Use "sublease" in a sentence
"The amount of sublease space in a market can affect the extent to which landlords can push up rents, because their "direct" space is competing with short-term sublease space that is often much cheaper, and tenants have more bargaining power."
"That has pushed the so-called sublease space available up to 1.8 million square feet in the second quarter from about one-third that amount a year earlier."
"& Co. and Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. have put huge chunks of office space on the so-called sublease market, which adds to supply and depresses prices."
