LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Redevelopment is in the works for a community staple in Louisville's Germantown-Schnitzelburg neighborhood.
WAVE 3 News has learned Underhill Associates LLC has teamed with John Booker, the owner of Goss Avenue Antiques & Interiors, to redevelop the property into residential housing. Further details about the redevelopment are not yet being released.
"The Underhills, they're very well respected in Louisville," said Mike Morris, Germantown-Schnitzelburg Neighborhood Association President. "I'm familiar with their work, so we're real happy about that possibility."
Morris works directly across the street from the antique mall and believes redeveloping the property will give the neighborhood both a physical and financial boost.
"To have a hundred, possibly new residents with some disposable income to spend in our shops and restaurants, and get active in our neighborhood association," began Moore. "I think we would welcome it."
Goss Avenue Antiques & Interiors has sat at the 946 Goss Avenue location at the intersection of McHenry Street for the past six years. The property, however, has housed antiques for over three decades.
With the specifics of the redevelopment still under wraps, neighbors continue to await an official Goss Avenue Antiques & Interiors announcement in suspense.
"I'm really excited about it," said Josh Leopold. As a local contractor, Leopold has been renovating a home across the street from the antique mall.
"I think it's going to have a huge impact," began Leopold. "I think it's going to draw a lot more people down to the stores, to the vendors, to the local pubs, to just the neighborhood altogether."
An official announcement about the redevelopment of Goss Avenue Antiques & Interiors is expected Thursday. Stay with WAVE 3 News on-air, online at wave3.com, and on mobile for updates on this developing story.
