As principal of JMH Development, Halpern is a real estate developer who took control of JMH Development in 2010. It was a family run business. The company is currently invested in New York state projects to the tune of $500 million. They have turned warehouses into luxury apartments.

In Brooklyn, N.Y., Halpern and company have developed a project called Townhouses of Cobble Hill, which added nine luxury townhouses to the area.

Creating new and modernized buildings for commercial and rental properties is part of Halpern’s mission. For example, serving as Director of Parametric Dining for the 2015 Aloft South Beach construction, Halpern and Madden Real Estate Ventures reused the historic Ankara motel to build an eight story tower. Plaza Construction handled the construction.

What does Aloft Beach offer to Miami? For one, it is the first newly constructed hotel to be built in South Beach since 2009. Secondly, it offers larger rooms with averages of 360 square feet. Compared to its competitors, Aloft South Beach beats them all.

Halperin was excited to top off Aloft South Beach. He said that JMH Development has a track record of restoring historic structures. Topping off the building to Halpern signified a major milestone in the construction process. It also signaled the next phase of the project.

What will Aloft South beach have with its prime waterfront location? That would include access to Collins Canal and Pancoast Lake – both of which – surround the property. Just minutes away from the Miami Beach Convention Center, this new Halpern property is right in the middle of South Beach, near art galleries, restaurants, boutiques, Bass Museum of Art and a thriving night life.

Halpern and his JMH Development company is a full services real estate company. Company experience includes development and ownership of major commercial and residential properties. Halpern and his team take an innovative approach to re-envisioning historic properties and making the distinctive and new and bigger.

Thanks to business leaders like Halpern, more and more historic rundown structures are getting renewed and refurbished into new and expensive looking condos.
