A company tied to a Russian helicopter operator with locations in the Middle East and around the world paid $10.12 million for a luxury condo at Oceana Bal Harbour.

Records show Heliluxe Inc., an entity controlled by Kirill Stadnikov and Tatiana Zorina, bought unit 2401 in the south tower of Oceana, which was completed in November. Stadnikov founded and runs United Arab Emirates-based Heli Sky, a company that provides helicopters, training, pilots and related services, according to its website. Heli Sky’s fleet is located in countries like Afghanistan, Pakistan and Russia.

Stadnikov is also part of the Offshore Leaks database via Heli Sky, according the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists database.

Oceana Bal Harbour, a 28-story, 240-unit condo tower developed by Eduardo Costantini‘s Consultatio, has an estimated $1.3 billion sellout, which would set a record in South Florida.

Records show 100 units have closed so far at Oceana Bal Harbour since it was completed late last year. Owners include Fidelity Investments portfolio manager Mark Notkin, Accenture managing director Paul Rakowski and Estee Lauder Companies vice president Amy DiGeso, and NetApp vice chairman Tom Mendoza, as well as a list of foreign buyers.

Designed by Arquitectonica, Oceana Bal Harbour also has four upper penthouses, two of which were under contract for $26 million each earlier this year. Piero Lissoni designed the interiors, the private restaurant and the penthouse bathrooms. Enzo Enea designed the pool deck landscape.

The 5.5-acre site was formerly known as the Bal Harbour Beach Club before Consultatio purchased it in 2012 for $220 million. A year later, the developer closed on a $332 million construction loan from a group of lenders led by HSBC.
