Tampa, Fla. — Nov. 17, 2015 — The Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) of Greater Tampa Bay recently recognized the winners of the 2015 Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) awards. The award for the Outstanding Industrial Building(s) went to Center Point Business Park, submitted by Robert Smith, Taylor & Mathis of Florida, LLC, owned by IP Capital Partners.
Center Point Business Park has won the award three times under Taylor & Mathis’ management, in 2009 and with back-to-back wins in 2014 and 2015. Center Point Business Park is now eligible to advance to the Southern Region BOMA competition to be held in Miami in April 2016.
The TOBY awards honor outstanding commercial real estate properties and industry personnel.
“This award is the direct result of the commitment of onsite property manager Robert Smith and his team to deliver the highest level of customer service and operations. We have an outstanding onsite management team," said Kent Walling, director of operations, Taylor & Mathis.
All applicants took part in a thorough review of their buildings, including inspections of both public and non‐public areas of the buildings. The review process also included interviews with the property management teams and tenants, during which they were evaluated in categories such as emergency preparedness, energy management, building security, and community impact.
Taylor & Mathis handles management and leasing on behalf of the new owner, IP Capital Partners. IP purchased the 55-acre, 400,000-square-foot office/flex and distribution warehouse facility in September.
