The Metropolitan Corporate Counsel: Space Considerations And Lease Negotiations In A Down Market - Published Article -  03/11/2009

By: Mark E. Maltz and Brooke E. Richmond

The year 2008 marked a significant decline in office leasing activity with downward trends expected to persist through 2009, as evidenced by growing amounts of vacant space, a decrease in rental rates and an overflow of available sublease space. The commercial vacancy rate in Manhattan jumped from 7.9 percent in 2007 to 11.3 percent in 2008, with 2009 projections leaping to as much as 17 percent, which translates into approximately 15 million square feet of vacant space coming onto the market by the close of 2009.

New York Law Journal: Meeting Leasing Needs In a Down Market  - Published Article -  06/23/2008

By: Mark E. Maltz

Whether the economy is in great shape or gasping for air, tenants with leases soon to expire, and owners with vacant or soon to be vacant space, have decisions to make and actions to take. When the economy is churning along and business is good, the decisions confronting tenants typically are not whether to stay or go, but how high to trade up in the quality of the premises and building, how much the premises should grow, and how nice the new build-out should be. In good times, landlords do not have to work as hard to lease space and in many instances there are multiple third parties interested in the same available space, almost guarantying a quick and relatively effortless transaction.

Davis & Gilbert: New Impetus for Holdover Tenants to Move On?  - Published Article -  02/01/2007

By: Mark Maltz and Lisa Greenbaum

A recent court ruling in New York has established that holdover tenants in a commercial office building may be held liable for trespass to the incoming tenant. Tahari Ltd. occupied the 48th floor of the Grace Building at 1114 Avenue of the Americas per a sublease dated March 23, 1996 with W.R. Grace & Co. The sublease and the underlying lease between Grace and the owner of the building, Trizecahn-Swig, LLC, expired on May 31, 2003. In May 2003, Kronish Lieb Weiner & Hellman LLP, another tenant in the building, exercised an option to lease the 48th floor beginning June 1, 2003. Tahari stayed in the space beyond its sublease expiration date, so Kronish was unable to move in on June 1st. In March 2004, the New York County Supreme Court ordered Tahari to vacate the space, which Tahari appealed. Tahari lost the appeal and vacated the space on December 16, 2004 – over 18 months after its sublease had expired and Kronish was to move in.
