Druker, the Recession Barometer

Druker, the Recession Barometer
Ron Druker
To know when the recession is over, keep an eye on the corner of Arlington and Boylston. Ron Druker, third generation developer with The Druker Company, has marked turn-arounds before. In the ?80?s, his Heritage on the Garden helped return the Back Bay to its former glory, and in the Naughts, his Atelier | 505 said the South End was again the place to live. He's now finishing plans with architect Robert A.M. Stern for 230k SF of offices including 15k SF of international retail on the A & B corner. Permits in hand, he's ready for high end tenants to return. His guess: another three years. BTW, the copper griffin on the table replicates those at the Boston Public Library, where Ron endowed a design and architecture lecture series to mark his family?s 100 years in Boston real estate.
