CITYSpace on Main, a new self-storage facility in Louisville, Ky., will open on Friday night with a grand opening from 4 to 7 p.m. including entertainment, food and door prizes. Mayor Jerry Abramson will be in attendance, and attendees will enjoy BBQ, bluegrass music, a Willie Nelson impersonator and more.
Exhibitors at the event will include CITYSpace architect Putney Architecture and Greensleeves Design, the project’s environmental designer. The facility was the former home of the Boland-Maloney Lumber Co. The property was sold to investors in March for $1.36 million. The new owners are real estate broker Mark Helm, Greg Williams of Sign4, and Eleanor Bingham-Miller, developer for Waterfront Park Place condominiums.
Helm said he and his fellow investors are contributing to the “green” movement by collecting rain water off the facility’s 41,000-square-foot roof and storing it to irrigate the property’s landscaping. The remainder of the water will be released into the waste-water system during off-peak times.
