Jason Halpern is all about architecture and the creative use and retention of history. His company JMH Development has a knack for reimagining historic buildings and incorporating some of their features into breathtaking luxury apartments. They operate in some of the toniest neighborhoods in New York and Miami; these places offer some of the finest city living in luxurious surroundings.
The JMH Development project at 184 Kent street in Brooklyn, New York is an example of reusing a historic building and fashioning luxury accommodations out of it. It previously existed as a waterfront warehouse around the turn of the last century. It was built in 1913 and was once home to the largest grocer in the United States. The Austin Nichols Company enjoyed many successful years at this location during the nation’s rise.
The structural outline of the building is intact and has been converted into 340 luxury apartments. It has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places and now provides many homes in a desirable neighborhood. It features gorgeous landscaping to the tune of 20,000 square feet and a modern gym that overlooks the East River.
The retail establishments along Kent Avenue encompass 17,000 square feet and include SoulCycle and Kidville. This development comes complete with spectacular views of Manhattan and is close to the fabulous shopping and restaurants of Bedford Avenue. Halpern and JMH Development were recognized with this project and received a Building Brooklyn Award.
