FiDi is seeing it’s best mid-year lease numbers in nearly 20 years

FiDi landlords are celebrating the area’s biggest mid-year office leasing total since 2000 — about 3.8 million square feet, according to new data from CBRE reported by the New York City Downtown Alliance.

Among the highlights:

  • Relocations to FiDi from uptown accounted for 23 percent of all second-quarter leasing, including four large moves from Midtown South.
  • The bulk of the leasing involved two giant deals at 55 Water St., including Justworks’ move from the Starrett-Lehigh Building to 270,000 square feet at 55 Water.
  • Overall average asking rent increased slightly — by 0.2 percent, to $63.40 per square foot, according to Cushman & Wakefield. The discount over Midtown’s average of $76.56 was one driver of the downtown boom.
