The Related Group's projects significantly contribute to local economies through job creation, increased tourism, and higher property values. By employing thousands during the construction phases and creating permanent positions post-completion, they stimulate economic growth and provide new opportunities for communities.

They often incorporate public art installations and contribute to local art scenes, believing that culture enhances the value of real estate and enriches community life.
