Ronson’s units at 828 Fifth officially hit market

British real estate developer Howard Ronson had dreamed of reuniting the nine co-op units at 828 Fifth Avenue as a single-family home. Alas, those dreams, like Ronson, have died, the Wall Street Journal reported.

While the Ronson family managed to buy four of the nine units at the 64th Street mansion, including the penthouse, they have now put the four units on the market for a total of $72 million.

Pam Liebman, president of Corcoran Group, told the Journal the Ronsons were looking for a “person with vision,” to purchase the units, which comprise 72 percent of the total co-op, hence the price.

Corcoran’s Sharon Baum, Leighton Candler and Deborah Grubman, as well as Stribling broker Alexa Lambert have the listing. [Journal]
