Yeah, my understanding is that commercial leases can be quite long, so landlords prefer to hold out for the perfect tenant rather than get "stuck" with a suboptimal tenant.

Bishop is going to be great someday. The Governor is supposed to start next year, and then I think there are plans to retrofit 1360 Lower Water with a few extra floors and an exterior that's more suited to downtown rather than Clayton Park. Lower Bishop has been a construction zone for 4+ years now, and looks like it'll continue to be for a number of years to come. But it'll be worth it in the end.
