Smoketown Louisville KYThe Courier-Journal is reporting that a new development planned near Smoketown continues to grow. The Floyd Street complex, just outside of downtown Louisville, now plans to include a fine dining restaurant, sports bar and “Bluegrass Music Kitchen,” among other additions. The overall $9 million investment is expected to be a big economic boost to the area.

The development is part of a bigger effort to improve the quality of the neighborhood. Old public housing units will be removed and replaced by more modern housing. The investing pair of Stinson & Lewis, developing the Floyd Street complex, have purchased additional buildings in the area to redevelop. The restaurant and music kitchen will hopefully be ready for the 2015 Kentucky Derby.
