LDP Business Support
Downtown Louisville is the heartbeat of the region. The economic stability of not only Metro Louisville, but of the surrounding counties, is directly impacted by the commercial, residential, and cultural success of our Downtown. LDP focuses on addressing a changing retail and tourism landscape, while also providing a home for a workforce that will anchor the financial resilience of our Downtown. We provide technical assistance to Downtown businesses, focusing on retail/entertainment/dining sectors.
Our long-term goals include:
- Identify methods to attract tenants that would normally not occupy Class A office or office tower space. These include small businesses, start-ups, and non-professional services. Open office floor plans provide the ability to safely social distance and configure a space to the needs of any potential tenant.
- Create and promote a destination retail/attraction and hotel recovery partnership. While online retail has created increased hardship for traditional brick and mortar retailers, specialty goods with an exclusivity factor drive retail tourism and have maintained demand despite increased online retail.
- Implement a retail/entertainment/food incubation plan for Downtown. The trend in many locations, including malls and suburbs, is to provide a variety of offerings to entice visitors. Each of these segments support the vitality of the others, creating a strong and vibrant district.
- Increase our Downtown resident population, specifically targeting those individuals that work Downtown and in the Medical District. LDP will review comparable cities with optimal residential density to understand the amenities and offerings that will encourage movement into the Downtown area.
