Jason’s Adaptive Reuse Project
In 2014, JMH Development announced a 235-room hotel construction based in Miami Beach, FL known as Aloft South Beach. As the managing partner, Jason scheduled the project to begin in early 2015. The project is a historical restoration of the Motel Ankara. It includes an eight-storey building. Madden Real Estate Ventures also collaborated with JMH in the conceptualization and development of the project. JMH hired Plaza Construction to handle the construction work and ADD to handle the architecture.
Jason said that his company has enough resources to ensure that the contractors carry out the project as planned. He also mentioned that the Aloft South Beach is one of his company’s projects targeted at restoring historical structures. The building will offer its guests access to the Collins Canal and Lake Pancoast. It lies few blocks away from Miami Beach Shores and the Miami Beach Convention Center.
