55 Allen Plaza Earns BOMA 360 Designation in Recognition of Excellence in Building Management
55 Allen Plaza, a Class-A, 350,000-square-foot office tower in downtown Atlanta that is managed and leased by Lincoln Property Co. Southeast (Lincoln), has been designated a BOMA 360 Performance Building by the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International. The BOMA 360 Performance Program recognizes commercial properties that demonstrate best practices in building operations and management. Fewer than 50 buildings in Georgia have earned the designation.
“We at Lincoln are thrilled that 55 Allen Plaza has received this honor,” said Shane Froman, vice president of property management for Lincoln. “We pride ourselves on providing best-in-class service to our property-owner clients and their tenants, and this high-profile honor is a wonderful validation of the outstanding work our team has been doing at 55 Allen Plaza.”
“We are proud to designate 55 Allen Plaza as a BOMA 360 Performance Building in recognition of the high standards the management team has achieved in every aspect of building operations and management,” said BOMA International Chair and CBRE Managing Director Joseph F. Markling. “By achieving the BOMA 360 designation, the management at 55 Allen Plaza has demonstrated to its owner, tenants, prospective tenants and the community that this property is being managed to the highest standards of excellence.”
Overlooking the Downtown Connector on downtown Atlanta’s northern edge, 55 Allen Plaza, which achieved LEED Gold certification in 2012, provides tenants with access to all of Atlanta’s sub-markets. As part of the Allen Plaza mixed-use development, the building is surrounded by amenities including restaurants, the W-Atlanta Downtown Hotel & Residences, retail and Centennial Olympic Park. Prominent tenants in the building, which was opened in 2007, also include Ernst & Young, Skanska and the design firm ASD.
The BOMA 360 Performance Program evaluates properties in six major areas: building operations and management; life safety/security/risk management; training and education of building personnel; energy management; environmental/sustainability performance; and tenant relations and community involvement. The BOMA 360 Performance Program takes a holistic approach to evaluating a building’s operations and management, and benchmarks a building’s performance against industry standards.
