The number of large blocks of space in Midtown has grown rapidly since last fall as landlords and tenants with too much space have made available floors far faster than the market can absorb them. Tenants hunting in the Midtown market can choose from among 40 blocks of space larger than 100,000 square feet. That’s a 38 percent increase from November 2011, when there were only 29, and that followed several months of declines in large blocks of space.
