Even though cheap debt costs in commercial spaces can mean higher return on equity, the income side needs to stack up through healthy tenant numbers.
 

Delay in deals due to the delay in decision making for long term leases?

 

Contract terminations due to force majeure?

 

Occupiers deferring large space commitments and moving to coworking spaces?

 

Are occupiers considering a flex and core strategy?
