What to Expect When Seeking Long Island Office Space

When you consider Long Island, you'll find that you have a choice of four counties in which to base your new office: Kings, Queens, Suffolk, and Nassau. Along with some potential differences in county-based taxation and regulation, there are some differentiating factors when it comes to the culture and general atmosphere. Kings and Queens counties provide experiences much like mainland New York City, and they can be considered extensions of the boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens, respectively. The Nassau and Suffolk County areas, on the other hand, are more suburban.

How Big is Long Island?

As its name implies, this island is long and relatively narrow. It runs 118 miles from end to end, but only 23 miles across. This gives it plenty of space for full buildup, and it is very populated. In fact, more than half of the residents of New York City live here. The Island also has several smaller "barrier islands" around it, though these are not nearly as economically notable.

Nine bridges and 13 tunnels connect Long Island to the rest of New York City. This gives commuters plenty of opportunities to get off without much logistical hassle, though the level of population makes it so that many prefer to use public transportation for commuting rather than drive their own cars.

An Overview of Long Island and its History

The first European settlement here was English, but the Dutch followed soon after. This ended up with an English eastern half and a Dutch western portion. The jurisdiction split basically at the borders of what are now Nassau and Suffolk counties. Around this time, there were some skirmishes between the two, with the Dutch driving the English out of one of the settlements. In 1664, the English came back and not only drove the Dutch out of that country's New Netherland holding, but took over the entirety of Long Island along with it.

Originally, part of Long Island was considered a Connecticut territory. However, after threats from the governor of the Dominion of New England, its residents agreed to become part of New York State.

During the American Revolutionary War, England quickly gained control of Long Island, sending the rebels fleeing and leaving the area populated almost entirely by loyalists. For this reason, the Island was an English stronghold until the end of the war. This, however, gave George Washington an easy target for espionage. The American leader gained much information in this manner.

More Recently

During the 20th century, Long Island became a center for aviation. This started with Charles Lindbergh's historic solo flight to Europe, and continued on through the space age thanks to the presence of companies like Grumman. The island also gained many residents, and suburbs built up during the mid-century years. Housing development boomed after WWII thanks to the GI Bill.

During the 21st century, companies have transitioned from industrial to post-industrial activities. After decades of declining population, Long Island has resurfaced as a fertile ground for intellectual and cultural pursuits. Due to gentrification, there has been a large population shift within New York City, and areas once known as defunct shipbuilding and mill towns have been remodeled into shopping and cultural centers.

An Overview of the Leasing Landscape on Long Island

Reports on Long Island vacancy rates are mixed, with CBRE reporting a negative net absorption in the third quarter while Cushman and Wakefield say that vacancy rates are dropping. This likely indicates that performance is fairly even, with no strong trend either way. That said, CBRE expects a rebound in activity thanks to projects that will be coming online in the near future.

According to CBRE, movement by large tenants caused some significant space to become available. This was especially true in the Nassau County portion of Long Island, where 185,000 square feet became vacant. Suffolk County, on the other hand, saw 31,000 square feet get snapped up, giving that area positive absorption. Rent overall is stable, and Cushman and Wakefield report that it is averaging $29.78 per square foot across the Island as a whole.

One of the biggest dampers on leasing activity in Long Island, say Cushman and Wakefield, is a lack of large blocks of office space. This is making the area unsuitable for big companies that need to have room for thousands of employees. This, however, may mean that there are more opportunities for smaller companies to move in. The Class B market made up 52.4 percent of third quarter totals, indicating a strong small business sector.

Notable Transactions and Developments

- Martin Clearwater & Bell's renewal of its ~13,000 square foot office space was combined with an expansion at the same location to gobble up some of the remaining large-block leased property. This helped drive Central Nassau to a position of strong positive net absorption.

- 1985 Marcus Avenue in Lake Success came online, and this added 135,000 square feet of available space to the Western Nassau submarket.

- Western Suffolk and Central Nassau both gained mid-sized Class A availability, raising it about a percentage point compared to last quarter. Despite this, CBRE considers them to be running almost at equilibrium.

Currently, Long Island offers many opportunities for small and mid-sized businesses to move in and gain access to New York City's robust population, infrastructure, and opportunities for international trade. Large companies, however, may find that they need more space than Long Island currently offers. It is reasonable to expect that the largest spaces will be leasing for a premium thanks to their relative lack of supply, while small offices will be able to get better deals.
