ATLANTA-Two metro area commercial buildings have won top awards at the Building Owners and Managers Association’s international annual conference in San Francisco.

Wildwood Plaza, a 12-year-old, 687,000-sf office complex at 3200 Windy Hill Rd. in Wildwood Office Park garnered the Earth Award after industry professionals named the property the most environmentally friendly building in North America.

The 27-story, 420,000-sf 230 Peachtree building in the central business district’s Peachtree Center complex won a TOBY Award for excellence in office building management and operations in the renovated buildings category.

Locally based Cousins Properties Inc. developed Wildwood Plaza at its 289-acre acre, master-planned Wildwood Office Park, just north of Downtown Atlanta in Cobb County. Cousins has an equity interest in Wildwood Associates, the recorded owner of Wildwood Plaza.

Cousins’ Janine S. Powell, Wildwood Plaza’s building manager, entered the property into the worldwide competition. In a prepared statement, BOMA says the building “earned especially high scores for hazardous waste management and communication, emergency response plans, water and energy conservation, indoor air quality program, environmental risk management, employee health and safety assurance and green purchasing policies.”

I.M. Pei of Pei Cobb Freed & Partners in New York designed Wildwood Plaza.

Cousins’ leasing team scored a coup in May when it signed locally based Coca-Cola Enterprises Inc. to three separate leases totaling 214,000-sf for an estimated 10 years at Wildwood Plaza, as previously reported. The transaction, valued at an estimated $45 million, is the largest office deal of the year in the metro area, area brokers tell

The 230 Peachtree building, owned by 230 Peachtree LLC, was cited by BOMA judges for community impact, tenant/employee relations programs, energy management systems, accessibility for disabled people, emergency evacuation procedures, building personnel training programs and overall quality indicators.

Timothy S. Harrison of Parmenter Realty Partners here, the building’s manager, submitted the 230 Peachtree entry. Locally based John Portman of Portman and Edwards Architects designed the building.

Locally based Barton Protective Services Inc. sponsored the Earth and TOBY Awards competition.
