History[edit]

Established in 1930 by Arthur Rubloff, the company brought a new splendor to Chicago’s city skyline. Arthur Rubloff was responsible for some of the most notable and successful real estate developments in Chicago, including The Brunswick Building, the Greyhound Bus Terminal, Evergreen Plaza Shopping Center and the Carl Sandburg Village. Rubloff was involved in hundreds of real estate deals during his career that helped to shape the city of Chicago. He died in 1986 at the age of 83.

Rubloff grew rapidly in the 1970s and 1980s, establishing its presence in twelve metropolitan areas, including; Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington D.C., Detroit, Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, Cincinnati and Cleveland. In 1993, Rubloff sold its commercial operations including Rubloff Development Group, Inc., and concentrated its efforts on tackling Chicago's residential sector. In 1996 Howard Weinstein and Tom Horwich became co-owners. Today, Rubloff operates out of seven different offices, covering areas including the North Shore, Lincoln Park, the Gold Coast, the South Loop and Harbor Country in Michigan.
