Billionaire Behind Rockstar Energy Drink Selling Florida Homes for $71.5 Million

Russell Weiner, the billionaire creator of Rockstar Energy Drink, is looking to cash in on two of his Florida homes to the tune of $71.5 million.

Mr. Weiner wants to sell a home in Miami Beach for $35 million and a home in Delray Beach for $36.5 million, according to the agents preparing to list the homes. The properties are among a collection of homes accumulated by Mr. Weiner, 49, over the past decade as he’s turned his hand to real-estate investing in Florida and California following the success of his drinks company, the agents said.

Mr. Weiner bought the Miami Beach home, a modern estate with Balinese influences, for around $20 million in 2016. Sitting on more than an acre with a private dock on Biscayne Bay, the property is over 9,000 square feet with six bedrooms, a wine cellar, a rooftop terrace, a pool and a Jacuzzi. The dock can accommodate a yacht of up to 150 feet and comes with boat and jet ski lifts.

Listing agent Brett Harris of Douglas Elliman said Mr. Weiner had done significant work to the home, adding new audio systems and landscape lighting and improving the dock. He also added the Jacuzzi and a catering kitchen, Mr. Harris said.
The second home, an oceanfront estate about an hour north on Delray Beach, has tropical landscaped grounds, a tennis court, a 12-car garage and a pool with a waterslide and a spa, according to listing agent Candace Friis of the Corcoran Group. The property has six bedrooms. Mr. Weiner bought it for $11.6 million in 2009, records show. Ms. Friis said he upgraded it, adding smart home features.

The entrepreneur listed a redone Beverly Hills home for $45 million in 2017, only to later reduce the price to about $36 million. He took the property off the market last year.

Mr. Weiner launched Rockstar in the early 2000s. The company stood out in the market with servings twice the size of Red Bull’s 8-ounce can. He could not be reached for comment.
