Big Tech firms like Facebook, Apple and Amazon are beating at the doors of New York City landlords looking to lease millions of square feet of premier office, retail and warehousing space.
Whether it’s the deal Mark Zuckerberg’s social network is reportedly negotiation for 1.8 million square feet at Hudson Yards, or Apple’s search for as much as 750,000 square feet in the city, Silicon Valley firms are among the most active tenants in the market.
Tech firms leased 15 percent of the nearly 15 million square feet of office leases signed in Manhattan during the first half of the year, according to CBRE. That’s up from 10 percent of deals for the full year in 2018.
But it’s not just office space: Apple has nearly a dozen retail locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island. Amazon either currently has or is eyeing locations for distribution centers in each of the outerboroughs. And with its nearly $14 billion acquisition of Whole Foods in 2017, the company has a sizable retail footprint that keeps growing.
Here’s a look at all the Big Tech locations in the Big Apple:
