December 5, 2019

The discrepancy might be small potatoes compared to the 10 million expected to hit the city in time to see the Olympic torch light up in National Stadium launching the games July 24. But in a city on an island that’s compact enough as it is, vacancy space is at a luxury according to The Travel.
