Jason Halpern owns and manages JHM Development. As a third-generation real estate professional, his family has a fantastic track record of over 50 years of building and managing properties in the New York area.
Hundreds of apartments in New York have been built by the Halpern family, and they have also developed several million square feet of premium commercial space.
What separates Halpern from other real estate professionals is his passion for building in niche, historic districts. His motto, “Respecting the community in which you develop” guides his work and the efforts of JHM Development.
He has also heavily invested himself in philanthropic efforts, including the Joel A. Halpern Trauma Center and donating clean water to Ethiopia and Nepal.
One of Halpern’s major projects was in 2014 in Miami Beach. Jason Halpern’s JMH Development announced the topping off of the famous Aloft South Beach in Miami, Florida. Located in the heart of Miami Beach, the hotel featured 235 rooms and opened in 2015.
The project was led by JMH Development. The project significantly adds to the size of the rooms in each hotel suite, which were expanded to 360 square feet.
Aloft South Beach offers a premium waterfront location with access to local hotspots such as the Collins Canal, Lake Pancoast, and located just one block from the shoreline.
The aloft hotel features a plethora of amenities, including an outdoor pool, a deck lounge on the roof, a fitness center open around the clock and a 2,300 square feet meeting space designed for business meetings and special events.
Starwood Aloft has over 100 hotels currently open in 14 countries. It appeals to the modern traveler who is “always on”—that is, always checking work email, attending meetings remotely, answering business calls at 10 p.m. The Aloft bran offers a tech-focused, modern, vibrant experience to travelers who have different needs from, say, a college professor on summer vacation.
