Rose Investments builds on Jonathan Rose Companies’ 20+ years of green real estate investment and development success. Its market-based strategies seek to combine a disciplined investment approach with innovative green solutions to provide superior, risk-adjusted returns on behalf of institutional and high-net-worth investors.

The multi-million dollar capital improvement program at West 135th Street was accomplished with tenants in-place and was the first recipient of Federal stimulus money to green affordable housing.
