LaSalle Wacker Building advances to the International TOBY Awards


The LaSalle Wacker Building, located at 221 N. LaSalle, has received the North Central Region TOBY Award for Historical Building category in Chicago. The property which is managed and leased by MB Real Estate will now advance to the BOMA International TOBY Awards where the results will be announced at the BOMA International Conference in San Diego this June.

Our EVP & Chief Operating Officer, Kevin Purcell, said, “We are very proud of our team, tenants and the ownership at 221 N. LaSalle. BOMA awards are known for recognizing the best of the best in commercial buildings, and it is an honor to be a part of this esteemed circle.”

MB Real Estate has managed and leased the LaSalle Wacker Building since 2010. The property was designed by the prominent Chicago architectural firm of Holabird and Roche in partnership with Andrew N. Rebori, and Wentworth, Dewey and McCormick and constructed in 1930. The 413,000 square foot building has 41 stories, a penthouse, and three lower levels. It is the third largest courtyard office building in Chicago after the Board of Trade and the Civic Opera House.

TOBY awards are presented through the Building Owners & Managers Association (BOMA). Regional winners of the TOBY will compete in 14 categories to win the highest honor as an International TOBY Award Recipient.

Best of luck to all those that advanced!
