Dubai-Based DAMAC Properties Closes On $120 Million Surfside Site Of Collapsed Condo, To Build Cavalli-Branded Condo — PROFILE Miami

The Dubai-based DAMAC Properties, who was revealed as the she stalking horse bidder for the site of the former Champlain Towers South in Surfside, Florida which tragically collapsed in June 2021, has closed on the site for $120 million. DAMAC Properties, led by billionaire developer Hussain Sajwani, is planning to develop a Cavalli branded condo project on the site.

The developer agreed to a $120 million bid for the oceanfront property located at 8777 Collins Ave. via one of their US entities, East Oceanside Development, LLC. in September 2021. Court-appointed trustee Michael Goldberg issued the deed for the site at 8777 Collins Avenue which spans ±1.88 acres or ±81,886 square feet. The proceeds from the sale will go toward the $96 million settlement for the Champlain Towers South unit owners who lost their home in the tragic collapse.

The Cavallli Surfside condo will be DAMAC Properties’ first project in the United States. Sajwani’s private equity firm Vision Investments purchased the Cavalli luxury fashion brand in 2019. DAMAC Properties launched a 70-story Cavalli Tower in Dubai in 2021.

Honorable Judge Michael A. Hanzman and the court appointed receiver Michael Goldberg tabbed Avison Young, led by Michael T. Fay, to market the property in late-August 2021. Avison Young’s Michael T. Fay and his team John K. Crotty, David Duckworth, Brian C. de la Fé, and Berkley K. Bloodworth oversaw the sale, pro bono.
