The Real Deal March 31, 2011 Office rents and absorption will rise over the next two years in urban and suburban business districts, according to Cushman & Wakefield's office market forecast released today. Though office rents remain low in the U.S., the report determined that a lack of new supply coupled with rising demand will force rents upward in half of all central business districts - or urban business centers - by 2013. And while 2010 saw just 2.2 million square feet absorbed in cities, by 2012 that number should grow more than six-fold to 13.9 million square feet. New York City will lead the charge, along with Washington D.C., Boston, Seattle and Chicago, as those areas will combine to account for nearly two-thirds of that space. Suburban office vacancies will also decline between now and 2013, but at a slower rate than those of central business districts. Almost half of all suburban markets will see office rent declines between now and 2013, and five areas - including Miami - will see office rents dip below 2010 bottoms.Boston Office Space , Chicago Office Space , Manhattan Office Space , Miami Office Space , New York Office Space , Office Vacancy Rate , Seattle Office Space , Washington DC Office Space

Despite having found 8,000 empty desks the City of New York will be forced to rent 582,000 square feet of office space in Building 4 of the World Trade Center when it is completed in 2014. The empty desks can be used to estimate that the City has over 1,000,000 square feet of excess office space, also know as shadow office space. The question is will they actually occupy it or sublease the prime office space. Their contract price is $56.50 / sf. The timing could be good for the come-back of the Manhattan office space market as the recession continues to improve. Source
