Colorful Fall Gardens Have Arrived On The Magnificent Mile!
Beautiful mums of all colors, decorative cabbages and plump pumpkins have replaced the summer plantings in the parkway gardens along The Magnificent Mile®.
The Fall 2015 Magnificent Mile® Beautification Walk was conducted on Wednesday, October 14 by members of the Association’s Public Way Committee. The scores were tallied and the winning Fall 2015 property is:
1. The Ritz Carlton Residences (118 E. Erie Street) and the winning landscape contractor is Interior Garden Services, Inc.
Rounding out the top five scoring properties for the Fall 2015 season are:
2. 626 N. Michigan Avenue (Woman’s Athletic Club of Chicago)
3. 730 N. Michigan Avenue
4. 625 N. Michigan Avenue

Every season, members of the Planning & Advocacy Division’s Public Way Committee assess each property regarding the condition of its plantings, trees, sidewalks and facades. Awards will be presented to the properties with the highest combined scores for each season at the 2016 September Membership Luncheon.
The Public Way Committee would like to thank all of the property owners, building managers and landscape contractors for their commitment to maintaining and enhancing the beauty of The Magnificent Mile District.
