$18M Whisky Row Lofts Project Announced for Downtown

By wmadministrator

Two historic buildings in downtown Louisville – one the former headquarters of L&N Railroad, the other a building that once housed Louisville’s famous bourbons – are being renovated and converted to accommodate a mixed-used project that will include apartments, condos, restaurants and offices.

The Whiskey Row Lofts
project is being developed by Bill Weyland, of CITY Properties, and Valle and Stephen Jones, siblings who own the buildings. The $18 million renovation project, which is adjacent to Louisville’s new downtown arena, will keep many of the buildings’ original features, including hardwood floors and huge windows overlooking downtown, the arena and the Ohio River.

Construction on Whiskey Row will start in early 2009, Weyland said, and is expected to be completed in 2010 – in time for the opening of the new downtown arena.
