Between A and B, I pick A
B is wrong because Encourage capital investment in commercial office building makes it sound as if capital investment must take place in the â€œinsideâ€

I would choose B. Only because it corrects mistake in A.
A is incorrect because, the phrase
".....high and no demand for new construction" lacks verb and thus incomplete.

I thought "," is requires before "and" when "and" connects a separate clause.

(A) investing capital in commercial office buildings despite vacancy rates in existing structures that are exceptionally high and

---> "despite" is too strong + "structures that are extremely high" is passive/wordy

(B) capital investment in commercial office buildings, even though vacancy rates in existing structures are exceptionally high and there is

(C) capital to be invested in commercial office buildings even though there are exceptionally high vacancy rates in existing structures with

---> "capital to be invested" is not an economical choice of words. "capital investment" is required

(D) investing capital in commercial office buildings even though the vacancy rates are exceptionally high in existing structures with

--->"encourage + v~ing" is usually incorrect in GMAT English

(E) capital investment in commercial office buildings despite vacancy rates in existing structures that are exceptionally high, and although there is

--->same as A. "and although there.." is a clumsy construction

Whatever the source, keep posting such thought provoking SCs

In both C and D, the "with" incorrectly modifies existing structures.
"exceptionally high vacancy rates in existing structures with no demand for new construction"

E is wordy.
