See how sustainability has played a central role in the redevelopment of the longest continuously operating indoor public market in the U.S. at USGBC Maryland’s tour of Lexington Market! Located in West Baltimore and tracing its origins to 1782, the 60,000+ square foot facility recently hosted its soft launch opening at the end of October and is currently tracking LEED certification.

Sustainability strategies include:

  • Emphasis on walkability, bike-ability, and utilizing preexisting multi-modal transportation infrastructure
  • Cultivating community resilience through infill development
  • Maintaining open space
  • Heat island effect reduction
  • Light pollution reduction
  • Indoor and outdoor water efficiency measures
  • Enhanced commissioning

Don’t miss this opportunity to see sustainable innovation at work at this historic redevelopment!
