Kerma Capital is managed by Jeff Perlow, an attorney in Aventura, and Shlomi Ezra, who runs the Soho Asian Bar and Grill, a Kosher restaurant in Aventura.

The lot totals 7,000 square feet and has 35 feet of frontage on Collins Avenue. The 3,200-square-foot retail space was most recently leased to the women’s clothing store Planet Blue and is now vacant.
The Collins Avenue area is home to other retailers, including H&M, Victoria’s Secret, Sephora and Aldo.
