    The premise of “The Closing” interview is simple: each month, sit down with an individual who not only made it to the summit of the New York real estate industry, but through a combination of skill, grit, and chutzpah, shaped it. The interviews have endured because they are so personal: they go beyond the deals and reveal what makes the dealmaker tick.

    Now, nearly a decade after The Real Deal published its first Closing, we have compiled 100 of these interviews in our first book. And to celebrate the book launch, many of the names featured in its pages joined us at the Four Seasons Restaurant Tuesday.

    From the February issue: Ofer Yardeni is the cochairman and CEO of Stonehenge Partners, a Manhattan-based real estate company that owns and manages 27 residential buildings and commercial properties in New York valued at roughly $2.2 billion. Yardeni formed the company 18 years ago with his business partner, Joel Seiden. But the company has been especially active lately. Last spring, Stonehenge partnered with SL Green Realty and retail mogul Jeff Sutton to buy a $416 million retail and residential property portfolio that includes eight prime Upper East Side properties. More recently, Stonehenge bought a residential building at 103 East 86th Street for $76 million in November. The company is also converting a former staff-housing site at St. Vincent’s Hospital into a 180-unit luxury residential building at 555 Sixth Avenue. [more]

The firm will reorganize its senior management team, moving its former managing partner Ofer Yardeni to co-chairman and CEO. Stonehenge will also piece together a Strategic Advisory Board — also to be created and co-chaired by Yardeni along with Joel Seiden, both founders of Stonehenge. The board’s purpose will be to assist Stonehenge, with an eye on efficiency, as it anticipates growth. [more]
