(A) so abundant has capital been for commercial real estate that

(C) the abundance of capital for commercial real estate has been such,
(D) such has the abundance of capital been for commercial real estate that

An array of tax incentives has led to a boom in the construction of new office buildings; (so abundant has capital been for commercial real estate that) investors regularly scour the country for areas in which to build.

(A) so abundant has capital been for commercial real estate that
(B) capital has been so abundant for commercial real estate, so that
(C) the abundance of capital for commercial real estate has been such,
(D) such has the abundance of capital been for commercial real estate that
(E) such has been an abundance of capital for commercial real estate,

I would stick with A between all of the choices.
B doesn't work b/c of the "..., so that" doesn't fit.
C doesn't work b/c it needs "that" after such
D doesn't work b/c "such has the abundance of capital been..." is awkward and wordy (at least more so than option A)
E doesn't work b/c it needs "that" to continue the sentence.

I think A is correct, it's simple and to the point. A is not cluttered with fluffy words.

"such" should be used for examples, I don't think the sentences that follow the word "such" present as an example
