11 Times Square drives up availability

In November, the entire 1.1 million-square-foot building at 11 Times
Square was officially added to CB Richard Ellis’ list of available
space, helping to push net absorption to within a few thousand square
feet of the losses in 2001, data from a Manhattan report released today
by CBRE showed.

The SJP Properties speculative office tower at 42nd
Street has no reported signed leases.

Net absorption in Midtown, through November, stands at a negative 8.57
million square feet, compared with the total negative net absorption in
the 12 months of 2001 that was just below 9 million square feet. The
availability rate for Midtown in November was 11.5 percent, the report
showed, compared with 8 percent in November last year.
