LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The St. Matthews City Council has put the brakes on a planned apartment complex at Shelbyville Road and Hubbards Lane.

The council took issue with the developer's plans to close Church Way during construction.

"We are going to go back to the drawing board and look at just what our options are without closing the road," developer Chase Sorrick said.

Plans called for 276 apartments, restaurant and retail space on the first floor, and an underground parking garage.
