What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? Since the Roseland sale we are still building multifamily housing in the northeast. I also serve as executive chair of Logical Buildings, a smart building and sustainability software solutions company. After building a large clientele in commercial buildings (multifamily, office, etc.) who reduce their energy expenses by 15%, our most significant endeavor is the introduction of our consumer platform, GridRewards, to Con Edison users throughout the greater New York metro area. This fall, we launched the app in partnership with Sustainable Westchester and are continuing to roll it out to smart meter users on the ConEd AMI platform in the New York tri-state region.
