WHAT ARE THE TOBYs AWARDS
The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY®) Awards is the most prestigious and comprehensive program of its kind in the commercial real estate industry. The TOBY Awards Program recognizes properties that exemplify superior building quality and management practices.
The BOMA 360 Performance Program is an online self-assessment that evaluates six major areas of building operations and management and benchmarks a building’s performance against industry standards. Applicants must achieve the required number of points to be recognized as a BOMA 360 Performance Building. Only occupied commercial office buildings and industrial buildings are eligible for the BOMA 360 Performance Program designation. Additionally, there are four prerequisites that must be met to apply for the designation. Applications for the BOMA 360 Performance Program may be submitted at any time during the year, with designations conferred quarterly. There is an application fee that is tiered based on the property’s total square footage. The designation requires an annual renewal. A nine-member, independent BOMA 360 Performance Program Council has been appointed to confer the designations, provide administrative oversight and to provide continuous review and updates to keep the program current with industry best practices and standards.
Building submission takes only a few minutes via the online portal. To enter the portal please click here.
