Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lit

The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree was officially lighted for the season on November 30, as Mayor de Blasio, along with Alec Baldwin and Kate McKinnon, flipped the switch to illuminate the 50,000 multicolored lights adorning the 94-foot tree.

The Christmas tree will be on display at Rockefeller Center from 5:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. every day through January 7. The tree will remain lit for 24 hours on Christmas Day.

Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Arrives

The holiday season is beginning in New York City, as the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree arrived this weekend following a 170-mile journey from the upstate New York town of Oneonta. The 94-foot-tall Norway Spruce was donated by Graig and Angie Eichler, and arrived in Manhattan on November 14.

The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree is a New York City institution, with the tree first going up in 1931. Since then, the tree has become an iconic New York City tradition. This year’s tree is between 90 and 95 years old and weighs 14 tons, and it will be illuminated by 45,000 LED lights linked by 5 miles of wire.

The 84th Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony will take place during a live television broadcast on Wednesday, November 30. The tree will stay on display until January 7, when it will be milled into lumber to be used by Habitat for Humanity.

 

Real Estate Board of New York’s 120th Annual Banquet

In January, Rob Speyer spoke at the Real Estate Board of New York’s 120th Annual Banquet, where discussion focused on the city’s need for new developments that will foster continued economic growth and job creation.

“A new study by New York City Economic Development Corporation found that we need more office space — a lot more,” Speyer stated. “We’ve asked leading public and private sector experts to give their views on the state of the commercial real estate market, and what NYC needs to do to maintain our edge as a 21st century global economy.”

From 1960-1975, there were 169 new buildings that lent 110 million square feet in office space in New York City; from 2000-2015, only 35 new office buildings were built.

 “As a city, and as an industry, we are making great strides in expanding our commercial districts and modernizing our office inventory, but more work needs to be done,” said Speyer. “Even as Hudson Yards and the new World Trade Center reshaping our skyline, we must push ahead with Midtown East rezoning, and we must continue to nurture emerging commercial markets.”
