Jason Halpern is JMH Development’s founder and managing partner. The third generation of his family to be involved in real estate development, he draws on his family’s more than 50 years of experience and stellar track record building, developing and managing residential and commercial properties in New York.
His experience, vision, foresight and unique development expertise has led Jason Halpern to acquire and develop numerous historically significant landmarked buildings and make them more esthetically pleasing and commercially viable using innovative, pioneering techniques.
There are a number of things which set Jason Halpern apart from other real estate developers. They include his passion for the niche of doing development projects in historic communities and his ability to develop a rapport with the stakeholders in the communities in which he works. Plus Jason Halpern cares about the historic aspects of those properties and communities and is guided by the principle that he has to respect the communities in which he does his development activities. As a result, he is able to count on community support and admiration for the high-quality development projects he does.
Since taking over JHM Development in 2010, Jason Halpern has done some amazing development projects in New York. They include transforming a former warehouse at 184 Kent into 340 luxury apartments and adding to the valuable housing stock in greater Brooklyn with the construction of 9 luxury townhouses in a project called the Townhouses of Cobble Hill. He has also signaled his commitment to add innovative new commercial business space and rental property to the more than $500 million the company has invested in real estate development throughout New York state.
But the real estate development work with which Jason Halpern and JMH Development is involved is not limited to New York. Not long ago he and the company completed the development of the 235-room, 8 story hotel in Miami Beach called the Aloft South Beach. The redevelopment project adaptively reused the Motel Ankara, a historic Miami hotel. The Aloft South Beach has the distinction of being South Beach’s first newly constructed hotel that has opened since 2009.
