House food hall are taking over the long sought-after overhaul of Baltimore's Lexington Market and could begin construction by late next year.  Seawall Development Co. has been tapped to head a $30 million to $40 million redevelopment of the historic city-owned market that includes retaining the east building, creating a new smaller structure to the south and turning Lexington Street into a "pedestrian mall" with a farmers market.
