Windrows Sale

CareMatrix has sold two of its properties at the


at Princeton Forrestal Village to a senior living developer and


in White Plains, Schwartzberg Associates.

Chancellor Park at the Windrows broke ground four years ago and has

83 units for assisted living. Forrestal Skilled Nursing &


Center is a three-story, Y-shaped 180-bed skilled nursing facility.

Adjoining these two buildings is a medical office building, and also

on this $77 million campus is a condominium retirement community with

254 villas, town homes, and apartments.

Based in Needham, Massachusetts, CareMatrix Corporation was founded

in 1990 by two brothers, Michael Gosman (Skidmore, ’85) and Andrew

Gosman (Babson, ’88), as a wholly owned subsidiary of Mediplex


Founded by their father, Abraham, Mediplex had gone public, was then

sold, and went public again. Abraham Gosman spun off the physician

care and outpatient part and took that public, leaving the residential

development and management business to his sons. In 1996 the company

was operating in North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Arizona,

and Georgia.

Schwartzberg Associates is also a privately-held and family-owned

company with a long history — more than 40 years — in senior

housing. It owns and operates independent living communities, assisted

living communities, and skilled nursing centers in New York and


"As a family-owned company, we have a special understanding of

the importance of individualized attention and the personal


says Florence Schwartzberg, co-founder.

Windrows was the first continuing care retirement community in New

Jersey to sell the independent living condos to their over-50 owners

rather than make the condos part of a health insurance package. The

university sold the land to the Gosmans outright, as it did to the

Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Merrill Lynch, Siemens, and



Princeton’s cachet was attractive to the Gosmans (U.S. 1 March 30,

1994). "Just tying in with this university is something special

for us," said Andrew Gosman. "The area is wonderful —

the name, the address . . . the alumni list."

As a matter of fact, he is producing records with a sister company,

Century Sound Studios, and has two CDs out from Jim Gafgen, a tenor.

"We’re mixing an operatic tenor voice with big band jazz,"

he says. He is producing the records and a show with Gafgen’s band.

Police Report

Arrested and charged, Christopher Carlson, 40, on


13, for filing a false police report with West Windsor Police and

theft by deception for fraudulently reporting the theft of $100,000

in merchandise. He is believed to be the son of Jane Carlson, of the

Scandinavian import firm, the Skandii Group, formerly a wholly-owned

subsidiary of Scan Global at Riverview Executive Park.

The police say that Christopher Carlson claimed that thousands of

items meant for Skandiisigns had been stolen from a warehouse at 743

Alexander Road. The merchandise included between 500 and 600 Swedish

wool blankets, 2,000 Bumpe plush toys, 250 iron candle holders, 14

rolls of fabric, 200 record albums, and 100 tote bags.

In his report to police, Carlson claimed that the goods were stolen

sometime between June 1 and August 14. An investigation revealed that

the report was generated for the purpose of filing an insurance claim.

Instead of paying his moving bill, say the West Windsor police,


tried to recoup his costs by filing an insurance claim for theft.

All of the lost merchandise was recovered and Skandiisign no longer

occupies the Alexander Road space.
