Yonkers Building Awarded for Excellence in Building Management
Cranford, New Jersey—May 31, 2005—Mack-Cali Realty Corporation (NYSE: CLI) today announced that it has received the 2005 Office Building of the Year (TOBY) award for 3 Odell Plaza, a 71,065 square-foot office/flex building located at South Westchester Executive Park in Yonkers, New York. The award was recently presented by the Westchester Chapter of the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) at its Hall of Honor Awards Dinner.
The TOBY award is based on excellence in office building management, where all facets of a property's operations are evaluated including building maintenance, tenant relations programs, and community involvement. 3 Odell Plaza won the award in the under 100,000 square-foot office building category.
Mark Durno, vice president, property management, commented, "We are especially pleased to receive the TOBY award for 3 Odell Plaza, as it demonstrates Mack-Cali's ability to serve the evolving needs of our tenants." He added, "Mack-Cali acquired this building in 2003 with the expansion needs in mind of Montefiore Medical Center—a significant long-term tenant in the Park. We have since leased the entire building to Montefiore and renovated it to meet the tenant's unique space requirements."
