A wealthy Polish investor is looking to sell his unit at Porsche Design Tower with an auction house after trying his hand at the flooded luxury condo market.
AD Royale, a company controlled by Dariusz Robert Wojdyga and his wife Agnieszka Gasior, owns the three-bedroom, 4,794-square-foot unit on the 36th floor of the Sunny Isles Beach condo tower, at 18555 Collins Avenue. The couple is working with their listing agent, Marc Hameroff of Engel & Völkers Miami, and Concierge Auctions is holding the auction July 27 to July 31 to sell unit 3605. There is no reserve.
Wojdyga sold his stake in the Polish beverage company Hoopa for 230 million Polish Zlotys in 2008, according to the publication Business Polska. Today that equates to more than $64 million. Wojdyga also has a stake in Opera TFI, an investment manager, Polish travel website Wakacje.pl and baby products company EcoWipes, also based in Poland, the publication said.
The Porsche Design unit hit the market in October for $8.9 million. The couple paid $6.7 million for the condo in March 2017.
“I think that to shake up the market because there’s so much inventory out there we have to do something to stand out,” Hameroff said. “In a very short period of time … You’re creating urgency.”
Hameroff said the unit has not been lived in and it was only recently completed with Interiors by Steven G. Features include a designer kitchen with Miele appliances and motorized cabinets, a master bathroom with a stone spa bath and Dornbracht fixtures, according to a press release.
Dezer Development completed the 132-unit, 60-story tower in November 2016. The building is known for its “Dezervator,” a patented car elevator that takes residents up to their units in their cars. A number of owners have tried to flip their units since closing on them less than two years ago.
