The Taj Mahal Medical Center, located at 23521 Paseo de Valencia in Laguna Hills, California, received a TOBY award by BOMA of Orange County in the category of Medical Office Buildings. The Taj Mahal Medical Center is a three-story, 89,000-square-foot landmark mid-century modern building, which was transformed into a Class A state-of-the-art medical office building. Situated on a raised podium across the street from Saddleback Memorial Hospital, the neoclassical contemporary architecture is reminiscent of similar landmark buildings like the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., the Lincoln Center in New York and the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion at the Los Angeles Music Center in Los Angeles, California. The building is also walking distance to the Laguna Hills Mall, which is under renovation and has been renamed Five Lagunas, and Laguna Woods Village (formerly known as Leisure World).
