Forbes annual billionaire list is out, and Richard LeFrak and the Blackstone Group’s Stephen Schwarzman tied for the top spot occupied by a real estate baron, the New York Observer reported. Both men show a net worth of $5.2 billion, good for the 63rd spot on the list, according to Forbes.
Other real estate pros on the list include Related’s Steven Ross, at $4.4 billion, Hartz Mountain Industries’ Leonard Stern, at $4.2 billion, and attorney Sheldon Solow, at $3.5 billion.
Donald Trump was 128th overall with a reported $3.1 billion — a figure that has been disputed. John Catsimatidis, whose reported interest in the Food Emporium chain may soon diminish his fortune of $3 billion, took the 132nd spot. Tishman Speyer’s Jerry Speyer was tied with him.
