Cushman & Wakefield Commercial Kentucky has been hired to sell the property for the owner.

G&K is located on historic West Main Street, which extends from 6th Street to 8th Street. The buildings here are notable for their length and floor-load capacities, as they were originally used as warehouse spaces. A major feature of these buildings is their cast-iron facades.

The area is now home to restaurants, 21c Hotel, office users, residents and museums.
