The San Diego Building Owners & Managers Association gives the awards annually to the local and state officials who exemplify “extraordinary leadership” on issues critical to the commercial real estate industry. The awards were announced earlier this month.
“In addition to their leadership in San Diego, as well as at the state level, they were recognized specifically for their support of transparency, inclusion and their support at their respective entities for transit-oriented development and housing to help meet our region’s employment and shelter needs,” said Tom Magnussen,
president of BOMA San Diego.
Gloria, who received the award for a second time, was honored for his Sustainable and Affordable Housing Act, which will make it easier to develop housing near public transit throughout California.
Gomez, who is chair of the Metropolitan Transit System, was recognized for spearheading the effort to use MTS property for both affordable and market-rate housing development.
BOMA is a professional association committed to advancing the interests of the commercial real estate industry through legislative advocacy and community education.
