Fueled by an in-born creativity and armed with an entrepreneurial spirit, Mr. Hernandez first began his involvement with cutting-edge real-estate development during the 90’s as a hands-on investor in the rapidly expanding Miami market. From his committed and direct personal involvement, Hernandez was able to create a dynamic formula for building, marketing and delivering condominium projects that ensured both high quality finishes and timely completion.
In 2001, Hernandez founded H&H Development Co. – a $260 million multifamily development firm that specialized in mid-market product with a luxury edge. In a short two-year time period, the company amassed an impressive portfolio of 2.4 million square feet of active development. On the foundation of this success, Hernandez formed Newgard Development with a vision to revitalize the high-end residential market in South Florida with a more comprehensive product that delivered the best in location, amenities, finishes, design and lifestyle. BrickellHouse is the latest achievement under this visionary approach, and is set to become a flagship property for Newgard and the city of Miami.
