What does store (retail) space go for in New York City?
Manhattan is the second priciest place to lease a store in the world, right after Hong Kong. The average store here leases for $116.00 a square foot, but according to the 11/16/16 New York Post, retail space prices are going down...Landlords should not worry too much, though, as with more than 54 million visitors to the city every year, retail here should continue to thrive. 
Fall / Winter 2017 retail pricing:
Prime Fifth Avenue: Average asking per square foot $3,484 (RD 2017 DB). The top retail deal in 2015 was for Swatch, which paid $35 million per year for 14,700 square feet on 54th and Fifth ($2,380 per square foot). The most expensive lease to date for 2016 is the Bulgari 730 Fith space, which proportedly went for an astounding $5,500 per square foot....but there may have been build out concessions of up to $1,000 a square foot, as was purportedly done for Coach (TTD 7/16).

 The average price for a New York retail condominium is $3,019 per square foot (meaning the store space is purchased by the user and not rented...but one would still need to pay monthly expenses and taxes). A record number was reported in January, 2016 for Chanel's 4,500 139 Spring Street space, which sold for an astounding $112 million, which ends up being $24,888.00 a square foot (NYP, 1/19/16).
