Jason Halpern is a renowned real estate developer in the United States. He is popular for the development of the flashy and luxurious buildings in Miami, Brooklyn and other places in New York. However, he is most popular for his reuse of buildings and advocating to maintain some aspects of the initial infrastructure in order to maintain its architectural integrity. He builds residential complexes and luxurious hotels from some of the old structures and creates a very spectacular building. He is the current director of the Parametric Dining, LLC in Philadelphia. The company has been in his family for years and he took over its leadership in 2010 and has seen it achieve so much success. He combines his entrepreneurial skills and his love for architecture in order to gain a competitive advantage in the industry.
In his years as the company’s director, it has been able to make some of the best business alliances that have resulted in some amazing building projects. In 2014, Halpern announced a big milestone in the construction of the Aloft Hotels. The construction would involve the building reuse of the motel Ankara. The Plaza Construction Company would build an eight storey tower incorporating the initial architecture of the building. The building would be one of the biggest addition into the Aloft group of hotels. The hotel was scheduled to open in 2015 and this meant that the companies were in line with the schedule. In addition to having guest accommodation, it would also have an outdoor pool, a meeting area and a rooftop lounge. The hotel would also be part of the Guest(R) program. Under this program, customers can gain and redeem points for flights, rooms to stay or an upgrade for their rooms.
Halpern controls all the residential and commercial real estate properties owned by the company across different parts of U.S. One of its major secrets into being the leading developer of luxurious properties comes from the strategic location of their properties. In 2011, Halpern gained more recognition when Parametric Dining had one of its buildings win an award. Their construction of the 340 luxurious apartments in Kent won the year’s Brooklyn Building award for the adaptive reuse category. This was one of the building moments of Halpern’s career in real estate development. Cass Gilbert-designed waterfront warehouse was once the host of the biggest grocer in all of U.S. The warehouse build in 1913 is still in the history registry records because Halpern advocated for the preservation of its architectural integrity during its reuse. This building is now one of the most sought after rental building in the area for its good view of Manhattan and its location that is close to many other auxiliary facilities.
