Here are a few construction photos sent in by a tipster of the new dining facility under construction at Third Street and Brandeis Avenue near the U of L Belknap campus. You can see a few renderings on our first story about the project attached to the University Towers Apartments.
While I would have preferred something with a few more floors, creating an urban edge at the sidewalk is an improvement over the vast setback of the 1960s era dorm. Once the nearby Masterson’s block redevelopment gets underway, the area will be on its way to becoming a sort of urban center. Now if we can just figure out what to do with that block in between with the parking lots and shopping center.
The University of Louisville Dining Services website still says it’s scheduled to open this Spring, but it looks like it might be pushing summer. It was designed by Sherman Carter Barnhart Architects. A gallery of construction photos going back to August 2009 is after the click.
