Considered amongst the most prestigious industry awards, all three properties qualified for the regionals after winning at the local level in November 2017. As a next step, the regional recognition qualifies the properties for the TOBY International Awards, which will take place this June in San Antonio. Including the three new awards, Stiles Property Management has won a total eight TOBY awards in 2017-18 for various managed properties.
Plaza at Las Olas: Stiles' owned and managed corporate headquarters, Plaza at Las Olas in downtown Fort Lauderdale has been renovated four times since it was originally built in the 1940s. In its most recent renovation in 2010, the property earned LEED certification while being transformed into a contemporary and functional Class A office space. The building is managed by the Stiles Property Management team of Yakir Dotan, Chris Gallego and Brad Hart.
Legacy Place: Located at 11290 Legacy Avenue, Legacy Place in Palm Beach Gardens is an approximate 424,000-square foot shopping center across from Downtown at the Gardens. The center is managed by the Stiles Property Management team of Wendy Hernandez, Ana Torres, and Dwayne Soderberg.
Miami Intermodal Center: Located at 3811 NW 21st St., adjacent to Miami International Airport, the MIC is a massive ground transportation hub that provides connectivity via various modes of transportation within the tri-county area. Comprising 19.3 acres and owned by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), Stiles began managing the facility in 2015 when it officially opened to the public. In July 2017, Stiles commenced management services for the portion of the facility allocated to the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority, which includes Tri-Rail. MIC is managed by the Stiles Property Management team of Devon Newton and Christine Jarro.
The TOBY Awards are the most prestigious and coveted awards of their kind in the commercial real estate industry. The awards recognize superiority in office and industrial buildings and reward excellence in building management. During the review process, all facets of a building's operations are thoroughly evaluated — from community involvement and site management to environmental and green policies and procedures.
