  1. Slow week. I wonder if the bubble is about to pop. I’m hearing of high vacancy rates in some of the completed larger projects.

    • Oregon Square was cut in half and even that looks iffy right now. Yes, we need new housing, but how many $3,000 a month apartments and $300 a night hotel rooms can we absorb?
