Congratulations to 100 N Riverside & CBRE for Winning the 2018 International TOBY Award!

By: | June 28, 2018

The commercial real estate industry honored 16 commercial properties with The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) Award at the June 26 TOBY Awards Banquet as part of the 2018 BOMA International Conference & Expo in San Antonio, Texas. This year marked the 32nd anniversary of the TOBY awards.

The TOBY Awards are the commercial real estate industry's highest recognition honoring excellence in commercial building management and operations in specific categories of building size and type. To win an International TOBY Award, a property first must win both local and regional competitions. Judging criteria include community impact, tenant/employee relations programs, energy management systems, accessibility, emergency evacuation procedures, building personnel training programs and overall quality indicators. A team of local industry professionals conduct comprehensive building inspections and grade written applications at the local level. Local winners then proceed to the regional and international competition where seasoned judges thoroughly review and score written applications.

We are so proud of our seven BOMA/Chicago International TOBY nominees and are excited to congratulate 100 N Riverside for winning the International TOBY Award.
