WHAT MAKES HIM HAUTE: A former taxi cab driver who made it big in the real estate industry, Edelstein’s golden investment is the Lincoln Road pedestrian mall, while his current portfolio includes two world-class buildings on New York’s Central Park West. This 2009 Haute Living Miami cover subject is the principal of Tristar Capital, which joined with developer Aby Rosen’s RFR to open the new W South Beach, which immediately became an epicenter of high-class action. The W South Beach, which opened in July 2009, is a manifestation of all of the characteristics of the current Miami Beach—it’s chic, sophisticated, buzzing, beachfront, and, perhaps most importantly, culturally relevant.
