    Midtown Manhattan in 1946

    From the June issue: A combination of regulations drafted under the economic pressures of World War II and a post-war priority toward residential housing led to evictions of small office tenants in Midtown, 68 years ago this month.

    That month, the local committee of the U.S. Civilian Production Administration, which regulated building, cut the weekly total of non-residential construction for the region. The agency was under a directive from Washington to reduce commercial construction in New York by 18 percent, because the federal government wanted to direct scarce building materials to housing construction, the New York Times reported. [more]

    More top companies are attempting to consolidate their office holdings and are offering their space for sublet, which is depressing landlords’ asking rents for trophy properties. Citing data from Jones Lang LaSalle, Crain’s reported that 30 percent of the space available in Class A Midtown buildings comes in the form of sublet space, well above the island’s 22 percent average. Even in the Plaza District, sublease space comprises 26 percent of all availabilities. [more]

    Aby Rosen and Michael Fuchs’ RFR Holding is marketing a development site between West 44th and West 43rd streets, Crain’s reported, which could accommodate construction of a building as big as 355,000 square feet.

    Sources told Crain’s that the site, on which there are currently three buildings, could command a hefty price tag — $500 per buildable square foot, going by a recent $400-a-square-foot asking price of a nearby site: a 12,000-square-foot plot at 20 West 40th Street, across from Bryant Park. Jones Lang LaSalle Capital Markets Group brokers are marketing the site.

    Meanwhile, RFR is still trying to sell a 59 percent stake in the Seagram building at 375 Park Avenue. Sources told Crain’s that investors have been balking at the $700 million price tag for the Seagram building stake. [Crain's][more]
