JHSF, a real estate company in Brazil, was the first firm to be involved in recurrent income assets. It involved in the operation of an airport, shopping malls, and hotels. JHSF deals in high-income sectors in residential and commercial properties. Founded in 1972 and with currently more than a thousand employees, the firm has always constructed innovative, presentable and quality developments.
The new venture
In 2001 is when the company first ventured into shopping malls with construction and management of Shopping Metrô Santa Cruz in São Paulo. Later, JHSF created the country’s luxury market, the Cidade Jardim complex, and Fazenda Boa Vista, a residential condominium at Porto Feliz. The inauguration of the airport for executive aviation in the country was JHSF’s 2014 peak project. The São Paulo Catarina Executive Airport was the first private executive port in Brazil. The project also included the first outlet focused on the luxury segment, the Catarina Fashion Outlet.
Throughout its operation, JHSF has been recognized with several awards. North American architect signed The Vitra building, a building designed by Daniel Libeskind for JHSF, as among the best three building in the world. The building was also selected by Worth Magazine to join the world’s ten best residential buildings. In 2014, the company was awarded the best developer in the country and the 2012’s best company in Brazil in the real estate sector by the magazine Epoca Negocios. The Cidade Jardim Corporate Center got the Aqua Sustainable Building Seal and outstanding in other formats award to Caterina Fashion Outlet. JHSF are not showing any signs of slowing down soon, so they are bound to receive more awards.
