Office vacancies in the Baltimore area climbed to the highest level in at least 15 years in 2009, when demand for space fell as businesses scaled back or put expansions on hold. And industry insiders warn that commercial foreclosures will likely rise in the coming months. About one-fifth of the city's office space is vacant. The vacancy rate rose to 18.8 percent in the fourth quarter, a sharp increase from 12 percent at the end of 2008 - and higher than during the last recession in 2001, according to Cushman & Wakefield, a top commercial real estate firm in Baltimore.
