Hedge funder Daniel Nir and philanthropist Jill Braufman plunked down $12 million for a new penthouse in Surfside.

The couple closed on Penthouse 3 in the north tower of the Four Seasons Private Residences at The Surf Club, property records show. Nir is founder and CEO of Gracie Capital, a New York hedge fund.

Last year, Nir and Braufman sold their Upper East Side co-op in Manhattan for $52 million.

At the Four Seasons in Surfside, they join a list of buyers who include Theory co-founder and CEO Andrew Rosen, Aldo founder Albert Bensadoun, and New York real estate developer Howard Swarzman.

Fort Partners completed the project, which includes a 77-room hotel and two 12-story residential towers, earlier this year. Units range from $3.7 to $31 million, and from 1,800 to more than 7,000 square feet.

The development also features a private club, two restaurants, four swimming pools, cabanas, a gym and oceanside gardens. It was designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Meier with Kobi Karp.

Records show Penthouse 6 in the south tower also closed for $21 million. The buyer is 2017 Surf Club Residences Trust, which is managed by Mark F. Raymond, managing partner in the Miami office of Broad and Cassel.

A Miami real estate investment and development firm just flipped a site in Edgewater for $5.24 million.

Property records show an affiliate of TBD Group, a Key Biscayne company owned by Miami architects Tamara and Bernadette Despujols and their parents Leonor Ortega and Claudio Despujols, sold the 0.37-acre lot at 3200 Biscayne Boulevard to Green Circle Development, led by Sexton E. Garcia.

It sold for nearly $330 per square foot.

The site is zoned T6-36a-O, allowing for up to 56 residential units and 112 hotel rooms, according to a release from the listing broker, Fabio Faerman of Fortune International Realty/FA Commercial Advisors.

Under current zoning, the corner lot could be developed into a 36-story tower, or rise up to 47 stories with bonuses.

Records show it last sold for $4.5 million in 2015, meaning it traded at a 16 percent gain. Bernadette Despujols said her family’s firm did not receive a lot of interest from potential buyers.

Laukien sold his 9,310-square-foot home at 19307 North Riverside Drive for about $550 per square foot. His company designs tools for software developers.

Rob Thomson of Waterfront Properties and Club Communities brokered the deal. The six-bedroom, six-bathroom home hit the market in March for $6 million, which means it sold at a 15 percent discount off its original selling price. It was re-listed in September for $5.5 million, according to Redfin. Thomson was not immediately available to comment.

Exclusive communities in Jupiter have long attracted celebrities and business executives like basketball legend Michael Jordan, tennis stars Serena and Venus Williams, and Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Céline Dion.

In 2014, Laukien paid $14.3 million for a bayfront Hibiscus Island home in Miami Beach.
