EOP's CentrePointe Design Approved

LEXINGTON, KY - March 28, 2012.  At a special meeting of the Courthouse Area Design Review Board today, the mixed-use development CentrePointe was unanimously approved. This was the last hurdle in the sometimes controversial project.

"We would've gone nowhere if we hadn't passed today. So this was the last big hurdle in terms of clearing the government requirements. So huge day," said EOP's Rick Ekhoff.

Next for the project is coming up with the finance package. Currently Jeff Ruby's, Saul Good, Urban Active and J.W. Marriott have committed to the block, with several banks expressing interest as well.
