Beautification Awards

The 2018 Magnificent Mile® Beautification Awards were presented Thursday, September 27th at the Magnificent Mile Association’s Fall Membership luncheon held at The Holiday Inn Chicago Mart Plaza North. Even with extreme weather fluctuations over the past seasons, the landscaped gardens along the Magnificent Mile and in the surrounding neighborhoods of the Magnificent Mile District have never looked better than they have over the past year!

Members of the Planning & Advocacy Division’s Public Way Committee judged each property on North Michigan Avenue and rated their landscaped parkway gardens as well as the condition of sidewalks, facades, and trees. A total of 42 awards were presented at the luncheon under the categories of Chairman’s, Honor, Merit, Neighborhood Recognition, and Landscape Contractor.

The Association was pleased to announce that the 2018 Chairman’s Award was won by the property at 663-673 N. Michigan Avenue which is owned by PPF/MB N. Michigan Avenue Venture, LLC. and managed by Cushman & Wakefield.  An award was also presented to the property’s landscape contractor, Interior Garden Services, Inc.

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. The Committee would also like to thank the Woman’s Athletic Club of Chicago and their General Manager, Fred Fletcher, for graciously hosting our Public Way Committee for breakfast after the beautification walks this past year.

 

Congratulations to the 2018 Winners!
