The 100 Most Powerful People in New York Real Estate

Source:http://www.theurbandeveloper.com/201...k-real-estate/

The New York Observer has released their annual publication of the 100 Most Powerful People in New York Real Estate amidst a more optimistic outlook for the Big Apple compared to previous years.

In fact, the President was No. 1 in 2009 – a sign that the government was the only savior during the doldrums of the GFC.

Since mid-2010, New York’s real estate market has been buoyed by a number of major leases and transactions, including Conde Nast’s decision to commit to 1 World Trade Center which continues its climb to 1,776 feet.

According to The Observer, the list was chosen internally using subjective criteria; is overwhelmingly male and white; and predominantly occupied by developers/investors and public policy makers.

Here’s the top 10:

1. Douglas and Jody Durst - Chairman and President of the Durst Organization
2. Andrew Cuomo - Governor of New York
3. Marc Holliday and Andrew Mathias - CEO and President of SL Green
4. Steve Roth and Michael Fascitelli – Chairman and President/CEO of Vornado Realty Trust
5. Mort Zuckerman – Chairman of Boston Properties
6. Gary Barnett - President of Extell Development
7. Michael Bloomberg – Mayor of New York
8. Jonathan Gray – Senior Managing Director of Blackstone
9. Hu Jintao – President of China
10. Stephen Ross, Jeff Blau and Bruce Beal – Chairman/CEO, President and Executive Vice President of the Related Companies

And some notable mentions:

* Donald Trump (14) – Chairman of Trump Corporation
* Mary Ann Tighe (18) – Regional CEO of CB Richard Ellis
* Mikhail Prokhorov (24) – Controlling owner of the New York Nets
* Ric Clark (37) – CEO of Brookfield Properties
* Peter Riguardi (60) – President of Jones Lang LaSalle

Pablo, I'm a war veteran for the US Air Force. Allow people a chance to celebrate. An awful man has been killed.

BTW, don't forget the Falklands... if anyone attacks Argentina they're sure to beg for international military assistance as bad as Argentinian 'futbol' player beg for foul calls in soccer games.

Yeah, people are all celebrating. He ruined our future, our freedom and even damaging and tarnishing the august establishment of the world economy. It's sad because last time, you can take pictures in a mall or even visit some places i.e. NYSE. Now, no more visit to NYSE, photo enforcement ban is in effect. It totally ruin us and you just call us that. Are you his supporter?

Oh no, I just found out about the tragic loss of Zensteeldude. Had a bad feeling that something had happened since he hadn't posted here in quite a while. It's a shame that he will never get to see the supercolumns go into place or the completion of the hub, 1WTC, and the rest of the WTC. R.I.P.

Zensteeldude Memorial Thread

On a lighter note, it appears that part of the truss is on site:

Nice shot! It took a long enough time for these to finally get installed. I can't wait to see the others. Finally they can get the rest of the memorial plaza finished.

Did anyone save a copy of the diagram Zen made of the supercolumns? I want to compare it to the actual column that has been placed, but it appears most of his flickr images are unavailable now. He mentioned that the supercolumns may have been redesigned from what his plans showed.

Is there a diagram or 3d render that I can view to see how the box girders and super columns all fit together when completed? To be quite honest, I don't really understand what they are all for and how they all work together. Something to do with supporting the roof...or something...
