Jason Halpern is an innovative real estate developer with a love for developing buildings of historic importance. The third generation of the Halpern family to become involved in real estate development, he has controlled JMH Development, the family business, since 2010. He has done a number of lucrative real estate acquisition and development projects that helped to increase the company’s New York real estate holdings to over $500 million. He’s also done some groundbreaking development projects in South Florida and made significant contributions to help the sick and suffering worldwide.
In the greater Brooklyn area, Jason Halpern and JMH Development were responsible for doing some excellent work with residential properties. They were able to turn an abandoned warehouse from a dangerous eyesore into 340 beautiful luxury apartments. The company also created 9 luxurious, upscale townhouses as part of a project known as the Townhouses of Cobble Hill. He has also been involved in a number of other innovative projects involving commercial and residential properties. It’s a skillset he learned from his family and has built on through working with his relatives developing properties all over New York.
One of the projects Jason Halpern did in the Miami area was turning the historic beach-front property, Motel Ankara, into the fantastic new luxury hotel Aloft South Beach. It’s the first newly constructed hotel since 2009 to be opened in South Beach. He also handled the Miami area residential development Three Hundred Collins. The innovative, visionary work Jason Halpern did on those properties offer just a hint of his prodigious talent and deep understanding of real estate development. But he comes by it honestly. The Halpern family has been involved in real estate development for 50 years.
