WHERE YOU KNOW HIM FROM: Schrager was the co-founder of New York City’s Studio 54 nightclub, and he famously created the modern concept of the boutique hotel. In recent years, he has partnered with Marriott on the EDITION brand of hotels and luxury residences, including the forthcoming Tampa EDITION. Part of the Water Street Tampa development, this will be Tampa’s first five-star hotel and will include 37 condos on the building’s top floors.
I COME FROM NEW YORK CITY. Born and raised. Born in the Bronx, raised in Brooklyn. I have all the qualities of the quintessential New York City person.
