Mariana and Zeco Auriemo recently hosted a dinner party in celebration of the Italian shoe brand, Rene Caovilla, opening up a store at the luxury mall, Cidade Jardem, in Sao Paulo. Zeco is the president of JHSF, the company who developed, owns, and runs the mall. It has done much in the retail sector since the early 2000s. As its CEO, Zeco led the company to acquire the hotel chain Fasano. In recent years JHSF has also taken its work beyond its borders. In 2015 Zeco took his family to New York for six months while he supervised a project there.
JHSF would be constructing a 14-story apartment building on New York’s famous 5th Avenue. This project is an approved massive remaking and remodeling of a historic 19th-century mansion. This was was designed by Samuel Warner and was completed in 1871. Like all real estate development projects involving historic buildings, the project had to be submitted for approval. And like 90% of the projects it had to be submitted three times before it was finally approved. However, even after it was finally approved, the project plan, which called for a drastic modification and enlargement of the building met with much skepticism by neighbors of the area.

The mansion has in the past been inhabited by former U.S. Vice President, Nelson Rockefeller, Las Vegas tycoon, Steve Wynn, and actor Richard Gere. Although it is by far the biggest alteration, this will not be the first time the building has a structural change. In the 1920s, it was stripped of nearly all of its original ornamentation, click (Netnoticia.com) for more stories.
