    While Mayor Bill de Blasio is catching flack for downplaying a property tax increase for many city homeowners, he seems to be saying very little about a property tax hike on commercial real estate.

    Earlier this week de Blasio reportedly boasted he was proud of the fact that the first budget of his administration lowered the property tax rate on one-, two- and three-family homes by .18 percent. [more]

    Plaza District office rents are rising quickly, due to a lack of available space on the upper floors of trophy office towers, according to a recent market report by Avison Young.

    The Plaza District is seeing asking rents of around $130 per square foot, up $30 per foot from the fourth quarter of 2013, according to the report. To date, there have been 18 deals with starting rents north of $100 per square foot this year, compared to only 13 at this time a year ago, the data shows. [more]

    Asking rents were in the high $40s per square foot. [more]

    From the March issue: It takes time to earn your chops in New York real estate. The learning curve is steep, and the market demands both skills and connections. Most of the industry’s household names, on both the residential and commercial side — with the exception of real estate scions like Jared Kushner, Justin Elghanayan and a handful of others — are at least well into their 40s. But there are always ambitious young guns rising to the top of the industry. [more]
