West Palm Beach-based Florida Crystals Corp. purchased the 1.89-acre Amazon Hose and Rubber site in the Channelside District a for $3.84 million.

The seller, Sarasota-based Finergy Development, purchased the property in 2006 with plans create a 22-story mixed-use development with 226 residential condominium units, 119 hotel units and about 50,000 square feet of retail.

“This is a great site in a very strong submarket,” Lance says in a press release. “While there are a number of projects planned or under development in this submarket, we feel the desire for millennials and empty nesters to relocate into urban infill areas, combined with the finish level and amenity packages offered in these new projects, is going to be a compelling enough story to fill them up.”
