TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 8, 2008) - TREB Members reported 1,108,430 square feet of space leased through the TorontoMLS system, up four per cent over April of 2007, Commercial Council Chair Garry Lander announced today. "This figure is also up 19 per cent over the March figure of 933,299, and in fact makes April's the best monthly performance of 2008."

In April, the price for Industrial space (all size categories) declined six per cent to $5.43 sfn from last April's figure of $5.76 sfn. Commercial space (all size categories) averaged $14.91 sfn, down nine per cent from last April's $16.41 sfn.
