TRD’s April issue is now live

April 03, 2012 02:30PM

The April issue of The Real Deal is here! In this month’s edition, we take a look at which developers are in good graces with City Hall, and how they reached that point. We’ve profiled Brown Harris Stevens broker Kyle Blackmon, the 34-year-old broker who is referred to as the Southern gentleman behind Manhattan’s priciest ever apartment sale that closed earlier this year. He now has a $77 million listing. We also have a story on the three co-founders of the Carlyle Group, who received $413 million in compensation last year as their company profits rose. They have $2.3 billion in their sixth real estate fund, a planned IPO in the works and a large New York City presence. In “Sue thy neighbor,” we report the increase in number of disputes between neighbors in New York City buildings. Both co-op and condominium boards are turning to attorneys with greater frequency. In this month’s Closing feature, we talk to Stuart Saft, a partner at law firm Dewey & LeBoeuf and chair of the firm’s global real estate department, about reports of financial and personnel trouble at his firm. Click here for the full issue.
