Agreed. The previous design appears better.

This is still a "preliminary" design. I'm guessing the original design (v2 blue glass from a few months back) was made more to show the building's massing.

I'm working on a rendering with the building in the full skyline, but this is an article from today.






Images, details of Omni development unveiled

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The next "exclamation point" to mark Louisville's skyline will be a 30-story glass and brick tower featuring 600 hotel rooms and 225 residential units, restaurants, an urban market and more. Mayor Greg Fischer and the project's lead design director unveiled renderings and new details of the Omni Hotel project on Wednesday. It promises to transform downtown Louisville.

"This hotel is going to be a fantastic and stunning addition to our downtown," Fischer said.

[PREVIOUS STORY: Omni Hotel development grows in scale, will become Louisville's 3rd tallest building]

The building's main entrance will be off 2nd Street near Liberty Street, "with a much-anticipated grocery store hugging the corner at 3rd and Liberty," the mayor added.

Local art will be featured inside the facility, which will also house a unique bourbon bar, a bakery, meat counters and a rooftop swimming pool.

"It was really important to not feel like it could be a project that's built anywhere across the United States, but really be a project that... felt like it was part of the local vibe of Louisville," said Eddie Abeyta, the project's lead designer for HKS Architects.

To that end, Abeyta said the intersection of 2nd and Main Streets gave him the inspiration for the Omni project's design because it features elements of the very old, such as Whiskey Row, to the very new, such as the KFC Yum! Center.

"The building is designed to be a prominent landmark against the Louisville skyline, as the intersection of hotel and residential towers are uniquely expressed as bold overlapping architectural forms meant to represent the crossroads of the past, present and future of Louisville," Abeyta wrote in his narrative of the project, the entirety of which is below:

"The Omni Louisville is designed to be a catalyst to the city's future growth and urban development while embracing and celebrating Louisville's authentic quality in a new and forward thinking way. It will be more than just a travel destination as it incorporates hotel, residential living and neighborhood amenities into a vertically integrated urban mixed-use development.

"The building is designed to be a prominent landmark against the Louisville skyline, as the intersection of hotel and residential towers are uniquely expressed as bold overlapping architectural forms meant to represent the crossroads of the past, present and future of Louisville.

"The Omni Louisville will reflect the warmth and hospitality of our city to visitors while also serving as place for our growing downtown community to connect and enjoy the benefits of urban living in an upscale yet comfortable environment.

"Glistening during the day and glowing at night, the glassy ends of the 600 room hotel tower and 225 unit residential tower will be an iconic and gestural response of the building reaching out to engage with the city. A concept inspired by the image of bourbon pouring out of a still, the prominent tower ends become an expression of the inner spirit of the project being expressed visually outward.

"The ground level public space is designed to embrace the neighborhood with vibrant spaces for both local and hotel guests. The restaurant tenants will have the flexibility to open up doors and walls to provide guests indoor or outdoor dining options.

"A modern urban lifestyle market will add another dynamic dimension to the project. The market will transform Liberty Street from an auto-centric environment into the city's new pedestrian thoroughfare. It will invite the neighborhood in with the smells of freshly brewed coffee, baking bread and fragrant fresh flowers and will serve as a gateway to the community for hotel guests and locals alike.

"Building on the city's strong sense of community and connection to the outdoors, the project maximizes its rooftop spaces and views. The hotel pool and rooftop bar will allow guests to rest, relax or socialize with spectacular views of the city from above. Other hotel amenities such as the fitness center and spa will also be found the pool deck level. Go a little higher, and you will find the residence amenity deck on top the hotel guestroom wing.

Inspired by the city's rich history and authentic character, the Omni Louisville will transform one of the city's most significant urban blocks into a unique and vibrant mixed-use environment offering hotel guests, residents and locals a chance to connect and enjoy the best of a great city."

Very nice. Now if we can silence the crybabies over the removal of old, dilapidated buildings. then maybe we can all enjoy a little new growth.

I wonder if there will be a construction, or weather camera set up, so we can follow the construction. Does anyone know?

Interesting commentary on the Omni development...

Don't want to be a stick in the mud... and I am very in favor of this development, but do suggest taking look at this editorial on the LEO which has some great points...

As the article says, this is a good thing for the city, and the Mayor should be commended. Therefore, there's nothing that should be questioned. We can do the other things mentioned in the article as well. It doesn't mean we have to trade one for the other. Yes, there's only so much money to go around, but how much has been spent on the other things mentioned in the article in the past 20 + years, weighed against the amount spent on high profile city structures?

If Bill Gates offered to build us a sky scrapper for free, there would no doubt be someone with an article showing how bad an idea it is, or how it would be better if it'd been done differently. I say be happy we're getting the Omni. It's a great thing for Louisville.

"The mayor said the goal is to make sure the land is cleared and ready for construction by Jan. 1."

I think it's the 3rd tallest, and that in Louisville, not the state.

^ The four tallest buildings in Kentucky are in Louisville so if it's the third tallest in the city, it will also be the third tallest in the state. Emporis has the building's height estimated at 473.02 ft. I was trying to find any press releases/news articles that gave a figure but haven't been able to locate any at this time.

You're right, as far as actual height. I was going by number of floors.
