As a full-service real estate development company, JMH Developers plans and owns numerous residential and commercial projects, particularly in New York and Miami. Using innovative approach to design and construction, the company plans everything from branding, due diligence, marketing, and strategy. Once the initial platform is set, it takes charge of construction, design, and planning.

One of the recent examples of its innovation is a 235 room hotel on the water front of South Beach, in Miami. The Aloft South Beach offers a prime location in the heart of the historic distric within walking distance of countless major attractions. Preserving the history, JMH Developers and its partners developed the site using the adaptive reuse of the historic Motel Ankara. The innovative construction technique not only ensured that historic elements of the structure remain intact, but it also allowed designers to offer 360 square feet of room space to visitors. In fact, the large open spaces and tall columns in the lobby are reflective of the benefits of the model.

New York Keeps Attracting Investors

Europe has always held a lot of glamour for the rest of the world, but there’s no question that New York City has always been a place that combines a lot of grit with its native glamour. New York is also, without question, a place with incredible staying power. New York has weathered many ups and downs over the years, including a brush with bankruptcy in the 1970s and a shaky period following the 2008 economic meltdown. Today, however, New York is back and looking better than ever, especially to foreign investors.

Right now many foreign investors are fleeing from Europe, in what is called a “flight to quality.” Europe is going through extreme shakiness right now, especially in the wake of the recent “Brexit” vote. With Britain’s leadership unstable, and the fate of the European Union unknown, investors are quite wary of putting a lot of money into property there. That’s why New York, with its stable and growing job base and wealth of gentrified neighborhoods, is looking better all the time.
