Does the lease you signed have a provision about managerial approval or was it even executed by management at the time?
Normally the lease would not become valid until executed. Unfortunately it sounds as if you made a written proposal and it was rejected. This means no lease (contract) was formed. If you can show they acted deceptively and you relied on that deception to your detriment then you may be able to argue some form of justifiable reliance in order to mitigate certain costs of relocating, however it would be an uphill battle.
I know this isn't the answer you were hoping for... please reply if I can help further.
