625 N. Michigan Avenue Wins Silver Award!

Clarence Davids & Company is proud to announce that we won a 2023 Excellence in Landscape Silver Award from the Illinois Landscape Contractors Association for our work at 625 N. Michigan. The award is in the Special Event category.

This garden features a pair of large bubbling water features with the arching arbors to create a ‘garden in the city’ feel on Michigan Avenue. Making the most out of the small spaces of the parkway beds is always an important goal. The scale of the water features and the arbors is unique to the Avenue and softened the building from the street while also softening the street traffic for the pedestrians. The garden arbors create a stunning sculptural garden gateway to the Avenue supporting beautiful climbing Mandevilla vines with their vibrant pink flowers.
