Jason Halpern and His Real Estate Empire

With a clear vision of what he wanted to accomplish in the real estate market, Jason Halpern founded his company in New York City in the year 2000. Since that time, JMH Development Company has quickly built a reputation of high quality standards and innovative features in all aspects of the large ventures that have been undertaken. He has created a staff that is well trained in the many different aspects of commercial and residential development, and the sleek modern décor of hotel lobbies is attractive to a new generation. Some of the renovated buildings were on the prized historical list of preservation, which is of interest to Halpern, and that, too, is attractive to the public. Their location has provided scenic and commercial rewards that simply “came with the territory.” The end result, with top designers, contractors, and visionaries working together, have created luxurious locations. Buyers with deep investment pockets have been found in New York City and Miami, Florida.and the company is well established.


One of Jason Halpern’s first projects in New York City was converting a Brooklyn waterfront warehouse into 230 luxury apartments. The building was built in 1913 and housed one of the largest grocers in USA. Its restoration put it on the National Registry of Historic Places. It remains on the luxury rental register for this prized area and features a large courtyard and well equipped gym overlooking the East River. Restaurants and shopping areas are nearby and stunning views of Manhattan are featured. In 2011, it received the building Brooklyn Award in the adaptive reuse category.


This Williamsburg project set the trend of the development company, but New York City was not to remain its only place of business. In 2014 a large news conference was held for Jason Halpern to announce the topping off of a hotel at Aloft South Beach in Florida. This was the original historic Motel Ankara but new construction will offer large hotel rooms and an eight story addition.


When finished it will be the Aloft South Beach Hotel of the Starwards Aloft Brand, which is becoming known for its unique design attracting the young modern traveler. Its location is near Lake Pancoast and minutes from Miami Beach Convention Center, the Bass Museum of Art, and many restaurants and night clubs. It will have an outdoor pool, a good group of flexible meeting rooms, a 24 hour fitness center, and a rooftop lounge. The industry’s richest loyalty program will be offered.

Jason Halpern’s recognition of the value in restored business buildings and locations seems to serve well as a basis for high quality real estate growth. Mixing the old and the new offers great opportunity for creative development within the industry.
