Office building vacancies remain elevated, especially in coastal cities. Lenders worry about developers’ ability to pay back their debt.

Office occupancy remains low in cities like New York and San Francisco, while places like Columbus, Ohio, are nearly back to pre-pandemic levels.
Restaurants, hotels and even retail outlets have grabbed a business opportunity to attract remote workers with their space.
