The Baltimore Business Journal recently published an article announcing the lease of 3,500 square-feet of space at 200 St. Paul Place, in Baltimore, Md.
The space, on the ground floor of the 28-story St. Paul Place office building, would make a prime location for another bank or credit union branch, or a specialty retailer, said Rene Daniel, a principal at Trout Daniel. Daniel is also pitching the two-level space as a good site for a service provider, such as a computer data center.

Making the jump to a new space or starting from scratch can be very stressful. There are so many factors to consider, and oftentimes the final decision can hinder on things you never even thought of or planned for.

There are 43,560 square feet in one acre. If I have seven acres of land, that would equal 304,920 square feet. To find our square feet number, we simply multiply the number of acres (in this case, that number is seven) by 43,560:
So now let’s say I know I have 304,920-square-feet of space and want to figure out how many acres that is equal to. All we need to do is divide the number of square feet (304,920) by 43,560 to find out how many acres we have (seven)
Not in the … Read More »
