(West Seneca, December 16, 2005) An awards dinner and Christmas party were held on Thursday at the Twentieth Century Club where the annual Office Building of the Year (TOBY) awards were presented from the Greater Buffalo Buildings, Owners and Managers Association (BOMA). Calamar was presented with the TOBY award in the Best Medical Facility category for its submission of Western New York Medical Park.

Western New York Medical Park is situated on 13-acres in West Seneca. This unique medical campus is comprised of three connecting multi-level buildings housing a multitude of medical specialists, outpatient diagnostics, treatment modalities, ambulatory surgery, pre-operative testing, and pharmacy all under one roof, creating a true "one-stop shop" experience for consumers. BOMA officials and judges inspected the property for a variety of criteria including overall aesthetic appearance, function, security and safety plan, management, tenant space, landscaping and more. BOMA is a worldwide business association designed to promote and look after the interests of commercial office building ownership and management. This award distinction is the second from BOMA for Calamar, winning the best medical category in 2002 for the Summit Healthplex, a 95,000 S.F. medical campus in Wheatfield, NY. Between these two facilities, Calamar owns two of the largest medical campuses in Western New York.

"Winning the TOBY award from BOMA is a great honor and a real achievement for our organization" said Calamar President Kenneth Franasiak. "Our management team consistently strives to ensure all our buildings are maintained to the highest standards and this recognition is a testament to their hard work and dedication".

Winning the TOBY award at the local level allows Calamar to submit Western New York Medical Park in the next competition stage, at the regional level and could advance all the way to the international level.
