UPDATED, Jan. 21, 1:34 p.m.: New York broker Moshe Majeski scooped up a 26-unit Bay Harbor Islands multifamily portfolio for $8.2 million, marking his first commercial real estate investment in South Florida.

Majeski, through an affiliate, bought the three adjacent buildings at 1029, 1035 and 1043 94th Street from Pro-Nan Investments IV, managed by Mary Shaked, records show. Majeski’s buying entity scored a $6.1 million loan for the purchase from Brooklyn-based FM Home Loans.

Moshe Goldshtein of One Sotheby’s international Realty represented Majeski, and Boris Vertsberger of FIP Realty Services represented the seller.

The two-story buildings sit on nearly 0.8 acres, property records show. The 12-unit apartment property at 1029 94th Street was constructed in 1951, the six-unit one at 1035 94th Street in 1957, and the eight-unit one at 1043 94th Street in 1947.

Majeski, who leads the New York-based real estate company The Moshe Group, said the fully leased properties are in good condition, but he will make upgrades in the future. The lots open the opportunity for redevelopment in the future, although he has no concrete plans, Majeski said.

“We have three contiguous lots. It’s almost unheard of on the island,” he said, adding that he wants to continue investing in the area. “I feel this community is growing. Bay Harbor Islands is just a very unique submarket.”

Majeski, who used to work for Meridian Capital Group, owns a condo in nearby Bal Harbour that he and his wife, Sherry, bought last year for $1.6 million, according to property records.
