Village Green has purchased the 800 Apartments in downtown Louisville. An extensive plan to redevelop and reposition the famous apartment tower to the Village Green City Apartment brand includes a revised name that will be announced in July.

“The 800 Apartments was a modern architectural icon that we look forward to restoring, upgrading and returning to being Louisville’s premier address”, said Village Green Chairman and CEO Jonathan Holtzman in a written statement. “The views of the city from The 800 are phenomenal, and with all the apartment improvements, especially the brand new 29th floor Sky Club and rooftop Sky Park and pool, it will be a remarkable place again."

The building will undergo a transformation starting with new models in July, followed by a new boutique hotel-style lobby this winter, new 29th floor Sky Club and rooftop Sky Park and extensive exterior improvements finished by winter of 2016.

Exterior changes include a more pronounced modern entry, updated street and property landscaping, new façade lighting from the ground and roof, and restoration of the original blue color. Construction is by Brinkmann Constructors and Village Green Construction, contracting with a local engineering firm along with local suppliers and subcontractors to assist in the work.

When built in 1963, the 29-story building was the tallest in Louisville. The top floor will be converted to a new Sky Club with gourmet kitchen, fireplace, TVs, flexible lounge seating and an outdoor terrace with dining and grilling station. The club will share the top floor with a new professional fitness center that also has an outdoor exercise terrace. Above these will be a rooftop Sky Park with swimming pool, sun deck, Zen space, fire pit, outdoor kitchen and bar, outdoor TVs and flexible lounge seating – all with panoramic views of Louisville.
