We’ve improved how people live and work for over four decades.

  • We bring proven experience in both top tier new construction and updating classic buildings to modern LEED and WELL standards.
  • Our best-in-class buildings span office, residential, and mixed-use properties.
Walk down Chicago’s Wacker Drive and you’ll pass four decades of development by The John Buck Company. Our work transcends individual buildings to encompass best-in-class residential and mixed-use property development that revitalize the fabric of our neighborhoods, business centers, and communities. We seek partners in major U.S. cities who share our vision for building opportunity in markets with high barriers to entry.


JBC is best known for our work as a principal developer that finds untapped potential for innovation and growth, providing a higher quality of life for residents and tenants alike.

Our North Bridge project along Chicago’s Michigan Avenue introduced far more than fresh retail; it sparked the revitalization of the entire River North district.


JBC helps property owners unlock the full potential of their real estate by developing a higher level of office, residential, hotel, and mixed-use properties. Our services include master planning, construction and development management, tenant build-outs, and owner’s representative services.


We leverage our decades of expertise and vertically integrated platform to redevelop and reposition assets that require significant capital, leasing, and operational upgrades.


Over the years, The John Buck Company has worked with the nation’s leading clients, Pritzker-award winning architects, and forward-thinking engineering and construction leaders. These partnerships reflect our discerning eye for design talent and exceptional construction expertise. Building higher level projects starts with building lasting relationships with future-forward thinkers and leaders.

If that sounds like you, let’s discuss working together.
