As you probably know, the commercial real estate market in NYC is hot (and it’s really not great for tenants.) Demand is skyrocketing due to the burst of new businesses on the scene. The problem with this demand in NYC is that there’s no way for building owners to accommodate with supply. In most cities when demand is great, there’s room to build out and expand the city limits (i.e. urban sprawl.) Companies can move farther away from the city center for cheaper rent, which also drives prices down in the city because demand goes down. Makes sense. In NYC, the main problem is there’s no room to build out, and what space does exist is being quickly absorbed by new companies. For example, Chelsea only has 20 million square feet, with only 4.2% currently vacant (this was 6.6% last year, but 2.4% was already leased). In addition, only 168,000 square feet is scheduled to be added this year. The combination of low inventory being taken quickly, with no new space coming on the market means options are lacking and pricing is going to keep going up.
