Cogratulations Town Center - Regional TOBY Winner!

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN — April 10, 2019) The North Central Region of the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) announced that 9 properties have won the regional competition of The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) Award. The North Central Region includes Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Kentucky.

In the commercial real estate industry, the TOBY Award is the most prestigious and comprehensive award of its kind, recognizing excellence in office building management and operations in specific categories of building size or type. All regional winners first won on the local level after thorough building inspections and a rigorous written application process. Written applications were then judged on the regional level. Applicants were judged on tenant relations, commitment to environmental sustainability, emergency preparedness, budgeting, work order systems, security standards, staff experience and continuing education opportunities.

The regional winners will proceed to the international competition. International winners will be announced on June 25th at the TOBY Awards Banquet as part of the BOMA International 2019 Every Building Conference in Salt Lake City, UT. “Hard work, dedication and commitment. These are true testaments of property management teams to be the best of the best in all aspects of their building. Each of our regional TOBY winners have shown a desire to contribute to the overall success of their owners, clients and communities and we wish them the best of luck as they proceed to the international competition,” said Debby Pyznarski, President of BOMA North Central Region and Senior General Manager at Lincoln Property Company.
