Marian Group Selected for Massive Urban Redevelopment; EOP Leading Design

LOUISVILLE, Dec. 20, 2017 — Louisville Forward announced that Louisville’s The Marian Group has been selected today to redevelop the 12-acre former Urban Government Center for a city-owned, mixed-income housing and commercial development to include townhomes, shotgun-style single family homes, multifamily rental units and condo flats. EOP is the design lead for the development that will also include a Family Scholar House campus and a mix of senior and affordable housing alongside office and other commercial space, including the possible development of a boutique hotel.

“Great projects come from great partnerships,” comments EOP’s Rick Ekhoff, AIA, the project’s design partner. “Investing in core spaces like the Urban Government Center is what defines the values of a community, and it will be another reason Louisville is such an exciting and rewarding city.”

“Our goal is to deliver a dynamic development that will ultimately contribute to the economic and cultural viability of the neighborhood,” Ben Simmons, AIA, project manager and EOP associate remarks.

The team includes a collaboration between The Marian Group, EOP, Work Architecture + Design and CARMAN. The development will include a Family Scholar House campus.
