A group led by Miami-based real estate investor Ramon Llorens bought the 1.48-acre Downtown parking lot by the Omni Jacksonville Hotel, adding to his North Florida holdings.

It is across the street from the Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts.

Llorens, through Amkin Terra LLC, paid $6.83 million for the 317 Water St. property in a sale executed June 29 and recorded Monday with the Duval County Clerk of Courts.

He bought it from OP Terra Owner LLC, in care of New York-based Och-Ziff Real Estate. OP Terra bought it for $6.4 million in April 2015.

The acquisition is one of many made by Llorens in recent years.

In December, a group led by Llorens purchased the Greyhound bus station at 10 N. Pearl St., across the street from the TIAA Bank Center, which he also owns.

AK Pearl LLC paid Greyhound Lines Inc. $2.78 million for the 1.21-acre site. The station moved to a new location.

In 2015 and 2016, Llorens bought 250 acres along New Berlin Road through Dames Point LLC.

Since September 2014, through ownership groups, he bought the TIAA Bank Center, property in the Talleyrand area that includes the former Ford Motor Co. plant, the New Berlin Road property, Southbank riverfront commercial buildings, a Downtown parking garage at 336 W. Bay St., and a 2.78-acre parking lot at Hogan and West Bay streets near that parking garage.
