UPDATED, Feb. 22, 10:58 a.m: A trust tied to Chicago’s Crown family bought a condo in Miami Beach’s Apogee for $11.3 million as the luxury development continues to demand high resale prices.

The four-bedroom, three-and-a half bathroom condo last sold in 2009 for $5.45 million, records show.
Dora Puig of Luxe Living Realty represented the buyer and seller in the deal, according to Redfin.
Despite a slowdown in the Miami’s luxury condo market, resales at Apogee in Miami Beach’s South-of-Fifth neighborhood have done well.
In May, billionaire hedge funder John Liew and his wife Serena paid $13.5 million, or $3,600 per square foot, for unit 1604 at Apogee.
The 22-story building was built by the Related Group in 2007 and has about 67 units. It was designed by Sieger-Suarez.
The Crown family is one of the wealthiest families in Chicago with interests in the New York Yankees, the Chicago Bulls, the Rockefeller Center and General Dynamics. The family has a large philanthropic organization.
