The May issue of The Real Deal is now live on our iPad app. The iPad app combines the beauty of the full print issue with the convenience of the online format. It aims to provide a rich media experience with extended photo galleries, expanded charts and graphs — we know you love those — and a clipping tool, allowing users to crop articles, photos and more. It’s also really easy to share, allowing pull quotes to be posted quickly to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and other social media sites.
Download the app for free here, and read a single issue for $2.99, or sign up for an annual subscription for $14.99. This month, the South Florida supplement – TRD’s inside scoop on the biggest deals and developments in the South Florida market – is free with the iPad issue.
The central theme of The Real Deal‘s May issue, which went live Wednesday, is competition. Adam Pincus covers the battle for anchor office tenants on Manhattan’s far West Side. In TRD‘s annual ranking of the borough’s biggest residential firms, Katherine Clarke zeroes in on the three problems that Manhattan’s brokerages are facing: inventory, inventory, inventory. And C.J. Hughes analyzes which Manhattan neighborhoods have been hit hardest by the inventory squeeze.
Adam Piore peers into the world of RXR Realty’s Scott Rechler. And David Jones profiles Ed Scheetz, the former CEO of Morgans Hotel Group. Stepping out of New York City, Hayley Kaplan chronicles the hottest global projects being pursued by top U.S. developers. —Hiten Samtani
