Related Midwest hires 100% minority-owned contracting team for Roosevelt Square

After breaking ground in January, mixed-use development Roosevelt Square's phase 3B is set to bring in an abundance of much-needed new housing to Chicago, as well as the new National Public Housing Museum. Once complete, the 160-acre master planned development will provide over 2,000 residences, both market rate and affordable, in the Near West Side neighborhood. Related Midwest has announced that the contracting team working on Roosevelt Square is composed of 100% minority-led firms. The group of firms includes: BOWA Construction, a Black-owned firm that made history with 900 Randolph, the city's first high-rise where a Minority Business Enterprise co-led construction; Blackwood Group, a Latinx-owned firm; MIKK, which played a large role in building the Lathrop residence; and GMA Construction, a Black-owned MBE that will build the residences within the National Public Housing Museum. Related Midwest is proud to continue working with diverse companies that are making a difference in the community and expanding opportunities within the real estate industry.
