 World Trade Center Tenants Leave Lower Manhattan   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)

Before the attack on the World Trade Center, availability rates were 9.05% in Midtown, 7.60% in Downtown, and an overall 8.67% in Manhattan.
Given that tenants representing 82% of the square footage occupied by larger tenants of the destroyed and damaged properties have reported a destination, it is possible to project the effect that the dislocation of all tenants into permanent locations will have over the next twelve-month period.
