The walls at Lexington Market are tumbling down. Demolition of the market’s arcade portion began Tuesday according to spokesperson Dave O’Donnell.

It comes after officials broke ground on a $40 million renovation of the 238-year-old market in February. The upgrades will include a new 61,000 square-foot market to be built on the former south parking lot.

Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young told CBS Baltimore at the time the project will lead to 270 new jobs.

The project is expected to be completed by mid-2021.
