Waterfront property in North Bay Road in Miami Beach selling like water

North Bay Road is “the most in demand waterfront community in Miami Beach right now. A number of high-priced sales have closed in recent months, setting new records for the neighborhood. That is probably fueled by the recent interest of millionaires and billionaires from the North and the West in business in Miami.

In November, Gabe Plotkin, the founder of investment management firm Melvin Capital Management and a major short-seller of GameStop (Yes, let’s talk about that!) paid $44 million for the waterfront homes with docks at 6360 and 6342 North Bay Road, where he’s planning an expansion with a tennis court.

Plotkin’s Melvin Capital Management began suffering serious losses this month after being targeted by members of Reddit’s Wall Street Bets community. They managed to drive up Gamestop’s market cap by billions after noticing Melvin’s short position in the company.

It isn’t clear exactly how much Plotkin’s firm lost, but the firm got a $2.75 billion bailout from Citadel and Point72, two other hedge funds.
