Tony Goldman in Wynwood

Developer Tony Goldman, who helped engineer the renaissances of South Beach and New York’s SoHo, died yesterday at the age of 68 of heart failure, according to the Miami Herald. In recent years Goldman, a native of New York City, had been pushing Miami’s Wynwood area as the city’s next great neighborhood. “To the community he touched, he was a transforming, once-in-a-lifetime figure,” his family said in a statement. “To us, he was a devoted husband, wonderful father and doting grandfather.” [Miami Herald]
