Post-incubator digs: No. 6 Baltimore tech trend of 2015

Growing tech companies fueled an exciting suite of real estate coverage.

Beyond individual stories, a tech community is defined by how its component parts work together. So, to look back at 2015, we’re unpacking 10 themes that kept popping up with big headlines all year long. See the full list of 2015 trends here.


Incubator spaces like the Emerging Technology Centers and Betamore have long been the key gathering points for the startup community, and they continued to serve as central nodes this year. As individual companies grow up, however, so too do their real estate needs.

Citelighter and Mindgrub are examples of companies that moved into big new offices in South Baltimore where they have room to grow, while Terbium Labs and Gemstone Biotherapeutics found space in a development on West Ostend Street. The former wanted to stay close to Betamore, while the latter wanted to move into the city.

That growth also spawns new spaces. The real estate needs have the potential to further expand the startup community’s geography, with Cordish Companies’ Spark coworking space at Power Plant Live bringing more startups downtown and The CO-OP landing in Mt. Vernon. And with Baltimore startup Kinglet looking to make it easier to navigate the market, it became clear that office space was a key piece of any growing companies’ future planning. Now let’s see where everyone lands.
