Spring Fling in September
Chicago real estate’s premier charity event is back, better than ever and fashionably late.
A strategy focused on profitable conservatism.
We search out opportunities in supply-constrained U.S. markets with high barriers to entry, targeting submarkets that cater to growth and high-quality experiences. Whether developed or acquired, our consistently best-in-class assets attract informed institutional investors.
Reimagining workspaces, living environments, and skylines.
We’ve developed or repositioned 34 million square feet of office space, 10 million square feet of urban mixed-use property, and 5,063 residential units, totaling over $7.7B in gross value. We apply our proven approach to developing exceptional properties.
Enhancing investments by enhancing experiences.
Keeping a multi-system machine worth hundreds of millions of dollars running smoothly isn’t simply a job. Done right, it’s an art. JBC elevates the practice of building management across a select portfolio of notable buildings.
Enduring value from enduring values.
JBC integrated environmental, social, and governance issues into how we do business long before it became a thing. We led the LEED curve by more than a decade and recently adopted WELL standards. To us, this approach isn’t simply good for people and the planet, it’s good business.
A family lesson on asset management.
As a depression-era farmer on the Texas panhandle, John Buck’s father instilled a lifelong lesson: buy the best you can afford, maintain it well, and it will provide a lifetime of value. That lesson permeates the culture at The John Buck Company and remains key to our proven record of success.
