Luxury Office Space in the Plaza District
Luxury Office Space in the Plaza District continues to be leased by financial firms, although at slower rate than TAMI companies are signing for creative units in Midtown South and Lower Manhattan. According to Costar, the Commercial Real Estate Information Company, Plaza District Rents increased from an average of $69.93 PSF at year’s end 2014, to $70.36 PSF in Q1 2015. However, in the more exclusive buildings contract rents range from $90 to $175 PSF. As a rule of thumb less expensive rents are found in older buildings with side street entrances.
