South Florida car magnate Alan Potamkin just closed on a new condo in Surfside.

Potamkin paid $21.85 million for unit 811 in the south tower of the Four Seasons Private Residences at The Surf Club, according to property records. He and his wife, Brigitt Rok Potamkin, financed the deal with a $14.2 million mortgage from Northern Trust. She was previously married to Miami real estate investor Sergio Rok.

In March, the couple sold their Coral Gables estate at 1 Casuarina Concourse for $43.7 million, a significant drop from the $67 million asking price. The three-story home had a myriad of features, including built-in saltwater aquariums, an aviary, a 1,500-bottle wine room and a 100-foot-long dock.

At the Four Seasons, their neighbors include hedge funder Daniel Nir, 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, about a year ago. 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.
