The Marshall breaks ground to provide more student housing in District 6!
Louisville – When completed, it will be a major investment providing more housing units for students near the University of Louisville. On Thursday, ground was broken on the Marshall of Louisville located at 2400 South Fourth Street.
“The Marshall will be a great addition to District 6 and when completed will enhance this area as we continue the revitalization of South Fourth Street,” said President David James, who joined Mayor Greg Fischer for the ground breaking.
The Marshall Louisville is an approximately $50 million investment in President James’ District. The project will have 231 Units that sit atop a 232 space parking garage. The development team worked with us to make the garage disappear as you will not even notice it. 531 University of Louisville Students will occupy this site in a short period of time.
“We are excited to support the University of Louisville and to provide student housing as the University delivers on its plan for growth,” Jack Dulworth, the local partner of Aptitude 4th Street, LLC remarked.
“The Marshall is the first of many projects that will transform University Corridor and give residents and visitors a feeling of place near the university and Churchill Downs,” says Councilwoman Marianne Butler (D-15). “I applaud Jack Dulworth and his partners on making this bold investment and look forward to other developments along the corridor.”
It is a new 10-story luxury student living complex sitting on a 1.5 acre lot being developed by 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 for students to relax with unobstructed views of the iconic Churchill Downs.
This is the first time in recent large student housing developments that there is a local partner, Jack Dulworth, who has had a substantial role in the development to date.
“I am glad to see this day come,” said James. “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, President James is committed to making substantial 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.
