The Real Deal: George Lindemann Jr. finishes his Sunset Islands contemporary home

Home replaced 1930s-era property that was half the size

By Sean Stewart-Muniz

George Lindemann Jr., board president for the Bass Museum of Art and scion of the famed Lindemann family, has just finished building a contemporary mansion in Miami Beach.

Acting through a trust in his name, Lindemann filed a notice of termination this week for construction work at his Sunset Islands home, signaling that the project had been completed.

The two-story contemporary measures 7,600 square feet and was designed by Shulman + Associates, an architecture firm known for its work on larger projects like the Soho Beach House and H&M’s flagship store on Lincoln Road.

Lindemann’s new pad has six bedrooms, six bathrooms, one half-bath and bay views from its 15,931-square-foot lot at 2300 Bay Avenue. Some of the home’s other features include floor-to-ceiling windows and a waterfront pool.

It’s also roughly double the size of a 1930s-era home that Lindemann demolished on the property in 2013, a year after his trust bought it for $6.4 million, according to county records. The demolished home was designed by noted architect Robert Law Weed, built for Atlanta residents Luther Marchant Davenport and Dorothy Barnes, who activist group Save Miami Beach Homes said shared ancestry with Abraham Lincoln.

Following the recent notice of termination, Lindemann also borrowed $14.7 million against the home from Bank of America. County records also show the Lindemann trust has a homestead exemption for the property, indicating it’s a primary residence.

George Lindemann Jr. is the son of billionaire George Lindemann, a serial entrepreneur that founded and sold a handful of businesses over the past half-century, most notably his Metro Mobile company that was acquired by Bell Atlantic — now known as Verizon — for $2.5 billion in 1991.

Lindemann’s newly built home is just one of many contemporary houses in Miami Beach that are gradually replacing older properties, most notably in hot neighborhoods like North Bay Road, Pine Tree Drive and Di Lido Island.
