511 East John Carpenter Freeway, owned by Codina Partners and managed by Crescent, earned the BOMA Dallas Lone Star Industry Excellence Awards held in March and the Southwest Region TOBY Awards in April, qualifying the property to compete for the international award for buildings with 100,000 – 249,999 square feet. The seven-story, 164,299-square-foot building is located in Las Colinas. The Energy Star-benchmarked building features a conferencing facility, fitness center, on-site deli and controlled access security, as well as improved health and safety measures to help manage COVID-19.
During the pandemic, 511 East John Carpenter Freeway modified building systems to capture and kill germs and viruses, earning platinum certification from Haven Diagnostics and being rated in the top five percent of healthiest buildings in Dallas Fort Worth and the United States. Crescent implemented aggressive protective measures to protect health and safety of customers, including a double air filtration system and virus-killing UV lighting in HVAC systems. Common areas are equipped with Nanoseptic sleeves and spray designed to capture and kill germs. Ionic Air cleaning systems were added to elevator cabs.
The TOBY awards, which reward excellence in building management and recognize quality in commercial real estate buildings, are considered the most prestigious and comprehensive awards of their kind in the commercial real estate industry.
“It is an honor for Crescent to be recognized for excellence in managing these buildings,” said Jonathan (J.J.) Jones, Crescent property manager at 511 E.
