Renovated Building Of The Year!
We are very proud to announce the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) named 110 Tower as the 2013 “Renovated Building of the Year” at The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) Southern Regional Awards. The TOBY Awards program 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. After winning the local competition for BOMA Fort Lauderdale/Palm Beaches last year, 110 Tower advanced to the regional level, where it was pitted against buildings across nine states in the Southern Region. During the competition, all facets of 110 Tower’s operations were thoroughly evaluated, from community involvement and site management to environmental policies and procedures.
110 Tower took part in a thorough review including inspections of both public and non‐public areas of the buildings during the local level of the competition. The review process also included interviews with the tenants and the property management team, which was evaluated in categories such as emergency preparedness, energy management, building security and community impact.
At the competition’s regional level, more than 50 judges from the industry scored each building’s credentials in these important areas. The 2013 TOBY award winners were announced at a ceremony on April 13, 2013 at The Renaissance Vinoy in downtown St. Petersburg, Fla. 110 Tower is now eligible to advance to the international BOMA competition.
Due to the overwhelming success and demand of last year’s Lighting Partner Program, 110 Tower is pleased to launch this widespread community outreach program again. In addition to recognizing national holidays, 110 Tower’s Lighting Partner Program provides an opportunity for businesses and organizations throughout Broward County to promote their events and notable dates with special symbolic lightings at 110 Tower.
