TOBY Awards Program

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 quality in buildings and rewarding excellence in building management.

During the competitions, all facets of a building's operations are thoroughly evaluated. Buildings are judged on everything from community involvement and site management to environmental and "green" policies and procedures.

The competition consists of three levels. The competition begins at the BOMA local association level, winning entries advance from there to the regional level and, finally, regional winners advance to the international level.
The TOBY occurs on an annual basis. BOMA Philadelphia begins accepting entries in April, with entry portfolio deadlines in June. Judging/Building Tours take place in July/August.  The TOBY Awards Ceremony is held every September, revealing the winning buildings in each category.
