With more than 25 years of senior real estate experience, Bailey is responsible for a multibillion-dollar portfolio of luxury condominium and rental homes, affordable housing communities and mixed-use properties, including the recently completed Landmark West Loop, a 30-story rental tower in the West Loop designed by Morris Adjmi Architects. Related’s ongoing developments include One Bennett Park, a 70-story ultra-luxury residential tower in Streeterville designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects, and Lathrop, a mixed-income redevelopment on the Northwest Side – both with parks by Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates.
