According to the authority, the main aim of the project is to make downtown Louisville an active, vibrant, unique and green 24/7 neighborhood, business district and tourist destination. 

The three different sites identified in the RFQ will be used to implement developments that include affordable and market-rate housing, hospitality, arts and entertainment, distilling/bourbon, commercial, grocery and/or mixed-use projects. 

“By opening these properties up to developers, we are taking underused assets and creating opportunities for our local economy and businesses to benefit from 24/7 activity downtown and to build upon the tremendous planned investments in public safety and infrastructure that Louisville Metro Government is making downtown,” said Mayor Craig Greenberg.

The deadline for responses is June 23, 2023. The RFQ can be found here.
