Construction firm Hunter Roberts is moving across the neighborhood. Currently located at 2 World Financial Center in Lower Manhattan, the firm will move over to the 36-story 32 Old Slip, Crain’s reported. Hunter Roberts will set up shop on the tower’s 10th floor, a 37,000-square-foot space. Beacon Capital Partners, the property’s owner, was asking rent in the $40s per square foot. The area around 32 Old Slip got slammed during Hurricane Sandy in October. Storm damage raised questions about the future of the neighborhood, as properties were taken offline for weeks and more. However, despite the havoc wreaked from the storm, the downtown commercial leasing market fared well in the fourth quarter of 2012.

At a recent breakfast, Robert Constable, a downtown Cushman & Wakefield broker, said that companies would continue to take office space downtown, but landlords would have to show that their buildings are waterproofed. [Crain’s] –Zachary Kussin
