RBIC Honors Cedar Street and the Bush Temple of Music

On Tuesday, July 25, Cedar Street Companies was honored by the Landmarks Illinois Real Estate and Building Industries Council (RBIC) for the outstanding rehabilitation of The Bush Temple of Music. The annual RBIC Award, given each year since 1993, recognizes companies and individuals that "demonstrate a special dedication to historic preservation through responsible development and planning." As part of the The Bush Temple team, we are proud of the outstanding preservation work that is represented in this exeptional project. 


In their rehabilitation of The Bush Temple for use as 101 luxury apartments, Cedar Street Properties went to great lengths to maintain the historic character of the building - from marble walls and terrazzo floors to original single-paneled doors with fritted glass and restored panel windows. 

The Bush Temple of Music joins Cedear Street's family of FLATS branded apartment buildings, a group of historic Chicago buildings that are offering amenity-rich living experiences in the city. MHA is proud to serve as historic consultants for The Lawrence House and The Otis in addition to The Bush Temple.
