What is it with large companies taking or building office space then a few years later saying we have to move.........why don't they have a bit of foresight and build a building big enough to lease out the extra space then take it back as they need it...? How many times do you want to pack up your desk ?

You wouldn't rent a bigger house because your family might double in four or five years. You get what you can afford at the time. Look at sear they built the sears tower and we all know how that turned out.

Most companies don't move because they have grown, more because they just want a newer building....

Such a brisk pace- now only if this was 5 years ago, like should have been!
Of course, it will stall eventually.
