Former Miami Dolphins head coach Don Shula purchased a luxury condo at the Four Seasons Residences at The Surf Club.

Property records reveal that a Delaware company that lists Shula’s Indian Creek Village address, paid $5.5 million for unit 205 in the south building of the Four Seasons development, at 9011 Collins Avenue in Surfside. The deal for the four-bedroom, 3,925-square-foot unit closed on Dec. 30.

The Pro Football Hall of Famer lives with his wife, Mary Ann Stephens, in a waterfront estate on Indian Creek Island. It was previously owned by Mary Ann and her ex-husband, oilman and investment banker Jackson T. Stephens.

Shula, who turned 90 last week, played for Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Colts, and Washington Redskins, but gained fame for his time as head coach of the Dolphins. He led the team to two Super Bowl victories and the only perfect season in N.F.L. history.

At the Four Seasons, Shula and Stephens will be rubbing elbows with buyers who include former head coach and current Miami Heat president Pat Riley and his wife, Christine; Harrison LeFrak and Richard LeFrak, in separate deals; former Publix CEO Charles Jenkins Jr.; billionaire real estate and casino tycoon Neil Bluhm; and Groupon founder Eric Lefkofsky, who paid nearly $31 million for a penthouse in the south tower in 2018.

Fort Partners developed the Surf Club, which includes 150 condo units, a 72-room Four Seasons hotel, a Le Sirenuse restaurant and a Thomas Keller restaurant. The oceanfront project was designed by New York architect Richard Meier along with Miami-based architect Kobi Karp.

Fort Partners also owns land next door to the Surf Club that it plans to develop.
