Greenberg Traurig Shareholder David M Layman Represents Buyer in Purchase of Worth Avenue Property Via Bice

MIAMI – April 5, 2017 – Greenberg Traurig, P.A. Real Estate Shareholder David M. Layman represented the buyer in the $19.5 million purchase of the historic Via Bice located on Palm Beach’s Worth Avenue. The purchase of the property, which comprises 18,712 square feet of retail and second level office space in five buildings, closed March 24, 2017.

The buyer is Via Bice Worth Avenue, LLC, an entity affiliated with the Amirsaleh Family Trust. The family investment group, which has offices at 90 Via Mizner, is also the owner of Via Mizner and various other trophy retail and restaurant properties. The trust plans to modernize and renovate Via Bice using the talents of Palm Beach-based designers and architects.

The seller was Via 313-1/2 Worth Avenue, Ltd., which is affiliated with Tricony Management. Via Bice has two addresses: 313 1/2 Worth Avenue and 320 Peruvian Avenue.

“At nearly $1,004 per square foot, the sale price shows the continuing desirability of Worth Avenue as one of the premier retail streets in the country and one where investors see tremendous opportunity,” said Layman, a member of international law firm Greenberg Traurig’s Real Estate Practice in the firm’s West Palm Beach office.

Worth Avenue, which is considered to be one of the most expensive retail streets in the nation, is home to such stores as Cartier, Tiffany & Co., Chanel, Gucci, Graff Diamonds, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, and Salvatore Ferragamo. BiCE Ristorante is located within Via Bice.
