We Implement Vision

From initial vision to stabilized operations, we help cultural, health, and educational institutions turn their goals into a physical reality—newly built, renovated, or repurposed.

Realizing Mission

Vibrant communities include superb cultural, health, and educational institutions. As an owner's representative, we provide these vital organizations our expertise in acquisition, programming, design, environmental strategies, financing, construction, and operations.

We bring together a deep understanding of the mission and challenges of our not-for-profit clients and the best practices of for-profit project management. All of our clients have big goals and tight budgets—our job is to help balance these, and produce extraordinary projects.

From Theatre to Performing Arts Complex

Signature Theatre had outgrown its current location and sought an expansive new home. We introduced Signature to the developer of a new multi-use tower in Manhattan’s Theatre District, and then provided project management, design coordination, and construction oversight services to complete the new performing arts center.

In the Service of Community

Communities of opportunity encompass much more than housing and workplaces. We have helped a wide variety of cultural, health, and educational organizations realize their missions as they grow.


Culture, curation, production, and performance are rapidly evolving, requiring facilities that are technically and acoustically superb, flexible, and deeply connected to both local and digital communities.

Jonathan Rose Companies works with organizations whose audiences range from local to global, and whose facilities are an anchor of their communities.


Physical and mental well-being are essential pre-conditions of opportunity.

We support community-based healthcare providers to create projects that enhance the well-being of communities by providing access to quality healthcare.


In the 21st century, lifelong educational institutions are key to opportunity. We support innovative public and private organizations in expanding their educational facilities and developing new ones.

Working across the educational spectrum, from early childhood centers to sophisticated graduate facilities, we help our clients address their students’ 21st century challenges.

The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.
