Assouline & Berlowe Partner Alan Krinzman’s 35 Years of “Real” Estate Experience

Real EstateAlan Krinzman’s real estate experience can only be described as “extensive”.   From both the legal and practical side, Mr. Krinzman has been involved with every aspect of real estate ownership, improvement, leasing, management and investment.

Mr. Krinzman’s real estate experience began from the ground up in New Orleans, Louisiana, in 1979, when Mr. Krinzman personally renovated several residential  properties which he  then personally leased and managed for the partnerships he had formed to acquire and renovate these properties.

During this same time among other things, Mr. Krinzman oversaw the land assembly, revenue bond financing for and construction of the 154 room Maison St. Charles Hotel in the Lower Garden District area of New Orleans.

When Mr. Krinzman returned to his native Miami in 1986, Mr. Krinzman and his brother (also a fine Miami lawyer) purchased the twenty unit garden style apartment building which their father had built on Bay Harbor Island in 1958.  They then proceeded with an extensive renovation of the apartment interiors as well as the exterior, and as a result of these improvements were able to increase the rent roll dramatically. When  the Krinzman brothers eventually sold their  Bay Harbor Island building in 1994 they were able to exchange it for an Art Deco apartment building complex in a prime South Beach residential location very close to Lincoln Road which was on the corner of Michigan Avenue and 16th Street.  At that time, Mr. Krinzman again directed the extensive renovations and upgrades to the apartment interiors as well as all of the exteriors to the 4 buildings comprising this historic Miami Beach property.

In 1997, Mr. Krinzman sold this historic Miami Beach property to Andrea Greenwald, who converted it the apartments to the  Metropole Condominiums.  Mr. Krinzman and his brother then took the gains they received from this sale and purchased a four bay, 37,000 square foot warehouse at a cost $1.7 of million. The warehouse fronted I-95 and was centrally located just north of Cypress Creek, Fort Lauderdale west exit on I-95.  Mr. Krinzman again hired the contractors needed to make the necessary improvements to the warehouse and supervised these renovations.  Mr. Krinzman also personally managed and directed the leasing broker hired to lease this warehouse whenever a vacancy occurred.

By 2002, Mr. Krinzman decided that it was time to enter into the institutionally managed and leased industrial market and he partnered with investors  to purchase an 80,000 square foot multi-bay mixed use, flex space warehouse and office building  in Doral, Florida, for $5,000,000.  Mr. Krinzman engaged CBRE (Richard Ellis) to manage and lease the property, after Mr. Krinzman oversaw the extensive improvements done to the property costing approximately $600,000.

In 2003, Mr. Krinzman again partnered with investors to  purchase  an older three building, 80,000 square foot warehouse complex near the Pompano Harness Track and located on Racetrack Road in Pompano Beach, Florida, for $4,000,000. He again  used the same institutional approach for management and leasing of the complex through CBRE.  As in prior instances, Mr. Krinzman oversaw a similar $400,000  extensive improvement program that required Mr. Krinzman to contract for and supervise all facets of the improvements that we made to the 3 separate buildings comprising this complex.

In 2005, Mr. Krinzman and his brother sold the Cypress Creek warehouse and during that same year Mr. Krinzman and his co-investors investors also sold the larger warehouse complex on Racetrack Road.  Through the aggregation of these funds, Mr. Krinzman and his brother bought out their investors’  share in the Doral warehouse. Mr. Krinzman and his brother continued to own and operate this warehouse until the sold the building to Seagis at the beginning of 2013 for approximately $6.4 million.  During this same time period, Mr. Krinzman and his brother purchased and  improved a 13,600 square foot 3 bay warehouse near Aventura, Florida, which he personally managed and directed the leasing broker hired to lease this warehouse whenever a vacancy occurred. This Aventura warehouse was recently sold to Mario Groskopf.

While involved in this  investment oriented real estate ownership, improvement, leasing and management activity in Florida, in 2011, Mr. Krinzman also oversaw for a long time client Bigfoot Properties Inc. the $8,000,000 purchase of a 279,000 square foot, 16 acre, mixed use office warehouse complex in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Mr. Krinzman also oversaw the management company for this property as well as the $600,0000 renovation program that was undertaken during 2011 and 2012 to attract new tenants and re-lease the property.

In 2012 and again for his longtime client, Bigfoot Properties Inc. Mr. Krinzman handled the client’s $2.8 million purchase of a 55,000 square foot flex space office warehouse building located near the intersection of Sample Road and North Powerline Roads, in Broward County, Florida. A $500,000 value add improvement and leasing turnaround for this property ensued and this property has  just been listed for sale at its most recently assessed value of $4.5 million. Mr. Krinzman will of course represent the seller Bigfoot Properties in the sale of this property, which should take place in either the first or second quarter of 2014.

And, in addition to being admitted to the Florida Bar, Mr. Krinzman is also a member of  the Louisiana Bar, holds a Florida real estate sales license and is a LEED Accredited Professional. Whether sitting on the side of the buyer, seller, equity investor or mortgage lender, in the past thirty-five years, Mr. Krinzman has personally been involved in thousands of real estate transactions and is always looking for the opportunity to represent both his existing and new clients in their next deal.
