UK Board Approves Lexington Residential Development Plan


The University of Kentucky Board of Trustees has given the go ahead for a residential development on property near the interstate in Lexington.  The project is proposed for acreage included in the Coldstream Research site.

The 13 acre development will include approximately 250 multi-family residential units.  Coldstream Research Campus Director George Ward said the multi-family housing will allow for the creation of a live-work-play-learn environment by providing the social infrastructure necessary to further the development of office and research facilities.?
