Reality TV’s the TurnAround King just paid $13.5 million for an office building in Aventura.

Property records show Grant Cardone, who produces and stars in his TV show, paid about $540 per foot for the Northern Trust Bank building at 18901 Northeast 29th Avenue.

Guarapo Aventura LLC, led by real estate investor Matthew Lvoff, sold the 25,000-square-foot building to Cardone’s 10X HQ LLC. The buyer financed the deal with a $13.5 million mortgage from City National Bank.

The 1.5-acre property, near the Intracoastal Waterway, last sold in 2015 for $14.5 million, which means it just traded at a loss of $1 million.
