A once grand mansion on the corner of First Street and Kentucky Street is undergoing a thorough renovation to transform the former slum house into a modern apartment building. Work has been going on for a while now on the house as crews last month stripped paint from and repaired the brick building’s exterior. New landscaping has recently been installed and new windows will go in next week.

The project is being developed by the Lee Hensley Company, a group working to restore several Old Louisville properties. Here’s some info from the company’s web site:

Not only is this company focused entirely on Old Louisville, but we live there. We see the potential of its future. We have a vision. We see the current issues preventing the area to change, and are looking for ways to turn them around. We are spending our time improving the real estate in Old Louisville and plan to return it to the grandeur of the past. We see Old Louisville as the Gem of the City.

When the renovation is complete, the building will have five apartments with average rents of $400. There will be four studio apartments and a one-bedroom unit. The building was in really bad shape before the renovation began and it’s good to see some positive work going on inside.
