As a new decade arrives, so does the latest crop of boat-rockers, according to the Observer, which released its list of “insurgents” yesterday. The list contains the 50-plus “punks who will make this city hum again,” the Observer said, including several real estate bigwigs. Helena Durst, assistant vice president for the Durst Organization, Prudential Douglas Elliman’s 23-year-old whiz kid Jared Seligman, Veronica Mainetti, head of investment management firm Sorgente Group’s U.S. activities; Vishaan Chakrabarti, director of the real estate development program at Columbia University as well as president of the Moynihan Station venture; and Jonathan Butler, the Brooklyn real estate blogger who founded Brownstoner, were among the real estate players named on the list. “The ‘insurgents’ may not know it yet, but they’re about to remake this town in ways many of us can’t even fathom,” the Observer editors wrote. “Meet the people who are going to make the [next decade] worth watching.” Other listees include Jonathan Gray, senior managing director of the Blackstone Group, and Andrew Ross Sorkin, reporter and author of “Too Big to Fail.” [NYO]
