Shareef Malnik, owner of Miami Beach’s popular restaurant The Forge, has hired Douglas Elliman to market his stylish pad on Ocean Drive that’s hopped on and off the market for several years. Until last week, Dora Puig of Luxe Living Realty had the listing for 222 Ocean Drive, which had been on the market under her firm for roughly 10 months. Puig did not return repeated requests for comment.
The listing now belongs to John Sandberg and Ann Nortmann of Douglas Elliman, who are advertising the 7, 707-square-foot home at $14.995 million — the same price as Puig’s listing. “[Malnik] had it on the market many different times in many different ways, and it just didn’t work out, ” Sandberg told The Real Deal. Zillow shows it’s been up for sale and rent multiple times since 2009, with prices ranging from $7.9 million to the current high of nearly $15 million.
