Two subsidiaries of Stanley Pearlman Enterprises plan to move into their own facility next year, a new 88,000-square-food seafood distribution facility in Jessup. The companies, NAFCO and Congressional Seafood Co., process and distribute seafood on the the East Coast, with delivery to supermarkets and restaurants respectively. In the last five years, both companies have grown, with Congressional's customer base expanding from 200 to more than 300 clients, creating a need for more space, said Congressional Seafood spokeswoman Kelly Morris.

Editorial from The Aegis | March 25, 2014
Ready access to clean water for drinking, cooking and bathing is generally regarded as one of the advancements in human history that made civilization possible. In modern times, places with no running water or indoor plumbing are regarded as rustic, if they are vacation destinations, or destitute if they are places people are more interested in getting away from than going to. With this in mind, the measure before the Harford County Council that would reduce to a half acre the amount of land that needs to be on hand for new homes to be built without access to public water and sewer systems has the potential to become a step in the direction of becoming a Third World territory.

A 10,000-square-foot house. Say that to yourself a couple of times, just to let it sink in. The average square footage of a new American house is 2,300, and there are plenty of 4,000- and 5,000-square-foot residences overwhelming their undersize lots. But 10,000 square feet? (Actually, 9,842 square feet air-conditioned; 13,035 total, including outdoor living space.) Here's the best way to describe it: You invite a couple of hundred people to a party, and the house is so spacious that someone can find a room to be alone in for five minutes.

The size of a high-end business park set to be built on the site of the former David Taylor Research Center in Annapolis has been scaled back considerably as part of a negotiated compromise that Anne Arundel County officials hope will calm vocal opponents. "From the beginning, everyone has talked about the size of this facility," County Executive Janet S. Owens said Friday, referring to residents' worries that a high-tech campus could overwhelm a fragile environment and crowded roads. Owens said that the decision to drop 100,000 square feet from building plans represents a significant accommodation by Annapolis Partners, a team of developers that includes local businessman Maurice B. Tose and Mesirow Stein Real Estate Inc. of Chicago.

CHAUTAUQUA, N.Y. - In the unyielding world of the Old Order Amish, very little changes, not the horse and buggy they ride in, not the capes and bonnets they wear. The Amish home, too, remains a bulwark of simplicity and modesty. Religious tradition in this community in western New York, conservative even by Amish standards, dictates everything from the plumbing (gravity fed, cold water only) to the oil lamps used in place of electricity (kerosene) to the size of window openings (5 square feet)

In the late 1960s, art grew bigger and bigger, marching off the easel and out of the studio, forming series of paintings that spun out toward infinity and sculptures that burst beyond even institutional walls. Many of these gargantuan works were either too logistically daunting or needed too much real estate to be displayed more than once or twice, so they were dismantled and stored, often for decades. Now, the Dia Art Foundation has amassed enough square footage to show its collection of mammoth art. By converting a former Nabisco box-printing factory in Beacon, N.Y., Dia has created an art cloister on the Hudson.

When a former canning plant was transformed in the late 1990s into a commercial hub to anchor Canton's redevelopment, middle school students suggested its name reflect history: The Can Company. The shopping center is about to get a new name — one that gives a nod to both the past and the future. Mobile advertising company Millennial Media is planning a major expansion at its Southeast Baltimore headquarters, one that company leaders say will align its home base with its status as a public company competing internationally, and as a major local employer.

The saying goes that a man's house is his castle. Well, the trend that is beginning to evolve is that a home should be built to the size of a castle. Bigger rooms. More space. Higher ceilings. Larger homes. All on smaller lots. That was one of the findings of a forecast describing "The Next Decade for Housing" released last month by the National Association of Home Builders. It is a trend not lost on local homebuilders in the Baltimore area. In addition to the ever-expanding home, the forecast, put together by NAHB's economics, mortgage and finance and policy divisions, also gave a number of predictions concerning American housing for the next decade.
