About the Rose Family:

Randolph and Ellen Rose along with their three sons, Austin, Jordan and Harlan, have always had a vision to help revitalize Yonkers by bringing the arts back to the area. Randolph started his idea of creating this Yonkers arts district back in the 1980’s when he moved his arts and furnishings warehouse from Manhattan up to Yonkers. He has since purchased the weaving building of the Alexander Smith Carpet Mills, on Nepperhan Avenue, which was the main building of the original carpet mills. Rose has spent the past 10 years rehabbing the huge 170,000 square foot, multi-tenant loft building. His 30 tenants are an extraordinary group of artists, designers and film companies. The building also hosts Rose’s three family-owned businesses: The Randolph Rose Collection Inc., which creates handmade, custom bronze sculptures; FEA Home Inc., a sophisticated company specializing in antiques and one-of-a-kind works of art from the Far East and South East Asia; and RJ Rose Realty LLC., a company specializing in creating a SOHO type of commercial multi-tenant building that caters to the arts. The Rose family’s artwork and antiques have been featured in the finest shops around the world and in leading places such as Frontgate Catalog, American Express, Brownstone Studio, Discovery Channel, Smithsonian Museum, Brooklyn Museum, Halls Catalog, Care Catalog, Banana Republic and more. The Rose Family also formed a coalition with 11 other landlords, who together occupy a total of more than 1.5 million square feet of multi-tenant and industrial space in the Nepperhan Valley. The coalition is rebranding the area with street banners and contemporary lighting and graphics to make a new district referred to as CMAD (Carpet Mills Arts District). Together, they all hope to make this the start of a rebirth for Yonkers Arts, turning the Rose’s vision into reality.
