Guide to renting a serviced office in New York

"New York, New York, it's a hell of a town!"

So the song goes – and for when it comes to offices , it's true.

The most populous city in the USA, the Big Apple is one of the world's top cities for real estate, finance, business and technology. All of those combined make it a hotspot for commercial property.

Companies come from all over the planet to join the flurry of office renting, hoping to secure their own piece of the Big Apple to claim as their own: by being based in New York, the coolest city in the world, they can be cool by association.

As a result, the population of the city is always on the up, with over 18 million people into New York City of varying nationalities. Indeed, 800 languages are spoken in New York, a sign of its incredibly diverse workforce and population.

Equally diverse are the range of employees hiring them. From old companies relying on the port as their source of trade to modern technology firms and financial corporations driving the economy, the city has evolved with the times, ensuring that it is always relevant to the global markets.

Indeed, Manhattan is home to the headquarters of companies in all the industries. In the media, Time Warner, the Thomson Reuters Corporation, NBCUniversal and others; in sports, the National Football League and Major League Baseball; in finance, Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange lead the world, while 45 of the Fortune 500 companies all have their central base in the city.

With such high demand for residential and commercial property, it is no surprise that real estate is an equally major force, with New York City property's total value in 2006 worth over $800 million. As more companies continue to flock to the city and rent out New York offices , that figure is only set to keep climbing.
