The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) Awards


An Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) Award from BOMA is the most prestigious recognition that building operators can achieve in commercial real estate. It’s the one competition in the Los Angeles area that honors outstanding commercial office buildings and excellence in building management. All facets of a building’s operations are involved, including its tenant relations program, amenities package, and community involvement, emergency evacuation procedures, building standards, accessibility and overall exceptional service. There are plenty of reasons to enter, but the main benefits to your property are:

  • Tenant Attraction and Retention
  • Property Recognition
  • Acknowledging Your Management Team
  • Accolades for Owners
