The Magnificent Mile Beautification Awards Second Place 875 North Michigan Avenue

The Magnificent Mile® in Chicago is known for its iconic, vibrant gardens. Michigan Avenue comes alive with a symphony of seasonal magical designs, fountains, and art that fillThe Avenue with colorful blooms. This iconic Avenue is more than a street, it is a canvas where the city's motto, "Urbs in Horto" (City in a Garden), bestowed upon Chicago many decades ago, thrives. The Association has continuously upheld the title for the city beautifully.

Each season a harmonious collaboration between property owners, property managers, and landscape contractors work to craft sunning garden displays that transform The Magnificent Mile® into an oasis. These stunning garden displays decorate The Magnificent Mile® district and keep it a top visitor destination. The Association annually celebrates the best of the best in garden design and “wow” factor with Beautification Awards. Now, with the summer seasons coming to an end The Association is thrilled to announce the five awards that will add yet another chapter to the story of this iconic Avenue.
