Drafted to Bill de Blasio’s transition team as a real estate advisor, Forest City Ratner president and CEO Ms. Gilmartin has both the mayor’s ear and the reins of a company that has proven remarkably cunning in winning generous public financial support for massive—and massively troubled—projects like Atlantic Yards and MetroTech Center. And if her powerful hand in shaping the skyline weren’t enough, Ms. Gilmartin recently moved to a $3.85 million Park Slope townhouse, gilding her Brooklyn bona fides.
