Transwestern Real Estate Services (TRS) announces Doctors Center at Emory St. Joseph’s Hospital has won BOMA Georgia’s 2021 TOBY® award for outstanding medical office building. The Class A campus, which is attached to Emory Saint Joseph’s Hospital, won a TOBY last year in the Renovated Building category. Transwestern Senior Managing Director Steve Hall, Managing Director John V. Lopez, and Senior Associate Bo Stuart provide leasing services for the property on behalf of Chicago-based Lillibridge Healthcare Services.
“Winning a second TOBY award is a great honor for our company and Doctors Center,” said Carla Moule, General Manager, Lillibridge Healthcare Services. “We are extremely proud of our Atlanta team’s dedication to customer service and property management excellence.”
Doctors Center is located at 5665 Peachtree Dunwoody Road in Atlanta’s Central Perimeter submarket. Anchored by Emory Healthcare, Resurgens Orthopaedics Atlanta, and Atlanta Gastroenterology, tenants at the property also include Emory’s Winship Cancer Institute and Perimeter Specialty Pharmacy, among other specialty healthcare providers in cancer/oncology, cardiac care, and urology. The three-building, 370,000-square-foot campus is adjacent to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and connects to Northside Hospital Atlanta by a footbridge.
A $12-million renovation was completed at Doctors Center in 2019, which included replacing the atrium with a gallery area; adding a new fitness center and grab-and-go Chick-fil-A kiosk; updating entrances, signage, and wayfinding; and modernizing the elevators. Planned future amenities include a new café.
“Doctors Center offers an array of benefits – from modern, upscale amenities to collaborative opportunities with Emory and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to direct access to MARTA, I-285, and GA-400,” said Hall. “Lillibridge has always been committed to elevating the property to the highest standards and we’re thrilled to see the campus receive the recognition it deserves.”
The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) Awards represent commercial real estate’s highest recognition, honoring excellence in building management and operations.
