  • 3. Executive Summary Jonathan Rose Companies is pleased to respond to the Request for Proposals for the Valley & Third Street Site in partnership with Torti Gallas & Partners (architect), Bozzuto (property manager), Dewberry and Davis (civil, environmental and traffic engineer), Tim Haas Engineers (permanent parking architect), MaGrann Associates (sustainability consultant), Greenbaum Rowe Smith & Davis (attorney), and Standard Parking (assistance with temporary parking). For over 20 years, Jonathan Rose Companies has been recognized as a national leaderProposed view of corner at in developing transformative projects based on the principles of sustainability andValley and Third Streets smart growth. Among other awards, our projects have earned an Award for Excellence from the Urban Land Institute as well as an Environmental Merit Award from the United States EPA. Our multi-disciplinary company brings a national perspective in planning and development that is grounded in our regional experience in metro New York - from New Haven, CT to New York City to Newark and Morristown, NJ. Enclosed is our proposal for the Third and Valley site. Our team’s ultimate goal for the project is to create a vibrant, transit-oriented community that is economically and environmentally sustainable and builds on the success of the 2009 South Orange Downtown Vision. Our proposal is designed as an integrated building, with a screened parking structure surrounded by a mixed-use building of residential over commercial and institutional uses. The total square footage of the development is approximatelySite context aerial of proposed 240,000 SF (excluding parking) and consists of the following program elements:transit oriented development • 206 residential multi-family units in approximately 222,000SF • 2,500 SF of retail at the corner of Valley & Third Streets • 10,000 SF of residential Flex space along Valley Street that could convert to retail • Potential live/work units along Third Street • 5,000 SF Rescue Squad facility at the intersection of Sloan and Third Streets • Parking for more than 500 cars Our proposal incorporates the recommendations of the Vision Plan by providing a mixed use response that includes convenient parking for commuters and employees as well as parking for new residents. The program includes a mix of new residential options at a range of income levels with a variety of unit types, along with a flexible approach to promote retail along Valley Street. Finally we are incorporating into our design a distinguished new home for the South Orange Rescue Squad that builds upon the tradition of outstanding public buildings in South Orange. Our proposed design resolves some the contradictions inherent in a gateway site. ItProposed view of Third modulates between the scale of the residential neighborhood and the downtownStreet Facade and tower that core by taking advantage of the grade change to step up from a three story massingterminates the vista at the end along Valley Street. The large parking garage, serving a mix of users, is effectivelyof Sloan Street screened by appropriately scaled residential elements, allowing it to serve the station and downtown core while blending harmoniously with the adjacent neighborhoods. Similarly, our plan and streetscape is sensitive to the pedestrian realm and incorporates pedestrian and biking elements. Finally, our design combines a respect for the Village’s impressive architectural heritage while also proposing a development that will incoproate state of the art sustainable green features.www.rosecompanies.com TOWNSHIP OF SOUTH ORANGE VILLAGE, VALLEY & THIRD STREET REDEVELOPMENT - REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS

The proposed plan is compatible and complimentary to the historic downtown. The building massing and its breakdown are designed to reflect the more traditional "urban increment" of the existing downtown South Orange. District facade identities will echo the cadence of the buildings in the existing downtown environment, in a similar pedestrian oriented urban realm of equal quality and dignity. Buildings will step up from three story buildings adjacent to existing three story context across Valley Street, to four story buildings at the core.

  • 27. Principles Jonathan Rose Companies has developed a set of principles to support our mission and guide our work regardless of a project’s scale. The principles are: Diversity. We seek to increase the diversity of the places in which we live and work. We know that biological systems thrive when they are diverse, and are likely to fail if they become monocultures. This principle also applies to cities, cultures and bioregions. Our work is targeted to increase the diversity of the communities in which we work. Healthy communities also mix public places—residences, places of work, marketplaces, centers for education and spiritual search. We have found that a range of uses and income levels support each other; they also act as a defense during economic swings that may affect a portion of the economy. Environmental Responsibility. Development that is environmentally responsible begins by choosing the right places to build (and preserving the places not to build), and proceeds by being thoughtful about how we build new construction or renovate our existing building stock. By coupling sophisticated green understanding with practical implementation strategies, we are able to develop green buildings at a nominal additional cost that result in substantial operating efficiencies and savings. Livelihood. The quality of integration of one’s work with the rest of one’s personal goals is expressed by livelihood, an enriched and balanced life. Economic development is often measured solely by job creation, home ownership rates, and the flow of dollars as systems of measurement that prioritize consumption. We believe instead that an economic development paradigm should focus on an investment in those elements that enhance livelihoods such as meaningful work that supports one’s needs and a community’s culture. Community design also plays a significant role in enhancing livelihood. For example, the more mixed uses that allow for the economic products of a community to recycle within it, the better the community is able to sustain itself. Interdependence. The inextricable relationship among projects, users, and their surroundings defines interdependence. The better we understand the subtle effects of the places we build, the less we disrupt the web of life, and the more we strengthen the health of the communities that we create in a fully dependent worldview. Impermanence. Finally, along with interdependence, we recognize impermanence: things change. This provides us with hope and a sense of responsibility. Since things change, we can improve current conditions. However, we also have a responsibility to plan for the future, to design in a way that is adaptable. We try to design and build so that human and natural environments can change for the better.www.rosecompanies.com JONATHAN ROSE COMPANIES | PRINCIPLES
