Don't hold your breath. IMO, we are going to go through a longer period of slow or no growth than many people realize. There is absolutely no demand for office space and the vacancy rate keeps climbing steadily. Likewise, there is a glut of unsold condos, there will be no hotel construction, retail is contracting, real estate prices are still decreasing in most areas and credit will not return to anything resembling normal for quite some time.
I'm a realist, not a doomsayer, but realize that there basically is no "schedule" now for many projects. Some of them may never materialize and will eventually be replaced by something else.
