PowerPoint Presentation

  • A number of large leases enabled the financial services sector to solidify its place in the top spot in terms of leasing activity YTD.
  • Despite stagnant employment growth and increased regulation, the sector—long dominant in office leasing—captured almost one-third of YTD leasing activity compared with 21.7 percent over the same period in 2013.
  • Legal services, historically second in market share, fell to fourth place, allowing the growing media sector to inch ahead.
