Sao Paulo has been one of Brazil’s fastest growing cities. Although the city has been plagued by problems such as crime and poverty in the past, Sao Paulo is quickly showing the world that troubled cities are fully capable of revitalization. With some of the hottest properties in all of Brazil being erected by the day, Sao Paulo is becoming one of the most popular destinations for tourists and those seeking permanent residence alike.
One man has been a major player in the revitalization of Sao Paulo. Jose AuriemoNeto is the CEO of JHSF Participacaoes, Brazil’s foremost real estate development firm. He has been instrumental in taking the firm to the next level, building many successful projects and some of the most ambitious real estate developments in recent history. AuriemoNeto has never been afraid to think big. Many of the projects that he has taken on have had towering dimensions, with some of the largest movie theaters, airports and shopping centers in Brazil today having been a result of the firm’s commitment to creating first-class built space throughout Brazil.
One of the largest projects that the firm has taken on under AuriemoNeto’s leadership has been ParqueCidadeJardim. The sprawling complex, located adjacent to one of the most heavily trafficked highways in Sao Paulo, has been an incredible success, with nearly 100 percent occupancy and stores doing a brisk business. The complex is home to four Class A office space towers, nine luxury residential condominium towers and a 180-store shopping center that includes many of the most prominent brands in the world, including Luis Vuitton, Reebok Academy and a Cinemark mega-theater.
ParqueCidadeJardim is just one example of the many projects that the firm has taken on over the last two decades. It has also been responsible for building an entire private airport. This airport has been designed to service executive jets, catering to the jet-setting global elite that has made Brazil one of the most chic global destinations. The influx of capital that has accompanied this new demographic of vacationing and second-residence plutocrats has been a major boon to the Brazilian economy.
