Ruvelson owns the properties through a company called Sperone Land. A previous report on GlobeSt said that Ruvelson founded the entity in 2012.

Icon Company, another firm that Ruvelson operates, is currently building a large multifamily development in Panorama City in the San Fernando Valley. The $150 million project, called The Icon at Panorama City, is a 623-unit housing development built on the former site of the Montgomery Ward shopping center. The project got City Council approval in 2018. However, it faced legal challenges from labor unions, with questions being raised about the project’s environmental impact report.

David Kaufman holds the listing for the portfolio. He did not respond to a request for comment.
