Flatiron/NoMad Commercial Market Showing Signs of Rebound

The Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership has released its Flatiron Quarterly Market Snapshot: Q1 2021, looking at real estate and economic data, news, and trends in Flatiron and NoMad from January through March 2021. The report shows a district in the early stages of recovery from the severe impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Highlights from the report include an increase in the number of commercial office leases from the low-water mark in Q3 2020, including two signings securing nearly 200,00 square feet combined; numerous national and local retail concepts opening or publicly announcing investments in the neighborhood; and foot traffic approaching 50% of pre-pandemic levels.
“The impact that the pandemic has had on central business districts in Manhattan cannot be overstated, but we’re encouraged by signs of recovery in Flatiron and NoMad,” said James Mettham, executive director of the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership.
