Building is in the Halpern Family’s blood, three generations with a passion for creating luxury living spaces and commercial developments across New York have built JMH Development into the leader of historic district development. Leading that vision and legacy is now Principal Jason Halpern who has quickly expanded JMH’s reach with new properties now lining the East Coast.
Whether it is the sunny beaches of Miami or the storied district of Williamsburg, Jason Halpern has utilized a keen eye for restoring value to old historic buildings to add millions in revenue to JMH Development.
Most notably of his recent acquisitions and projects, 184 Kent in Brooklyn has seen a complete revival under JMH Development. The historic building has garnered praise among the development community and was even awarded the 2011 Building Brooklyn Award in the adaptive reuse category. The once warehouse along the East River was transformed into 340 luxury apartments bringing new opportunities for businesses and residents wishing to live in the burgeoning neighborhood.
This commitment to restoring often overlooked properties within New York and a respect for the surrounding communities have fostered a new era of growth for JMH Development under the leadership of Jason Halpern. Projects like the completed Aloft South Beach Hotel and the Cobble Hill Townhouse development illustrate the company’s potential to continue revitalizing neighborhoods.
The man behind the success, Jason Halpern, does not shy away from giving back to the communities that have helped his company grow and is an avid philanthropist. Mr. Halpern leads his company in innovative charity initiatives, the most ambitious being a program to provide funds for securing clean water for at risks communities in Ethiopia and Nepal.
Even today Jason Halpern remains dedicated to helping all those around him as he continues to push his company and family legacy further into the future.
