Bucksbaum Properties, LLC (Bucksbaum) is a fully integrated real estate owner/developer based in Chicago, Illinois. Founded in 2011 by John Bucksbaum, the company’s mission was to capitalize on urban retail opportunities, post Great Recession. With the changing retail landscape, Bucksbaum has continued to adapt its business plan, successfully developing retail, hospitality, office and apartment properties as part of the evolving mixed-use environment. Retail fundamentals remain at the heart of Bucksbaum’s investment strategy while continuingly evaluating how retail interacts with all asset classes.
Currently Bucksbaum believes the in-place pricing of retail is creating opportunities to buy exceptionally well-located infill neighborhood assets with attractive risk adjusted returns. Specifically, Bucksbaum is looking for assets in this category type that also have a long-term potential for higher and better use as a dual-pronged exit strategy.
With an executive team of industry leaders, flexible capital and an unparalleled track record in development, property management and leasing, Bucksbaum is uniquely positioned to execute this strategy in various markets across the United States.
