Going with B

in A
vacancy rates in existing structures that are exceptionally high and no demand for new construction

"no demand for new construction" does not go with vacancy rates

I'd also go with B. Breaking it up to despite x...and...y, despite...no demand isn't correct. even though is better.

(A) 'investing' -> progressive not required

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

(C) 'high vacancy rates in existing structures with no demand for new construction' lacks clarity --> makes it sound like a type of special building

(D) same as A

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

Between B and E, I go with B. E is lengthy.

Between A & B. B seems to be better..Reasons:

a) That refers to Structures and creates an Ambiguity.

Only reason I see B to be wrong is "Capital Invenstment" as Capital Invenstment and Investing Capital can have too meaning..

Give me B.

All relative pronouns (that, which, who, what, where, etc) modify the closest noun.

1.In A and E, that wrongly modfies structures. It is the vacancy rates that are high, not the structures.

C and D sound like the vacancy rates are high for structures that have no new demand for construction. In other words, they change the meaning of the sentence.

B remains.
