Brandywine's World Savings Center Wins 'East Bay Office Building of the Year' Distinction

OAKLAND, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 28, 2006 -- The World Savings Center at 1901 Harrison Street, Oakland, owned by Brandywine Realty Trust (NYSE: BDN), has been honored by the Building Owners and Management Association (BOMA) as an Office Building of the Year for 2006.

The award recognizes excellence in office building management and operations in specific categories of building size and type. Judging is based on community impact, tenant programs, energy management systems, accessibility for disabled persons, emergency evacuation procedures, building personnel training programs and overall quality indicators.

"This is the most prestigious and comprehensive program of its kind in the commercial real estate industry," said Dan Cushing, senior vice president and managing director of Brandywine's Northern California region. "Preparing for this presentation takes countless hours and a team effort."

The building is a 272,100 sq. ft class A office building and won in the 250,000 - 500,000 sq. ft. category. It will now be considered for the regional and, eventually, international competition. Nola Montgomery is the senior property manager for the building. Additional property management staff include Cynthia Johnson, property operations; Bruce Hermeston, lead building operations engineer; and James Sarmiento, building operating engineer.
