Headquartered in Sao Paulo, JHSF prides itself in being a leader in the high-end real estate sector of Brazil. The company has made significant contributions to the incorporation and development of residential and commercial property and the management of high-end hotels, international business airports, as well as shopping centers.
Founded in 1972, the company has received recognition in several areas such as its ability to identify new opportunities. Among other things, the company has gained tremendous popularity due to its pioneering potential, daring, innovation, quality and its ability to offer lasting solutions in all its projects. The growth of JHSF is evident in its expansion both locally and internationally. The firm has operations in Sao Paulo, Manaus and Salvador. Globally, JHSF has its presence in Miami and New York (USA) and Punta Del Este (Uruguay). The 42-year old real estate firm topped the 2007’s Bovespa list in the Corporate Governance segment. At any given time, JHSF usually has a labor force of 1001-5000 people.
The growth of mature real estate markets abroad led the company to redirect its focus to recurring revenue. Recent years have seen the firm prioritize the implementation of projects that entail the development and administration of luxury hotels, shopping centers, and the Catarina Integrated Urban Development. The first phase comprises the Catarina Fashion Outlet and Catarina Executive Airport. This new source of income has brought about a significant increase in the revenues of the company.
