George Lindemann is an investor and philanthropist committed to helping the communities wherever he does business. In 1998, he identified Biscayne Boulevard, a much-depressed area of Miami at the time, as a primary focus for his commercial real estate investments. His re-development of more than 500,000 square feet of commercial real estate helped to redefine the “Biscayne Corridor” into what it is today, a springboard for economic development and state-of-the-art high rises.
In 2007, he co-founded Lake Point Holdings, LLC, a mining operation and Everglades restoration project in Central Florida. Lake Point Restoration provides raw materials for roads, infrastructure and construction sites as well as levee, seawall, canal and conservation projects. Its ultimate goal is to create a 2,400-acre water treatment facility.
In 2012, operations were expanded to the multifamily industry. In a short four-year-span the multifamily portfolio grew to a total of 14 multifamily properties encompassing 5,822 units. These properties have been upgraded with upscale features and sophisticated amenities designed to raise the standard of apartment living. The properties maintain a robust occupancy level and rent roll, as well as significant year-to-year increases in NOI.
Mr. Lindemann’s commitment to practical environmentalism led him to purchase ten thousand acres of land in Eastern Tennessee. This land was used for the purpose of timbering, farming, parceling and subdividing acreage for sale to individual home buyers. Soak Creek, which runs along the edge of some of his Tennessee farms, was listed as a favorite backcountry paddling route. An avid paddler himself, he organized, funded and led a coalition to secure a unanimous approval designating this creek as a Tennessee State Scenic River – the first new designation in 15 years. He then donated over 900 acres of land to the State of Tennessee to permanently protect Soak Creek. In 2017, Mr. Lindemann was named “Conservationist of the Year” by the Tennessee Wildlife Federation. Read more here.

He has also served as Vice President of the Miami Art Museum and Vice-Chair to the Miami Dade Performing Arts Center Foundation. Other community activities include serving as Honorary Editorial Board Member of The Miami Herald Editorial Board and Member of the Board of The Cushman School. Mr. Lindemann has a BA from Brown University and an MBA from Nova Southeastern University.
