SVN Commercial Partners Facilitates $5.5M Sale of Former Bru’s Room at 5460 W Hillsboro Blvd

The ROI Group of SVN Commercial Partners, led by Elon Gerberg, Adam H. Klein, and Cleveland Sainpreux, has successfully brokered the sale of the former Bru’s Room at 5460 W Hillsboro Blvd for $5.5 million ($416 per square foot). The property, located just east of the prominent intersection of N State Road 7 and W Hillsboro Blvd, was acquired by David Baldwin, the owner and operator of Kaluz Restaurant.

Klein and Gerberg navigated this highly competitive deal, highlighting the significant demand for prime restaurant locations in South Florida. “The sale underscores the significant interest from restaurant owners and operators looking to expand their presence in South Florida,” said Gerberg. “With limited options available, it was a fiercely competitive transaction. Kaluz Restaurant’s successful acquisition of another former Bru’s Room location in nearby Coral Springs provided confidence in their ability to close this deal.” Klein added.

Kaluz Restaurant, known for its modern American cuisine and sophisticated dining experience, plans to demolish the existing structure and construct a new restaurant on the nearly 2-acre site. This equates to a land value of $2.82 million.

This sale comes in the wake of Bru’s Room, a well-known sports bar chain with several locations across South Florida, announcing the closure of all its locations. The Hillsboro location was unique as it was part-owned by Bob Brudzinski, Bru’s Room’s owner/operator and former Miami Dolphins NFL player.

Tony Depierro of Depierro Group represented the buyer, David Baldwin, in this transaction.
