Christopher Leavitt of Douglas Elliman represented both the seller and buyer in The Bristol deal.

Worth purchased the unit for $8.8 million in November from the developer, the same year the high-rise was completed, records show.

The five-bedroom, 5,181-square-foot condo was listed for $13 million, just a month after Worth’s purchase. After a handful of price reductions, the most recent asking price was $10 million in July. The sale price equates to $1,670 per square foot.

Worth founded American Benefits Consulting, an employee benefits consulting firm, and sold it to Alliant Insurance Services in 2015.

The Bristol, a 25-story, 69-unit building developed by Flagler Investors’ Al Adelson and Gene Golub, is the first new luxury condo building to be delivered in West Palm Beach over the past decade.

Last month, the CEO of a Toronto-based financial services company paid $6.5 million for a condo at The Bristol. Also in August, Angela Koch, the ex-wife of Bill Koch, sold her five-bedroom West Palm Beach home for $5.2 million.
