    Affordable office space in Lower Manhattan is running out.

    As technology, media and fashion companies are moving in, the area is seeing a swift decline in availability of Class B and C office space, according to a report by brokerage Studley.

    Last month, 4.3 million square feet of Class B and C office space was available, according to the report. That’s about 45 percent less than in 2011.  [more]

    Studley’s Mitchell Steir and Time Warner Center

    British real estate brokerage Savills is approaching final talks to buy Midtown brokerage Studley.

    Savills’ presence in Asia and Europe would help expand the reach of Studley, which does not operate outside of the U.S. Although Studley has offices in Boston, Washington, D.C., and Chicago, it is smaller in scope than its rivals Jones Lang LaSalle, Cushman & Wakefield and CBRE Group. Indeed, Studley works solely with tenants and would continue to do so after a potential merger, unnamed sources said. [more]

  • Time Warner Center

    Time Warner has reached out to two additional firms, Eastdil Secured and Jones Lang LaSalle, to help it value its million-square-foot Columbus Circle headquarters, having already solicited the services of Studley last week, the Wall Street Journal reported. The media behemoth is preparing to move into a new location or consolidate its more than 4 million square feet of New York City office space. If the company does decide to sell, the building could command prices of roughly $1,000 a square foot for a total price north of a billion dollars. The intense bidding interest likely from a sale announcement would mean that brokers could reap rich rewards from commission, typically below 1 percent on a deal of this size…. [more]

    Tech firm 10gen has inked a five-year lease for about 29,400 square feet inside the former New York Times building at 229 West 43rd Street, Crain’s reported.
