The New York Observer just released their list of this year’s 100 Most Powerful People in Real Estate. Rounding off the upper echelon of the city’s developers, scions, and politicians is none other than PrezBo. Says the Observer: “In a town where real estate is rarely measured in acres, Lee Bollinger is leading Columbia toward a 17-acre expansion, adding 6.8 million square feet to the campus. With the help of eminent domain, or at least the threat, he will be responsible for the wholesale transformation of West Harlem.”
PrezBo narrowly beat the guy responsible for NYU’s 6 million sq. feet of Greenwich Village expansion as well as New York’s new governor, David Paterson.
