State accepts Museum Plaza's application for TIF district
The Kentucky TIF Commission has accepted Museum Plaza's application for tax-increment financing on its public infrastructure.

Negotiations now will begin among Museum Plaza developers and local and state government officials to work out the details of the project grant agreement.

The agreement will return to the TIF Commission for approval before the project can get started. The TIF Commission is set to meet Oct. 16 to consider the project grant agreement, according to a news release.

Jill Midkiff, a spokeswoman for the Kentucky Finance Department, said she could not disclose how much the developers seek the TIF district to generate because that information is confidential taxpayer information.

Museum Plaza is planned as a 62-story complex with a contemporary art museum, a Westin hotel, office space, retail shops and residential condominiums. It will be located at Seventh Street and River Road in downtown Louisville and is expected to cost $490 million.

The project is slated to break ground in late October and to be completed in late 2010.

Yes. The only thing between it and the river is a floodwall and I-64.

From the thread in the Southeast section:

Developers of the Museum Plaza skyscraper plan to leave a mark on traditional groundbreaking ceremonies when they announce the start of construction Thursday.

The first 500 people in attendance will get free barbecue and commemorative hard hats. A helicopter hovering 703 feet above the street will beam live footage to screens on the ground — offering a glimpse of views from a height equivalent to the skyscraper’s top floor.

“We really wanted it to be community celebration,” said Louisville attorney Craig Greenberg, one of the project’s four developers.

“Museum Plaza has always been a community project. It’s always been a public-private partnership and it’s been a project that’s evolved based on the input of the entire community,” he said.

The University of Louisville’s pep band is scheduled to perform, and ground will be broken by a 20-foot-long, 400-pound shovel hanging from a 200-foot crane.

Starting at 4 p.m., Museum Plaza will have an open house at its sales and design center at 707 W. Main St., which features renderings of views from the building’s 25th floor and portions of bathrooms and kitchens built to scale. The groundbreaking ceremony will follow at 5:40 p.m.

Some streets near the project site at Seventh Street and River Road will be closed much of Thursday. From 6 a.m. until 11:30 p.m., traffic won’t be allowed on:

Seventh Street north of Main Street.

River Road west of Sixth Street.

Washington Street between Sixth and Eighth streets.

Museum Plaza, a 62-story skyscraper, is scheduled to be complete by late 2010. It is being developed by Greenberg, Louisville businessman Steve Poe and local couple Laura Lee Brown and Steve Wilson.

I love it. Anyone who doesn't like it just because it seems 'boxy' should be shot in the face with a shotgun multiple times.

I will definately be getting shots from all over once things get rolling! Too bad I won't make groundbreaking.
