The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY®) Awards

The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY®) Award is one of the most prestigious and comprehensive programs of its kind in the commercial real estate industry recognizing quality in buildings and rewarding excellence in building management.

During the competitions, all facets of a building's operations are thoroughly evaluated. Buildings are judged on everything from community involvement and site management to environmental and "green" policies and procedures.
