With demand steadily rising in this market segment, a number of prominent NYC brokers have shifted their attention to office condos.

New York, NY - September 20, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —

New York City is known as the best place for entertainment, cultural events, and education. Its business and commerce sector are often mentioned, and Wall Street is the core of the financial industry in US. The city is also the base of numerous large corporations. With leading financial, communications, technology, and media companies choosing NYC as their base of operation, real estate has logically emerged as a major driver of the local economy. According to the Department of Finance, the total market value of New York properties was about $1.072 trillion in fiscal 2017, or 10.6% higher compared to 2016. Recently, there has been a considerable increase in demand for office condominiums, especially in Manhattan, which is set to witness its highest influx of new office supply since the mid-1980s, comments New York-based property expert and CEO of Frydco Capital Group Jacob Frydman.

With demand steadily rising in this market segment, a number of prominent NYC brokers have shifted their attention to office condos. "When you look at the market, you see sales falling for office, retail and residential. But commercial condos are a different story. We're projecting that segment of the market to grow," Cushman & Wakefield’s James Nelson said in an interview in 2017. As Jacob Frydman explains, rising rents in New York are largely responsible for the surge of interest in office condos. They allow enterprises to lock in their occupancy expenses, thus shielding themselves from future rent increases. Moreover, the properties appreciate in value, presenting opportunities from an investment perspective.

Recent data demonstrates the strength of the office condo market in New York, one of the latest publications coming from Rudder Property Group (RPG). According to its report for the first half of 2018, the period finished at near-record levels with regard to total square footage sold and total sales value, which reached $237 million. Notably, the market delivered its best performance to date in terms of average price per square foot, which jumped to $934, or 23% higher compared to the five-year average of $758. Commenting on the results in an interview, RPG principal Michael Rudder stated, “ The office market remains very strong. Office condominium purchasers are looking to avoid paying high rents and to reap the long-term benefits of Manhattan real estate ownership.”

Oct 20, 2019

SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea said Thursday it's unclear if North Korea will allow a live broadcast when it hosts the South's national soccer team for a World Cup qualifier in Pyongyang next Tuesday. Seoul's Unification Ministry, which deals with inter-Korean affairs, said the North has been ignoring South Korean calls for discussions on broadcasting the game live and allowing South Korean spectators to attend.

Pell's appeal pitted word of former choirboy against priest

Oct 20, 2019

CANBERRA, Australia — Cardinal George Pell's appeal against his convictions for child molestation was largely a question of who the jury should have believed, his accuser or a senior priest whose church role was likened to Pell's bodyguard. Pell's accuser was a 13-year-old choirboy when he alleged that he was abused by then-Melbourne Archbishop Pell at the city's St. Patrick's Cathedral in December 1996 and February 1997. Monsignor Charles Portelli was a master of ceremonies at the 11 a.m. Sunday Masses where the choir sang. A chorister in the 1990s, David Dearing, told police that Portelli, Pell's right-hand man, was...

HONG KONG — At least eight pop stars from mainland China and one each from Taiwan and Hong Kong are publicly stating their support for Beijing's one-China policy, eliciting a mixture of disappointment and understanding from fans.

China bans movies, actors from prominent Taiwan film awards

Oct 20, 2019

BEIJING — China said Wednesday it was banning Chinese movies and actors from participating in Taiwan's Golden Horse Awards, one of the Asian film industry's most prestigious honors, as Beijing ramps up economic and political pressure on the island it claims as its own territory. The one-sentence announcement on the microblog of China Film News, a newspaper affiliated with government film regulator, gave no reason for the suspension, but it comes amid rising tensions over Taiwan's refusal to recognize being part of Chinese territory to eventually be brought under Beijing's rule. Even without the ban, Chinese artists might have found...
