The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY®) Awards is the most prestigious and comprehensive program of its kind in the commercial real estate industry recognizing quality in commercial buildings and rewarding excellence in building management.

Established by the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International, The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) Awards were developed in 1985 to honor and recognize the quality in office building operations and award excellence in office building management. During the competition, all facets of a building's operations are thoroughly evaluated. Buildings are judged on everything from community involvement and site management to environmental policies and procedures.

The TOBY Awards bring together members of BOMA New Jersey celebrate our great properties here. After a win at the local level, buildings move on to the BOMA Middle Atlantic Region to compete against other buildings for the honor of competing at the BOMA International level.
