THE SUBURBAN COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE BUST IS KIDDIE PARADISE With the tens of millions of square feet of vacant commercial real estate lining our roadways out in the ‘burbs, I am seeing a glut of “bounce houses.” Combine free or reduced rents, low start-up costs and thousands of laid-off middle and upper management types reaching career endpoints due to layoffs, I think we are experiencing a new economic bubble.” [Lou Minatti] Photo: Monkey Joe’s

    When this is part of the full half, it’s hard to call it “half full”.
