What Makes a

Good

The Chicago Association of REALTORS ® (C.A.R.) established the Good Neighbor

Awards in 1992 to encourage rehabilitation and redevelopment in the city’s North Side

neighborhoods. Today, the awards showcase groundbreaking rehabs, redevelopments,

historic preservations and new construction projects across the city and the suburbs.

Good Neighbor Award Winners are visionaries who set new standards of excellence and

make the Chicago area a better place to live.

Exceptional properties are nominated by real estate,

construction and development professionals, and public

officials, such as city aldermen. Nominations are evaluated

by a committee of REALTORS ® and industry peers who

select the finest properties.

Initially, awards recognized property owners whose

rehabilitation projects positively changed their surrounding

neighborhoods. Today, they go much further. Good Neighbor

Awards recognize those whose efforts go above and beyond

their peers to conquer challenges and add innovation to the

market.

The first office-to-residential conversion in Chicago’s Loop

is a prime example of a past award recipient. The developer

overcame numerous challenges posed by city departments,

neighboring buildings and the marketplace. Once a unique

concept, such downtown conversions are now standard.

Numerous other developers expanded the idea and,

ultimately, created a community where none had existed.

Other examples of past award winners include some of

the first conversions of old, abandoned industrial buildings

into loft properties that helped enliven the West Loop

neighborhood with restaurants, shops and nightlife.

Good Neighbor Awards have also recognized historic

renovations that saved architecturally-significant buildings

from the wrecking ball. In one case, a special award was

presented for total restoration of a mansion that stood as

a sole remnant of an elite Chicago neighborhood in what

had become an industrial area. In the shadows of one of the

largest trade show centers in the world, the mansion is now

a bed and breakfast.

Other award winners have included developers who take

special care to fit in with their properties’ surrounding

neighborhoods, and who tackle projects to bring stigmatized

properties back to life. An example of a formerly stigmatized

property is a condo conversion of a multi-unit rental

building in which an arson fire killed seven people. After

Neighbor?”

much struggle and several attempts by other developers, the

property was finally re-developed and brought back on the

tax rolls, eliminating blight within a residential community.

The Good Neighbor Awards recognize properties that offer

amenities tailored to their communities, often enhancing

commercial vitality and local pride. This year is no exception.

Projects receiving 2016 Good Neighbor Awards include:

• A mixed-use renovation in Uptown that transformed

a 1928 transient apartment building into a sleek,

well-run apartment complex, with amenities like

an Internet café, Heritage Coffee shop and other

leased commercial spaces that is helping to

re-awaken a sense of community in the area.

• Where a warehouse that didn’t lend itself to

conversion once stood, today hosts 14 occupied

single family homes. The addition of planted

parkways and families in the area, whose children

attend the public school nearby, is helping to

transform a corner of Logan Square.

• A long-vacant property near the Six Corners

Business District has been transformed into a

beautiful, high-end restaurant to invest in and help

build the community’s revitalization.

As they do every year, this year’s Good Neighbor Award

winners tell the story of varied lifestyles in Chicago – and

real estate that responds to neighborhood needs.

• A single continuous public park adjacent to

Millennium Park that integrates active and passive

recreation, Maggie Daley serves as a counterpoint to

Grant Park’s formal landscape “rooms” and provides

families and individuals alike a place to gather

and play.

• A vacant industrial lot has evolved into the Pulaski

Promenade, a symbol of revitalization in Chicago’s

14 th Ward, bringing many jobs to the community

and encouraging businesses back into the area.

The Bruce Abrams Award

In 1999, the Chicago real estate community lost a great friend with the passing of Bruce Abrams, founder

& president of LR Development, now Related Midwest. His work throughout Chicago, the suburbs and

the country was extraordinary. Whether it was a new construction, an

entire development, renovation, restoration, or conversion, he

did it with class and style. Abrams was a highly successful and

well-respected developer of commercial and residential real

estate, known not only for his tireless energy and ambition,

but also for the care and taste with which he approached

renovation projects in historic and aging properties.
