Part of the leadership at JMH Development is Jason Halpern as the Managing Partner. From a history point of view, Jason’s family has been in the real estate sector for many years. The Halpern family has had a stellar track record of managing and constructing numerous properties in New York for more than 50 years. As such, the family has been responsible for building hundreds of residential apartments in New York City while developing several million square feet of commercial space.
In 2010 Jason Halpern took control of the family business JMH Development and now under his leadership they have over $500 million invested in projects in New York alone. This includes a widely lauded development on 184 Kent, where they turned a warehouse into 340 luxury apartments. 184 Kent was announced as the recipient of the 2011 Building Brooklyn Award in the adaptive reuse category. JMH Development is an experienced developer of major residential and commercial properties across the country. With a focus on an innovative approach to developing distinctive luxury properties, JMH has pioneered the development of well positioned and unique properties.
The restoration of the Townhouses of Cobble Hill is among the projects that Halpern has completed. With his unique development expertise, the 45-year-old has led JMH to the acquisition and development of several historically significant landmarked buildings. The goal of Halpern and JMH Development is to ensure they create high-quality work spaces throughout the country with a touch of innovation. What makes Jason Halpern stand out from the crowd of his peers is his niche passion for building in historic districts.
On his personal time, Jason Halpern pursues philanthropic interests. He spends his spare time and resources at a Trauma Center in Westchester. His charitable endeavors don’t stop at his community seeing that he has brought the same culture of philanthropy to the workplace. For instance, in 2015 he launched a partnership program that donated $20,000 of every contract signed to benefit water projects in Ethiopia and Nepal. This means that JMH Development, with the help of local charities in the countries mentioned above, is bringing clean water to many Ethiopian and Nepalese locals.
