided tours of the 1.5 mile sculpture walk are available online at www.villageofossining.org and www.celebrateossining.com, as well as at each sculpture location. - Jonah Jeng

About Percent for Arts Programs How do communities develop and sustain public art? In the late 1950’s Philadelphia passed the first percent-for-arts-mandate, requiring a small portion of the construction cost of public art projects for the inclusion of artwork. Gradually, other municipalities followed the Philadelphia model. Today, more than 300 cities, counties, states and federal agencies have adopted percent-for art-programs. As the momentum for public art grew, municipalities developed ordinances customized to meet their vision. Some communities require one-percent of construction budgets to be set aside for public art; many communities require more. Many programs are not restricted to government construction, but require developers to set aside funds. Public art funds may be structured to support original art work that is integrated into the new construction, or they may support the creation and installation at other sites. Communities throughout the nation have developed these mechanisms to ensure that public art is woven into the fabric of the built environment.

mortgage scene stabilizes

The economic crisis is passing, but its credit effect remains BY BiLL FALLON bfallon@westfairinc.com

W

hen John Ritacco joined Mount Vernon-based Community Mutual Savings Bank in 2005 as president and CEO, the forces that would eat the economy were bundling subprimes and hawking them like blue chips. Business name-droppers could still mention Lehman Brothers and Bear Stearns – both shuttered by ’08 – with pride. When he answered the phone May 30 in the bank’s White Plains administrative office, the storm, if it has not passed, is passing and CMS’ five branches – in Silver Lake, Greenburgh, Mount Kisco, Eastchester and the Mount Vernon headquarters – remain open for business. Ritacco said for those with good credit in the mortgage hunt, “Not much has changed.” He cited the credit score of 660 as a line of demarcation. Those below it will be asked for 20 percent or more down payment when before some of them put down very little with little credit history to support the deal, the socalled no-doc and low-doc loans. “They were

riding their equity,” he said, “drawing from it, and the properties fell in value. “All of it came home to roost for some: more debt than value of the house, a lost job – one spouse loses a job or both lose their jobs – the value underwater; they cannot sell,” Ritacco said. And for those who got in over their heads, regardless of blame, “People have had their credit affected in a very material way.” “We saw some delinquencies,” Ritacco said. “But not too many. Not much has changed for us. As a community bank we’ve always met underwriting guidelines in a traditional way.” CMS writes about 70 mortgages per year totaling some $35 million, making the average loan $500,000. A weather eye on income-expense ratios remains standard procedure and always has been, even as the bank remains keen on personal service. “We can’t tell people with a big enough megaphone how easy it is to get from application to closing,” Ritacco said. “The advantage we have is the ability to turn around loans much quicker,” he said. “There is a frustration among many

applicants; with the big banks they wait for months on end with no response. We did three mortgages like that in the last month: people who were completely frustrated with large banks and came to us and reapplied.” “It can be frustrating for the buyer,” said Chris Meyers, managing principal, Rye Brook-based Houlihan-Lawrence. “It can delay closings; it’s become a rather tedious process.” But, he said, “I think there’s wisdom in the current lending standards. “In an environment where liquidity is strong, if the credit rating is above 700, there should be no problem with a loan today,” Meyers said. “That was not the case three years ago.” Houlihan-Lawrence has for the last five years partnered with Wells Fargo in Thoroughbred Mortgage, owned 50-50. Thoroughbred originated 650 mortgages in 2012 valued at $320 million. By the end of June, Meyers said Thoroughbred should hang a shingle saying just that – Thoroughbred – under the sole ownership of Houlihan-Lawrence. For now, however, the name remains locked in state Department

of Taxation and Finance paperwork and Thoroughbred does business as Silvermine Ventures L.L.C in Rye Brook. Pennsylvania-based Customers Bancorp Inc. and CMS, meantime, initiated a merger in August 2012. Ritacco said that in April the agreement to merge was extended through the end of the year. “For us,” he said, “it’s business as usual.” Experian, which tracks credit scores with 17,000 employees in 44 countries, places the average New York mortgage-seeking credit score at 728 for 2011, its most recent data. At Silvermine, Senior Vice President Dan Duggan said the 660 credit rating was a reasonable barometer for acquiring a mortgage. Still, “The bar is higher than before the crisis. Generally there is a higher level for the down payment and a higher credit score is required; it has affected lending.” Despite that, Duggan said the sales market has improved. “We are seeing a pick up in the purchase market: up 10 to 12 percent on purchases between a year ago and now.” Silvermine works in Westchester, Putnam Mortgage, page 33

Grasslands could host medical complex BY SAM BARRON sbarron@westfairinc.com

J

ohn J. Fareri’s plans for a medical and biotechnology campus in Westchester gains momentum and friends each day. Eager for approval, he has already scotched medical housing on the proposed owned site. Fareri, president and CEO of Fareri Associates L.P. in Greenwich, Conn., wants to develop 60 acres of county-owned land within the 512-acre Grasslands Reservation adjoining Westchester Medical Center in the town of Mount Pleasant. Fareri owns 20 acres of land adjoining the property. A request for qualifications (RFQ) was issued by the county last year. Fareri presented his revised plans for the project at a Mount Pleasant Town Board work session on June 5 as he continues to negotiate with the county to lease the Grasslands property. The first phase of the 800,000-squarefoot, $500 million project includes 150,000 square feet of office space for medical practices and 300,000 square feet for a medical facility that would likely involve Westchester Medical Center and New York Medical College. Both centers have praised Fareri’s planned development. The project would feature 70,000 square feet of retail, including a health-conscious grocery store that would serve prepared food. A pharmacy, restaurant, bank and offices are also proposed for the site, along with a day care center, bringing retail services and downtown amenities to the physically isolated medical center and New York Medical College campuses. A 120-room hotel would also be built, designed for patients and families to stay in before and after surgery. The second phase of the project would see a campus designed for biotechnology and medical research, creating more than 2 million square feet of development. “This will provide a lot of jobs,” Bruce Komiske, project executive for Fareri Associates, said. “We want to create a critical mass in this area.” Komiske said parking would be underneath the buildings and would have a minimal impact on the nearby neighborhoods. “There is a major landscape buffer,” Komiske said. “Access would be through Route 9 and the Sprain Brook Parkway.” Fareri said there has been interest from a number of different companies, but no companies will commit until the project receives the necessary approvals. Town board officials have cited the potential for millions in tax revenue for the town. Given an agreement with the county

on the property, the project would require a zoning change and site plan approvals from the town planning board, as well as State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA) approval through the town board. Fareri said he is fulfilling the county’s vision to become the intellectual capital of the state. “We want this to be a cluster of pharmaceutical companies,” Fareri said. “These companies feed off each other. We are trying to create demand. I think this will benefit everybody. It will help bring in jobs; it will help Westchester Medical Center and New York Medical College and give the economy a boost.” Fareri, the father of a 13-year-old who died from rabies, with his family raised some $40 million in donations and built the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center that opened in 2004.

support.

Fareri said the Children’s Living Science Center, a 60,000-square-foot to 80,000-square-foot facility proposed for the health and science park, is designed to give youths an education in healthy and unhealthy behavior and diseases “that keeps children out of the (Maria Fareri) hospital.” Fareri Associates dropped plans for housing for medical residents and fellows on the site after the town board objected. The company also said it will conduct a traffic study during the SEQRA process. Fareri said he plans to host meetings with the community and work to generate support. “I look forward to continuing this dialogue with the town board and the community,” Fareri said. “We want to attract these biotech (companies) to Westchester and bring in high-paying jobs.”

independence.

Fareri said he hopes to have a lease signed with the county in the coming months. William Mooney III, a senior adviser to County Executive Robert Astorino, said the county is continuing to work with Fareri and is obtaining an appraisal and evaluating the value of the property. “We think this is a great economic development,” Mooney said. “It’s a unique opportunity to develop county-owned land for job opportunities. This fits wonderfully with our goal of bringing biotech to Westchester.” Previous proposals for the fallow North 60 property included a simulcast theater for the New York Racing Association in 1992, a biomedical research center in 2002 and a continuing-care community center in 2005. An autism center was proposed for the site last year.

BY GERRY HOULiHAN

have been asked to give my opinion on the current state of the local commercial real estate market and compare it with the rollercoaster ride that has been the last decade. I started my second career – after 20 years a restaurateur – as a commercial real estate agent and business broker in April 2002 as the economy was still finding its footing after a mild recession and the attacks of 9/11. It took me six long months to close my first deal, but from there things just took off. From 2003 to 2008, I was closing 14 to 16 deals a year. It was a great time to be in real estate. Everyone was busy and it seemed like there was no end in sight. The first time I really felt the market shudder on its climb to some unreachable summit was late 2007. Deals were still getting done, but things were starting to stall. While there was still activity in the commercial market in 2008, the collapse of Lehman Brothers was the final blow; the market stopped. Nobody knew we were about to experience the deepest, longest bear market in real estate the country had ever seen. All the money – the easy financing – evaporated overnight. In 2009, I closed four deals; six in 2010. This was bad. My brothers and cousins, who have all been doing this longer than I have, all said it was the worst market they had ever seen. In 2011, things started to get better and 2012 was surprisingly a good year. Where does that leave us now? The great recession is over, but its impact is still being felt as our market shifts into a cautious, but optimistic, mood. A lot of people and their businesses did not make it and a lot us still standing are sporting postrecession scars. I think everyone realizes now that the numbers really do matter and that upward momentum is not a guarantee that rents and values will continue to rise. Things are definitely better, but this is not the better we knew in 2002 and variations on the word are found in every corner of the market. Here is a quick review of what I am seeing in multifamily, commercial and retail sales, retail leasing and restaurant business sales markets. Hands down, the hottest segment in the market is multifamily properties with six or more units. There are numerous reasons for this, but the biggest factors are low interest rates and the fact that banks will finance these loans because they are considered low risk. You

put all of this together and you have a market that has more buyers than sellers and, therefore, prices are high and deals are moving fast. My brother Dan and I have recently worked on three multifamily deals in Westchester and the Bronx. All three had multiple offers within weeks of coming to market. Now, two deals are already closed and a third is near contract. The multifamily segment was the least affected by the crash and many market participants see prices at all-time highs compared with net operating income. Retail commercial sales have been strong, specifically if the property is multi-tenant and has a very low history of vacancies. I recently sold a small 3,600 square foot building on South Forth Avenue in Mount Vernon. All four tenants were current and the building was in good condition. The owner listened to our advice and it was priced correctly. We had a lot of activity leading to an all cash offer within three months. Single tenant, owner occupied buildings, such as, stand-alone restaurants can still be a challenge, but a worthwhile one. I am working on a restaurant deal now were the business owner also owns the real estate. In deals like this, there are two separate contracts: one for the business and one for the real estate. Contracts are signed and the buyers have a commitment letter from the bank, which would not have looked at a deal like this during the depths of the recession. The retail leasing segment is a mixed bag, varying dramatically depending on location and the type of space for lease. The majority of retail space in Westchester can be broken into two categories: premium shopping centers, like Vernon Hills Shopping Center in Scarsdale, and downtown shopping districts that have always been part a part of Westchester’s unique charm. With low vacancies and rents at all time highs, the top-tier shopping centers in lower Westchester are doing very well. It is not uncommon for the base rents in such centers to be $70 per square foot or more. In addition, the tenant pays the pro-rata share of real estate taxes and common area maintenance charges which can be an additional $10 to $15 per square foot. The premium retail segment of the market is growing as exemplified by The Ridge Hill Shopping Center in Yonkers, which added 1.2 million square feet of retail and entertainment space. The proposed River Town Square in Dobbs Ferry will add an additional 50,000


rEAL ESTATE square feet of new retail space, plus a Sundance movie theater and a new supermarket. Add in the several new White Plains retail developments and the Echo Bay project in New Rochelle, which are all in some stage of the approval process, and it appears the demand for this type of space is strong; a real contrast to the market lows of four years ago. With some exceptions, the demand for retail space for lease in lower Westchester’s downtown shopping districts is rebounding, but is not yet at pre-recession levels. Vacancies are lower, but the time it takes to fill a vacancy is still markedly slower than the bull market of yesteryear. Landlords are making more contributions, in some deals, in the form of landlord work, free rent or a combination of both. I am currently working on four restaurant leases in downtown shopping districts and in each deal, the spaces have been available for well over year. In general, retail rents in this segment have made moderate increases over the last few years, but there is a large variation of the rents per square foot from town to town. From what I have seen over the last five to six years, the industrial warehouse market has not recovered. Dan and I have worked on a half-dozen deals that have all taken over a year to two to complete. I sold a warehouse last year for $78 per square foot. In 2007, I sold

That impacted any market with a higher share than average of higherpriced homes. That’s changed. More players are seeking jumbo loans. “The portfolio managers are not diving into the market,” he said of the real estate-investment market, “but they’re certainly getting interested.”

Staging a comeback

Nonprofit hopes to revitalize icon BY PATRICK GALLAGHER pgallagher@westfairinc.com

A

ndrew D. Kydes began as an usher at the Globe Theatre in the late 1960s, as soon as he was old enough to work. He and his wife, Mary A. Kyriakides, bought the circa-1915 Norwalk, Conn., icon four decades later in 2007 with hopes of restoring it to its former status as a community and cultural hub. The theater at 71 Wall St. was prominently featured in the Wall Street Redevelopment Plan approved by the Norwalk City Council in 2004. At one point it was thought to be a central component in plans by POKO Partners L.L.C., of Port Chester, to build a

mixed-use retail and residential development in the surrounding neighborhood. But due to a series of disagreements between the theater owners and POKO that were exacerbated by the economic crisis, a proposed sale of the theater to POKO fell through and it has gone largely untouched since while the remainder of the development has moved closer to the first phase of construction. Now, however, the theater plans have been resuscitated by a former stagehand who has proposed to restore the Globe as a digitally equipped center for the performing arts. “The plan is, not only are we going to renovate it within a historic context, but we’re going to outfit it with some of the most

technologically advanced equipment on the market,” said Frank Farricker, president of Wall Street Theater Co. Inc., a nonprofit that is under contract to purchase the Globe from Kyriakides. Once completed, the project would feature a 780-seat theater with 24 fixed-position cameras and digital technology capable of streaming video over the web. “We’ve designed the theater to be probably the only digitally streaming theater that’s in this whole area, outside of New York City,” Farricker said. He said clients could range from major production outfits to corporations looking to stream an event to a community theater ensemble. “We’ve designed it to have very sig-

nificantly discounted rates for community groups,” Farricker said. “A musician’s grandmother, for example, could watch them play the cello from Florida. ... We’re very, very excited about the depth of offerings.” Asked last week at a public open house whether he thought the theater could be restored to the luster of its past, Kydes said Farricker’s group would take the Globe “beyond that.” “Frank is the right person to initiate the rehabilitation and redevelopment of this building,” said Kydes, who will have no involvement with Wall Street Theater Co. following the sale. “And the area needs a lift, something to get it going, because it’s been blighted for so long. And I think there’s a tremendous need for culture here.”

Project hinges on federal loan On the surface, the project appears to be daunting. The Globe, which was originally a vaudeville theater and which has since had a range of uses – from a movie theater to a nightclub, has gone unused for a decade. The theater has been stripped of all its seats and is in need of significant interior repairs, electrical upgrades, a new HVAC system and environmental remediation actions, such as the removal of asbestos. Farricker estimates the project will cost $7.5 million. Because the theater is central to the Wall Street Redevelopment Plan, Wall Street Theater Co. is seeking a $2 million lowinterest federal loan, known as a Section 108 loan guarantee, from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to help finance the project. The remainder of the project would be financed through a series of tax credits and private equity, Farricker said. The federal loan, if approved, would be secured through the Community Development Block Grant program that is administered by HUD. Because the loan would be guaranteed by the city’s CDBG allocation, the city must submit the financing application on Wall Street Theater Co.’s behalf, said Timothy Sheehan, executive director of the Norwalk Redevelopment Agency. The redevelopment agency, which is CDBG administrator for the city, has drafted a Section 108 application for HUD financing that must first be approved by the Norwalk City Council before it can be submitted for federal approval.

Frank Farricker, president of Wall Street Theater Co., stands inside the Globe Theatre in Norwalk.

Sheehan said members the city’s Planning Commission have requested that Wall Street Theater Co. conduct a market study to ensure the financial viability of the project before approving the Section 108 application, but emphasized that the theater’s redevelopment is a priority. “The Globe Theatre has always been an integral part of the Wall Street Redevelopment Plan,” Sheehan said. “To have regular programming at that theater that could attract (hundreds) of people certainly would be a huge regional attraction to Wall Street.” MaryGrace Weber, special projects manager for the redevelopment agency, added, “Leaving that theater as it is right now is not an option. ... Having that as an asset in that area of town will be a very good thing.” Farricker, for his part, said Wall Street Theater Co. plans to conduct a full market study, but said the business plan is financially sound. “We think we’ll be the best-capitalized theater in the state,” Farricker said. We have great intentions on what we want to do artistically and for the community, but the one thing we want to do above all is make sure we’re open well past my time.”

Reconciliation with POKO Despite the past disagreements between

the theater owners and POKO, representatives of both parties say that is all in the past. “The plan, as I understand it, is for (Wall Street Theater Co.) to turn the theater back on and use it as an entertainment center, and we love that,” said Kenneth Olson, founder and CEO of POKO. “We think it’s a great idea. We think the cool thing about Norwalk ... is it has an arts culture, it has a civic culture. What it lacks in the Wall Street area is commerce.” Olson said POKO hopes to start construction toward the end of the summer or early fall on the first phase of its mixed-use development in the adjacent neighborhood. In all, the project calls for 400 apartments, 70,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space and “a bizarre” amount of parking, Olson said. The first phase of the project will include 101 apartment units – 65 that will be market rate and 36 that will be designated as affordable housing, 16,000 square feet of retail space and a 220-space parking garage. “We’re going to complement and assist, if you will, the Wall Street neighborhood and that’ll drive business at the Globe Theatre as well as commerce in the entire area,” Olson said. Said Farricker, “We’re very confident that we’ll be part of a great change over there.”

PLEASE READ IT CAREFULLY. SUMMONS AND COMPLAINT YOU ARE IN DANGER OF LOSING YOUR HOME. IF YOU FAIL TO RESPOND TO THE SUMMONS AND COMPLAINT IN THIS FORECLOSURE ACTION, YOU MAY LOSE YOUR HOME. PLEASE READ THE SUMMONS AND COMPLAINT CAREFULLY. YOU SHOULD IMMEDIATELY CONTACT AN ATTORNEY OR YOUR LOCAL LEGAL AID OFFICE TO OBTAIN ADVICE ON HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF. SOURCES OF INFORMATION AND ASSISTANCE The State encourages you to become informed about your options in foreclosure. In addition to seeking assistance from an attorney or legal aid office, there are government agencies and non-profit organizations that you may contact for information about possible options, including trying to work with your lender during this process. To locate an entity near you, you may call the toll-free helpline maintained by the New York State Banking Department at 1-877-226-5697 or visit the Department's website at www.dfs.ny.gov. FORECLOSURE RESCUE SCAMS Be careful of people who approach you with offers to "save" your home. There are individuals who watch for notices of foreclosure actions in order to unfairly profit from a homeowner's distress. You should be extremely careful about any such promises and any suggestions that you pay them a fee or sign over your deed. State law requires anyone offering such services for profit to enter into a contract which fully describes the services they will perform and fees they will charge, and which prohibits them from taking any money from you until they have completed all such promised services.
