|Last night, we joined a record 650 attendees for BOMA/NY’s Pinnacle Awards at Chelsea Piers, the owner and building management industry’s Oscars (true to form, there was a red carpet and winners weren’t known until the envelopes were opened).|
|The winners and presenters gather for a group shot. But where’s Liz Lemon? The only building with its own TV show can now place a Pinnacle next to its Emmys: 30 Rockefeller won the Historical Building Award, while Tishman Speyer’s Lawrence Giuliano Sr., who manages Rockefeller Center, won Manager of the Year (>10 years’ experience). Bank of America Tower at One Bryant Park, which is as groundbreaking today as 30 Rock was in the 1930s, also won two—the New Construction Award and Earth Award for its sustainability. Another influential project, The High Line, won the Henry J. Muller Achievement Award for its preservation of NYC’s industrial heritage. We can’t wait to see the park, which will double in size once the new stretch to 30th Street opens in spring.|
|L&L Holding Co was a first-time winner for the Renovated Building Award, which went to 200 Fifth Ave, formerly known as the International Toy Center (we snapped CEO David Levinson and prezRobert Lapidus at a party to celebrate the building’s 100th birthdayand completion of a $135M renovation last June—right before they renovated the cake with a knife). Fifth Avenue had quite the showing, with MetLife’s 575 Fifth Ave winning the Corporate Facility Award and SL Green’s “The Little Building That Could” 609 Fifth Avewinning the Operating Office Building Award (100k to 249k SF).|
|Was snapping the Monday Properties gang at table #1 during last month’s REBNY banquet premonition? Its 18 months of high-profile renovations and building upgrades garnered 230 Park Ave a Pinnacle for Operating Office Building (>1M SF). And don't forget it's LEED-EB Gold, the first ever for a pre-war and landmarked office building. The achievement was tremendous, since it was the first Historical Building winner (2005) to ever win in OOB category, and the first woman (Monday’s Caroline Molloy) to manage a building that won this category. The other OOB winners were Malkin Holdings’1350 Broadway (250k to 499k SF) and Lexington Operating Partners’ 450 Lexington Ave (500k to 1M SF). Also winning last night: |
