    Bloomberg vs. Silverstein

    The future of Lower Manhattan is not in doubt. It will finish recovering from September 11. But what will its real estate makeup be when that recovery finishes? Some real estate analysts point to Battery Park City for an answer. In the 1990s, according to a market analysis by CB Richard Ellis, Battery Park City was roughly one-third residential and two-thirds commercial. By 2008, after fresh construction that includes the new Goldman Sachs headquarters and additional housing, the neighborhood should be about half residential and half commercial.

    Downtown appears to be shaking its third-wheel status as Manhattan’s weakest submarket for office leasing.

    According to a CBRE report, asking rents there have risen 8 percent since the beginning of 2014, surpassing gains in Midtown and the increasingly tech-friendly Midtown South. Rents continue to rise despite large chunks of space from the World Trade Center site and Brookfield Place entering the market. [more]

    Driven by low vacancy rates, Lower Manhattan office landlords have raised monthly rents by 4 percent since the year started, according to a report from commercial brokerage CBRE.

    Of note, the influx of technology companies into the area has played a key role in the rising rents citywide. Not surprisingly, the Midtown South office market — a veritable tech haven — boasts the lowest vacancies in the city, around 6 percent. Asking rents are $63 per square on average in the neighborhood, a 5 percent increase year-over-year. Meanwhile, Midtown asking rents rose by 7 percent to $74.27 per square foot. [more]

    Tenants who move Downtown can avail themselves of generous tax breaks and incentives.

    Droga5, a trendy advertising firm that recently took 92,000 square feet over five floors at 120 Wall Street, received $800,000 from the state’s World Trade Center Job Creation and Retention Program (JCRP) to be paid out over the life of its 15-year lease. The company will also be eligible, through a tax reduction program available Downtown, for up to $2.50 per square foot off its rent, which could be worth $225,000 annually, Crain’s said. In exchange, the company will add 154 jobs by the end of 2017.
