Nominations in for BOMA/NY Pinnacle awards.

Times Square's in the spotlight with multiple nominees and three of New York's largest towers--including two of the City's most famous skyline icons--will do battle for the title of Operating Building of the Year on the evening of February 8, when the curtain goes up on the local round of real estate's most prestigious award--the BOMA/NY Pinnacle Award.

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.
