Michael Mincberg is originally from Washington, DC.  He came to Tampa in 2002 to attend the University of South Florida.  As a student at USF, he obtained his real estate sales license and he just started holding open houses.  He then became interested in development.  He was 19 years old when he started in sales and marketing for residential new construction and quickly moved on to bigger projects.  In 2012, he founded Sight Real Estate and Development.  

“Real estate development is half art and half science,” Mincberg says.  “People want to live and work in an area that has culture and a good vibe.”   “If you get the art part right then the math, or the science, adds up very quickly because you have created a unique product.”

Michael looks for  a neighborhood that inspires himself and others.  An area of positive energy filled with art, businesses, theaters, cafes, and coffee shops.  A positive energy in the area is what brought him to the Warehouse Arts District.  Michael joined the Warehouse Arts District Association after purchasing the old Puckett Store Fixtures building at 2430 5th Ave. South, in the Warehouse Arts District, turning the four industrial buildings with 50,000 sq feet into Seaboard Crossing, a flexible use workspace.  Mincberg says that he is cognizant of the developers important role of preserving the character and vibe of an area such as the Warehouse Arts District and that is why he is taking his time on “getting it just right” for the aesthetic of the property.  “There’s a balance to be had in how to keep that neighborhood cool while also protecting it,” he says.  “There is still a lot of work to do, but I am proud to own and be a part of WADA.”
