The parking garage under construction on the corner of Clay Street and Muhammad Ali Boulevard in the Medical Center has begun to show it’s two-tone brick facade. Dark grey bricks have been set at the structures base along Madison Street and lighter red bricks span the upper floors. The lines and massing of the garage reflect those of the Clinical and Translational Research Building under construction next door.
When complete, the garage will contain 1,700 parking spots on nine levels. The best feature of the building, however, is the sidewalk retail space on Muhammad Ali Blvd. Two new shops have been planned to face Liberty Green. No word yet on what might take the spaces, but the University of Louisville plans to seek proposals for the space soon.
