Demolition crews are making way for the Museum Plaza skyscraper in downtown Louisville. Clearing space is phase one in the construction of the $465 million project.
Meanwhile, developers prepared to keep lobbying in Frankfort for state financing to aid the project.
â€œThis proposed legislation will bring thousands of new visitors to Kentucky, add nearly a billion dollars to the states economy, create more than a thousand new jobs (and) internationally promote Kentucky tourism,â€ Developer Craig Greenberg said.
The 61-story building will feature condos, lofts, a 300-room hotel and an art museum.
