We're thrilled to announce that Andre Wiggins, Senior Vice President and General Manager with MB Real Estate at the Richard J.Daley Center is the WINNER of our Property Management Professional of the Year award! A public building in the heart of the Central Loop, the Daley Center is the home to Cook County Circuit Courts, welcomes 20,000 visitors a day, hosts 300 annual events on the plaza, and serves as the unofficial home to most downtown protest activity. Despite these unique challenges, Andre ensures the building’s safety for tenants, visitors and building staff alike, while spearheading the building’s COVID-19 preparedness and mitigation efforts. Andre has also initiated numerous projects to reduce costs and drive revenue earning activities including energy efficiency initiatives saving 500,000 kWh usage each year, marketing and leasing of vacancies, increased revenues and expanded use of plaza event space. When he’s not working, Andre participates in buildOn mentorship program, coordinates workshops to encourage minority business participation at the building, and is a volunteer basketball coach at Romeo Elementary School.

The Richard J. Daley Center, a 2021 local TOBY finalist, is located in the heart of Chicago’s business district and was built in 1965 by the Public Building Commission of Chicago. Designated a Chicago Landmark in 2002, the Daley Center is one of the largest courtrooms in the country – designed with enough mechanical and electrical infrastructure to handle another structure of its size. The Daley Center has achieved several awards, including the BOMA/Chicago TOBY award in 2001 and 2002, the regional TOBY award in 2006 along with Energy Star and LEED Silver and Gold certifications.

The Richard J.Daley Center is managed by MB Real Estate and owned by the Public Building Commission of Chicago.

Local TOBY winners will be announced on February 4 at our annual TOBY/Gold Circle Awards Gala. To register, visit https://www.bomachicago.org/home/events/event-detail/2021/02/04/default-calendar/2021-toby-gold-circle-awards-gala-1377

Who is the Public Building Commission?

The Public Building Commission of Chicago plans, designs and constructs municipal buildings—schools, libraries, fieldhouses, fire stations and more.

The Public Building Commission is committed to client service and strong stewardship of public resources. The PBC plans, designs and builds municipal facilities that reflect the highest standards of environmental and economic sustainability.

The vision of the Public Building Commission is a built environment in which function, beauty and sustainability are inherent to every community; where physical surroundings inspire and support achievement of the individual goals of those who live, work and visit Chicago and Cook County; and, where people gather to share the common values that truly build our communities.

The Public Building Commission of Chicago was established on July 25, 1956. Recognizing the need for professional management of public construction projects, Mayor Richard J. Daley formed the Public Building Commission to oversee construction and help ensure quality facilities, an important goal that lies at the heart of our organization. Today, Chairman Lori Lightfoot is joined on the board by 10 other business and civic leaders whose dedication to the city and its communities has led them to volunteer their time to shape Chicago’s built environment and its future.

Access to knowing It can help you and your business to keep growing, and by just letting others know... It's truly awesome to live in a community that's thriving. It's significant for underserved communities and those with high unemployment numbers get a stimulus package and improvement projects begun in them. It's a blessing when you see the residents of these communities working on these projects and within these programs. I applaud the Organization's, Public Officials and Companies that fulfill these needs...
