Top Firms

We solicited key data from 56 firms that examines project development over the past 12 months in the five boroughs. We also asked about on-the-boards projects going forward. Even though this is only our third go-round, we're already seeing some trends—and will no doubt illuminate more as we accumulate more years of data (yes, numbers can also be fun).

Bottom line: Our top firms reported 579 jobs completed at a total of 64 million square feet.
