The Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) of Greater Tampa Bay recognized the winners of the 2014 Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) awards November 13th. The TOBY awards honor outstanding commercial real estate properties and industry personnel. BOMA Greater Tampa Bay celebrated their 30th Anniversary with the most successful, sold out event ever hosted. The event was held at the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay. The award for the Outstanding Industrial Park went to Center Point Business Park, submitted by Robert Smith, Taylor & Mathis of Florida, LLC, owned by Metropolitan Life Insurance Company.
On behalf of the staff at Center Point Business Park, we are extremely pleased to bring the Industrial Park of the Year award home to our owner, MetLife. This award exemplifies the day to day work that the Taylor & Mathis team performs as well as MetLife’s commitment to make this property stand out as a great place for companies to call home. We look forward to the opportunity to advance to the BOMA Southern Regional awards. — Property Manager Robert Smith
