MARKET SNAPSHOT:
MAY 2024

Since the pandemic began, Tenants have been seeking higher quality office space in superior locations, while taking the opportunity to increase or more often, reduce their total square footage, at better pricing.  

   

​In May, 2024 Class A rent averaged $87.24 while Class B properties averaged $65.92. More compelling is the difference in Class A and Class B subleasing rates where there is nearly a $22psf difference between Class A direct leasing and Class A sublease space. Class B Direct vs Class B subleasing has just a $9psf difference. 

 

There is now approximately 19,200,000sf of available sublet space located in Manhattan, about 4%, a figure that continues to gradually decrease in a marketplace with more than 500Msf. 

The average asking rent in Manhattan has decreased slightly to $74.16psf. Midtown office "asking" rents average $78.24 psf, Midtown

South "asking" rents average $80.34 and Downtown asking rents remain steady at $57.69. The overall asking rent average in Manhattan is now 5.3% lower than pre-covid figures.
