140. Shel­don Solow

Forbes - - PROMOTION -

Son of a Rus­sian im­mi­grant brick­layer, Solow risked every­thing in 1972 to build 9 West 57th Street in Man­hat­tan. Home to KKR, Apollo Global Man­age­ment, Tiger Global Man­age­ment and Chanel, the tower is known for its un­ob­structed views of Cen­tral Park. More than a decade af­ter buy­ing land on the east­ern edge of Man­hat­tan, Solow fi­nally broke ground on a 42-story res­i­den­tial build­ing over­look­ing the East River last year. Solow is on the board of trus­tees of NYU. Though he didn’t re­ceive a de­gree, he took evening classes there while in high school.
