UPDATED, July 13, 2020, 7:45 p.m: Real estate developer and investor Harry Benitah and his wife sold their Bal Harbour waterfront property for $6.4 million.
Benitah and his wife, Leslie Gelrubin Benitah, sold the 20,000-square-foot lot at 84 Bal Bay Drive for $320 per square foot, records show. 84 Bal Bay Drive LLC, tied to Rachel Lebowicz of Surfside, bought the property.
Fabian Garcia-Diaz and Allan Kleer of One Sotheby’s International Realty represented the buyer and seller in the previous sale. Kleer said at the time that the Benitahs planned to build a new modern home on the site.
Moshe Goldshtein of Harding Realty represented the buyer and the seller in the deal.
The Benitahs have not yet built a new house on the site. The buyer purchased the property with approved construction plans, according to Goldshtein.
Harry Benitah’s projects include Buena Vista Flats and a 5,000-square-foot building at 3620 Northeast Second Avenue in the Miami Design District. In 2016, the Benitahs sold their Bay Point house to Miami Heat star Goran Dragic for $7.9 million.
