BOMA’s 2008 Office Building of the Year is Related’s LEED-EB-hopeful Time Warner Center.

Back in late April, the Mid-Atlantic Conference of Building Owners and Managers Association named the Related Companies’ Time Warner Center in Columbus Circle its 2008 Office Building of the Year (for buildings larger than 1 million square feet). Related is currently seeking a LEED-EB rating for the 80-story, 2.8 million-square foot tower, which was completed back in 2004.

In order to confer the award, BOMA ranked buildings on a scale of 1-80 based on categories that included environmental and energy management, emergency preparedness, and tenant relations. There are fifteen local BOMA chapters that constitute the Mid-Atlantic Conference, and Time Warner’s recognition qualifies it to compete in the BOMA international competition that will take place next year. The tower won BOMA’s New York City competition before moving on to the regional.

Related has been an active participant in the LEED program, particularly here in New York City (with its efforts at Hudson Yards now pending). In addition to Time Warner’s LEED-EB application, the company is currently developing the Harrison condominiums on West 76th Street and Amsterdam Avenue (aiming for LEED Silver), the Superior Ink condo development in the West Village (Gold), the Brompton on the Upper East Side (Silver), and also completed the LEED Gold-certified Tribeca Green rental apartments in Battery Park City (all of which were designed by Robert A.M. Stern).
