Rye Street Market

The Rye Street Market consists of 4 Buildings totaling over 230,000 sq ft that surround a plaza reminiscent of an old European village square. The project includes loft-style offices, meeting space, a rooftop event space and ground-level shops and restaurants.

Project Info

The project features an open-air market and food hall that developers say is inspired by Baltimore’s neighborhood markets. The 4 buildings are all interconnect via a central MEP infrastructure that originates out of the largest of the four buildings, a 175,000 sq ft highrise office building.  

These buildings are part of the first phase of the development called Port Covington in Baltimore, MD.
