A third-generation Fisher, and grandson of one of the original partners, Larry, Kenneth oversees marketing and leasing of the firm’s portfolio, which includes the office towers 299 Park Avenue, 605 Third Avenue and 1345 Avenue of the Americas. Due to an investment partnership with Morgan Stanley, Fisher Brothers was prohibited from building in New York for many years. But the firm is now back in development mode, with projects such as 111 Murray Street, a Tribeca luxury condo with a projected sellout of $973 million, and a luxury rental in Murray Hill. [more]
