    From the March issue: The New York City real estate community took notice when news broke in late January about MaryAnne Gilmartin’s expected promotion to CEO of Forest City Ratner.

    An advocacy group largely supported by the city’s real estate industry raised more than $12 million for Governor Andrew Cuomo, and $17 million overall, in 2011, its first full year of operations. A review of the Committee to Save New York’s finances conducted by the New York Times found more than two-thirds of the $17 million to have come from donors giving $250,000 or more, and three donors combined to give $6.25 million. By donating to the advocacy group, which has funded television and radio ads in support of Cuomo, these wealthy contributors can bypass the $60,800 state limit on direct donations to candidates.

    Manhattan office leasing finished 2011 with gradual but steady improvement in asking rents, according to data released today by CBRE.

    The exception is Midtown South, where the “glow of Google,” as Mary Ann Tighe, CEO of the tri-state region for CBRE, called it, pushed 2011 absorption to 2.19 million square feet — the highest for that market since 1997.

    The city’s commercial firms generally went with scaled-down holiday parties as the industry licked it wounds in 2011 after making it through a difficult year.

    Many commercial firms opted for low-key themes either by spending fewer dollars or going for a less formal environment, for example at least two opted for bowling, and CBRE Group headed to the circus. [more]
