Jason Halpern is the head of the New York real estate development firm JMH Development; he assumed the position from the company founder, his father in 2010. The company already recognized as one of the leading real estate developers in the New York area and under Jason’s leadership that legacy has continued to grow. While both Jason and his father have followed the somewhat traditional path of real estate development, meaning they build living spaces, as well as office and retail units, Jason does one thing a little differently. Jason likes to restore once forgotten buildings that have historical value into modern luxury living spaces.
There are several good examples of what Jason has accomplished with his unique approach to site selection, but perhaps the best known is 184 Kent in Brooklyn, New York. This property built in 1913 and at one time was the site of the world’s largest market. Long forgotten, Jason and JMH Development, renovated this old warehouse into one of the must desirable living spaces in Brooklyn. 184 Kent has 340 luxury units, with amenities designed for luxury living including a concierge service, door attendant, fitness center, on-site shopping, and a picnic area to mention only a few. Jason is particularly proud of this project as it is now on the National Register of Historic Places.
JHM focused on developing properties that offer the finest in luxury living; they are currently working on units priced for well over $1 million. Three Hundred Collins, located in Miami Beach, is an example of this kind of project. Some units will be 3,700 square feet, have 18-foot ceilings, wide-plank white oak floors, marble bathrooms and kitchens to mention only some of the highlights. These units listed for around $9 million and buyers will experience the finest in luxury living. JMH Development is expert in all phases of development, starting with due diligence and strategy, site selection, design, construction and property management.
Like his father, Jason is an auto racing enthusiast, NASCAR in particular. While his father once sponsored a car in the series, Jason has tried his hand as a driver and would like to return in that capacity one day. Jason also loves football, the New York Giants in particular, and often travel to out of town games with his son.
