In 2008 Bob Rose was honoured with an Order of Australia for his contribution for service to the building and construction industry and to the community, particularly  in the area of sustainable urban development and planning and through support for a range of charitable organisations.


Under Bob Roses leadership, his family company, Rose Group, has been a pioneer in land remediation and a leader in the development of lifestyle communities. The Cape Cabarita development was created on a 7.5 hectare waterfront property, formerly occupied by Wellcome Pharmaceutical, which required remediation.


Rose Group built on this success with their purchase of the 52 hectare AGL site at Mortlake which has been transformed into the new Breakfast Point community. Breakfast Point, a joint venture with Cbus, is truly unique, with 1.5 kilometres of waterfront walk, massive areas of manicured parkland and first-rate community facilities. Ultimately, Breakfast Point will be home to 5,000 people. Its sixteen year development program is in its eleventh year and right on target.


In the last two years, Rose Group has released eight new buildings at Breakfast Point, including Cypress (31 homes); Maple (21 homes); Jacaranda (30 homes); Indigo and Magnolia (98 homes in two five storey towers); The Silkstone (45 homes) and Verandahs on the Bay (a small, exclusive harbour front building of 21 luxury homes). Sales have been exceptionally strong. At present the Rose Group has 212 apartments under construction at Breakfast Point.


The Rose Group has also been busy in China over the last three years. After achieving development consent for a 250,000 square metre mixed use development in Hefei it sold its 50 per cent interest in the projects so it could concentrate on its various residential projects in and around Sydney.
