“Creativity is a core component to the DNA of our company,” says Goldman Properties’ CEO, Jessica Goldman Srebnick, the civic-minded entrepreneur who took over the Miami real-estate firm of her late father, Tony Goldman, the developer and arts patron who launched the massive street art project Wynwood Walls. “I recognized just how meaningful it is to incorporate large-scale public art into our projects,” she says. “It’s not that it’s just good for business, it’s good for the soul.”
Subsequently, she has expanded the family’s holdings to include galleries as well as Goldman Global Arts, which helps match corporate clients with artists to create site-specific, large-scale installations, including the massive murals at Hard Rock Stadium, commissioned by developer and Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross after he visited Wynwood.
This year, Srebnick’s company celebrates the ten-year anniversary of Wynwood Walls and the recent opening of The Wynwood Garage, a sculptural 428-car garage with retail and office space that helped meet a neighborhood need but also created a beautiful landmark. Next up is a still-under-wraps real estate project in Texas to be announced this spring.
Srebnick is also a cochair of the committee for the Miami Super Bowl, in 2020, and plans to add more artistic elements to the big game. “Real estate is still the foundation of everything that we do,” she says, “but our philosophy is if you’re going to put new things into the world, put things that are more beautiful, more thought-provoking, and more hopeful.”
