Johanna Greenbaum, a 32-year-old Harvard graduate who was most recently counsel and deputy chief of staff to Deputy Mayor for Economic Development Robert Steel, has been tapped to lead real estate development for Kushner Companies, Crain’s reported.

“Johanna has a remarkable track record overseeing complex projects and brings a fresh approach and new vision for the next generation of real estate we are building across the city,” Jared Kushner, president of Kushner Companies, told Crain’s. Last week, Kushner closed on a $130 million portfolio of 17 walk-up apartment buildings in Downtown Manhattan, as The Real Deal previously reported.

“There are always great things to accomplish when you work for the city, especially for someone as great as Michael Bloomberg—I have drunk the Kool-Aid,” Greenbaum told Crain’s. “But it was time to let another person into City Hall.” During her time with the city, Greenbaum spearheaded the acquisition of the third section of the High Line, the implementation of New York City Bike Share, as well as the Greener, Greater Buildings Plan.
