Lin Arison: Heiress, Arts Patron, Philanthropist and now Bal Harbour Condo Collector?

With her fourth condo purchase in the past one year and sixth in two, the Bal Harbour Tower seems to have made quite the impression on socialite Lin Arison. The Carnival Cruises heiress made her latest addition in the month of April, by taking over auto deal Dave Zinn’s condo for a price tag of $2.4 million.
Now owning 6 out of the 116 condos in Bal Harbour Tower, making for a total of 3,500 square feet of space bought at a total of $12 million, one might wonder whether the decision is a smart investment move or one more personal in nature.
The Bal Harbour Tower is a spectacular oceanfront property with its very own gourmet restaurant, world-class spa, tennis court and poolside café; not to forget its proximity to exciting nightlife options, dining venues and the popular Bal Harbour Shops.
Collecting condos isn’t all that keeps Lin Arison busy, widow of the illustrious Carnival Cruise Line founder Ted Arison, she happens to be the co-founder of the National YoungArts Foundation as well as the New World Symphony. A leading advocate of arts education in Miami, she is also one of the prestigious recipients of the 2012 National Medal of Arts.
