Three W&H buildings win BOMA/NY awards.

Three W&H buildings were named winners of the prestigious BOMA/ NY Pinnacle Awards at the organization's annual gala on February 7, reports Anthony E. Malkin, president of Wien & Malkin and the architect of the W&H Properties rejuvenation and rebranding strategy.

One of the recipients, 501 Seventh Avenue, received a Pinnacle award for the second year in a row.

Last year's honoree for Renovated Building, it won this year's Operating Office Building Award in the 100,000-499,999 s/f category.

1359 Broadway followed in the footsteps of 501 Seventh Avenue by winning this year's Renovated Building Award, and The Lincoln Building (60 East 42nd Street) won the Historical Building Award.

"Our overarching message to brokers and tenants is that we deliver on our promises," said Malkin. "We said we'd completely transform the W&H buildings when the brand was established in 2003.

"I can't think of stronger evidence of our success than these Pinnacle awards, and there is no stronger reference point as we begin the same rebranding process with the new additions to the portfolio."

According to the BOMA/NY Web site, the winner of the Historical Building Award demonstrates a "strong commitment to the preservation of [its] historical integrity while modernizing to accommodate the latest advances in real estate technology." The Renovated Building has "undergone modernization through restoration, renovation, expansion and/or conversion," and the Operating Office Building offers "physical attractiveness, efficiency of operation and community involvement or impact." More details are available at pinnacle.

"We're very honored to win these awards, but we're not going to stop here," noteed Malkin.

"Top-to-bottom capital improvement programs--including new windows and facades, upgraded elevators and building systems, renovated bathrooms and air-conditioned public corridors--are already underway at the five newest additions to the W&H Properties portfolio: 1333 Broadway, 1350 Broadway, 112 West 34th Street, 1400 Broadway and the Empire State Building. Soon, they too will be evidence of how we deliver on our promises."
