A bundle of properties on Harding Avenue in Miami Beach sold for $5 million, according to a deed recorded on Thursday. 

Harding Excalibur, an LLC led by Andres Goldenberg and Alejandro Eskenazi, bought the four parcels at 8011, 8017, 8021 and 8035 Harding Avenue from Sea Moon Inc.

The assemblage consists of three multifamily apartment buildings and one vacant lot, the latter of which is also zoned for residential multifamily. The buildings were constructed between 1938 and 1956, according to Miami-Dade County property records.

Daniele Rosso and Fabio Luciani with Rome addresses, and Ugo Valenti of Brickell are listed on the seller’s corporate records. Sea Moon paid a combined $4.36 million for the properties between July and August of last year.

The Venezuelan developers behind Harding Excalibur recently submitted plans for an 28-story, 293-foot residential tower at Miami’s Edgewater neighborhood, developers said. They acquired the site for $3.55 million earlier this year.

Their company is Spider, a development, accounting and legal firm, according to a spokesperson. Spider has spent more than $25 million and more than 120,000 square feet in Edgewater and Miami Beach. The firm has plans to continue looking at Edgewater for more opportunities, and eventually to expand in South Florida and throughout the state. Goldenberg heads Spider as its chairman, while Eskenazi leads the board of director and operations.

Nearby, a New York investor was given the green light to build a luxury apartment building at 8204 Harding Avenue, which is currently a vacant lot. Guy Smilovich, principal of Sterling Holdings, is developing the 13-unit project, which will include a mechanical lift parking system and connect to an existing Art Deco building.
