Records show that the 1-acre site was previously sold in 1995 for $912,500. The site, a two-story building, is approximately 10K SF and was originally delivered in 1967. Property records also show there is a boat repair yard on site. Soffer, who in the last year has focused on expanding his residential portfolio, has a project in the works with top developer Related Group. The two giant development houses are in the construction phase for Las Carreras, a 642-unit building in Hialeah.
Lincoln Property Co. is the new owner of the Manor Broken Sound complex in Boca Raton after the firm acquired the property from Related Group and Rockpoint for $194M, The Real Deal reported.

Related Group and Rockpoint bought the Manor Broken Sound site back in 2019 for $20M and recently delivered the building. This was the first major, multifamily development project in Boca Raton for Related Group. The development is made up of six buildings with 261 apartments and six villas that each have six separate units. One-bedroom to three-bedroom apartments are available for rents that range between $2,893 and $5,587, according to the building’s listings online. The deal comes out to approximately $650K per unit.
