Code Capital Partners, a private equity firm led by Jared Remington, bought the property in January 2020 for $44.6 million, records show.

Code Capital owns and operates more than 50 multifamily properties totaling over 9,000 units across 15 markets in the U.S., according to its website.

FBE, led by Abraham Fruchthandler and managed by Yehoshua Leib Fruchthandler, has been investing in New York. It bought five properties in South Brooklyn for $58 million in 2020, less than a year after landing a $63 million acquisition loan to buy the properties at 2001-2045 Story Avenue in the Castle Hill neighborhood.

The Lauderhill deal comes amid a hot South Florida multifamily market. Most recently, Crow Holdings bought the Alta Congress complex in Delray Beach for $111.75 million, and KPC Properties bought the Axis at One Pine in Plantation for $46 million.
