Downtown Louisville Dream Hotel project advances, needs more funding

Plans to build a towering luxury hotel along Main Street in downtown Louisville still need final approval from the city.

But after taking a big step forward this week, the developer behind the project is moving ahead with plans to break ground before the end of the year.

The project – a hotel with nearly 170 rooms, a rooftop pool, four restaurants and additional spaces for events – earned unanimous approval from the West Main Street Architectural Review Committee at a Wednesday meeting. The plan will be reviewed by the city’s Development Review Committee next but does not need full Metro Council approval, according to Louisville Forward spokeswoman Caitlin Bowling.

The plan doesn’t have full approval yet. But Mayor Greg Fischer touted the project in a statement released Thursday morning through the company behind the hotel.
