MIAMI—New Boston Fund just took home two coveted awards from the Miami Chapter of the Building Owners and Managers Association’s (BOMA). New Boston property manager Flavia Eternod won the “Property Manager of the Year” award and One Park Square the “Property of the Year” award.
The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) Awards are the most prestigious and comprehensive awards in the commercial real estate industry. They evaluate all aspects of a building’s operations from management, to community involvement and green policies and procedures.
“These awards serve as a significant recognition of the professionalism that New Boston brings to the buildings it manages,” says Pryse Elam, Southeast Regional director at New Boston Fund. “There is no greater honor for a property manager than to be recognized by her peers not only for one’s individual work, but also for their building. We are incredibly proud of Flavia and the entire property management team.”
One Park Square is an 11-story, 281,623-square-foot class A-plus mixed-use building in Doral, FL. When New Boston acquired One Park Square in September 2010, the building was newly constructed with a mere 10% occupancy. New Boston’s quickly attracted an anchor tenant, adding another 600 people to the building, and drove occupancy up to 50%.
The building features ground-floor retail space and offers some of the highest quality finishes and amenities in the Miami market, as well as panoramic views of Miami and the Doral Golf and Country Club. Eternod is responsible for all of the daily operations of the building, including maintenance, cost reduction and analysis, capital projects, business development, compliance, finances and collection, and tenant relations.
One Park Square is on a recognition roll. In November, One Park Square was also awarded the BOMA 360 Designation, recognizing the office building for achieving the highest standard of excellence and demonstrated best practices in operations and management; security and safety; training and education; energy; environment and sustainability; and tenant relations. One Park Square also recently earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’S) ENERGY STAR certification, signifying that the building performs in the top 25 percent of similar facilities nationwide.
