Real estate developer Jason Halpern, known for his passion for constructing in diverse sites, announced the topping off of the Aloft South Beach Hotel in the center of Miami Beach.
Topping off is a builder’s practice which customarily occurs at the time the last beam is placed on the top of a structure during its construction.
This project, which was refined and advanced by JMH Development and Madden Real Estate Ventures, takes on one of the oldest buildings in the Miami Beach area. It is an adaptive reuse of the historic Motel Ankara that will also bring in a new eight-story tower.
One block from the Miami Beach shores, the Aloft South Beach is set in a beautiful waterfront location that will offer the right of entry to Lake Pancoast and the Collins Canal. It also is within walking distance to the area’s restaurants, art galleries and boutiques.
Halpern commented in a statement how topping off the building is a major high point in the construction and establishes the launch of the next phase for the Aloft South Beach. He also mentioned that showing consideration for the community where you build is an important value for him.
Some of the services the 235-room hotel will offer take in a 24-hour fitness center, an outdoor pool, roof deck lounge as well as meeting spaces.
Coming from a 3rd generation development company, Halpern carries on with his family tradition of more than 50 years in the business. The Halpern family has constructed hundreds of residential properties and commercial business spaces in Westchester County, Manhattan and Brooklyn, New York as well as in Florida.
A pioneer in one of a kind and rare properties, JMH Development offers an inventive method to creating distinctive properties. The company will continue its focus on new projects and opportunities.
