The Real Deal’s December issue is now live! This month we look at the finances of the industry’s most powerful trade group, the Real Estate Board of New York and, as the city’s comprehensive Zoning Resolution passes the half-century mark, we explore how city planners, academics and real estate professionals are crafting proposals that will shape the way developers build in the coming years. We also profile CIM Group, the Los Angeles developer that’s been taking on Manhattan, and hash out some of New York’s most high-profile real estate courtroom clashes. On the residential end, some brokers are predicting that pent-up demand in the market could foster a busy 2012 though others remain skeptical, while, on the commercial side, we take a peek behind-the-scenes of jockeying between brokers and owners on Fifth Avenue‘s priciest strip. We also sat down with Hal Fetner, CEO of Durst Fetner Residential, to talk about the family business, his political aspirations and getting into trouble with the cops. TRD
