LOUISVILLE, Ky. (KT) - Ground has been broken on a $50 million project to provide more housing options near the University of Louisville campus.
The Marshall will be a new 10-story luxury student living complex sitting on a 1.5-acre lot being developed by Jack Dulworth and Aptitude 4th Street, LLC.
The property will house 591 beds throughout 231 fully furnished units. The complex will include two parking garage floors beneath eight stories of residential apartments and amenities. The penthouse floor will feature a 2,500 square-foot outdoor terrace and 8,000 square feet of amenity space, including a gym, study lounges and game rooms.
“We are excited to support the University of Louisville and to provide student housing as the University delivers on its plan for growth,” said Dulworth, the local partner of Aptitude 4th Street, LLC.
“I am glad to see this day come,” said Louisville Metro Council President David James, in whose district the building will be located. “The City worked hard to land the project as this area that has been a high priority target for redevelopment.”
As the project moves forward, James says he wants to make improvements to the underpass entrance to the University of Louisville, to make it friendlier for people walking, biking or “Birding”, which refers to scooters that have recently become part of Metro Louisville’s transportation mode.
Aptitude has two similar projects underway at Syracuse University and another one at Coastal Carolina University.
The Marshall is expected to be ready for occupancy in fall 2020.
