The lender is Bank of America. The property is owned by RK Centers, a landlord based in Needham, Massachusetts.

The company didn’t respond to requests for comment. RK Centers is named for founder Raanan Katz, a former member of Israel’s men’s national basketball team and a longtime limited partner in the Miami Heat.

The company owns two dozen retail properties in South Florida, including a Publix plaza in Hallandale Beach and a Best Buy store in West Palm Beach.
