By all means, you should take the depreciation now.
Do you have other properties? You can use this loss to offset future income.
The IRS will recapture the depreciation you should have taken even if you didn't take any, so the bottom line is: You need to take the Depreciation deduction.

I even segment my depreciation to accelerate the deductions... can't imagine why anyone would choose not to.
