    Financial District

    The Financial District, nicknamed FiDi, is widely considered the leading financial center of the world. Financial District office space houses many of New York City’s financial institutions–banks, insurance companies and other large corporations–such as the New York Stock Exchange (the world’s largest stock exchange by market capitalization) and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

    Giants such as Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank and American Express already work out of the Financial District, as do many startups and mature mid-size firms. Given the available inventory, accessibility via public transit, and low asking rents, the Financial District has appeal to a range of businesses inside and outside the financial services world.

    Financial District Office Space | Lease Data & Trends

    FiDi has some of the most affordable office space in the city. On average, Financial District office rent comes out to $64 per square foot in Class A buildings, and $51 per square foot in Class B buildings. These are significantly cheaper than average asking rents in popular neighborhoods such as Flatiron District, Plaza District, Hudson Square, Chelsea, and SoHo. With a vacancy rate of 12.3%, above the city average of 10%, and more than 100 million square feet of office space in the Lower Manhattan sub-market, there’s plenty of options for businesses to choose from.

    The neighborhood is perhaps best known for Wall Street, where workers earn 21.9 percent of wages of all of New York City. Geographically, Wall Street is an eight-block-long street located between Broadway and South Street. People tend to use the term “Wall Street” to discuss the United States’ financial markets and industries overall. In addition to NYSE, several other major exchanges have or had headquarters in FiDi. These include NASDAQ, New York Mercantile Exchange, New York Board of Trade, and the former American Stock Exchange.

    The Financial District is also famous for its concentration of skyscrapers. The area boasts more than a dozen standing taller than 630 feet. These include but are not limited to: One World Trade Center (the largest building in the western hemisphere), 3 World Trade Center, 4 World Trade Center, 40 Wall Street, 28 Liberty Street, 50 West Street, One Liberty Plaza, 20 Exchange Place, 200 Vesey Street, 225 Liberty Street, and 1 New York Plaza.
