DCAS is responsible for identifying and leasing private space for City agency operations. DCAS’s objective is to negotiate timely, cost-effective leases that satisfy our client agency’s requirements, while conforming to the City’s requirements, policies, and procedures. This work is accomplished by in-house staff and by tenant representative brokers with whom DCAS has contracted. The City has a portfolio of approximately 380 leases/licenses for City agencies in privately owned properties, totaling over 22 million square feet. DCAS is responsible for negotiating these agreements, as well as renewals, intake and review of new requests, and ensuring compliance with lease terms.
The City leases a variety of space from private landlords and DCAS offers a running list of the City of New York's Private Space Needs. The list includes agencies with immediate needs for space and their requirements. For your convenience, if you click on the agency name in the first column, you will be directed to the agency’s website for information about the agency and its mission. You can also join our private space mailing list to get up-to-date information on our current space needs. DCAS is represented by an exclusive broker.
