Guilherme Paulus first bought a hotel in 1995 in the city of Gramado, and his success in with this first hotel prompted him to create GJP Hotel and Resorts ten years later. The idea of land development was brought up after he bought a golf course with 2.5 million square meters of land. The 2.5 million square meters had some excess land, and Guilherme Paulus will now build condominiums on that excess land. Paulus joked, that since he already owned the land, he might as well make some money with the land by building condominiums on the land.

GJP Incorporated and Construction will soon launch Village Iguassu Golf Residence according to revistahoteis.com.br. The condominiums will occupy 160,000 square meters. There will be 109 lots, and the condominiums will be built in an American Style. The condos will have access to a gym, playroom, game room, playground, and will share the golf course. The clubhouse and all other structures have been built. The buyers will have to purchase a lot of land and then pay to have the condominium built. There is some restrictions regarding how the condos can be built, but otherwise, the buyers have many choices. Paulus has plans for other residential projects in Gramado, Aracaju, and Maceió.
