UPDATED Feb. 15, 2 p.m.: A newly constructed beachfront house in Fort Lauderdale just traded for $8.5 million, property records show.

The roughly 5,700-square-foot home at 2930 North Atlantic Boulevard sold for about $1,490 per square foot. The buyers, Marie-Louise Skafte, founder of Skafte Global Law, P.A. and husband Roger L. Martin, were listed as trustees of living trusts in their own names.

Records show 2930 Partners LLC, led by Kenneth Fisher, paid $2.75 million for the 9,200-square-foot lot in 2012. He secured a $2.65 million construction loan in 2014, which was paid off with the recent sale.

The property hit the market in 2015 with Florida Luxurious Properties’ Julie Jones-Bernard for $7.9 million – meaning it sold for more than its original asking price. When construction was nearly complete the home was re-listed with Keller Williams Realty’s Elizabeth Lender for the same $7.9 million price, according to Redfin. Lender was not immediately available to comment.

The five-bedroom home features wood floors, marble countertops, a pool and floor-to-ceiling windows with ocean views. Nearby, a 18,272-square-foot lot sold for $7.2 million in 2016.

The property is near new condo and hotel developments, including Auberge Beach Residences & Spa and Adagio Fort Lauderdale Beach. Farther south is Paramount Fort Lauderdale Beach and the Gale Residences Fort Lauderdale Beach.

Correction: A previous version of the story had incorrect figures for square footage, price per square foot and number of bedrooms.
