Sheldon Solow is a vetaran Manhattan real estate developer, and the CEO of Solow Realty & Development and an affiliated company, Solow Management. Forbes estimates his net worth at $3.6 billion. Solow was born in Brooklyn in 1928 and is the son of a bricklayer. He got his start in real estate in the early 1970s, when he built a 50-story office building at 9 West 57th Street called the Solow Building. He also owns a portfolio of East Side rental towers. He is known for litigiousness in his business dealings and has been described as reclusive.

Solow's most ambitious project is a development site along the East River that calls for seven towers on nine acres along First Avenue, just south of the United Nations. Construction has been delayed for 10 years due to legal battles between Solow and his partners.

Solow attended New York University but did not earn a degree. He is married to sculptor and jewelry designer Mia Fonssagrives-Solow with whom he has two children. His son, Stefan, works in the family real estate business. Solow collects modernist and Renaissance art.
