Crain’s has released its latest list of New York City power players, the top “40 Under 40,” and it comes as no surprise that real estate moguls are sprinkled throughout. Among those of note are Seth Pinsky, president of the city’s Economic Development Corp., who barely made the list at 39 years old, and Alexandra Prosser, 29, a managing director at eEmerge, an office leasing division of commercial real estate giant SL Green Realty. Pinsky, of the EDC, had a hand in some of the city’s most talked about projects of the decade, including the World Trade Center, Atlantic Yards and the new Yankees and Mets stadiums. Also included was Scott Weiner, Apollo Global Real Estate’s 36-year-old principal. After joining the asset manager last year, he started Apollo Commercial Real Estate and recently took the company public. Eugene Schneur, 37, the Omni New York co-founder and managing director, made the list as well. Schneur and his company buy and rehabilitate affordable housing units across New York, New Jersey and Connecticut using low-income tax credits and tax-exempt bond financing. Omni recently made headlines when it bought the mortgage on a distressed 14-building complex in the South Bronx. [Crain’s]
