A Chicago marine executive closed on his $13.3 million penthouse in Brickell.

Jake Vogel, president of Polaris Boats, bought upper penthouse 6201 at Brickell Flatiron. The 64-story, 527-unit condo tower at 1000 Brickell Plaza was completed late last year. Ugo Colombo’s CMC Group developed the skyscraper.

Vogel plans to use the Miami condo as his second home, according to Cervera Real Estate. Karen Elmir of Cervera’s The Elmir Group represented Vogel along with Brett Firestone of Florida Capital Realty. Adriana Brito of Fortune Development Sales represented the developer.

The deal sets a record for condo sales in Brickell since 2007, the developer said. The all-time record is held by the $13.9 million sale of a five-bedroom unit at The Bristol Tower, another CMC project in Brickell.

The six-bedroom, 7,850-square-foot penthouse has six-and-a-half bathrooms, a den, family room, office and a rooftop deck with a pool, summer kitchen and changing rooms. The unit has ceilings of more than 20 feet tall and elevator access to all three levels.

The price breaks down to $1,694 per square foot.

In December, CMC Group paid off its $236 million construction loan for Brickell Flatiron. Colombo’s next project is likely Onda, an eight-story condo development he’s planning to build in Bay Harbor Islands with Valerio Morabito.

Architect Luis Revuelta designed the Brickell tower, and Massimo Iosa Ghini designed the interiors. The building features a 64th-floor amenities rooftop with a spa, pool and gym, a lap pool and children’s pool on the 18th floor, movie theater, billiards and cigar room, wine cellar, and electric car charging stations.

A London-based Japanese restaurant concept is expected to open in the ground-floor retail space. CMC sold 24,800 square feet of the ground floor and mezzanine level space to Avi Dishi and Haim Yehezkel for $22.5 million. The buyers, who closed on the space last year, are still pursuing a lawsuit against CMC that alleges the developer changed the design of the commercial space.
