Jim Coyne the former Albany County Executive has taken up the role of manager of the properties of property developer Sandy Horowitz who was also a former Hollywood film producer. Horowitz is in trouble because of which Jim has been brought on board to get a handle on the problem and manage the property suitably. There might have been some code violations as well as try and get tenants to start staying in the properties. Jim Coyne agrees that Sandy has good vision for the properties and the properties are also quite good which is why they should be able to garner attention from prospective owners and tenants too. Sandy has, in any case, invested a great deal of money and it would be great if his project could come to some right standing instead of being pushed around endlessly.
Horowitz is known as a B-movie producer and he lives in California. He had really big plans for property in the Hudson River bank area and had also bought a number of signature properties there. On the other hand, Jim Coyne was the general manager of Washington Avenue Armory in Albany till last August, when he lost that job all of a sudden.
