Manhattan’s extended recovery is expected to be aided by massive new neighborhood developments, a strong national economy, and, by extension, the wide array of leisure, commercial, and meeting and group demand generators in the borough. The chief hindrance to an accelerated recovery is the current supply pipeline through 2018 and its negative effect on average rate in the market, as has been demonstrated in recent history; however, supply growth is anticipated to slow beginning in 2019, tapering off significantly thereafter.
