Real estate developer Jason Halpern’s love of the business pointed him in the direction of launching JMH Development in 2010.
Taking command of the family’s more than fifty years in the business Halpern, who grew up going to see New York construction sites accompanying his father, now carries on the family tradition with his son.
The Halpern family has constructed hundreds of residential apartments in Westchester County and New York City as well as in Florida. The focal point of the firm’s thinking centers on adaptive reuse projects and historic properties restorations.
At the present time, JMH Development is reported to have $500 million invested in New York state projects. The firm completed a major renovation of 184 Kent Avenue which brought about 340 residential rentals in Brooklyn as well as nine luxury townhouses in Brooklyn’s Cobble Hill district.
What’s more, JHM Development also worked on a 172 high end town homes community in Queens and repurposing the Brooklyn Heights Cinema to build luxury condominiums.
In September, 2016 JHM sold the Aloft South Beach in Miami for $105 million. The project was a redevelopment of the historic Motel Ankara. And according to the Department of Buildings, JHM Development recently filed plans for a 289-key hotel in Long Island City.
Halpern commented in a statement that showing consideration for the community where you build is an important value for him. He said he is captivated by expansions which have distinctive structural designs.
He also values charitable activities such as raising funds for the Westchester Medical Center’s Joel A. Halpern Trauma Center and building houses for Habitat for Humanity.
Following in his grandfather’s and father’s footsteps, Halpern is a devoted father to his son who also enjoys accompanying his father to work.
