Curbed Young Guns, now in its first year, aims to identify promising up-and-coming talent (35 and under) in the fields of architecture, interior design, and urban development. For the next few weeks, Curbed National will run individual stories on each Young Gun; here's a look at a member of the Class of 2013 based in Miami:
Jeff Weinstein, 31, doesn't have hundreds of projects under his belt. He doesn't have dozens of them, in fact. Though he graduated from the University of Pennsylvania almost a decade ago, the Philadelphia native has spent the better part of his post-college life working for the Miami Beach-based UIA Management under the tutelage of white-hot developer—or as we've described him before, "uber cool local 'indie' developer"—Robert Wennett. And he's focused all of his time thus far on two enormous, balls-to-the-walls, soup-to-nuts projects - 1111 Lincoln Road and the Miami Beach Convention Center - that have, or will, change the fundamental urban makeup of Miami Beach and revitalize an underutilized area of the city.
