California has bounced back from a period of sharply rising vacancies and declining rents, which, when accompanied by extremely tight credit markets, resulted in more defaults on commercial leases and loans. While some of these situations are still making their way through the system, the strengthening economy brings new types of business models into the market. For example, many new economy tenants want more workers in less space, 24-hour access to building services, and may use greater electrical and other building resources than in the past.
