Frank Ring, who sold his stake in a 13-building Manhattan South real estate portfolio to Gary Barnett’s Extell Development for $308 million in January, has kicked off the building of a new portfolio with his sons, The Real Deal has learned.

Ring paid $5 million for a pair of side-by-side townhouses at 468 and 466 9th Street in Park Slope, and $2.85 million for a semi-detached four-story, four-family rental property at 385 9th Street, listing broker Joanne Gay of Joanne Gay Realty told The Real Deal. In addition, Ring purchased a three-unit rental at 844 Union Street for $3.1 million, listed by Jill Braver and Brian Lehner of Brown Harris Stevens, and another three-unit rental at 336 10th Street, listed by the Corcoran Group’s Frank Castelluccio, Nicholas Hovsepian and Mara Ingram, for $2.24 million. The buildings are held in the name of 153-155 W23 LLC, which is wholly controlled by Frank Ring, according to Gay.

“For an independent broker, it’s rare having two properties next to each other in a tight market,” Gay said. “He’s going to keep them as rentals, and worked with his son Josh Ring as the agent on the sale of 385 9th Street.”

Ring picked up 466 and 468 9th Street as part of an estate sale, while Joe and Gina Accetta, who own a handful of rental properties in the area, were the sellers of 385 9th Street. A spokesperson from Brown Harris Stevens declined comment on the sale of 844 Union Street, and a spokesperson for the Corcoran Group declined to comment on the sale of 336 10th Street.

Ring declined to comment on the purchases.

Along with his father Leo and brother Michael, Ring built up a portfolio of Manhattan properties over several decades before Leo died in 1998.
