i came across a new proposal for development around the 4th street live project in louisville (which i visited last year). it would increase the size of 4th street live and make it less of an island.
The block involved is bounded by Second, Third and Liberty streets and Muhammad Ali Boulevard and will eventually include a 20-plus-story tower -- probably primarily condominiums.
The block also will include a cinema complex, hotel, office space, retailing, restaurants, nightclubs and other entertainment.
Cordish's new cost estimates are included in documents that will be reviewed today in Frankfort by the state commission considering approval of a "tax-increment financing" district for the project.
Besides the work to be done on the water company block, Cordish's plans call for a major renovation of the old Louisville Gardens into a performance and sports venue and a new parking garage on the southwest corner of Third Street and Muhammad Ali Boulevard.
there are other projects underway in st. louis and san francisco, as well as cordish's recent move to create a casino management division. since they will be a major player here, i think it's a good idea to compare/contrast and see how they're doing in other metros.
