Earns “The Outstanding Building of the Year” for Luhrs City Center and 2777 Camelback
Phoenix, Ariz. – Development and property management leader Lincoln Property Company (LPC) has taken home two “The Outstanding Building of the Year” (TOBY) awards for its management of the historic Luhrs City Center, located in downtown Phoenix, and 2777 Camelback, located in the heart of the Camelback Corridor.
This is LPC’s second BOMA honor for its management of Luhrs City Center and a first-time win for its management practices at 2777 Camelback.
“These projects are very different in scope and style but have the shared benefit of our management approach,” said Lincoln Property Company Director of Real Estate John Orsak. “We are not only a property manager but also a building developer and owner ourselves. That gives us unique insight into the needs of tenants and also the perspective of the owner and their goals for a building’s stability and longevity in the marketplace.”
Presented by the Arizona chapter of the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA), the annual Phoenix TOBY awards represent the industry’s most prestigious honor for excellence in building quality and management. As a winner at the local level, LPC and its Luhrs and 2777 Camelback buildings will now advance the regional, and possibly international, BOMA competitions.

Built between 1924 and 1929, Luhrs City Center sits along the Phoenix Light Rail at Central Avenue and Jefferson Street in downtown Phoenix. The National Historic Landmark encompasses approximately 157,000 square feet of office and retail space – all restored by LPC to its original red brick interiors and exposed beams. Other improvements include upgraded streetscapes, renovation of the Luhrs garage to Class A institutional quality and modernized plumbing, electrical, elevator and HVAC systems.
Since completion of these renovations, LPC has signed multiple new tenants to the ground-floor space, adding La Madeline Country French Café, Serafina Coffee Bar and Monroe’s Chicken to the existing and award-winning Bitter & Twisted cocktail parlour.

The 104,618-square-foot building is located at 28th Street and Camelback Road, and offers features such as 13-foot ceilings, modern concrete interior aesthetics, views of the surrounding mountains and a two-level underground parking garage.
