Jed Walentas: one of New York's post-Lehman "boom brands." The Two Trees Management founder's son and business partner is the brains behind the Wythe Hotel, Mercedes House, and, of course, the Williamsburg waterfront's Domino megaproject. He is, thank god, decidedly against the Duane Reade-ification of NYC: "When you build a whole bunch of brand-new buildings financed by banks and have, you know, a fuckload of debt service, you end up with a lot of Duane Reades. But if you go to Domino and put Starbucks in the bottom, it'll be an uninteresting place." [NYM, previously]
