The developer asserts that this is the first time a minority-owned firm has been selected to lead construction of a Chicago highrise, Crain’s Chicago Business reports, adding that it hasn’t been able to verify if the claim is true.
Regardless, it is a significant achievement for Bowa, reaching a market position more commonly associated with large general contractors such as Walsh Group and James McHugh Construction.
