The Workplace is Still Showing Signs of Life and Recovery in New York City

In a market full of uncertainty, there is a looming thought amongst many contrarians that the “office is dead”.  However, despite this belief, New York City has seen major momentum in office leasing during the course of 2021.  Though many new leases were inked by smaller/boutique tenants in prime/trophy office buildings (which is a testament to the flight to quality concept), a notable number of hedge funds, private equity firms, investment banks and FinTech companies have committed/relocated to and renewed for larger workspaces for the foreseeable future.

Below are the 30 Top Office Space Leases signed in NYC during 2021.
