Real estate development is in the blood of Jason Halpern. His family has been involved in real estate development for over three generations now. The Halpern family has constructed hundreds of apartment units in Westchester County, New York and in New York City.

Jason Helpern continues the family legacy of real estate development and construction in New York and beyond.
Jason Halpern is very different than most real estate developers who rush into a project and look for the quickest way to make a buck. Many developers ignore the historic value of buildings and do not think of preserving the unique history attributed to a building. Jason Halpern wants to preserve the history and unique elements of a building or neighborhood when he develops a project. Mr. Halpern also has a strong fondness for actually developing in historic neighborhoods and turning them into thriving neighborhoods once again.
When Jason Halpern develops real estate, he develops a relationship with the people of the city where he will be developing. He believes in not only respecting the people of the community but also the historic significance of any structures in the neighborhood where his firm will be developing a new property. This view is a guiding principle of JMH Development.
Jason’s firm JMH Development managed to turn a waterfront warehouse designed by Cass Gibert into a luxury apartment building. The warehouse, which was built in 1913, used to be occupied by the Austin Nichols company, which was then the United States’ largest grocery store.
JMH Development led by Jason Helpern managed to preserve the historic feel, design and structure of the warehouse as it was transforming it into a luxury apartment complex. 184 Kent is now listed as a national historic landmark in the registry of historic places in the United States. The apartment complex is also the first luxury apartment rental community in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. It features a world class gym that overlooks the East River and also has stunning views from the upper levels.
