Spring has finally arrived on The Magnificent Mile!
After a long, cold winter, the tulips quickly sprouted in the parkway gardens along The Magnificent Mile. The Spring 2015 Magnificent Mile® Beautification Walk was conducted on Wednesday, May 6 by members of the Association’s Public Way Committee. After judging the gardens the the Committee, the winning Spring 2015 property is: The Woman’s Athletic Club of Chicago (626 N. Michigan Avenue) and the winning landscape contractor is: Interior Garden Services.
After the 626 N Michigan Avenue winning property, the next 5 top scoring properties for the spring season are:

Each season, members of the Planning & Advocacy Division’s Public Way Committee assess each property regarding the condition of its plantings, sidewalks, facades, windows, and trees.

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.
