From the April issue: Jerry Larkin oversees all leasing in New York and Boston for the mega-commercial landlord Brookfield Property Partners. The Toronto-based firm owns nearly 20 million square feet of office space in New York, including the four-building, 8.5 million-square-foot Brookfield Placeoffice complex, where it has been on a leasing tear in the last 18 months.
