According to his plan when he won the contract to handle the construction of the building, he assigned his company to work along with the Madden Property Ventures to have the development process completed by the end of the period in the schedule. For this reason, he has worked to issue numerous working ordeals to develop the property using the highest technology. This hotel is one of the most adaptive re-uses of the historic Ankara Motel in the heart of Miami Beach. They will also have an inclusion of an eight-story tower in the structure to develop it with the highest technology possible. On the other hand, AD Architectures Company was given the task to ensure ha all the building in the building adhered to the actual processes in the structure as one of the biggest ways to secure the end of the building.

Since 2009, there is no other building in the region which has been constructed to suit the particular needs situated in the area, for this reason, they are one of the most adopted scalabilities in the region.  For this reason, they are also expected to capitalise their situation through these activities. According to Jason Halpern, he is extremely excited that his company has completed the topping off of the Southern Aloft Beach Hotel. For him, this completion has no more meaning than the signal of the next process of construction as much as it is a great achievement for the company.

For him, this is an addition of the historic structure which offers no more than the real esteem related to the construction process of the company. While it marks a significant milestone in the construction process, it also has a role to play in the addition of the work portfolio of the company. JMH Development is one of the most experienced companies in the adaptive re-use of the historic structures in the region.
