Granted, vacancies have only fallen by 20 bps since the start of the year, but don't forget: the economy only grew by 0.7% in the first half. “Recovery has been slow, but please, let's not cry a river,” Victor says. (Our tear ducts simply can't handle that volume of water.) “We expected any rebound from this recession to be a slow, tough slog.” Of course, things got rockier in August, after the debt ceiling debacle, the S&P downgrade, and zero job growth. We'll see if office buildings continue to post decent numbers next month.
