Mizner Development launched sales of a boutique single-family home project in Boca Raton.

The 10-unit development, called Enclave at Boca Harbour, is planned for the property at 5801 and 5805 Northeast Seventh Avenue and 690 Jeffery Street. Douglas Elliman agent Katia Reisler and Tangent Realty Corp. agent Jared Niles are co-listing the units, according to the project’s website.

Property records show an affiliate of Mizner Development, led by Avi Stern, paid close to $2.2 million for the assemblage of land in early 2020.

Stern was allegedly one of three real estate investors involved in a major scheme to rig online public foreclosure auctions between 2012 and 2015. He pleaded guilty in 2018 to felony charges of bid rigging tied to the property auctions in Palm Beach County, according to the Department of Justice. Stern was sentenced to a three-year probation, which he began in February 2019, along with a $32,800 fine and $160,000 in restitution. Court records filed earlier this year show his probation period was terminated early.

Stern is also CEO of MIA Real Holdings LLC, his LinkedIn shows.

His Boca Raton houses range in price from nearly $1.6 million to $1.9 million, and from 2,516 square feet to 3,232 square feet. They will have two-car garages and pools, according to the website.
