Days before his January 2017 inauguration, President Trump announced that New York City real estate developers Richard LeFrak and Steve Roth would head a new “infrastructure council.” The body would advise the president on how to rebuild America’s moribund roads, bridges, broadband networks, veterans hospitals and more. It was among Trump’s major domestic policy initiatives, a pledge to invest in the roots of the homeland.

Background and education

He was born in 1945 to a Jewish family in New York City. Born to Ethel Stone and real estate developer Samuel J. LeFrak. Richard received a B.A. and graduated cum laude from Amherst College. LeFrak also holds a J.D. from Columbia University. In 1998, LeFrak received an honorary doctorate degree from Amherst College.


In 1968, he joined his family’s real estate firm LeFrak. He was appointed president in 1975. Following the death of his father, Samuel J. LeFrak, Richard was elected chairman and CEO in 2003.

In 1986 Richard and his father began building in Jersey City, New Jersey on the site of abandoned piers and rail yards. The area is now known as Newport, a 600-acre neighborhood with 8 office buildings, 13 apartment towers, 2 hotels, an urban beach, schools, a retail mall, and parks.

He is also credited with leading the LeFrak organization’s expansion and diversification outside of the New York area. The company purchased a 12-story office building on Hollywood Boulevard as well as a medical building in Beverly Hills, California in 2008.

In 2012 LeFrak purchased a stake in a South Beach, Miami luxury mixed-use property, including a hotel formerly known as the Gansevoort. The project is expected to open in early 2014 as the eco-minded 1 Hotel Homes.
