UPDATED, Sept. 10, 9:26 a.m.: Jonathan Kislak, son of the late real estate investor Jay Kislak, traded his Coconut Grove mansion for a penthouse at Grovenor House.

Kislak and his wife, Kristine, bought unit 3202 at 2627 South Bayshore Drive in Miami for $7 million, according to records. The sellers are Benny and Annie Bergeron, who had paid $7 million for the condo in 2013.

The two-story, 7,061-square-foot penthouse was designed by architect Jenifer Briley and features multiple terraces and a rooftop area with panoramic views of marinas and Biscayne Bay, according to the listing.

Jorge Uribe of One Sotheby’s International Realty represented both the sellers and buyers.

The four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom condo was originally listed in 2017 for nearly $9.9 million. It had various price chops since then, most recently to $7.6 million in May 2019.

Last month, Kislak sold his 8,540-square-foot mansion at 3570 Battersea Road to Oscar J. Villa for $8.3 million. Kislak bought the Coconut Grove home in 1995 for $2.2 million.
