ommuting can be a chore for some, but Wade Eyerly wants to make it a little easier, and possibly cheaper, for New York-to-Boston commuters with a membership-driven airline service. Eyerly calls his new venture Beacon Inc. and, as co-founder and CEO, launched it earlier this month with a water-cannon salute — a tradition for new airlines or retiring pilots — at Westchester County Airport, where Beaconcontracted planes will make 18 daily trips to and from Boston’s Logan International Airport. The new service will also offer flights to Nantucket and the Hamptons during certain seasons.

Beacon members pay $2,000 a month — until October when the monthly rate goes up to $2,250 — to fly an unlimited number of times between the New York and Boston destinations. This subscription concept, Eyerly said, has only taken off with two other companies in the country, one on the West Coast also co-founded by Eyerly and another based in Dallas for which he was a member of the advisory board. Ryan Morley, Cory Cozzens and Reed Farnsworth are the other co-founders of Beacon, the latter two also co-founded Eyerly’s West Coast venture, which is called Surf Air. In July, Beacon announced it would receive $7.5 million in investment led by Romulus Capital with additional funds from MiVentures and Western » BEACON, page 6

Cuomo minimum wage proposal meets mixed reviews in Hudson Valley BY COLLEEN WILSON cwilson@westfairinc.com

efore a labor crowd of 1,200 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City earlier this month, Gov. Andrew Cuomo stood with Vice President Joseph Biden to support making New York’s minimum wage laws the highest in the country. “Today we’re putting our steps together to form a march toward economic justice,”

Cuomo said. “Raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour will bring fairness to 2.2 million working New Yorkers. Fifteen dollars an hour will be the highest statewide rate in the nation and will herald a new economic contract with America, and it’s about time.” Yet Westchester county, the business community remains hesitant to throw its support behind the $15-per-hour initiative, fearing a quick and significant wage hike

could hurt some businesses. The impact on employers’ payrolls was the main concern voiced by Marissa Brett, president of the Westchester County Association. “Imposing new mandates will increase the cost of operations and make the cost of doing business even higher in Westchester and the region,” she said. » CUOMO, page 6

New baseball and softball technology comes to Mahopac BY EVAN FALLOR Evan@Westfairinc.com

F

or decades, collegiate and professional baseball and softball recruiting has remained much the same: impress scouts with good play on the field, then wait for offers. Now, one company is trying to revolutionize that process. And one local sports training facility is among the first in the country to adopt its technology. SmartKage, a quantitative technology system, or simply a “smart” batting cage from Massachusetts-based sports tech company SmartSports, measures specific athlete performance for amateur baseball and softball players through the use of video cameras, radar and other invisible sensors. The cage also uses Sportvision’s PITCHf/x technology, which has been adopted by all Major League baseball teams. SmartKage measures pitching metrics such as miles per hour, pitch trajectory, spin rate and total movement. For hitters, it measures bat speed, swing strength and other metrics. It also measures fielding and physical fitness metrics such as jumping ability and 10-yard speed, similar to an NFL combine drill. Before stepping into the cage, players enter information, including height, weight, age and other characteristics into a computer that registers them in a database accessible by collegiate and professional programs and leagues across the country. Players are scored on a scale of 2 to 8 after completing SmartKage’s drills. Their score is automatically entered into a database available to schools and teams across the country as well as in a printable report from a computer beside the cage. 4D Sports Performance Center in Mahopac

is one of 40 indoor training facilities in the U.S. to implement the technology. Owner Anthony Yacco, who pitched five years in the San Francisco Giants organization, said he sees the technology as the first step in helping players at any age level determine where they stand in comparison to their competition. “I see this technology as a reality check,” Yacco, who played baseball for Mahopac High School, said. “You see where you actually are. If a guy comes in here and throws a 97-mile-per-hour fastball, that’s going to set off all sorts of red flags in the national database.” Recently, Matt Gelston, a conditioning coach and hitting coach at 4D who played outfield at Montclair State University five years ago, demonstrated the technology by doing a series of fitness and hitting drills. “It felt great,” Gelston said after he took swings at a series of 75 mile per hour fastballs. “I wish we had this when I was younger.” Greg Carroll, a Croton native who pitched for Hofstra University, said the SmartKage was effective after hurling a dozen or so pitches. The center held a demonstration event for the public Sept. 9, which saw coaches and players from various levels of play turn out. Yacco said the response was overwhelmingly positive, and already has a waiting list to try out the SmartKage when it launches later this month. Most of his clientele, ranging from roughly 10 years old to mid-20s, comes from Westchester County, but he also sees a decent crowd from Putnam and Fairfield counties as well as some players from New York City and New Jersey. 4D is currently separated into two areas: An 8,000-square-foot room designed for team training and a 12,000-square-foot room housing the SmartKage system. Yacco

acquired the space three years ago after a stint in Somers. The center, which has 12 full-time employees, offers pitching, hitting and field clinics as well as fitness training and birthday parties. Yacco works with high school and collegiate players as well as professional ballplayers during their winter off-seasons. 4D, housed in a former mixed-use warehouse on Bucks Hollow Road, charges $150 for a one-hour SmartKage session, and Yacco expects it will boost business because of the accessibility it will provide to budding collegiate players. He first heard about the technology from a mutual friend and hitting coach three years ago. He said he wanted to get on board as soon as the product became available. Rob Crews, a player development consultant who works with Yacco at 4D three times per week, said he does not believe the technology will replace scouts, adding it cannot measure intangibles like baseball IQ and decision-making. Rather, he believes it will get rid of human error — things like beginning a stopwatch too early or too late — and could be useful as a rehabilitation tool. “If a player who has a standing broad jump of 8 feet hurts their ankle then hops back in the SmartKage and jumps seven-anda-half feet, you know they’re not quite ready to return in full shape,” Crews said. At the time of the product announcement, SmartSports co-founder and CEO Corrine Vitolo said players will “obtain the most comprehensive evaluation of their performance capabilities,” adding the SmartKage technology is expected to be rolled out in 160 indoor facilities this year. Yacco said he is just happy to have the technology in his native Mahopac, where he hopes to continue expanding his business.

espite the obstacles standing between developers and their vision of turning the former Hudson River Psychiatric Center into a vibrant residential community, town of Poughkeepsie officials are cautiously optimistic the massive undertaking will reach fruition and revive the area with a residential and commercial hub. “I am hopeful,” Todd Tancredi, Poughkeepsie town supervisor, said. “We have tried to work well with the developer to keep them engaged. It is obviously a big commitment for somebody, and when the economy is not particularly strong, especially in New York state, it takes someone with a strong will and stomach.” The big commitment to which Tancredi referred is estimated to be about $200 million from developers Diversified Realty Advisors of Summit, N.J., and Coloradobased EnviroFinance Group LLC.

Poughkeepsie Psych center redevelopment pushing ahead to transform the 156-acre parcel and dilapidated psych center buildings — of which there are more than 50 — into Hudson Heritage. The collection of mixed-use buildings will include 750 residential units comprised of apartments, townhouses and detached single-family homes connected through walking trails, incorporated open spaces and recreation areas. The proposal also includes 350,000 square feet of commercial space including a 160,000-square-foot building and smaller retail spaces with the potential for an 80,000-square-foot hotel. The focus on a mix of residential and commercial development alongside a pedestrian friendly layout has been a selling point for the town, Tancredi said. “We are very happy about that because it is something we wanted to see there all along,” he said.

New Rochelle-based ambulance owner sentenced in Medicaid scheme

A

Yonkers man who ran an ambulance business has been sentenced to six months in jail and will pay $10,000 in fines after benefiting from fraudulent Medicaid claims. Kurien Palliankal owned and operated Carewell Ambulette Inc. in New Rochelle, in which capacity he transported Medicaid recipients to and from nearby counties,

according to the office of state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. Between July 2006 and March 2010, Schneiderman said Palliankal knowingly submitted exaggerated claims to Medicaid, profiting more than $200,000 than he should have. In addition to jail time and fines, Palliankal will serve five years of probation following his release from jail.

Michael Fosina named president of Bronxville hospital

M

ichael J. Fosina, a long time New Rochelle resident and senior executive at NewYork-Presbyterian hospital campuses in Manhattan, has been named president of NewYork-Presbyterian/ Lawrence Hospital in Bronxville. He succeeds Edward M. Dinan, who retired this month after 15 years as president and CEO of the 106-year-old, 291-bed community hospital in Bronxville. Fosina’s selection was announced by Dr. Steven J. Corwin, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital CEO, and Dr. Laura L. Forese, president of the NewYork-Presbyterian Healthcare System, which Lawrence Hospital joined last year. In his most recent post as senior vice president and chief operating officer of New York-Presbyterian/Lower Manhattan Hospital, Fosina helped establish NewYorkPresbyterian’s sixth medical campus. He previously served for many years as execu-

tive director of NewYork-Presbyterian’s Allen Pavilion in upper Manhattan. “As we welcome Michael Fosina,” Forese said, “we congratulate Ed Dinan on his more than 15 years of service and leadership at Lawrence Hospital, as well as his dedication and commitment to the institution and the Westchester communities it serves.” Forese called Dinan “a tireless partner and supporter during this evolutionary phase of building and branding NYP/ Lawrence” since the New York City hospital became the approximately 1,000-employee Bronxville hospital’s parent organization 14 months ago. Fosina said he is “delighted and enthused about the opportunity to help continue the positive impact that NewYork-Presbyterian/ Lawrence Hospital has made in Westchester County and the surrounding region.” “Together, we will work together to keep patients first” he said.

Cuomo — From page 1

Marsha Gordon, CEO and president of the Business Council of Westchester, and John Ravitz, the council’s executive vice president, said the state needs to consult with businesses and study how other cities have implemented similar minimum wage increases. Gordon said it would be premature and unfair to lean one way or the other on the issue because a wage hike could affect different regions in the state differently. “This should go through a process, and the Legislature should hold hearings of this,” said Ravitz, a Republican assemblyman in the state Legislature for 12 years. Doing a thorough review of the proposed increase, he said, would help determine “what makes the most sense for the state and what makes the most sense for small businesses.” John Santos, the Hudson Valley district director and vice president of 32BJ Service Employees International Union, said an increase like the one proposed by Cuomo could make a big difference for its members. “The bottom line is the more money

Technologies Investment. In starting its new service, Beacon will face some already-established competitors at the county-owned airport in Harrison. On Sept. 15, the same day as Beacon’s launch, Oxford, Conn.-based Tradewind Aviation LLC announced it will expand its charters to Boston and Stowe, Vermont. Tradewind is one of six commercial airlines flying from Westchester County Airport, which also houses a number of private charters. The membership model of his company is what Eyerly thinks will set Beacon apart. Because member subscriptions are funded on a month-to-month basis rather than typical membership contracts, such as those for a gym, that are year-long, the idea is to “build the relationships with our members over time,” he said. Eyerly said Beacon’s subscribers already numbered in the hundreds before the company’s official launch. “People are rabid about how much they like riding with us,” he said, adding it’s a personal and luxurious experience, but not the

Dutchess, Rockland, Orange, Sullivan and Westchester counties. The union’s commercial building cleaners are contracted to begin making $14.10 per hour next month. Santos said minimum wage discussions could influence upcoming contract negotiations. The Retail Council of New York State took a middle-of-the-road approach to the proposed increase. “Retailers are concerned about the effect of a $15-an-hour threshold on the

top tier of flying options. Eyerly used the analogy: “We really want to be the Westin [hotel], not the W.” In deciding to start the service in Westchester, Eyerly said the area had the right market of people who would find the value in a nearby, all-you-can-fly charter to Boston. He said traditionally, in order to get to Boston, county residents have to drive an hour in the wrong direction to one of the busiest airports in the country for a trip that can take more than two hours once security lines and air traffic delays are factored into the mix. “We’re a better valued proposition because of time savings,” he said. Beacon can get its passengers to Boston in 50 minutes and members sign up for flights using the company’s mobile app. To provide the aircraft by which its subscribers can take advantage of the county airport’s convenience, Beacon’s three eightseat Beechcraft Super King Air 200 planes are contracted through Dynamic Aviation Group Inc., a Virginia-based company, which owns and operates the planes. Over the next three years, Beacon anticipates it will add 27 more planes to the service and is looking to eventually add flights to other East Coast cities.

reflected his desire to see a minimum wage increase already in place for one sector of the state’s workforce writ large. In May, Cuomo instructed Mario J. Musolino, the acting commissioner of the state Department of Labor, to impanel a wage board to investigate and hold hearings about raising wages in the fast-food industry. Cuomo’s decision to bypass the state Legislature and take action through a wage board came months after Republican law-

Beacon co-founder and CEO Wade Eyerly with one of the company’s planes at Westchester County Airport in Harrison

makers rejected his budget proposal to increase minimum wage to $11.50 an hour. Less than three months later, Musolino’s board made recommendations to increase fast food workers’ wages to $15 an hour by 2019 in New York City and by July 2021 for the rest of the state. The Business Council of New York State president and CEO, Heather C. Briccetti, said Musolino’s wage board decision and Cuomo’s $15 proposal are disappointing. She said the group will work with the state legislators to reject Cuomo’s plan. The wage increases, Briccetti said, “would likely have a negative impact on job creation and individual businesses.” Musolino approved the board’s recommendation for fast-food workers on the same day Cuomo called for a statewide $15-per-hour wage. The current minimum wage debate comes only two years after the last one was decided. By the end of 2015, the latest statewide minimum wage law — signed by Cuomo in 2013 — will take full effect, increasing the statewide hourly minimum wage to $9. The 2013 law has increased the minimum wage in steps over the last two years beyond the federal rate of $7.25 an hour.

Family business: The right way to pass the torch

I

t would be hard to pass along a better legacy, or receive a better leg-up on life, than transitioning a thriving family business to the next generation. But so often we see problems due to insufficient preparation, sibling and intergenerational rivalries, incompatible ideas and visions, and personal emotions that exist more in family settings than in situations in which business colleagues are unrelated. The good news is it can be done correctly and smoothly if the planning starts early and the family stakeholders commit to making it work without letting their feelings get in the way. As the second-generation principal of a 46-year-old family business that is successfully making the transition, I’ve seen firsthand the issues that arise and the solutions that will work. First, understand that this is a multiyear process. Mom just can’t announce one day that she’s retiring and hand over the keys to junior. Uh-uh. You might as well launch the going-out-of-business sale. Years, perhaps decades, in advance the older generation must take stock of what is to come and start a checklist of decisions and actions that must be made. Among its items: • Are the kids interested in running the business? • Are they capable? • How do I give them the appropriate training and mentoring? • How do we structure the ownership transaction(s)? • What is the timeline? • What are the pitfalls? • How do I, as the founder, let go? The bulk of the work is in two broadly defined areas: succession planning and formalization, according to Family Business magazine. For the first, structure is important, as in an apprenticeship. The next generation must be exposed to all aspects of the business, learn the possibilities and problems, be let in on dad’s special way of tracking sales and expenses, and know mom’s special way of closing the deal. Maybe the starting line comes early in life with a child helping the staff stuff envelopes. Maybe it comes after getting the MBA, when the next generation shadows department heads and learns to think critically and make sound decisions for the business. The key is to get the process moving — plan the work and work the plan.

The thorniest problems often are closely tied to the relationships — a couple of your kids really don’t like each other, a younger daughter is more qualified to be CEO than your oldest son, old rivalries and disappointments are rekindled in the transition process. Solve these problems now. Don’t turn over your keys to the business or do things that can’t be undone while issues are boiling under the surface. Years of planning and work can be wasted when you head off to retirement and the office turns into a war zone. Your accountant and lawyer are vital partners in making sure the business entity transitions smoothly to next-generation ownership and with minimal negative consequences — such as an inheritance tax bill that would force a sale. Has the older generation gifted the business, or is the next generation buying the business from mom and dad? Again, you must start years in advance to do it right, without hidden financial surprises. Formalization is also where you will likely need some outside help to define roles and responsibilities, plan and structure the company for the future. Hire an organizational consultant to work with your company to help ensure success in growing and effectively transitioning the leadership among the generations of family owners. Family, page 15

DEC hearings address forced outages at Indian Point

he latest round of state hearings examining Indian Point Energy Center’s application for the necessary environmental documentation to continue operating started, Sept. 14. The hearings, overseen by the state Department of Environmental Conservation, focus on how to mitigate the impacts on the Hudson River from the use of its water to cool the Buchanan-based nuclear power plant’s two reactors, or whether to do anything at all. The plant takes in billions of gallons of Hudson River water a day and its opponents say millions of fish are killed each year during that process, especially during the summer spawning months. Alternatives to keep fish from being killed will be considered at the hearing including forcing the plant to close annually during a portion of the summer, installing wedgewire screens to keep fish out of the water intake pipes and installing two water cooling towers. Compared with wedgewire screens, the outages and the installation of cooling towers would be costly. The latter could take 15 years to build, according to Entergy Corp., the company that owns Indian Point. Jerry Nappi, an Entergy spokesman, said “the need for clean, reliable, lower-cost power is at a premium” during the summer months when the outages are proposed. “According to written testimony submitted by NYS DEC staff’s own expert witnesses, forced summertime outages will pass significant costs onto consumers, upwards of billions of dollars, for increased expenditures and replacement power costs,” Nappi said. The DEC and Riverkeeper, an environmental group, have proposed different outage spans that range from 42 days and 92 days for both reactors between May 10 and Aug. 10. Riverkeeper officials said outages are not a new concept for the plant and therefore are a viable option. Con Edison used to own the plant and implemented outages. Entergy bought Unit 3 and Unit 2 in 2000 and 2001, respectively. The hearings have been allotted three weeks, ending Oct. 2, at the DEC building in Albany. Indian Point must acquire a water quality certificate and an anti-pollution permit from the state in order to complete the license renewal process ongoing with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, a federal agency, since 2007. License renewals allow nuclear power plants to continue operating for 20 years at a time. Indian Point has two active reactors: Unit 2 went online in 1973 and its license expired in September 2013; Unit 3 was licensed in 1975 and is set to expire this December. — Colleen Wilson

CHALLENGING CAREERS

BY CATHERINE PORTMAN-LAUX

Colonel’s class is one part chemistry, one part philosophy

“N

ever leave a fallen soldier.” These words apply not only to the battlefield, Col. Leon L. Robert Jr. reminds cadets in his West Point classroom. “This ethos starts at West Point by taking care of your classmates.” The colonel is professor and head of the Department of Chemistry and Life Science at the U.S. Military Academy. Pointing to the academy’s diversity of students, he notes not all possess the ability of one former cadet who later entered Harvard Medical School, graduating first in his class. By contrast, the colonel gave special attention to a cadet struggling throughout his four years. “He was Hispanic, growing up along the Mexican border,” the professor recalls. “I saw him again after his military service. He had entered Harvard Business School and had blossomed.” The academy’s unique chemistry curriculum includes instruction in chemical warfare, explosives technology and alternative forms of energy. The colonel says West Point cadets are special; out of 16,000 applicants, only 1,270 were selected for this year’s freshman class.

Studies from the Army War College followed in 2006. One hair-raising assignment stands out in his mind. “While stationed in Germany in l999, I ran to reach my wife at church to inform her that at 4 a.m. next day I was shipping out to an undisclosed location. Our sons were two and four years old. The destination was Albania, threatened with invasion. I was there nearly six months before the invading Serbian army exited,” he said. The colonel has received nearly 20 military awards and decorations, many with special commendations. Cadets know their professor’s knowledge is not just from books. Before assuming his present post in 2011, he served in an impressive list of commands and staff assignments, most recently as vice dean of the National Military Academy of Afghanistan. The colonel met his wife, Amy, while attending graduate school at Texas A&M. An undergraduate and Texas native, she ultimately became a teacher. They expect to reside in their home overlooking the Hudson until the colonel’s mandatory retirement in four years. Involved in academy wives’ activi-

They will be submerged in academic, physical, military and character development. “The recently added fourth pillar addressing character development and honorable living is important in building leaders of character,” Robert said. “Anything is attainable if you want it enough,” he assures cadets. “If you really want it, you can have it.” He is a shining example of this philosophy. Raised in upstate Norfolk, New York, he was no stranger to uniforms. His father served during the Korea War and was later a New York state trooper. Young Leon aspired to travel; thus, his entry into the military, with seven overseas tours. He has earned five college degrees. His Bachelor of Arts degree in l977 from the State University of New York at Potsdam was followed by an Master’s of Science in Education with distinction from SUNY Potsdam in l981. Two years later, he received a master’s degree with distinction from Old Dominion University. He was commissioned a captain in the Medical Service Corps after receiving a Ph.D. in Medical Entomology from Texas A&M University in l987. A Master of Strategic

Unique chemistry curriculum is overseen by Col. Leon L. Robert Jr., professor and head of the chemistry department at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

ties, she is president of the Daughters of the U.S. Army and is a member of the West Point Women’s Club. The Robert sons are grown. The older, Marshall, a graduate of Texas A&M, is a mechanical engineer in Houston. His brother, John, is a junior at Texas Tech University in Lubbock. The family will be reunited when the Roberts retire to Texas. Challenging Careers focuses on the exciting and unusual business lives of Hudson Valley residents.

ASK ANDI

BY ANDI GRAY

The role of awards in marketing your business We just won an award! How do we use that to market ourselves? Wondering why we didn’t have fliers about our company to hand out at every table at the awards ceremony. At the very least, we can learn from this experience. We should work on this for the future — getting more awards and using them to promote the business. How would you go about doing this? THOUGHTS OF THE DAY: Winning awards is all about picking your shots versus hoping to get lucky. Find out what awards fall into your space now and which ones you’d have to work to get qualified for. Campaign to get the awards you want. Have a plan for how to pitch your company at the time of the award and post award. There are lots of awards out there, from local business organizations, to industry associations, networking groups, philanthropies and publications; the list of backers goes on and on. Rarely do candidates for awards end up on the radar of award organizations just by accident. They have already done something for which they deserve to be recognized or they have done something to make themselves more visible so that they do get recognized. When it comes to deciding what awards to pursue, think about who you ultimately want to notice you. In which industry segments do you want to make a splash? Which awards are likely to be meaningful to the business? Which are good for boosting PR? Which make you more attractive to potential suppliers and referral sources? Where do your potential customers turn for advice on go-to firms? That’s your target list for awards. Once you have a target list, do your homework to figure out how to win awards in each of those spaces. Build a multi year plan. You don’t want to, and probably can’t, go after every award all at once. Assign a point person to each desired award. Make a list of things that have to be done to qualify. Create a timeline to prepare for each competition, taking into account any filing deadlines. Always keep your eye on the cost-benefit ratio of filing for awards — some may be more work than they’re worth. It does take time and effort to win an award. You’ll need people advocating for your

company. Line up your influential sources now and start working them. Figure out how long it will take to get them to know enough about your company so that they’d be willing to recommend you. Not all awards have the same application cycle — some awards are one and done, some take repeat tries before your company rises to the top. Some are highly politicized. For each competition, think through what makes your company important enough to be recognized by the judges and sponsors. It’s ultimately about telling a story. Take a close look at the overall company — products, services, employees, customers, innovation, thought leadership, philanthropy. What makes your company stand out? If you’re not sure you can do a good job getting the message across, hire a PR firm. Let them craft and promote the messages you want out there — whether you win or not, promotion efforts will probably boost your market presence. Once you’ve been notified about winning, prepare for the announcement and post-announcement marketing campaign. Keep in mind that most awards organizers like the ripple effect that comes from your company’s self-promotion. Ask lots of questions about promoting the award. Can you take video of the awards ceremony? Post it online and on social media platforms. Create a handout for the awards ceremony; ask the promoter how to get that into everyone’s hands. Ask how people can attend and if you’re expected to pay anything. Find out if speeches will be necessary. If so, carefully select a speaker and rehearse. Ask about press releases and how can you tie in to the sponsors. Think about making a video telling how your company competed for the award or how your company delivers something exceptional. Make a plan to keep the award visible to customers and prospects, employees and candidates, long after the award ceremony is past. Looking for a good book?

DEALS &DEEDS HOSPICE & PALLIATIVE CARE MOVES WHITE PLAINS OFFICE Hospice & Palliative Care of Westchester this month will relocate its White Plains headquarters to 1025 Westchester Ave. in The Exchange, the Platinum Mile officeparks property of Normandy Real Estate Partners. The private nonprofit will move on Sept. 28 from its approximately 11,760-square-foot office at 311 North St. in the Westchester Medical Pavilion, according to a spokesperson for the organization. Hospice & Palliative Care of Westchester Executive Director Mary K. Spengler said the approximately 10,900-square-foot space at The Exchange “allows our entire staff to once again share the same floor, which is critical for our teams that work together in support of our patients” receiving end-of-life care. The lease runs through March 2026.

Family — From page 8

A few tips we learned from our organizational consultant along the way that I would like to share: • Clarify and harmonize management roles. • Ensure your company is a great place to work that attracts and retains talented employees. • Develop best practices for the company You might have to make some hard decisions; maybe a fallback is to split off segments of the business to various children, bring in unrelated executives for key positions or even fire one of your kids. Nobody wants to do that, but sometimes it must happen. In my business, the transition has been working well. My parents, the founders, remain active participants and decisionmakers, yet they get to enjoy the fruits of their labors on the golf course in Florida for much of the year. Early on, they took stock of us kids, saw our interests and made us a part

The 50-employee organization provides hospice care to more than 110 patients daily and in 2014 served 620 patients and families throughout Westchester County.

LARCHMONT MEDICAL OFFICE BUILDING SOLD An affiliate of Amber Property Management in Tuckahoe has purchased an approximately 18,000-square-foot medical office building at 2365 Boston Post Road in Larchmont for $5.65 million. The off-market sale of the 2-story medical building was brokered by Goldschmidt & Associates in Scarsdale. The seller was Triple AC Inc. in Eastchester. Eric S. Goldschmidt, senior partner at the real estate brokerage, in an announcement said the building’s quick sale this summer indicates the demand for quality real estate in Westchester and Fairfield counties. Goldschmidt this year has negotiated property sales totaling $60 million, with more properties in contract to be sold, according to his company.

of the plan. They became colleagues, mentors, business partners and problem solvers. They set the tone and the example, and both generations together made it happen. This year, the first of my children will go to college. I don’t know yet if he’s interested in the business; he probably doesn’t know yet. But as he and his brother get their education and formulate their futures, it’s a conversation we’ll have at the right time. We’ll see what works and what doesn’t, and if another generation will come on board. But this is a decision that is not up to us. And that’s another vitally important realization that family businesses must have: Those of the next generation may not love the work, and you have to respect that. But if they do, and they have that fire in their bellies that you feel upon unlocking the door every morning, go for it! Watching their success will be a success of your own.

INVESTIGATED NYC LANDLORD BUYS GREENBURGH SHOPPING CENTER Family partners in Marolda Properties in Manhattan recently paid $13.75 million to acquire the 34,000-square-foot Archway Shopping Center in Greenburgh in a taxdeferred like-kind exchange of properties.

WCA CHOSEN TO ADMINISTER $9.8 MILLION Federal Workforce Development Grant for the Hudson Valley The WCA is about to help employers fill some of the large number of key vacant positions in the healthcare sector in Westchester and the region. Selected by the Westchester-Putnam Workforce Development Board in partnership with the Employment Centers throughout the region, to serve as project manager of a $9.8 million Federal Ready to Work Partnership grant, known regionally as the “Jobs Waiting” program, the WCA will oversee intensive training of 425 long-term unemployed individuals competing for those jobs. Job seekers will receive training for healthcare jobs in high demand, such as: registered nurses, medical coders, radiologic and MRI technicians, physician’s assistants, and others. In the Hudson Valley, there are an estimated 13,000 long-term unemployed, defined as those who have been unemployed for more than six months and exhausted their unemployment benefits during the past two years. This regional training program is led by Westchester County and serves to connect workers with open positions in Westchester, Putnam, Rockland, Orange, Dutchess, Ulster and Sullivan counties. The WCA was awarded the role of Project Manager because of its extensive experience managing and executing multi-partner, multi-year projects simultaneously. WORKING TO DEVELOP THE BEST WORKPLACE TALENT Danielle DeMatteis (pictured below), a former Program Manager for the City of Yonkers, will spearhead the WCA’s project management of the “Jobs Waiting Program.” She said: “Retraining and support services are crucial in order to hone the skills needed to get people back into the workforce.” The Jobs Waiting Program is available to those who have been unemployed for more than six months, are interested in healthcare jobs, have completed high school, and are legal residents. The program’s components include a six-week Boot Camp, which involves financial planning, and social media training, among other things. Additionally, employers interested in hiring highly-motivated and skilled healthcare workers who are ready-towork will be able to market their job openings, have online access to candidates’ resumes, and receive up to 50% cash reimbursements for on-the-job and customized training costs. “Assuming the project management role of the Jobs Waiting grant is a key component of the WCA’s multi-faceted program to help develop the best possible workplace talent in our region,” says Amy Allen, Vice President and Executive Director, Hudson Valley Workforce Academy, Westchester County Association. “Part of that program is the WCA Hudson Valley Workforce Academy, launched in January, 2015, which addresses the critical need for skilled workers to help fill the 2,500+ jobs presently open in the healthcare, technology, and business sectors here.” She pointed out that the Academy, in cooperation with members of the WCA’s integrated healthcare consortium and Higher Education Committee, “helps our region attract and retain talent, upgrades the skills of the currently employed, and fosters job creation for the unemployed and underemployed.” For further information, please visit www.jobswaiting.com or contact Dani DeMatteis at 914.948.4144 or ddematteis@westchester.org.

WILMINGTON TRUST RENOWNED INSIGHT

“Shouldn’t you decide what will become of your business?”

Bruce F. Hoffmeister Senior Wealth Strategist Bruce has more than two decades of experience in estate and financial planning for closely held business owners and their families. He is part of a seasoned team of professionals who exemplify Wilmington Trust’s 112-year heritage of successfully advising business owners. Our goal is to help you create a plan for each stage of your business and your life, offering key insights at critical times of transition. For access to the expertise of professionals like Bruce and the rest of our team, contact Larry Gore at 212-415-0547.

Heads of successful family businesses are often reluctant to share control and involve other family members in the management process. But do you know what would happen to your business if you suddenly became incapacitated or worse, passed away? Who would step in to manage day-to-day operations? And even if you have a successor in mind, is that successor ready and capable of stepping up and running the business? Starting early. Ideally, succession planning should begin the day you take over a business. Of course, that isn’t always realistic given the amount of work running a business takes, but succession planning needs to be a top priority. Most importantly, you will need to decide if you want to keep the business in the family or eventually sell it. Looking down the road. To make the important decisions, you have to think about how you envision your retirement. You’ll need to determine if you want to be actively involved in the business in some capacity for the remainder of your life. You should ask yourself if you want to be chairman of the board and collect the net income. And

you should know whether the business will generate sufficient cash flow to support you and your family in retirement.

SPECIAL REPORT ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

New investors spark a revival in downtown redevelopment BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

I

n Yonkers and White Plains, two development companies that have worked with city officials for about two decades have taken on new financial partners to revive transit-oriented, high-rise apartment projects sidetracked for several years in the economic downturn. In Yonkers, the U.S. investment arm of a Chinese construction and real estate conglomerate has been welcomed by city officials as a major new player in downtown redevelopment. Strategic Capital LLC, a Jersey City-based subsidiary of China State Construction Engineering Corp., will invest about $200 million to acquire the Hudson Park properties on the downtown riverfront from Stamford-based Collins Enterprises LLC and build the third and final apartment tower on the 16-acre Hudson Park riverfront site beside City Pier. In White Plains, LCOR Inc., which pioneered mixed-use redevelopment near the city’s Metro-North Railroad station more than a decade ago with its 502-apartment Bank Street Commons, has returned to Bank Street this fall, propelled by an $80 million construction loan from Wells Fargo for the first phase of its approximately $250 million, twin-towered residential development on a former municipal parking lot in an urban renewal zone. The developer’s bankrupt former financial partner, Lehman Brothers, has been replaced by the California State Teachers’ Retirement System as LCOR begins construction this month after a fiveyear delay. In Yonkers, owners of Collins Enterprises and city officials were joined by their new Chinese business partners at a Sept. 15 groundbreaking ceremony for Hudson Park River Club, a 24-story, 230,000-square-foot building that will include 213 studio and oneand two-bedroom rental units. Ning Yuan, chairman and CEO of Strategic Capital and president of China Construction America, said he expects his company’s $85 million project, in which Collins Enterprises holds an equity stake, will be completed in late 2017. As head of China Construction America, Yuan in 2013 formed Strategic Capital as a platform for investment in public infrastruc-

ture and private real estate ventures across the Americas. The company, which has said it aims to build a $3 billion property portfolio within three years, last year acquired New York City-based Plaza Construction, the general contractor on Hudson Park River Club. (Plaza Construction CEO Richard Wood “married a girl from Yonkers,” said Yuan, pointing out his Chinese company’s links to the city. For Strategic Capital working with city and business leaders on its debut project in the city, “Yonkers has been like a family to us.”) Strategic Capital is wrapping up deals to acquire the entire mixed-use complex of Collins Enterprises in Yonkers, which includes Hudson Park South, a 266-unit residence with office and retail space that opened in 2003, and Hudson Park North, a 294-apartment building completed in 2008 as the credit market crisis brought largescale development projects to a halt throughout Westchester County. Brothers Arthur and Dwight Collins, co-principals of Collins Enterprises, in 2012 renewed plans to proceed with the third phase of their riverfront development after Berkshire Property Advisors acquired a majority stake in Hudson Park in a $147 million recapitalization. Berkshire, though, decided it did not want to invest in the final project phase, Arthur Collins said at the groundbreaking ceremony. “We had a lot of prospects” when seeking a financing partner, Collins said. “We were asking the city to be patient. We were a victim of the market.” “I think this is a great investment,” Yuan said of his company’s first venture in Yonkers and Westchester County. “We are seeing more potential U.S. opportunities,” including additional investments in Yonkers, he said. Collins said the Hudson Park complex “has rented up faster than any project” in his company’s development portfolio in its 30-year history. Hudson Park North was fully leased less than a year after its opening, he said. Hudson Park River Club will add studio apartments to the mix at the complex, where about 70 percent of tenants commute by train to work in midtown Manhattan. “We think that’s a great opportunity because I think there’s a great demand for that,” Collins said of the studio rentals. At 55 Bank St. in White Plains, LCOR ini-

55 Bank St. in White Plains

tially will build a 16-story tower with 288 rental units, 3,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space and a 381-space underground parking garage. The development is expected to open in spring or summer of 2017. The second phase of the 55 Bank St. development will include a second 16-story tower with 273 rental units, 3,350 square feet of ground-floor retail space and underground and above-grade parking for 570 vehicles. “Our intention is to build out both towers and our timing for the second phase will be based on the market,” said James M. Driscoll, senior vice president at LCOR’s Manhattan office. “Obviously White Plains is a great market and we’re very excited about it.” Driscoll said the market for transit-oriented development has grown since White Plains officials first approved the $15.5-million sale of city property to LCOR for its 55 Bank St. project in 2007. “There continues to be an increasing preference with the millennial-generation renters and the move-down baby boomers to

live in urban locations that are convenient to public transportation,” he said. “That trend continues to mature. We think there’s a long runway ahead of us” for the transit-oriented redevelopment projects that LCOR has done for 30 years. Driscoll noted that retail development has lagged in the city’s downtown Bank Street area. With the completion of LCOR’s construction project, “There’s going to be a greater critical mass in place to support retailers in that corridor,” he said. “The more residential development that is added to Bank Street will only help.” Like the new Chinese investor in Yonkers, LCOR expects to pursue more development projects at the southern end of the county. “Yes, we will be looking for more opportunities to add to our portfolio,” Driscoll said. “We think Westchester is still an underserved market” both for apartment rentals and office space in urban locations more accessible to mass transit than are the county’s office parks.

North Shore-LIJ rebrands as Northwell Health BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

T

he North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System, which acquired two community hospitals in Westchester County last year, is being renamed Northwell Health as the 21-hospital network prepares to launch a rebranding and marketing campaign in 2016 to distinguish it in a crowded metropolitan market. The state’s largest private employer, it has been known as North Shore-LIJ Health System since the 1997 merger of the North Shore Health System and Long Island Jewish Medical Center. But officials at North ShoreLIJ headquarters in Great Neck said the name has confused consumers, the news media, medical professionals and even the health system’s own employees and is not well recognized among consumers beyond Long Island. A spokesperson said the health system began working earlier this year with branding consultants Monigle and Interbrand to develop a new company name and brand platform. The marketing communications firm J. Walter Thompson was also brought in to develop a broad communications program. The resulting name change was unanimously approved by the North Shore-LIJ board of trustees. Board Chairman Mark L. Claster said trustees “recognized the need for a more consumer-friendly name that did not confine us geographically and reflects our emergence as a regional health care provider with a coverage area that extends beyond Long Island.” “Being highly visible and clearly understood within and beyond the New York metropolitan area requires strong brand recognition,” Michael J. Dowling, North Shore-LIJ president and CEO, said. “The Northwell Health name is a reflection of our past and a beacon of our future. It’s unique, simple and approachable, and better defines who we are and where we are going.” As a first step, the health system will begin introducing the new brand to its more than 61,000 employees, 10,000 affiliated physicians and other internal audiences, including more than 13,000 nurses, according to a North Shore-LIJ spokesperson. The health system’s community hospitals will retain their existing names. They include Phelps Memorial Hospital in Sleepy Hollow and Northern Westchester Hospital in Mount Kisco.

supervisor said. “Sometimes these projects drift along without a direction,” he said. “Time is money for anybody in business, so we try to make sure time is spent wisely and continue to try to move the process forward.” A firm timeline has not been set by the developers as the project could be years in the making, but they said ground could be broken on the project in as soon as two years. The initial commercial phase could be built in three years and the entire project completed possibly in a decade. The project is still in preliminary phases. At the end of August, the town closed a public comment period seeking feedback on scoping documents, which will be used as an outline for environmental impact studies by the developers to identify issues. The public comment period produced a number of concerns regarding the proposal’s impact on traffic, tax revenue and the preservation of the psychiatric center’s many historic buildings. “The Town of Poughkeepsie has had a long and influential history in the Hudson Valley. The preservation of the town’s history is what gives our community an identity and uniqueness, which allows us to stand out from our neighbors,” Town Historian John R. Pinna said in written comments submitted to the board. “The [Town of Poughkeepsie Preservation Commission] recognizes and supports the need for development and the need to maintain a balance between progress and preservation. It also recognizes that once historic landmarks disappear, they are gone forever and future town generations never get the opportunity to learn or experience their town history.” Built in the late 1860s, the Hudson

Psychiatric center was added to the National Historic Landmark registry in 1989 and had the capacity to serve 6,000 patients. A major hurdle for developers will be the demolition of a majority of the site’s buildings, many of which have fallen into dangerous condition or contain asbestos and lead contamination. Tancredi estimates the demolition alone will cost developers at least $14 million. While the town has offered no incentives to the developers other than being actively engaged in moving the proposal along with its developer funded consultants, the cost of the remediation may be offset by brownfield tax credits, which are provided by the state to developers who remediate polluted properties, Tancredi said. “It is a large enough project that there

currently burdened by tax-exempt properties such as hospitals, state facilities and colleges, would be a major benefit, Tancredi said. Representatives for the developers said the $144,000 the site currently generates in taxes could swell to more than $2 million in sales tax revenue after the project is completed. But with a long road ahead for the project and the heavy lifting of cleaning up contamination from the site still remaining, Tancredi is cautiously optimistic about the project. “You always see projects of various sizes come and go,” he said. “It takes a special developer to take on a project of this magnitude. If it doesn’t come about, we don’t want it to be because the town was dragging its feet.”

is room to work out most of the issues through the review process,” Eric Hollman, planner for the Town of Poughkeepsie, said. “That is part of the purpose of the public comment.” Tancredi said he is also confident the issues raised by the public will be properly addressed by the developers and sees the proposal as possibly having a significant positive financial impact on the area. According to representatives for the developers, the commercial component of the project would create approximately 350 jobs and the residential and hotel components would create approximately 67. There will also be more than 400 jobs created temporarily during the construction process. The bolstering of the tax base, which is

Mount Sinai opens occupational health clinic in Monroe

WE REACH HIGHER

WHEN WE WORK TOGETHER

BY EVAN FALLOR evan@westfairinc.com

O

fficials with Mount Sinai Health System’s Selikoff Centers for Occupational Health announced Sept. 8 the health system has opened a clinical center at 745 Route 17M in Monroe. The Selikoff Centers, members of the state Department of Health’s Occupational Health Clinic Network, provide prevention and treatment for work-related injuries and illnesses. Its physicians and health specialists also evaluate the physical, chemical, biological and social environments of workplaces and their effects on workers’ health. The Selikoff Centers also has a location on Warburton Avenue in Yonkers. “We welcome the opportunity to care for workers in Monroe, Orange County and other communities throughout the lower Hudson Valley,” Madelynn AzarCavanagh, director for the Selikoff Centers for Occupational Health, said. “While our focus is on prevention, we are here to provide excellent, patient-centered care when a work-related injury or illness does happen.” In addition to Yonkers, the Selikoff Centers also have offices in Manhattan and Staten Island and have more than 15,000 clinical visits annually. The Selikoff Centers for Occupational Health Lower Hudson Valley is guided by a regional advisory board of community, labor and business leaders and occupational safety and health experts. Winston Kwa, medical director for the Lower Hudson Valley region of the Selikoff Centers for Occupational Health, said the center regularly treats conditions caused by exposure in the workplace, including occupational lung cancers and other diseases. “Without proper diagnosis and management of work-related conditions, individuals lose access to many benefits and resources to which they would otherwise receive,” said Kwa, who also serves as the treating physician at the Monroe and Yonkers facilities. Mount Sinai Health System includes seven hospital campuses and more than 140 ambulatory practices throughout Westchester County, New York City, Long Island and Florida.

WCA steers $10M regional health care job training project BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

T

he Westchester County Association has been named project manager for a nearly $10 million, federally funded Jobs Waiting program that will provide 425 long-term unemployed residents of the Hudson Valley with intensive training for jobs in the health care sector. The $9.8 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Ready to Work Partnership fund was awarded to the Westchester-Putnam Workforce Investment Board, which selected the WCA as project manager because of its extensive experience in managing and

executing simultaneous multi-partner, multi-year projects, according to a WCA spokesperson. The WCA, in announcing its selection, said grant funds will be used for outreach and recruitment to better connect workers with the kinds of organizations looking to hire; to provide training and support services to people who are unemployed but require re-training for health care jobs in high demand; and to further develop strategies to increase the number of middleskilled and high-skilled job placements. Those high-demand occupations include registered nurses, medical coders, radiologic and magnetic resonance imaging technicians, and physician’s assistants, among oth-

ers required by business and health care organizations in the seven-county Hudson Valley region. An estimated 13,000 residents in the region qualify as long-term unemployed, having been out of work for more than six months and having drained their unemployment benefits during the past two years, according to the WCA. Led by Westchester County, the training program will connect workers with open positions in Westchester, Putnam, Rockland, Orange, Dutchess, Ulster and Sullivan counties. WCA Vice President Amy Allen said the new project management role “is a key component of the WCA’s multifaceted

program to help develop the best possible workplace talent in our region.” Allen also serves as executive director of the Hudson Valley Workforce Academy, launched in January by the WCA to address what she described as “the critical need for skilled workers to help fill the 2,500-plus jobs now open in the health care, technology and business sectors here.” Danielle DeMatteis, who will spearhead the WCA’s management of the Jobs Waiting project, said the program will teach soft skills, such as the interpersonal skills needed in the workplace, as well as hard skills in technology and service delivery. “Our main goal is to determine the needs of the end user — the employer — to identify hard-to-fill positions, the training that is needed and the skills gaps that exist,” she said. Unemployed workers accepted into the program will participate in a six-week training boot camp run by The WorkPlace, a Bridgeport-based corporation and one of five workforce development boards in Connecticut. Employers can use the Jobs Waiting program to market their job openings, access online the resumes of job candidates and receive up to 50 percent cash reimbursements for their on-the-job and customized training costs. Joseph DiCarlo, senior vice president and director of human resources at Westmed Practice Partners in Purchase, said the health care management services company will participate in the Jobs Waiting Program with the WCA and the two-county workforce investment board. “This initiative will provide a robust pipeline of pre-qualified candidates who are ready and willing to fill the most critical positions, especially the most hard-tofill jobs,” he said. “Furthermore, this partnership will demonstrate how the business community, government and academia can work collaboratively as an example of how to help close the skills gap in the United States.” Regional one-stop career centers joining in the program include Westchester One-Stop Career Center in White Plains, Mount Vernon Career Center, Peekskill Career Center, Yonkers Career Center, Putnam One-Stop Career Center in Carmel, Rockland County Career Center in Spring Valley and other centers in Newburgh, Middletown, Poughkeepsie, Kingston and Monticello.

Rosehill condo project ‘alive and well’ BY REECE ALVAREZ ralvarez@westfairinc.com

A

n attorney for the real estate company behind a changing proposal to redevelop the former estate of Broadway producer Billy Rose in New Castle said a plan to transform the mansion into 60 condominiums is “alive and well.” However, at the same time, the mansion and property at 773 Armonk Road are listed for sale by Ginnel Real Estate in Bedford Hills for $35 million. In a separate listing, the 98-acre parcel is being marketed at an asking price of $18.8 million. David Steinmetz, the White Plains attorney representing the developer, Soder Real Estate Equities LLC of Montclair, N.J., said his client “has been actively engaged over the last several months retaining an engineering firm to solve the sewage effluent issues and has now hired a new architect. With our development team now firmly in place we expect to return to the town and pursue the SEQRA (State Environmental Quality Review Act) process vigorously.” Stephen Oder, principal of Soder Real Estate Equities in Yonkers, acquired the property from the Legionaries of Christ in 2012 for an undisclosed amount. The Legionaries, a Roman Catholic order of priests, bought the property in 1994 for $3.13 million from the Unification Church

of the late Sun Myung Moon when it was known as The Cenacle, a former retreat house for a Catholic order of nuns. The 1920s-era red brick mansion was originally built for famed Broadway producer Billy Rose. The 22,000-square-foot home features eight bedrooms and 12 bathrooms. Oder in 2012 first proposed a 66-unit residential development and 30-room hotel on the site. He later returned to town officials with a proposal to build 80 villas and townhouse condos on the site without a hotel. Two years ago, Oder proposed to redevelop the estate as The Spa at New Castle, a 66-unit residential development with a 30-room hotel, 20,000-square-foot public spa and a 4,470-square-foot restaurant. The spa and hotel portions were eliminated from the proposal in 2014 due to concerns from neighbors, Steinmetz said. The most recent version of the proposal, called Rosehill, includes 60 condominium units with amenities that include indoor and outdoor pools, a 75-seat screening room, fitness center, three tennis courts and walking trails. Regarding the luxury property’s sale listing with the Ginnel brokerage, Steinmetz explained that the listing of the mansion as a single-family offering falls under requirements of the SEQRA process and the developer still intends to proceed with the Rosehill condominium project.

oodbury Common Premium Outlets has opened a 51,000-square-foot food court called Market Hall, mall officials said this week. The food court of the Central Valley shopping center now includes Chipotle Mexican Grill, Kung Pao Wok, Pret A Manger, Umi Teryaki, Cinnabon, South Philly Steaks & Fries, Tony + Benny’s and McDonald’s. Pinkberry, Melt Shop and Just Salad are expected to open later this year. Shake Shack, Le Pain Quotidien and Yo! Sushi are also expected to begin operating in the outlets before the winter holiday season. Stephen Yalof, CEO of Premium Outlets, Woodbury Common’s owner, and senior executive vice president of Simon Property Group, hoped the new food options would create a better overall experience for customers. “We responded to our shoppers’ demands for a more diverse and higher quality dining experience with healthier options,” Yalof said. “The new Market Hall was constructed to provide the 13 mil-

lion people who visit Woodbury Common Premium Outlets each year with more food choices and other modern amenities.” The new Market Hall is part of a multimillion-dollar, three-phase property renovation that will increase capacity in the food court by more than 60 percent to 900 patrons. The renovations will include complimentary Wi-Fi for visitors, cell phone charging stations, an expanded nursing area and improved family restrooms. Chief operating officer of Simon Premium Outlets Mark Silvestri said the new dining options compliment a renovated welcome center and a new, three-level parking garage. “The new modern dining destination will offer shoppers a comfortable place to escape the heat in the summer and cold in the winter, while they get a bite to eat and recharge themselves,” Silvestri said. Woodbury Common Premium Outlets features 220 retailers.

“The company was required to study and examine not only the environmental impacts of the single estate, but the economic viability of such a project, that is why he tested the water with the listing of the property as a single estate,” Steinmetz said. “Soder remains very excited about the successful redevelopment of this property.” Asked about the property’s listing with the realtor, Sabrina Charney Hull, New Castle planning director, said, “The town has no indication that the project for the 60 townhouse

units has been terminated.” Soder Real Estate next will submit a draft environmental impact statement for review by New Castle officials. Steinmetz said he hoped the environmental impact report “would be submitted for review for the town in the fall and ready for town board and a public hearing as soon as consultants deem it complete. We would hope the project would receive its approvals in 2016 and would be ready to begin coming to market sometime in 2017.”
