The New York Observer has released its list of the 100 most powerful people in New York City real estate, with Stephen Ross, chairman of Related Companies, ousting last year’s number one ranked player, President Barack Obama from the top spot. The list is populated with many long-time real estate bigwigs. SL Green honchos Marc Holliday and Andrew Mathias jointly took the second place title, up from last year’s showing at number seven, while Boston Properties CEO Mort Zuckerman stayed in the third place position. Vornado Realty Trust’s Steven Roth and Michael Fascitelli climbed from number 11 to fourth place and Jonathan Gray, Blackstone’s senior managing director, took a huge leap from 14th place to fifth. Other notable names include Dolly Lenz, the Apthorp superbroker, who clocked in at the 89th spot, Mary Ann Tighe, the Real Estate Board of New York’s chairperson, who came in at seventh on the list, and Jerry and Rob Speyer, who ranked at number 11, despite the Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper ViIllage debacle.
