This year’s Owners Magazine is, by far, our most ambitious effort yet. In time I suspect it will rival our annual Power 100 list as one of the most anticipated special issues of the year.

The Observer Media Group is proud to announce The Commercial Observer’s second annual Owners Magazine, a once-a-year bacchanal designed for the men and women who own commercial real estate in New York City. In this year’s issue—at 108 pages, twice the size of last year’s effort — 40 of the city’s biggest real estate icons including Donald Trump, Douglas Durst and Anthony Malkin predict the upcoming presidential elections, name personal role models, divulge their successes and failures and answer a dozen other intimate questions involving Manhattan’s ultra-competitive real estate industry.

Among the nuggets from this year’s questionnaire, notable landlords offer a wide-range of anecdotes and quotations, including:

· “It would be nice to own Versailles!”
· “My most prized possession is my NY Yankees World Series trophy & ring”
· “The next president of the United States should be Stephen Colbert”
· “The Sopranos may not have directly affected my career, but I think it's a good metaphor for running a medium-sized American business.”

“This year’s Owners Magazine is, by far, our most ambitious effort yet,” said Jotham Sederstrom, editor-in-chief of The Commercial Observer. “In time I suspect it will rival our annual Power 100 list as one of the most anticipated special issues of the year.”

In addition to 42 pages of Owner Inquisition Q&A’s, this year’s magazine will feature:
· Exclusive map of who controls Manhattan, by zip code
· Features on New York City’s mysterious tax assessment formula, the next generation of Manhattan’s most storied real estate dynasties, the emotions, narcissism and inner demons that drive men to build, and a host of other stories
· Analytical data, helpful charts and tools, all exclusive to The Owners Magazine

The Owners Magazine hits stands September 18.
