Morguard’s Mississauga City Centre Properties Awarded The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) Award at BOMA Toronto Celebration of Excellence Gala

Morguard 6/3/2019

Morguard is proud to announce that the company’s Mississauga City Centre (MCC) properties at 33, 55, 77 and 201 City Centre Drive were awarded The Outstanding Building of the Year (“TOBY”) award for Suburban Office Park at the BOMA Toronto Celebration of Excellence. The properties also received the Certificate of Operational Excellence at the gala.

“We are honoured to receive the award in recognition of the Mississauga team’s hard work and commitment to management excellence,” said Tullio Capulli, Vice President, Eastern Canada at Morguard. “The TOBY award underscores our dedication to high property performance and strong sustainability practices.”

This award demonstrates the commitment of the Mississauga team to continually collaborate and engage with stakeholders, tenants and communities. Built in 1972, the office complex was able to prevail over newer competition through innovative sustainability programs and investment in green-focused retrofits.

Key programs implemented at the properties in 2018 include: 

  • Continuing conversion of interior and exterior lighting to low-energy LEDs

  • Partnership with urban waste hauler, allowing conversion of compactor units to 100% recycling and reducing the transportation to landfills

  • Conversion to low-flow water fixtures

  • Rain sensors on the irrigation system at MCC properties to reduce wasted water during rainy days

  • Enhancing tenant communication and engagement programs, including Morguard Green Link, to promote, support and encourage sustainable practices

TOBY is the most prestigious and comprehensive program of its kind in the commercial real estate industry, recognizing quality in commercial properties and rewarding excellence in building management. TOBY winners are recognized in specific categories of building size or type. Judging is based on a thorough investigation on building standards, community impact, tenant relations, energy conservation, environmental, regulatory and sustainability, emergency preparedness and security standards, and the training of building personnel.

As a winner of the Toronto TOBY award, the properties are eligible to enter the BOMA Canada National Awards being held in September 2019. Congratulations to the MCC team!
