New York’s retail market revolves around the buying and leasing of commercial spaces. With thousands of retail stores across all of New York’s boroughs, the retail market drives an important portion of NYC’s commercial real estate.

NYC Retail Market Q&A

What properties are bought, sold, and leased in the NYC retail market?
New York has a wide variety of retailers and a diverse array of retail spaces that can be leased or purchased for their use. Retailers might prefer to have their business in a Fifth Avenue storefront, or tucked on a residential street, or in a mall. Spaces must have the correct zoning in order to be bought or leased by retailers, and can occupy commercial or mixed-use buildings.
