Estimated read time 3 min read

Median rents in New York City have hit record highs, and the demand for more luxury
rentals has been pressing on. Assa Properties has been a main contributor in alleviating the pressure for new luxury rental apartments in Manhattan.

Entities associated with Solly Assa, CEO of Assa Properties upscale Real estate owner
and Developer, has Refinanced Wells Fargo’s $35M Loan. The loan financed an upscale property just off Bryant Park and off 5th avenue at 70 W 45th St, with loans from HSBC Bank, InterAudi Bank, HAB Bank and CIBC Bank.

‘Solly Assa did a very good job with paying off the loan. Given the fact that
he had to coordinate with 5 lenders to get everyone on the same page.’

Median rents have reached historical highs in Manhattan, and this being due to the strong job market and low supply of rentals.

The Real Deal Realestate News mentioned that population growth has pushed New York rental property construction 10 years behind; REBNY’s head of planning, Basha Gerard told NY1. The report goes on to say boroughs like Brooklyn and Queens hit the second highest median rents ever on record. RentCafe calculated that New York promised to deliver the most new rental properties over any metro at 28,000. Yet it failed to satisfy demand. The new developments may relieve some of the pressure on supply, but not rents decline.

CNBC sources reported that rents have risen by 15% to $4,097 from last January; highest ever in January, Douglas Elliman and Miller Samuel. Average rent in Manhattan now sits at $5,142. Inventory remains low at 2.5% last month, below the 3% that is more typical for Manhattan. Experts and analysts do not expect rents to fall, because affluent participants in the market are still willing to pay soaring rates.

“1 in 5 luxury rentals led to a bidding war January 2023.”
