LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Plans are in the works for a new apartment complex to be built behind the Oxmoor Center.

The Oxmoor Farm Development plan was filed with the city on Monday. It includes 15 apartment buildings, spread across a 16 acre lot.

The development is planned on Oxmoor Lane, behind Oxmoor Center, off Shelbyville Road near the Watterson Expressway.

When the project to convert acres of the historic farm land began in the early 2000s, the Bullitt family planned to keep about 70 of the farm's more than 400 acres intact for historical purposes.

Included on those acres are the original farm house and ice house, as well as the Oxmoor Cemetery.

Today, land at Oxmoor Farms is still used for growing food. It is also home to the Food Literacy Project and has recently been used as a venue for Filson Historical Society events.
