Louisville’s First Car-Free/Transit-Rich Mixed Use Redevelopment was not, in 2018, approved by the Clifton Architectural Review Committee (CARC). CARC considered it too big in relation to the adjacent shotgun house. Since then, we have purchased the lot holding the shotgun. The plan then became to use the lot as a side yard/garden for Frankfort Crossing. If the shotgun could be salvaged it would be used as a garden house. In 2019, despite photographic evidence and reports by a termite inspector and a structural engineer that the structure was not sound, despite the reports concluding that almost all the wood components would need replaced, despite the damage to both buildings resulting from their proximity, despite warnings that any work conducted in the structure was dangerous, CARC twice denied permission to demolish the structure. A construction permit to gut the interior was obtained. That dangerous work will soon begin.
