John Sasso, managing partner at The Upside Property Advisors, brokered the deal, representing both sides.

Progresso Village sits between historic Sistrunk and Flagler Village in Fort Lauderdale. The neighborhood is largely made up of single-family homes, townhouses and small apartment complexes, but developers are increasingly setting their sights on the area due to its proximity to Flagler Village, Fort Lauderdale’s arts and entertainment district.

In Progresso Village, Florida East Coast Industries is planning to build a 14-story office and retail building at 101 Northwest Third Street near the Brightline station.

Global Horizons Group is led by Guy Goldberg and Shai Yitzhaki. It was founded in 2009 and focuses on buying multi-tenant underperforming residential properties, renovating the properties and then selling them after three to five years, according to its website.
