Jefferson Marketplace

Just down the street from the new Merriweather Library and across the street from the suburban style Tops on Jefferson Avenue is the first new build that incorporates some excellent urban design. The new Jefferson Marketplace is scheduled to open later this summer.

It's a unique opportunity to jump start small business here on the City's East Side. Rev. Stenhouse from Bethel AME and the Jeremiah Partnership along with über good guy Michael Clarke from LISC are two of the prime movers for this project.

well built to the street doesn't help if there are no doors facing it. I wouldn't call this 'good' urban design but it is at least a baby step in the right direction. Like the strip mall that fleet feet just moved into on Delaware.
