Irvine Company Office Properties’ six-building, 17-acre The Plaza has been awarded The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) Award from the Building Owners and Managers Association of San Diego.
Located in the heart of La Jolla UTC, the project was honored in the 500,000-1 million square-feet category for its industry-leading building management and operations, excellence in building standards, sustainability efforts, community impact and customer relations and retention.
“We are honored to have received such prestigious recognition for The Plaza,” said Mike Bennett, senior vice president, Irvine Company Office Properties. “Our teams are passionate about delivering an unparalleled experience for our customers and workplace communities that set the standard for excellence in San Diego and across coastal California.”
The Plaza features three towers and three campus-style office buildings with 825,000 square feet of workspace in a park-like setting. It also offers on and off-site amenities for businesses.
The project includes two Irvine Company signature offerings: KINETIC, a state-of-the-art fitness center and wellness services provided by Scripps HealthExpress, and The Commons, an open-air workspace with complimentary Wi-Fi. It also offers on-site dining at Rick Bayless’ Red O restaurant and Specialty’s Café, and is adjacent to the newly revitalized Westfield UTC.
