Jason Halpern, the founder of JMH Development, has been keeping busy in Miami’s South Beach area. His latest project there, Aloft at South Beach is slated to become one of the area’s top residences. The excitement surrounding this project has a lot to do with the fact that Aloft is constructed around the historic Motel Ankara through a creative reuse plan. The project also includes a newly built eight-story tower.
Madden Real Estate Ventures in JMH’s partner in the financial development, while the construction work was helmed by Plaza Construction with ADD, Inc. as architects. The Aloft brand is part of the Starwood family of hotel properties, and is known for its appeal to younger travelers that are looking for a fresh and new hotel experience.
Through his firm JHM Development, Jason has gained a reputation as a real estate developer that works extensively with the preservation and reuse of historic buildings. This track record has enabled JMH to receive approvals relating to historic structures that are important to their community’s culture to remain intact.
The Halpern family is well known in real estate development circles, and Jason represents the third generation to be active in this field. In addition to his work in historic districts, Jason is very active in philanthropy and is not afraid to mix his efforts with his business endeavors. His charity, water, has worked to bring clean and potable water to residents of Ethiopia and Nepal. As part of his business ethos, Halpern donates $20,000 from every signed contract to this charitable foundation.
Jason also lends his time to the Trauma Center at Westchester Medical Center. Not only does he donate money, but he also invests his time in helping those around him. Jason Halpern is committed to making a lasting and positive difference in the world, and is always looking for new and effective ways to help others.
Working chiefly in Miami, Jason is constantly on the look out for new projects that will excite and inspire him, and hopefully those around him as well. JMH continues to be a firm to watch in Miami.
