Building Owners & Managers Association International recognizes Crescent for managing McKinney & Olive to highest standards of excellence in building management
Crescent Real Estate LLC (Crescent) and J.P. Morgan Asset Management announce that McKinney & Olive in Uptown Dallas has earned designation as a BOMA 360 Performance Building from the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International. The BOMA 360 Performance Program® validates and recognizes commercial properties that demonstrate best practices in building operations and management.
McKinney & Olive is owned by institutional investors advised by J.P. Morgan Asset Management.
BOMA International showered high praise on Crescent’s operation of the iconic Uptown Dallas office and retail development. “We are proud to designate McKinney & Olive as a BOMA 360 Performance Building in recognition of the high standards the Crescent Real Estate management team has achieved in every aspect of building operations and management,” said BOMA International Chair John G. Oliver, BOMA Fellow, managing principal for Oliver & Company.
“By achieving the BOMA 360 designation, Crescent’s management team at McKinney & Olive has demonstrated to their owners, tenants, prospective tenants and the community that this property is being managed to the highest standards of excellence.”
According to BOMA International, the 360 Performance Program comes at a critical time, as building owners and managers need to differentiate themselves in a demanding market. The groundbreaking building designation program evaluates properties in six major areas: building operations and management; life safety/security/risk management; training and education of building personnel; energy management; environmental/sustainability performance; and tenant relations and community involvement.
The BOMA 360 Performance Program takes a holistic approach to evaluating a building’s operations and management and benchmarks a building’s performance against industry standards.
Developed by Crescent and currently Crescent-managed, McKinney & Olive’s sleek design provides quality outdoor views for more than 75 percent of customers. The Cesar Pelli design features a sheer glass façade, roof-top terrace and one-acre outdoor piazza that provide a creative space for office customers and connects McKinney & Olive with the community.
“J.P. Morgan’s corporate credo is, as J.P. Morgan himself said, doing ‘first class business in a first class way’,” stated Dianna Russo, Executive Director, Real Estate Americas at J.P. Morgan Asset Management. “With this well-deserved designation, Crescent demonstrates its commitment to managing and operating McKinney & Olive to the same standard.”
“A core value of Crescent is customer service. Our owners and customers deserve and expect best-in-class service and a superbly managed building. The BOMA 360 Performance Program has given us another meaningful way to demonstrate our commitment to excellence. We are honored to receive this recognition,” explained John Zogg, Managing Director of Crescent.
“Angelique Wade and her property management team at McKinney & Olive continue to earn recognition for delivering on Crescent’s passion and culture of exceptional customer service, which we value as a business advantage,” Zogg added.
Earlier this year, McKinney & Olive earned The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) Awards from BOMA Dallas and the BOMA Southwest Region and will compete for the International TOBY Award at BOMA’s international conference in June. TOBY awards recognize quality in commercial real estate buildings and reward excellence in building management. Additionally, Crescent has been recognized 10 times with the National Commercial Real Estate Customer Service Award for Excellence, the “A List” Award, from CEL & Associates, Inc.
