JHSF – one of the leading real estate companies in Brazil – will implement a series of actions for the populations of São Roque and Mairinque, in São Paulo. Developer of the Catarina project, which will feature a private business airport, retail outlet mall and high-end office buildings, JHSF supports and also carries out a number of measures aimed at education, health, training, safety and the welfare of the citizens of these two cities that will be most directly affected by the undertaking.


In partnership with the city of San Roque and the Ecofuturo Institute, JHSF supports access to books and reading through the Community Libraries Project “Ler é Preciso” (“Need to Read”), an important tool to promote education and culture. The company has signed a commitment to sponsor installation, maintenance and management. The library, which has 1372 square feet of construction, is available to the whole community and its collection already has more than a thousand books.


In order to make use of local labor for the construction and operation of the Catarina project,  which will prevents population displacement and contribute to the generation of employment and income in the region, JHSF elaborated training plans through PAT – Worker Support Post, which has partnerships with Brazilian industry institutions SENAI, SENAC and others. Focusing on locations considered more vulnerable, such as the neighborhoods of  Mombasa and Dona Catarina, in São Roque, JHSF projects creating 1,360 jobs in the implantation phase of the Catarina Fashion Outlet. Local residents from São Roque and Mairinque will have preference in hiring.


To increase community safety, JHSF in partnership with the city of San Roque, supports the construction of Tourist Portals at three strategic points in the Saboó neighborhood. The portals will be equipped with surveillance cameras to fight crime and to monitor the entry and exit of residents and visitors.


The construction of Tourist Portals at the principal entrances to the Saboó neighborhood will also be of great importance for the ecological preservation of Morro do Saboó Hill and its surroundings. The initiative, which has the support of JHSF and the City of San Roque, aims to define the boundaries of the region’s tourist area and prevent environmental degradation. It will, also, limit the access of large vehicles by restricting cargo weight and gross weight.


In order to prevent the construction of new squatter settlements in the districts of Saboó and Mombasa, JHSF and the city of São Roque are studying the introduction of preventive measures in the region. One proposal being considered is hiring specialized professionals to implement the necessary legal procedures and also to intensify inspections in the area.
