Postings_1CO2000A1217For two years in row, 1 World Trade Center scored among the city’s largest transaction, starting with 2011’s Condé Nast showstopper and following with last year’s 270,000-square-foot UGS deal. But in 2013, the buzz moved uptown when another marquee deal, L’Oreal’s 400,000-square-foot commitment to the Related Companies, stole the headlines at the new Hudson Yards development.

Last year was a relatively modest one compared to 2011 when it came to office leasing, but 2013 saw a significant rebound—the top 10 deals totaled more than 2.7 million square feet, a 50 percent increase year over year. Like 2012, a variety of sectors made the list, from financial services to law firms to the media and publishing industries.
