TOBY buildings are evaluated on community impact, tenant/employee relations programs, energy management systems, accessibility for disabled people, emergency evacuation procedures, building personnel training programs, and overall quality indicators. Park Central 7 8 9 (pictured), managed by Parmenter Realty Partners and owned by Parmenter Park Central, won the Renovated Building category.
