Nominations in for BOMA/NY Pinnacle awards.
The event is being held at the Copacabana, starting at 6 pm.
The awards are given after a rigorous competition including a basement-to-roof inspection of operations and review of a detailed written submission summarizing such areas as operations, tenant relations, community impact, emergency preparations, energy management, environmental compliance and more.
Heightening the excitement surrounding the awards is the ceremony itself, where the Pinnacles are given out in an Oscar-style ceremony where the names are not revealed until ..." the envelope please" is opened.
Local winners move on to competition at the Regional, and ultimately the International (North American) level in all but the Henry J. Muller Achievement Award category, given to a person or company who has had a major influence on the City's development, Civic Betterment and Managers of The Year, and the New Construction Award, all of which are New York-only honors.
