Vanns Spices, a privately owned company based in Baltimore, has added 6,000 square feet to its warehouse space and hired five workers as part of an expansion plan made possible by improved tracking and planning, company president Mick Whitlock said. The company expects a 15 percent increase in profits over the next year. Founded in 1981 by an art teacher who had started mixing and selling spices, it at times struggled to meet demand for custom-blend spices sent to New York restaurants.

The numbers say that the market for warehouse space in the corridor between Baltimore and Washington didn't change much in 1993. But the numbers mask longer-term changes in the way the warehouse real-estate business is done and the size and function of warehouses that will be developed in years to come.The numbers say that 17.6 percent of warehouse space in Anne Arundel and Howard counties is available, the same as 12 months ago, according to a report from CB Commercial Real Estate Services Inc. Vacancies have risen to 12.6 percent, from 9 percent last year, because tenants at some buildings had given notice that they were moving out -- making their landlords put the space on the market -- without actually moving until this year.

In addition, Story said, the county is likely to gain a corporate headquarters moving from another county, though he would not identify the company.

The Howard County Council approved yesterday a bold economic development bid, agreeing to buy the aging Columbia headquarters of AlliedSignal Technical Services Corp. for $7.5 million.The deal, proposed by County Executive Charles I. Ecker, nearly unraveled in recent days in the face of opposition from Council Chairman Dennis R. Schrader, who called it a bad deal for taxpayers."If the private sector can buy this building for $7.5 million, then we should leave it on the tax rolls," said Schrader, a North Laurel Republican who proposed paying only $6 million.
