#10. Carlo Fidani
Major holdings: Orlando Corp.
Fidani is a third-generation construction magnate. His Orlando Corp. sparked a bidding war last November when it hung a “for sale” sign on Toronto’s upscale Bayview Village mall. The British Columbia Investment Management Corp. ultimately won the lot for $500 million, making it the biggest property deal done in 2013. Another property, the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, welcomed NASCAR for the second consecutive year; Fidani is lobbying for an instalment of the motorsport’s title tournament, the Sprint Cup, to follow.
