The 2017 BOMA Georgia Tour of Buildings will embrace the theme of TOBY-Winning Buildings and will include building tours of an international-winning building and two regional-winning buildings.

The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) Awards are the most prestigious and comprehensive programs of their kind in the commercial real estate industry, recognizing quality in buildings and rewarding excellence in building management.

During the competitions, all facets of a building's operations are thoroughly evaluated. Buildings are judged on everything from community involvement and site management to environmental and "green" policies and procedures.

The buildings represented in this tour underwent a rigorous review to claim their respective TOBY-winning titles.

Buildings on the tour:

  •   201 Seventeenth, led by Jennifer Corbitt (CBRE)
  •   2 Capitol Square, led by Debra Myers, RPA, FMA (Georgia Building Authority)
  •   55 Allen Plaza, led by Jessica Ericson and Michelle Vaughn (Lincoln Property Company)
Each building tour lasts 45 minutes. The tour will begin and end at Atlantic Station. All participants will arrive at 201 Seventeenth for the first tour. Attendees will then travel by bus to the remaining properties.

Please note: There will be no registration refunds for this event. The tour is limited to 30 registrants.

2 Capitol Square

The 2 Capitol Square Building is located on Georgia’s Capitol Hill campus of 6.8 million square feet in Atlanta, Georgia and is managed by the Georgia Building Authority (GBA). The building is sited on the corner of Capitol Place and Capitol Square and was originally constructed for the State Department of Transportation in 1931. It has since been renovated and now houses the Office of Planning and Budget. It has an exterior marble façade on the public sides of the building and is connected to a parking deck. The building is a 5-story, 32,286-square-foot facility. The parking deck has 1,169 parking spaces within nine stories and a top level that houses two helipads. The building has HVAC consisting of a variable refrigeration flow (VRF) and energy recovery unit (ERU), split system units, ventilation fan, air distribution systems and a building automation system. The building was totally stripped to bare walls in 2014 and mechanical, electrical, elevator, and fire and life safety systems were all updated to code specifications at that time.

55 Allen Plaza

As a 14-story, Class A office building, the LEED Gold certified 55 Allen Plaza received its BOMA 360 certification in 2013. The building has also been recognized as an Atlanta Better Building Challenge top performer from 2012 through 2016 in energy conservation, demonstrating a 34 percent energy reduction. With a prime location in the heart of Downtown Atlanta, the building also features a prime ENERGY STAR score of 96, and was the 2016 TOBY Award winner for buildings 250,000 to 499,999 square feet. Further initiatives have included the installation of three, dual-car charging stations; and teaming with Zip Car and promoting alternative methods of transportation to include carpooling, bike racks and ride share programs.  Lighting upgrades at the property have been completed in the elevators, on the roof top and throughout the main lobby. Motion sensors for lighting were also installed in all janitorial closets, restrooms and mechanical rooms and variable speed drives were installed on condenser water pumps for further conservation of energy. Low-flow flush valves were installed to reduce water consumption.
