40 years of developing the next big idea.

The John Buck Company forged a powerful legacy by continually building what’s next.

  • Chicago’s first LEED® certified high-rise
  • The world’s most intelligent office building
  • And soon, the world’s healthiest


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 35 million square feet of office space, 10 million square feet of urban mixed-use property, and 5,663 residential units, totaling over $8B 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.
