65. Stephen Ross


His last name is plas­tered across the Univer­sity of Michi­gan—on the busi­ness school, the ath­letic cam­pus and the aca­demic cen­ter. The real es­tate de­vel­oper has given $378 mil­lion to his alma mater, in­clud­ing a $50 mil­lion gift in Septem­ber to sup­port stu­dent ca­reer devel­op­ment and stu­dent-run in­vest­ment funds. He’s be­hind Amer­ica’s largest pri­vate real es­tate project: the $25 billion Hud­son Yards, a 28-acre stretch on Man­hat­tan’s West Side, which counts among its ten­ants Coach, L’oréal and Black­rock.
