Importance of New York for office space

Manhattan is the most famous borough of New York City, and is home to the headquarters of many international organizations as well as multinational corporations, such as the United Nations, Citi and Pfizer. The borough is also located on an island in the middle of the city, which means that the volume space is limited in supply, meaning that real estate is in high demand there. Asking rents in the borough are, consequently, very high.

Availability of office space

The availability rate of office space in Manhattan varies between the districts, but is almost ten percent on average. This means that roughly ten percent of total rentable space is available.
