Downtown Miami Land Trades For $39 Million

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Condo Vultures® LLC

A Boca Raton company has paid $39 million for nearly 300,000 square feet of vacant land situated on nine parcels in Downtown Miami, according to a new report from the Condo Vultures® Bulk Deals Database.

The newly created PWV Group 1 Holdings LLC, with Gary N. Gerson as registered agent, paid $130 per square foot on Sept. 21 for 27 lots located a block west of four new highrise condo towers on Downtown Miami's Biscayne Boulevard, according to research.

The seller, six corporations controlled by AI Holdings (USA) Corp with Tamir Kazaz as chief financial officer, paid a combined $32.3 million, or $108 per square foot, for the land, which was acquired between August 1999 and March 2006, according to Miami-Dade County records.

The powerful Africa Israel fund controls AI Holdings (USA) Corp, according to a notarized document recorded with the deed.

"The purchase price works out to a gross premium of 21 percent for the seller minus expenses, and there have been many of them," said Peter Zalewski, a principal with the Bal Harbour, Fla.-based real estate consultancy Condo Vultures® LLC. "For the buyer, the purchase price is 8 percent less than today's assessed value of $41.6 million, or $139 per square foot, for property tax purposes."
