LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The Kentucky Court of Appeals unanimously ruled today that a lower court acted properly when it turned back a challenge brought by Hurstbourne neighbors.
The plans for the property calls for a three-story, 62,103-square-foot building and outdoor driving range at the site of the former Sears department store and into the mall’s parking lot. It would have more than 100 climate-controlled outdoor hitting bays, a bar, dining area, and roof terrace.
Metro Council allowed the project to move forward in late 2018, capping a series of packed and lengthy public meetings with supporters and opponents alike. The council voted 20-3 to rezone 22 acres of land at Oxmoor Center, allow a permit for a driving range and give other exemptions from land-use rules, such as 175-foot-tall poles that would anchor Topgolf nets.
