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. He was a highly successful and well respected developer of commercial and residential real estate, known not only for tireless energy and ambition but for the care and taste with which he approached renovation projects in historic and aging properties.
The current leadership of Related Midwest honors his legacy, demonstrated by the additional awards won since his passing. In 2000, the Chicago Association of REALTORS® created the Bruce Abrams Good Neighbor Award, which is bestowed upon only one Good Neighbor Award recipient each year for their exceptional work.
