The co-chairman and CEO of a New York financial advisory firm just paid $7.55 million for a unit at Palazzo del Sol in Fisher Island.
Kenneth Pollinger of Klingenstein Fields Wealth Advisors and his wife Amy bought a 3,835-square-foot, three-bedroom unit at the newly completed tower, at 7000 Fisher Island Drive, a spokesperson for the project told The Real Deal. Zachary Belil of Douglas Elliman represented the buyers, and Lars Ekdahl represented the developer.
The Pollingers paid about $1,970 per square foot for the last corner unit in the building, which was completed a year ago by PDS Development, led by Heinrich von Hanau. The unit was listed for $8.1 million, Belil said.
The Palazzo unit has Boffi kitchens and master bathrooms, Porshe Design Studio lighting, and a terrace. Belil said the couple was looking for a marina, golf course, security and other amenities that the island offers. The Pollingers have multiple homes across the country, but “they will try to spend as much time as possible here,” Belil said. “For Mr. Pollinger, it’s a very easy drive from the Miami airport to Fisher Island.”
The building’s 43 units go up to 9,800 square feet. Unit owners include high-profile attorney Jim Ferraro, Azerbaijani billionaire Aras Agalarov, and Yard House founder and CEO Steele Platt. Buyers also received a custom Garia golf cart. Kobi Karp designed the 10-story building, and Enzo Enea handled landscaping. Dora Puig is leading sales of Palazzo del Sol.
Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly identified the purchase price as $7.75 million. It is $7.55 million.
