Colorado Rockies player Carlos Gonzalez and his wife Indonesia paid $8 million for a condo at Porsche Design Tower in Sunny Isles Beach. 

Records show the couple closed on unit 2101 at 18555 Collins Avenue. The baseball player, known as “CarGo,” is a three-time All Star and has been playing for the Rockies since 2009. His last reported salary was $10.5 million in 2014. Indonesia Riera Gonzalez, meanwhile, is a model and actress. No financing was recorded for their new unit.

The Gonzalezes join a growing number of high-profile buyers at the beachfront development, including Brazilian media mogul Edir Macedo, known as “the Bishop,” and Russian businessman Igor Yakovlev.

The founder and principal of Brazilian investment firm AGBI Real Assets, Luciano Lewandowski, also just closed on his Porsche Design residence, paying $6 million for unit 3105 under P3105 LLC. The entity is controlled by Luciano and Valeria Lewandowski, bought unit 3105 at the 60-story tower. Lewandowski has been managing funds since the early 2000s, including as a co-founder of Prosperitas, then a co-founder of Hemisferio Sul Investimentos to now AGBI, according to Bloomberg.

The Lewandowskis financed their new condo with a $3.9 million mortgage from Citibank.

The luxury condo tower scored its temporary certificate of occupancy at the end of November. It has an estimated sellout of about $840 million, with $760 million presold. Dezer told The Real Deal last week that 126 of the luxury tower’s 132 units have been sold, and that 22 billionaires purchased units in the building.

By far, the project’s most widely publicized feature is its car elevator, which hoists residents and their automobiles to any of the tower’s condos. Other amenities include balcony plunge pools, and racing and golf simulators.

In September, a neighboring condo association filed a lawsuit against Porsche Design, alleging Porsche’s foundation work left cracks in the building’s structure.
