Roughly 27.3 million square feet of office space was leased during the year, the lowest level of activity since the depths of the last recession in 2009, when 24.4 million square feet was taken by tenants.

Tenants have held off on committing to office space as the business environment has become less certain after a contentious election cycle and global events like Brexit, The Journal said. For the complete story link HERE.

7 billion-dollar mega-projects that will transform New York City by 2035

By Leanna Garfield

New York City has a number of ambitious development and infrastructure projects underway.

Manhattan’s most recent transportation upgrade came in the form of the glistening, $4.5 billion Second Avenue subway line, which opened on January 1.

On the other side of the island, Hudson Yards — the most expensive real estate development in American history — is under construction. And on an island in the East River, Cornell University is building a glassy tech campus with classrooms, a hotel, restaurants, and shops for future graduate students. By the middle of this century, the city will look different, and will likely attract even more new residents and tourists than today.

From Manhattan to Brooklyn, here is a look at some of the most substantial projects set to be completed in the next two decades. For the complete story link HERE.
