(Dec. 11, 2017) – 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 (BOMA/San Diego), the most prestigious and comprehensive recognition of its kind in the commercial real estate industry.
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.

The Plaza features three towers and three campus-style office buildings with 825,000 square-feet of premium workspace nestled within a lush, park-like setting. It also offers abundant on and off-site amenities for today’s forward-thinking businesses whose employees blend work and life like never before.
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, a vast 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.
