Sunset Media Center Wins 2014 TOBY Award
The Building Owners and Managers Association of Greater Los Angeles (BOMA) recently awarded Kilroy's Sunset Media Center building the 2014 Local TOBY Award for Best Renovated Building. This complex renovation included the entire first and second floor public areas and lobbies in the 22-story high rise building, as well as the valet parking area, garage and complete site upgrades. The entire ground floor was demolished and expanded by cutting out the existing 2nd floor concrete deck and providing structural upgrades to create a two story open Mezzanine with glass guardrails. As an even larger challenge, all of this work was completed without disruption to the various ground floor tenants including restaurants, coffee shops, banks and retail tenants, as well as all of the corporate tenants that make up the remaining floors of the building.

LABC to Recognize the Best of L.A. Architecture at their Annual Luncheon
History of LABC Founded in 1936, the Los Angeles Business Council (LABC) is as much a part of Los Angeles as the historic Downtown buildings from the same era. From the outset, LABC has represented Los Angeles’ forward-thinking ideals by facilitating the growth of one of West Coast’s major hubs of progressive education: University of California, Los Angeles. As a non-profit, the organization successfully expanded UCLA’s presence and then broadened their reach to encompass all of Los Angeles while continuing to advocate for education, sustainability, and business.¹

As always, it is an honor to have projects nominated annually for IIDA Calibre Design Awards, and we are pleased to announce that the Warner Music Group headquarters project won in the “Work Extra Large” category.
