Pacific Star Capital developer Aria Mehrabi sold his Fisher Island penthouse for $11 million, property records show.

Mehrabi’s Magi Houston LLC sold the seven-bedroom, 6,820-square-foot unit to OIF Corp., led by Mexican banker Salvador Onate Barron. Onate Barron is a director at Banco del Bajío, a Mexican bank that also does business as BanBajío.

Mehrabi sold the condo at Oceanside Fisher Island for $1,613 per square foot. It last sold in 2015 for $9 million, or $1,320 per square foot.

The unit, with eight bathrooms, one half-bathroom, was renovated in 2018. It features a 400-bottle wine cellar, maid’s quarters with a separate entrance, and a master suite with a marble bath and glass rain shower, according to the listing.
