Thursday, October 6, 2016 marked the Building Owners and Managers Association’s 31st annual TOBY (The Outstanding Building of the Year) awards ceremony. The JLL team from 1 Cal Plaza, owned by Beacon Capital Partners, submitted their property for the last category of the night, the TOBY for “Over 1 Million Square feet”. As the time came for the final winner to be announced the entire 1Cal team, including Group Manager and Vice President, Peter Anastassiou, and Associate Director, Michelle Morales sat with their team in grave anticipation. Months of planning, practice, and preparation boiled down to that defining moment. The entire 1Cal team had a lot to celebrate and be proud of as they were announced as the winners of their category.
“Submission for building of the year is a huge task and the 1Cal team strived for excellence and succeeded. The team did a phenomenal job bringing the property to its current level”, says Associate Director Michelle Morales.
