UPDATED, March 11, 3 p.m.: A Fort Lauderdale builder sold his lakefront Fort Lauderdale home for $5.5 million.

Property records show Robert and Gail Gordon sold the five-bedroom, 5,482-square-foot house at 2401 Solar Plaza Drive to a Maryland LLC.

The buyer, RRBLVD LLC, is tied to Richard M. Kremen, a DLA Piper shareholder. Kremen focuses on insolvency cases, including Chapter 11 bankruptcies and receiverships, according to the law firm’s website.

According to property records, a company led by Robert Gordon paid $950,000 in 2017 for the 7,500-square-foot lot in Fort Lauderdale. The couple completed the house last year.

The property fronts Sunset Lake and includes a new seawall, concrete dock, pool, grill and fire table, according to the listing. The home features an open floor plan with a wet bar, theater, floating glass staircase, a master suite with a private balcony, two laundry rooms, a three-car garage with car lifts, and an extra kitchen.

The house sold for about $1,003 per square foot. It was listed with Tim Elmes of Compass. Burton Horwitz of Keller Williams Realty Boca Raton brought the buyer.

A number of luxury homes have sold in recent months in Fort Lauderdale. Just this week, two houses sold in the Harbor Beach neighborhood for $8 million and $11 million.

A waterfront mansion featuring a full stock trading room at 220 North Compass Drive also sold in recent days for $11.5 million. And earlier this month, the owner of a crane company picked up a waterfront mansion in Fort Lauderdale at 2300 Aqua Vista Boulevard for $12.2 million.

Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly identified the sellers of the house as former New Jersey state senator Robert Gordon and attorney Gail Gordon. They are in no way affiliated with the property. The Real Deal regrets the error.
