Another building by architect and developer Mark Isaacs is facing problems. A large portion of the fiber-cement facade at the Cliff View Terrace built at 2411 Brownsboro Road in 2009 by Isaacs’ now defunct Legacy Development company is being replaced, likely due to moisture issues that have plagued his other developments.
The Highland Terrace building on Baxter Avenue was forced to remove its masonry facade last year (see photo below) to repair its moisture barrier. When Isaacs’ Legacy Lofts, now the Soho on Main, was brought out of foreclosure by Will Realty, Kelly Will told Broken Sidewalk that the same fiber-cement panels used on the Cliff View Terrace were improperly installed on the Main Street project, which would have caused water problems in that building as well. A new facade has since been installed on the Soho on Main. Mark Isaacs fled Louisville in 2010 as debts were mounting and ended up in Starkville, Mississippi where his Louisville past continued to cause problems.
