Michigan Avenue Streetscapes

If you frequent Michigan Avenue, you’re likely no stranger to the flower beds lining the streets, typically decorated according to the seasons. The arrangements are constructed by property owners and building managers along Michigan Avenue in partnership with landscape contractors. The Magnificent Mile established the Beautification Awards 15 years ago to combat the poorly cared for streetscapes, according to DNAinfo. The competition became a hit, and each year the designers continue to step up their game.

Appropriately enough, the current displays consist of bright orange and red flowers, pumpkin decorations and even some Halloween flairs with cotton spider webs and spiders made out
of rocks.
