Tony Goldman to Be Remembered In South Beach Funeral Service Today
|Real estate visionary Tony Goldman.|
Tony Goldman, the Miami restaurateur, entrepreneur, and real estate visionary who passed away Tuesday, will be remembered at Temple Emanu-El of Greater Miami in a funeral service today at noon.
Goldman's work in real estate forever changed the course of Miami's development. He saw Wynwood's potential to become a thriving arts community and encouraged artists to create works and galleries there, working with local government to make the district more visitor-friendly. Goldman also helped transform South Beach from a sleepy retirement community into an Art Deco hotspot.
A notice of this afternoon's service reads, "He was a transformational, once in a lifetime figure, who will be remembered as what a man at his best can become."
The service begins at noon and attendees are asked to arrive promptly. Temple Emanu-El of Greater Miami, The South Beach Synagogue, is located at 1701 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. Call 305-538-2503.
