The island of Manhattan is home to some of the most extraordinary commercial real estate in the world, but you’ve got to know where to look. That’s where we come in. With deep, well-rooted connections in Flatiron, Union Square and SoHo, Skylight continually uncovers some of the most sought-after, creative spaces in the city. We know where to find the rooftop decks, which buildings boast the slickest lobbies, where the ceilings are the highest, and which spaces are the brightest.
Whether you’re seeking a sublease in Soho, view of Madison Square Park or Balthazar proximity, floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors, or exposed brick archways, build-to-suit deals, or turn-key subleases, we’ll find it for you. And don’t think we accumulate this expertise by sitting behind our computers all day; we’re relentlessly combing the city to uncover the newest, most desirable, spaces for the companies with which we work. All of the pictures on this site were taken with our cameras. These are the properties we show to our clients. And what you see here is just the tip of the iceberg. At our core, Skylight Leasing is a tenant representation firm. We fight for every last inch on behalf of the tenants we represent, and we have no conflicts-of-interest because we don’t crossover to the landlord’s side.
Finding great space is only a portion of our work; securing it at favorable rents, obtaining free rent, options to expand or renew, and cash contributions for construction is of vital importance. And, over the years, we’ve fabricated a specialization in structuring amicable lease deals for companies with expansion on the horizon. Using our continually-updated analytical market data, we advise on negotiation tactics by formulating a strategy early on in the process. We help navigate the complexities of a lease transaction by understanding how each nuance of a lease can affect a tenancy. And we work collaboratively with clients’ attorneys, advisors and architects to achieve the most optimal outcome.
