Jason Halpern is an experienced, visionary, real estate developer. The managing partner of JMH Development, his family has been involved in real estate development in New York for more than 50 years. They have a stellar record for building and managing commercial and residential properties throughout New York City and Westchester County. As the third generation of the Halpern family to be involved in real estate development, Jason Halpern has benefitted a great deal from the experience he has gained working with his relatives on millions of square feet of property development.
But Jason Halpern has a unique niche and skill set. He specializes in working on the acquisition and development of historically significant landmarked properties. It is something he is passionate about and he draws on his vision, unique development expertise and experience to do amazing work on those properties. Jason Halpern has also displayed a unique ability to quickly develop a rapport with the stakeholders and local residents in the communities in which he works. They seem to sense his respect for the properties and the communities in which they are located. This has helped to make him successful.
While previous generations of the Halpern family have focused their real estate development activities to New York, Jason Halpern is now involved in a number of projects in the Miami, Florida area. He recently helped to transform the historic Motel Ankara into an ultra-modern 235-room hotel overlooking Miami Beach called the Aloft South Beach. It was South Beach’s first newly constructed hotel since 2009. Jason Halpern has also completed a residential development in Miami called Three Hundred Collins.
In addition to being a real estate developer, Jason Halpern is also committed philanthropist. He has made significant donations to Westchester Medical Center’s Joel A. Halpern Trauma Center. The Level I Trauma Center has the staff, equipment and facilities to provide open-heart surgery, complex emergency neurosurgery and reattach severed limbs. The center also treats burn victims, children and pregnant women. Halpern also supports water projects in drought stricken areas in Ethiopia and Nepal through Splash and the Relief Society of Tigray.
