Russell Galbut

CATEGORY: Originators
COMPANY: Crescent Heights
INDUSTRY: Real Estate

WHAT MAKES HIM HAUTE: As vice president of the industrious and fruitful Crescent Heights, Galbut helped revive residential properties in South Beach with one-of-a-kind construction. It’s a fitting endeavor for him, as his family roots are deeply planted in Miami Beach. In 1935, his grandfather opened a drugstore/diner on 5th Street, and, together, his extended family (which today includes Haute 100 member, Keith Menin, Galbut’s nephew) was at one point the largest landowner on the Beach. Today, Crescent Heights is the nation’s largest residential condominium company with properties across Miami, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and many other cities.
