UPDATE April 15 1:48 P.M.: Miami investors just put down $24 million for a two-year-old apartment complex in Lantana, a coastal town in Palm Beach County just north of Manalapan.

The deal includes Bridgewater at Lake Osborne, a a 9.6-acre apartment community with 108 units at 2282 Lantana Road. County records show it was built two years ago by a partnership between multifamily builder Eastwind Development and the Index Investment Group.

Eastwind and Index paid $2.75 million for the acreage where they built Bridgewater in 2012. Now, the partnership has sold the community for $222,222 per unit to a a Delaware limited liability company managed by Jared Brunnabend.

This isn’t the first community Eastwind and Index have partnered on: the two built Dakota at Abacoa, a 190-unit complex in Jupiter, which they sold in February to Priderock Capital Partners for $42 million.
