Andrew “Avi” Greenbaum OWNER/PRINCIPAL
Andrew “Avi” Greenbaum is the CEO of Triple Double Real Estate and is a twenty-year veteran in the real estate industry. In the late 1990’s, Andrew was an independent director for Northstar, the owners of Ian Schrager hotels and Morgan’s hotel Group. Under the Hudson Capital umbrella, he teamed with Morgan’s and Crescent Heights to work on the Miami Mondrian hotel and condominiums. He followed up these hospitality projects by purchasing three small motels in Lake Worth, Florida and converting them all to workforce housing. The Eastgate motel, in Kissimmee, FL followed, with a 402-unit conversion from motel to workforce housing. Mr. Greenbaum then purchased and renovated the famed Sunday House hotel, in Delray Beach, FL, a boutique hotel, wedding venue and botanic garden directly in the heart of downtown Delray. Mr. Greenbaum, recognizing the largest housing problem in America is the workforce housing shortage, followed up with the purchase of 210 units in San Antonio to serve this purpose. Andrew increased his San Antonio portfolio, purchasing the 113-unit Red Roof Inn for conversion. Not looking to slow down, Andrew is already under contract for the 400-unit Banyan Hotel, Orlando, FL, which he plans on converting to workforce housing, while building relevant street front retail.
Andrew and team bring forth the strategies they have employed over nearly two decades of development and management. Specializing in medical and commercial office, as well as hotel to residential conversion projects, Andrew and his team have been adding value to projects through multiple avenues, including adaptive re-use, lease-up and renovation. Andrew has managed, bought and built over 4,000 residential units and over 9 million square feet of commercial space. Andrew brings his vision and expertise on acquisition, management, development, corporate operations and finance.

Hudson Capital was a mixed-use developer encompassing residential and commercial rental properties, ground up construction and condominium conversions. Hudson Capital developed over $1 billion of commercial property. At Hudson Capital, Andrew focused on acquisitions, finance and operational functions. He worked closely with institutions, brokers and individual property owners in search of value-add propositions.
