A Market, a "generic" armor class building.

The building armor class, sometimes referred to as Class 11 armor[1], is an armor class in Age of Empires II. All units that have an attack bonus against this class deal bonus damage against buildings with this armor class.

This armor class primarily relates to enabling attack bonuses from naval and siege damage. This building armor class is not to be confused with the standard building armor class, which also contains all buildings (bar the Wonder), but takes bonus damage from different units and is affected by other technologies and bonuses. The purpose of having two different armor classes for buildings is most likely to keep Masonry and Architecture from cancelling the attack bonus infantry holds against buildings.
