A new CBD is rising for NY. It's needed, as most of the office space in NY is ancient and outdated.

Most of the office space in Midtown dates from the mid-century. It is not up to modern standards and current office trends. I believe I read that those cities have more modern office space, but if someone who knows more about it wants to chime in, please do.

I think you are the uninformed one here. Class A office space is actually a scarce in NYC. Companies leave their old buildings and flock to newly build ones. One of the key reasons for the east side rezoning is for new office towers to rise, and keep Manhattan competible. And JohnDee is right, a big part of the office stock here is from the lasts mid century boom and the boom that the former trade center caused.

There are a lot of office buildings in NYC from the 1930's, the most famous being 40 Wall Street, 30 Rock, Chrysler Building, ESB, and later from the 50's such as the Seagram Building and Lever House. Then later in the 70's the GM Building, the original WTC, the W.R Grace building and others such as 1095 Avenue of the Americas and the Solow Building, etc.

That being said there are a lot of new office buildings which have popped up since the late 2000's: NY Times Building, Bank of America Tower, 510 Madison Avenue, 4 WTC, 1WTC, 10HY, 3WTC just to name a few. There are also a lot on the way with 30 HY, 35 HY, 55 HY, 1 Manhattan West, One Vanderbilt, etc.

I wouldn't go as far as saying that class A office is scarce in NYC - or that the part of the office stock older than 50 years is that big...

The change is really more impressive on the Jersey side where all these yards have disappeared

Very curious to see how they are going to hang the iron for the outcrop. How many more floors until the bracing would be connected on the bottom? That’s going to be the most interesting thing about this building. In my opinion it damn near makes it a permanent icon. On par with 1-WTC... dare I say ESB. Mark my worlds countless movies will include scenes from that balcony in the years to come.

http://observer.com/2010/02/new-yorks-aging-buildings/ 7years old but still relevant to what I was saying as there hasn't been that many new office buildings completed since that time.

Quote:
The average larger midtown commercial building is 57 years old, nine years older than the president of the United States; the average midtown south one is a cheek-pinching 92; and downtown, it’s 63, according to data from CB Richard Ellis Research, based on buildings measuring over 75,000 square feet in midtown south and downtown, and over 150,000 square feet in midtown.
