Mr Rose’s business, public policy and not-for-profit work all focus on creating more environmentally, socially and economically resilient cities. In 1989 he founded Jonathan Rose Companies LLC, a multi-disciplinary real estate development, planning and investment firm, which creates real estate and planning models to address the challenges of the 21st century.

His firm’s work touches on many aspects of community health, working with cities and not-for-profits to build affordable and mixed-income housing, cultural, health and educational infrastructure, and advocates for neighbourhoods to be enriched with parks and open space, mass transit, jobs and healthy food.

The Well-Tempered City won the 2017 PROSE Award for Outstanding Scholarly Work by a Trade Publisher and Mr Rose lectures on affordable housing, community development, smart growth and the environment.

Jonathan F.P. Rose joins our feature speakers Christina van Bohemen, Justin Lester, Connal Townsend, Adrienne Young-Cooper, Nigel McKenna, Ludo Campbell-Reid, Patrick Reynolds, Dr Rebecca Kiddle, James Lunday and the Minister of Housing and Urban Development Hon Phil Twyford.
