Hedge funder Daniel Nir and philanthropist Jill Braufman plunked down $12 million for a new penthouse in Surfside.

The couple closed on Penthouse 3 in the north tower of the Four Seasons Private Residences at The Surf Club, property records show. Nir is founder and CEO of Gracie Capital, a New York hedge fund.

Last year, Nir and Braufman sold their Upper East Side co-op in Manhattan for $52 million.

At the Four Seasons in Surfside, they join a list of buyers who include Theory co-founder and CEO Andrew Rosen, Aldo founder Albert Bensadoun, and New York real estate developer Howard Swarzman.

Fort Partners completed the project, which includes a 77-room hotel and two 12-story residential towers, earlier this year. Units range from $3.7 to $31 million, and from 1,800 to more than 7,000 square feet.

The development also features a private club, two restaurants, four swimming pools, cabanas, a gym and oceanside gardens. It was designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Meier with Kobi Karp.

Records show Penthouse 6 in the south tower also closed for $21 million. The buyer is 2017 Surf Club Residences Trust, which is managed by Mark F. Raymond, managing partner in the Miami office of Broad and Cassel.
