BISNOW PRESENTS THE 2017

RICHEST IN REAL ESTATE

No other industry carries as much influence on our lives: where we work, how we eat and shop, the way we experience sports and entertainment — and how that all relates to wherever we call home. Commercial real estate is at the core of our daily lives. That’s why it would be an injustice to only gauge this industry in concrete, steel, dollars and square feet. This is an industry full of innovators solving complex problems for the masses — a collective that goes far beyond the honorees below. Lists are inherently imperfect, which is why I am billing ours as the (almost) definitive list of power, money and innovation in the industry. But it is categorical in one respect: these men and women have profoundly transformed our neighborhoods and reshaped our cities, businesses and lifestyles. We live in their world.
