WHAT MAKES HIM HAUTE: Credited with revolutionizing the entertainment and hospitality industries, Schrager burst onto the scene in the 70s with his club Studio 54. He has since redefined the boutique hotel genre, and his residential projects, such as 40 Bond and 50 Gramercy Park North, make national headlines. Schrager reportedly inked a deal in May of 2009 with Murray Hill Properties LLC, a New York City real estate investment firm, to develop a six-star, ultra luxury hotel at 1414 Avenue of the Americas.
