New student housing facility approved near UK

Madison Rexroat

A student apartment complex at the corner of Limestone and Virginia was approved last month. The 1.8-acre property will hold a six-story apartment complex with 190 apartments and 574 beds.

The ground floor of the complex will be reserved for commercial space and the complex will also have interior courtyards and a roof-top pool. A parking garage will have approximately 160 parking spaces to hold both commercial and residential parking. 

Since the building will be so close to campus, mostly UK students are expected to live there. The developer of the complex is Core Spaces, which has similar buildings in 22 college towns. 

The building has been approved by the Urban County Planning Commission and is now awaiting approval from the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Council.
