A longtime fundraiser of Hillary and Bill Clinton and the former publisher of Esquire just purchased condos at the Four Seasons Residences at The Surf Club, property records show.

Beth and Ronald Dozoretz paid $7.4 million on unit 815 at the recently completed luxury condo and hotel project, a 9-acre development at 9101 Collins Avenue in Surfside. Beth Dozoretz has raised millions of dollars for the Clintons’ campaigns and served as finance chair of the Democratic National Committee in the ’90s. Her husband, Ronald, heads FHC Health Systems, a Virginia-based health care company, and is reportedly worth $250 million.

Property records show Alan and Joy Greenberg also purchased a unit at the Four Seasons. Alan Greenberg, the former publisher of Esquire and the president of Avenues, a New York-based private school system, and his wife Joy paid $7.7 million for their condo.

Fort Partners developed the project, which includes a 72-room hotel, two 12-story residential towers, a private club, two restaurants, four swimming pools, cabanas, a gym, oceanside gardens and a park. It was designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Meier with Kobi Karp, and was built on the site of the former private beach club founded in 1930 by Henry Firestone Club and designed by Russell Pancoast.

Fort Partners CEO Nadim Ashi has said the development hit $1 billion in condo presales. Condo units range in price from $3.4 million to $18 million, and in size from 1,400 square feet to more than 7,000 square feet. The average price per square foot is about $2,400, according to Ashi.

Other unit owners at the Four Seasons include telecommunications tycoon Rajendra Singh, former Publix Super Markets CEO Charles Jenkins Jr. and Michael J. Sacks, CEO of Chicago-based GCM Grosvenor investment firm.
