Last year saw significant leasing activity in the Baltimore-area industrial real estate market, which drove overall vacancy rates down to about 8 percent at the end of 2013 from almost 10 percent at the end of 2012, according to a report by Cushman & Wakefield. Direct asking rents also rose about 11 percent, year-over-year.
Major deals announced last year included plans for distribution centers for Sephora, Clorox and Amazon.
