A trust belonging to Matthew Whitman Lazenby , president and CEO of Bal Harbour Shops owner Whitman Family Development, paid $17.3 million for an oceanfront mansion in Miami Beach.

Farid Suleman , the former chairman and CEO of Las Vegas radio company Citadel Broadcasting, and wife Jennifer Suleman sold the 6,342-square-foot home at 7825 Atlantic Way to the 7825 Atlantic Way Trust, which belongs to Whitman Lazenby, according to a source familiar with the deal. Northern Trust Co. provided a $11.25 million mortgage to the buyer.

The seller was represented by Julian Johnston of the Corcoran Group while Ben Moss of Compass worked with the buyer. The price equated to $2,728 per square foot.

The Sulemans built the home on the 16,000-square-foot lot in 2015. The property lines goes up to the sand dunes leading to the beach.

The home has eight bedrooms, 8.5 bathrooms, an elevator, an office, a fountain, a large terrace, a roof deck, a summer kitchen, and an infinity pool.

Whitman Lazenby is the fourth-generation leader of Whitman Family Development, which owns the Bal Harbour Shops. The company helped develop the retail space at Brickell City Centre.
