The Closing: Ziel Feldman on Gary Barnett, roller coasters and the Jewish singles scene

From the July issue: Ziel Feldman is the founder of investment and development company HFZ Capital Group and the chairman of Polar Investments. A graduate of Queens College and Cardozo Law School, Feldman has bought, sold and developed over 10,000 residential units over the course of his career. Prior to launching HFZ in 2005, he was a principal at the national development firm Property Markets Group, which bought and rehabbed the 226-unit Belnord apartment building in 1994. HFZ recently launched sales at the Marquand, a new 40-unit condo project at 11 East 68th Street, where prices start at $15 million. The company will soon bring to market a new 123-unit condo project at 303 East 51st Street in Turtle Bay, on the site of a deadly 2008 crane collapse. [more]
