The Outstanding Building of the Year “TOBY” Awards Program designated by BOMA is the most prestigious recognition that building operators can achieve in commercial real estate. The award recognizes quality and excellence in the daily management of office buildings. All aspects of day-to-day management are scrutinized. Some of the categories include community involvement, amenities packages, tenant relations program, building standards and overall exceptional service.

In 2012, a TOBY was awarded to 6100 Wilshire Boulevard, owned and operated by Kennedy Wilson Properties. Not only was this a huge achievement for Kennedy Wilson’s onsite management team led by Vivian Melendez, but another success story for Advance Building Maintenance. Ten days prior to TOBY building inspection, Advance was awarded 6100 Wilshire’s janitorial contract and faced the daunting challenge of cleaning the property to award winning standards. Within a very modest amount of time, Advance significantly improved the cleaning quality at 6100 Wilshire and was an instrumental participant in achieving its Building of the Year Award.
