Pier One Imports, Inc. leased almost 350,000square feet in Aberdeen, adding to the more than 800,000 square feetleased by U.S. Lumber Company and Kenco in the first quarter.Unfortunately, the Pier One lease was significantly offset by negativeabsorption in the Baltimore City East and Baltimore County Eastsubmarkets.
