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.
Onward to Curbed National for more on Weinstein's contributions to 1111 and the convention center teams. >>
