NitNeil Partners and Live Oak Capital Partners have unveiled plans for an adaptive reuse of the historic J.F. Kurfees Paint Building in downtown Louisville, Kentucky. The vacant property was acquired in August and with the intent to transform the 110,000 square foot building into a 4-story state-of-the-art self storage facility. Located at 201 East Market Street, the J.F. Kurfees Paint Building was originally constructed in 1915 and has been designated as a historic landmark by the National Register of Historic Places. The building's Beaux-Arts style is part of an architectural movement that influenced many civic and commercial buildings in Louisville during the early 1900's.
"We are thrilled to breathe new life and define the future of this historic building", said Neil Sapra, Principal for NitNeil Partners. "Louisville is in the early stages of an urban transformation and is well positioned for continued growth given its central geographical location, diverse economy, and quality of life factors."
The building is situated in the heart of the city and in close proximity to the Medical District and the booming NuLu neighborhood. The facility will be open to the public in the summer of 2016.
