#18 Ghermezian Family Triple Five Group,
An intensively private Canadian family with Iranian roots (just try to find any photos, interviews or estimates of their net worth), their Triple Five development company is firmly in control of the American Dream project — the project with nearly 3 million square feet of retail and entertainment space. It faces continued legal opposition from both the Giants and Jets, but it also possesses a $390 million grant from the EDA, the largest ever given.
