The Apollo Group, a Miami-based cruise ship food, catering and logistics company, has paid $15 million for an industrial warehouse in unincorporated Miami-Dade, county records show.

Apollo acquired the 213,131-square-foot building at 6950 Northwest 77th Court in Miami. Leyjon Investments Corp. is the seller. Aurelio, Giraldo and Jonathan Leyva are listed on the seller’s corporate records.

The two-story warehouse, which includes a showroom, was built in 1961 and sits on 8.86 acres.

Jim McCoy from CBC Alliance represented the seller in the deal. Luis Nuñez represented the buyer.

Tenants include Bijoux Terner, a jewelry company, and Perry Ellis. Apollo is headquartered nearby, at 1775 Northwest 70th Avenue.

“The transaction’s $70 per square foot price point was a good price for both buyer and seller, and reflects the continued health of the Airport West industrial market,” McCoy said in a statement. “While institutional investors with tight parameters have aggressively combed through the region’s inventory over the last several years, private investors and end-users continue to find appealing transactions that fit their needs.”
