A two-story building at 1015 Bardstown Road just south of Highland Avenue is getting a facelift that will yield the permanent home to MozzaPi, a wood-fired, Neapolitan-style pizzeria (which initially opened as a food truck last year), with new apartments above.
Building owner Gary Joy received a $50,000 facade loan from the city last year to renovate the property and restore the storefront with new paint and windows. Four apartments are planned on the second floor. The 10,000 square foot building had previously been listed for sale for $650,000.
MozzaPi co-owners Tom Edwards and Justyne Richardson are hoping to have their permanent location open by early March. For more information on the MozzaPi business and Neapolitan pizza, check out Steve Coomes’ Insider Louisville write-up from last year.
