When I look at the rendering for the new Lexington Market, I don't see an engine for growth that the city is looking for ("Plan calls for razing, rebuilding Lexington Market," Dec. 2). I don't see anything appealing or innovating about the proposed new market except that it will be new and clean (at least for a while). In my opinion, the design totally lacks imagination. It looks like a big glass box. What about green technology? How about a living roof? How about solar panels? How about something that says "Baltimore"? How about something that acknowledges the history of the market and the city?
Also, why was this a surprise to City Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young? I hope that the new mayor recognizes that City Council deserves a seat at the table.
