James F. Goldstein (born January 5, 1940) is an American real estate developer who has a net worth of over $100 million. His passions are fashion, architecture and NBA basketball.
Goldstein’s Beverly Hills house, known as Sheats Goldstein Residence, has been featured in Architectural Digest, DOLCE magazine, The New York Times, Robb Report, Town & Country, and more. The house was designed in 1963 by John Lautner, a student of Frank Lloyd Wright. Goldstein purchased the property in the 1970s and commissioned Lautner to make changes and improvements to the house. Below the main residence is an installation by light artist James Turrell known as “Skyspace” or “Sky Box”. The property next door to his also had a Lautner-designed house on it, which Goldstein bought and tore down to build a nightclub party house, tennis court and office.
In 2016, Goldstein promised that the house eventually will become the property of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The residence has also been featured in a number of movies, including Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, French Exit, and The Big Lebowski.
