    TRD Friday Feature:When Gary Barnett finally won a 14-building portfolio of properties owned by brothers Frank and Michael Ring in late 2013 – after much maneuvering and legal wrangling – it was viewed as a coup for one of New York’s savviest dealmakers. [more]

    In the 1990s, Gary Barnett, Ziel Feldman and Kevin Maloney were principals at Property Markets Group as the firm became a major player on the New York real estate scene.

    Barnett struck out on his own in 1995, while Feldman followed suit a decade later. And the companies they started, Extell Development and HFZ Capital Group, are now Manhattan’s two most active condominium developers, according to a new analysis by The Real Deal.

    Some developers faced with public outrage over creating a so-called “poor door” would, well, duck out the back door. Not Gary Barnett.

    As controversy over the poor door — a separate entrance for lower-income tenants in luxury buildings — at his planned 33-story building at 40 Riverside Boulevard erupted over the summer, the founder and CEO of Extell Development dug in, defending the practice and arguing that without it, developers would opt out of incorporating affordable housing into their projects.

    “I don’t think it’s worth making such a big issue over,” Barnett told The Real Deal during an interview in his Midtown East office last month. “Let’s get the affordable housing and let’s not worry about these optics.” Read the full story from the October 2014 issue after the jump.

    Don’t expect the rumors that Gary Barnett’s Extell Development is planning a Midtown hotel to die down anytime soon. The firm just acquired a 14-story Diamond District office building at 10 West 47th Street for $74.4 million, located next to a building Extell picked up for $56 million last year.

    Extell closed on 10 West 47th Street, a 72,000-square-foot building between Fifth and Sixth avenues, on August 4, according to property records filed with the city Wednesday. The seller is Arthur Margolin’s Kenart Realties, which owned the property since 1980. [more]

    Gary Barnett’s Extell Development is coming in as a partner on C&K Properties’ Midtown development site at 1710 Broadway, The Real Deal has learned.

    Rising high above Central Park, Extell Development’s One57 is Exhibit A for New York City’s emergence as a playground for the super-rich. It boasts a $100.5 million penthouse that’s currently the priciest apartment ever sold in the city.

    But tax breaks at One57 cost the city $65.6 million in property tax revenue, according to a damning new report from the city’s Independent Budget Office. And those subsidies, which underwrote 66 affordable units in the Bronx, could have produced nearly 370 affordable units instead. [more]

    On Wednesday, Extell Development received a stop-work order on its 700-foot-tall tower at 250 South Street over concerns that construction was causing Cherry Street to collapse. That order has now been rescinded. But Extell still may have to rip up and repave the entire street. [more]

    Developer Gary Barnett has sky-high ambitions for the Nordstrom Tower: Whether or not his condo tower at 217 West 57th Street becomes the tallest building in New York City, Barnett could break records if he comes close to his projected $4.4 billion sellout. [more]
