Filling a Skyscraper [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 9 May 1914

Filling a Skyscraper It is a great deal easier to build a skyscraper, even a very big one, than it is to fill it with tenants. That calls for a different kind of talent. And it is harder still to fill it without making the expected con cessions for long-time leases. Price cunting in rentals may make as deep inroads on profits and dividends as vacant offices will do. Price main tenence is as much a necessity, or, at any rate, a desideratum in the business of rouenting, as it is ia any trade-marked or branded proposition sold through dealers, It Is for the sake of both of these objects, filling them at the right rental, that the new Equitable Building started to adverdse 16 months ahead of completion (says "Printer's Ink") while ttb new Equitable will be the largest offiTh' building in world, the directors are too wise to beliive that by itself that will prove a sufficiently strong advertising card, They have started 16 months ahead of time to spend £30,000, a very much larger sum tha...
