General University Area Updates and Rumours
There is no way to track such units. But not many people would want to keep units empty: you still need to pay the mortgage, pay the condo fees, pay the insurance and pay the property taxes.  Definitely not profitable.

Certainly this is the case for rental condos (which is what nms mentioned), but I do think there is a potential for a loss of rental units from the market in things like converted basements, or second rooms.  I doubt it's happened yet, because the market and prices are still strong but it could happen eventually.

Some of those rooms have moved to AirBNB and HomeAway ...

Raytheon also looks like it is in negotiations to sell their property and significantly downsize their local foot print.

Raytheon has completed their move from 400 Phillip to right next door at 440 Phillip,  into part of the former RIM 14 complex.

It looks like there are a lot of deals going on with properties on this stretch of Phillip. Would be nice to see some new tenants moving in, there is still much empty space post-Blackberry.
