Our Mission

We revitalize communities by transforming under-utilized spaces into remarkable places where people, businesses, and towns thrive.

our capabilities


We see potential. We imagine what a property can be through design, focusing on bringing value to the town and its people. Then, we get it done — from approvals to occupancy — vision becomes reality.


After being designated by townships, we build. Whether residential, retail, or mixed-use, our over-amenitized, transit-friendly and green properties create lasting value in some of the most desirable locations throughout New Jersey and beyond.


We are hands-on at every stage of property management. Our developments and tenants receive great care, ensuring an exceptional, on-going lifestyle experience for businesses and residents.

Corporate Partners & Redevelopment

JMF Properties is chosen by some of the largest corporations in America to transition their corporate campuses into profitable retail and lifestyle centers. Recent partnerships include Colgate-Palmolive, Chubb Insurance, the City of Bayonne, Port Authority of NY/NJ, the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA), the federal government and Northrop Grumman. From start-to-finish, and with great detail and sensitivity, we negotiate the complex process of rezoning these environmentally impacted sites to create places of lasting value, introducing some of most well-known big name retailers to support the communities in which we build.

“The city interviewed many companies, including national developers, before deciding on JMF. JMF had the market knowledge and proven track record for each component of the project: big box, lifestyle retail and residential.”
