According to commercial (office space) real estate specialists, the healthy vacancy rate, that is the most balanced vacancy rate for both the landlords and the tenants, is around 8%. Anything less than 5% is landlord's market - they can ask for higher rates. More than 10% is tenants market - tenants can ask for lower rates or benefits such as better interior finishes, etc.

High vacancy rate is not a bad thing for many people, it keep the prices low.
In my country's capital (in Europe) is a shortage of ~12.000 office spaces (a 2 milion people city).
But because strong NIMBY movement, and I suspect even a "conspiracy" to keep the rent high, no skyscraper get built.

Thank You

Congratulations to China for this beautiful iconic landmark. I think this is just the beginning for China--we can expect to see many more amazing skyscrapers in the coming years.

And another round of applause to all the SSC members who brought this project to life for those who coudn't see it in real life. You have been updating all of us on the progress of this magnificent project since it was in its infancy. I followed the construction ardently and I thank all the pioneers on this forum who have worked tirelessly to maintain a constant stream of updates. I LOVE YOU

Just a couple questions?
How high exactly are the observation decks? And how much does it cost to get in? I wish to someday see this building in real life.

Thanks

Crowded observatories as seen from outside

As we can see, most of the missing or damaged cladding parts are replaced, and the facade is almost entirely cleaned.
Here's the end of a beautiful story

I think the design change from the circular hole to the rectangular hole was a preety good decision.

Isn't the hole technically a trapezium hole?

it fits proportionally well with the long V shape comming from bottom and all the way upto the rooftop of the tower.

Is there any other ob deck in the world where the window leans outward from where people stand so people can see whats below them better?

That building looks like it has a big tv screen at the top of it.

I have yet to see really good photos from the observation deck (of the inside or the view from it).

XiaoBai, time to do your job!
