The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) Awards are the most prestigious and comprehensive programs of their kind in the commercial real estate industry recognizing outstanding performance in buildings and rewarding excellence in building management.

During the competition, all facets of a building’s operations are thoroughly evaluated by a team of judges. Buildings are evaluated on Life Safety, Security, Risk Management, Training and Education, Energy, Environmental Sustainability, Tenant Relations and Community Involvement.

The BOMA Fort Lauderdale / Palm Beaches TOBY Awards presentation and gala is the biggest night of the year for our community. It is known as the local commercial real estate property management’s ‘Oscar Night‘ and brings together the best and the brightest in property management.

In the last 15 years, BOMA Fort Lauderdale and the Palm Beaches has boasted 15 winners at Southern Region competitions and one International Award winner.
