A local commercial real estate group named the 30-story Alex. Brown Building as the top downtown office building during an awards ceremony last night.

The Building Owners and Managers Association based the award on the 475,000-square-foot building's management and operation. The 1 South St. building, managed by Cushman & Wakefield Inc. and completed in 1992, was purchased last month by a Philadelphia company for roughly $85 million.

BOMA also presented Building of the Year awards to 11 other commercial properties.

Other downtown buildings honored were the Annie E. Casey Foundation Building at 701 St. Paul St., which is managed by Carey Winston Co.; the Charles Center South and One Center Plaza buildings, both of which are managed by Manekin Corp.; and the First Maryland Building, managed by Hallwood Management Co.

Also recognized were the Kornblatt Inc.-managed First Center Building, at 110 S. Paca St. across from Oriole Park at Camden Yards; Fidelity and Deposit Co.'s 300 St. Paul Building; and the Garrett Building at 233 E. Redwood St., which is managed by Colliers Pinkard and is the headquarters of law firm Gordon, Feinblatt, Rothman, Hoffberger & Hollander.

The Timonium Corporate Center, a 134,000-square-foot building at 9515 Deereco Road, was named BOMA's suburban office Building of the Year. The 10-story building is managed by Hill Management Co.

Other suburban buildings recognized by BOMA were Court Towers at 210 W. Pennsylvania Ave. in Towson, managed by attorney Peter G. Angelos' Artemis Management Co.; Crain Towers, an 84,000-square-foot project in Glen Burnie managed by Casey & Associates/Oncor International; and a 56,000-square-foot building at 891 Elkridge Landing Road, part of the Airport Square complex in Linthicum. That building, known as International Landing, is also managed by Colliers Pinkard.
