Home Sweet Home

TBWA Chiat/Day in New York has won awards for its work but never for the “attractiveness, efficiency [and] impact” of its building. Until now.
The shop’s green-glass home at 180 Maiden Lane (shown here) has been named Operating Office Building of the Year by the Building Owners’ and Managers’ Association of Greater New York.
The 41-story structure bested three others in its category, including 375 Hudson St., home of Saatchi & Saatchi, said Judy Lampert, deputy executive director of the 875-member group.
Staffers learned of the designation from a congratulatory sign in the lobby, although many had not heard of the association.
Ironically, sources have said parent Omnicom Group is thinking about moving the shop to 11 Madison Ave., now home to Wells BDDP and–believe it or not–BOMA’s Historical Building of the Year.
