Robbins Property Associates just purchased an apartment complex in Boynton Beach for $43 million from the Claremont Companies.

Tampa-based Robbins Property acquired the 216-unit Verona at Boynton Beach at 1575 Southwest Eighth Street for $199,000 per apartment. Robbins Property financed the purchase with the $29.8 million mortgage from Berkadia, property records show.

Claremont Properties sold the complex to Robbins Property. Claremont paid $27.8 million for the property in 2013. Built in 2002, the complex includes a renovated clubhouse, a 24-hour gym, a pool, and a pet spa.

Robbins Property Associates was founded in 2009 by brothers Mitchell and Steve Robbins to acquire multifamily communities.

The firm merged with North Palm Beach-based Electra America in late 2016. It specializes in value-add and distressed properties, and has bought and sold more than 100,000 apartments since 1996.
