With renewals driving half of the top 20 leases across Manhattan year-to-date (as of Q1 2016), new space leases have dipped significantly. Last year, Manhattan saw 11 leases for new space signed during Q1 compared to just 6 this year. McGraw Hill Financial's 900,027-square-foot renewal at 55 Water Street was the quarter's largest lease.

Overall market rent costs are now $72.57 per square foot (as of Q1)—a 4.6 percent jump year-on-year—with vacancy rates seeing a bounce following moderate activity across all submarkets.

Large Downtown relocations, Midtown renewals drive Trophy activity

Midtown Trophy vacancy (8.4 percent) is at its lowest level in three years, and Downtown Trophy vacancy (17.6 percent) is comfortably below 2013’s record high. With increased interest from less cost-sensitive tenants, landlords are increasing asking rents—as high as $175-200 per square foot for some future marquee availabilities in Manhattan.
