    While parts of the commercial real estate market might be reaching a peak, there is still “room to run” for office rents, CBRE’s Mary Ann Tighe said during Bloomberg’s Market Makers.

    “Retail rents are extraordinary,” Tighe said, “and I think we’re going to see some pushback from retailers on that.” But, she added, there’s room to grow where office deals are concerned, as companies are more willing to sign large leases. [more]

    Despite a low availability rate, Manhattan’s East Side office submarket saw asking rents drop last year while prices in surprising niche neighborhoods such as Hudson Square are booming.
