Setting out to solve a series of urban real estate problems in New York City, Adam Gordon co-founded Wildflower Ltd. seven years ago. At the time, Gordon noticed that changes in consumer behavior were not reflected in the city’s landscape. There was a dearth of lm production stages, e-commerce warehouses and self-storage locations. Today, in partnership with Robert De Niro, Wildflower Studios is developing a 650,000-square-foot, $400 million movie studio in Queens. It is building a 400,000-square foot, multilevel warehouse in Brooklyn for e-commerce giant Amazon. The firm has become a prolific storage investor. In 2017 Gordon sold a portfolio of facilities to Prime Storage Group for $184 million.
