Galbut and Liebowitz Add New Ownership Partner For Baia Beach Club and Mondrian South Beach:

Perry Weitz takes equal, one-third share

Litigator Perry Weitz has taken a one-third stake in the Baia Beach Club and Mondrian South Beach, joining Russell Galbut and Michael Liebowitz as an equal partner. The hotel and membership club is located at 1100 West Avenue in Miami Beach overlooking Biscayne Bay.

According to the announcement, Weitz acquired a 33% ownership stake for an undisclosed amount. Liebowitz joined Galbut as a partner in December 2019 and a year later the pair unveiled the new waterfront Baia Beach Club within the 220-room hotel which was also recently renovated.

Liebowitz is CEO and founder of Harbor Group Consulting. Galbut is co-founder and managing principal of Crescent Heights. 

Weitz, co-founding member of personal injury litigation law firm Weitz & Luxenberg PC, is one of the recent transplants here. "When the opportunity presented itself to join Michael and Russell at Mondrian South Beach, a prime bayfront property, it was the perfect opportunity at the right time," noted Weitz. "Having spent the winters in Miami from NY, I decided to permanently relocate and devote much of my time to Mondrian South Beach. I'm passionate about elevating the guest experience and I look forward to being a part of this next wave of unique hospitality offerings and vibrant, city-wide economic expansion."

The partners will now turn to “enhancing the lobby space with nano walls creating additional indoor/outdoor spaces and expanding the marina allowing for additional guests to dock and dine,” according to the announcement.

The hotel, designed by Peter Oleck and Danny Cubes of OS Design Group, boasts direct marina access, private cabanas, spa, dining options, and 25,000 sq ft of flexible meeting space.
