From the April issue: While leasing activity ticked up in March from the previous month, it is hard for commercial brokers to remain upbeat: They say they are doing fewer showings to future tenants. Manhattan showed a slight increase in leasing activity, rising to 1.52 million square feet in March from 1.32 million square feet the previous month, according to a market report from brokerage CB Richard Ellis. It is higher than the 1.42 million square feet leased in March 2007. “It’s not like there is zero activity and dire straits; there is still activity in the market,” said Grant Greenspan, managing director in charge of leasing for the Kaufman Organization.
