BOMA NY Claims Half of Regional TOBY Awards 

At the Building Owners & Managers Association’s 2022 Middle Atlantic Conference and TOBY (The Outstanding Building of the Year) Awards in late April, BOMA New York accounted for half the award winners. One executive and four New York City buildings and their respective owner/manager teams claimed the prestigious BOMA MAC TOBY Award at the recent in-person regional conference in Albany, NY. 

The five New York City 2022 BOMA MAC Regional TOBY winners are as follows: 

  • James R. Kleeman, BOMA Fellow, RPA won the BOMA MAC Regional Outstanding Member of the Year.  
  • 110 Greene St., better known as The SoHo Building, won the BOMA MAC Regional TOBY Award “Operating Office Building of the Year (100,000-249,999 SF).”  
  • 10 Hudson Yards won the BOMA MAC Regional Award “Operating Office Building of the Year (Over 1 Million SF).” 
  • 11 Madison Ave. won the BOMA MAC Regional Award “Earth Building of the Year.”

Winners of all regional TOBY Awards will compete against one another at the upcoming BOMA International Conference & Expo in Nashville, TN, scheduled for June 25-28.
