Hall of Fame

The Office Building of the Year (TOBY®) Award was created in 1985 to salute excellence in the office building industry. The TOBY® Awards has grown from a modest beginning into a notable and prestigious program that now recognizes more than just office buildings. As a result, its name has changed in 2010 to The Outstanding Building of the Year. More than 25 years later, it remains the most prestigious and highly celebrated program of its kind in commercial real estate, recognizing quality in commercial real estate buildings and rewarding excellence in building management.

The TOBY Awards program recognizes buildings at the local association, regional conference and international levels.The first TOBY International competition consisted of 23 regional entries in four categories:  Under 100,000 Square Feet; 100,000-500,000 Square Feet; Over 500,000 Square Feet; and Historical Buildings. In 1989, two categories were added, Corporate Headquarters Facilities and Rehabilitated/ Modernized Buildings, and regional participation grew to 37 entries.
