Newgard Development Group[edit]

Hernandez founded Newgard Development Group in 2011. The same year announced plans for building the BrickellHouse condominium. Construction began in 2012 and was one of the first luxury residential developments to go ahead in Miami since the 2008 economic downturn and late 2000s recession.[6] Newgard has also developed Centro Lofts in Downtown Miami, One Flagler Office Condos Downtown Miami as well and Gale Boutique Hotel and Residences in Fort Lauderdale Beach.[7]


In 2017, Hernandez launched Niido Powered by Airbnb, a new residential project launched in partnership with Airbnb. The first Airbnb-branded apartments were designed from the beginning to be friendly to tenants and Airbnb guest alike. The first building to open under the new brand is planned for the second quarter of 2018, and will be located in Orlando, Florida.[8] Hernandez announced a $200 million investment from real estate investor Brookfield Property Partners that will help bring Airbnb’s branded apartment project to cities across the U.S.[9]
