At last Tuesday’s town board meeting Councilman Robin Stout announced that one of the responsibilities of his “day job”—for the Empire State Development Corporation—is to supervise Columbia University’s planned expansion into West Harlem. Empire State Development Corporation’s real estate and condemnation counsel, Stout stated, is the law firm of Carter, Ledyard & Milburn LLP, which also represents Summit Greenfield in the Chappaqua Crossing project.
Stout explained that although none of the Carter Ledyard & Milburn attorneys working on the Columbia expansion project was working on the Summit Greenfield project, he wished to make full public disclosure of the connection. Stephen Kass of Carter Ledyard & Milburn LLC is Summit Greenfield’s legal counsel on Chappaqua Crossing. John Marwell of Mt. Kisco’s Shamberg Marwell Davis & Hollis, P.C. is also legal counsel to Summit Greenfield.
