Upcoming issue: Surreal estate

Our August issue will take you down the rabbit hole of the scariest and strangest realities in the industry today

A 14-foot-tall, bright red bunny rabbit in the lobby of an office building. A grifting developer skimming quarters from a laundromat. A landlord allegedly threatening tenants with a gun that didn’t exist. A politician fighting to strengthen foreclosure protections — while his own home is in foreclosure.

In the words of a Nobel Prize laureate, something is happening here, but you don’t know what it is. But these are neither Dalí-painted scenes nor Bob Dylan lyrics. They are vignettes from our upcoming August 2021 issue, slated to hit the newsstands early next week.

Let TRD be your guide in this uncanny fever dream of a world where society can launch a bored billionaire into space for 10 minutes but can’t keep residential buildings safe from unspeakable tragedy. Explore broker-developer drama, the elaborate history behind one of the year’s most talked-about zoning disputes and the gathering storm around one of the industry’s ascendant stars.

All of these, plus an abundance of original features on the crisis facing mom-and-pop landlords, home ownership in historically black neighborhoods and — for some beach reading — the luxury lifestyles enjoyed by the industry’s wealthiest players.
