The vacancy rate of the southern city’s Grade-A offices climbed up to 21.3% at the end of June, up 0.7 percentage points from a quarter earlier and 0.8 percentage points from the end of December, according to a report released Wednesday by real estate services company Jones Lang LaSalle Inc. (JLL).
