A member of the Applebaum family sold a unit at the Bristol in West Palm Beach for $16 million, marking a $5 million profit in less than a year.

BCPBFL LLC, which is linked to Pamela Applebaum, sold unit 2003 to The Edgewater Financial Trust. Pamela is the daughter of Eugene Applebaum, an entrepreneur and philanthropist whose drugstore chain, Arbor Drugs, sold to CVS in 1998 for nearly $1.5 billion.

Samantha Curry of Douglas Elliman brokered the deal. Elliman declined to comment.

Applebaum’s LLC paid $11 million, or nearly $1,600 per square foot, for the 7,079 square-foot a year ago.

The three-bedroom, five-and-a-half bathroom condo hit the market for $15 million.

Flagler Investors, led by Al Adelson and Gene Golub, developed the Bristol, a 25-story, 69-unit luxury tower at 1100 South Flagler Drive.
