RDM Client Monday Properties Wins 2 TOBY Awards

Monday Properties' “Twin Towers” Class A office buildings, 1000 and 1100 Wilson Boulevard in Rosslyn, VA have earned a LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Buildings Council.

In a related action, the two buildings also were awarded The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY Award) for buildings over 1 million square feet by the Apartment and Office Building Association (AOBA) for the metropolitan Washington and Virginia market. AOBA is an affiliate of the national Building Owners and Management Association (BOMA). This local award now entitles the Twin Towers to compete for BOMA’s regional and international-level TOBY Awards.

A neighboring Monday Properties office building in Rosslyn, 1101 Wilson Boulevard was also given a TOBY Award by AOBA for buildings between 250,000 - 499,999 square feet.

Tim Helmig, Executive Vice President and Chief Development Officer of Monday Properties, said, “Our ongoing priority to implement sustainable operating efficiencies at 1000 and 1100 Wilson Boulevard has produced significant cost savings. More importantly, the LEED Gold certification we earned from those efforts has created measurable recognition of the working environment we provide to our tenants.”

Among the green efficiencies implemented at the buildings are manager-controlled water conservation standards, building-wide VAV ventilation efficiencies that reduce electricity consumption, ambient light sensors and time scheduling of all common area lighting, restroom lighting control, CO monitors in the parking garage for ventilation control, operational changes on the buildings’ boiler, and achieving an EnergyStar® rating of 93.

In addition, Monday Properties re-purposed a mis-engineered highway off ramp to create Freedom Park, a vest pocket urban amenity for the community of Rosslyn and the buildings’ tenants.
