A Family Legacy
Founded on the vision of Donald Soffer, Turnberry’s roots are firmly planted in family, innovation, and community. Half a century ago, Soffer acquired undeveloped swamp and marshland, transforming it into the iconic City of Aventura. Today, this city is renowned for landmarks like the JW Marriott Turnberry Resort & Spa and Aventura Mall. Turnberry’s impressive portfolio extends beyond South Florida, with projects that span from Nashville, Tennessee, to Paradise Island, Bahamas. The company’s reputation for excellence, creativity, and civic responsibility continues to thrive under the leadership of Jackie Soffer.
