Silverstein, Tishman Speyer Honored with BOMA NY Pinnacle Awards

Tishman Speyer took home four Pinnacle Awards from the annual Building Owners and Managers Association of Greater New York ceremony held recently at Pier Sixty. The firm received awards for Historical Building of the Year (50 Rockefeller Center), Mixed-Use Building of the Year (30 Rockefeller Plaza) and Operating Office Building of the Year for properties between 500,000 and one million square feet (1230 Ave. of the Americas), in addition to an award for employee Leonard Blakaj. 

Larry Silverstein, founder of Silverstein Properties, kicked off the evening as the winner of the Henry J. Muller Achievement Award. 

Lori Raphael, executive director of BOMA New York, said, “It was truly an honor to be a part of my first Pinnacle Awards. This year marked the 51st anniversary of this illustrious program, and we had the most attendees ever. It was inspiring to watch our industry peers celebrate each other’s achievements and successes.”
