From the October issue: David Kramer, 50, runs the 35-person development firm known as the Hudson Companies. The organization is the most prolific developer in Brooklyn with over 2.7 million square feet in the works, according to a recent analysis by The Real Deal of city building permits filed since 2011.

But the firm also has its development tentacles spread throughout the city with 21 active projects. Its roster includes the 36-story condo with a new public library at Brooklyn’s Cadman Plaza West; the Bronx’s 825-unit Bronxchester complex; and Roosevelt Island’s Cornell Tech campus, where it won a competitive bidding process with partner the Related Companies.
