LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A private developer is in the midst of tearing down more than a dozen boarded-up houses and other buildings on a nearly five-acre site near the University of Louisville with plans to build apartments for college students on the land.

Called The Lofts, the complex will have 272 apartments in two, five-story buildings on either side of a multi-story parking garage.

Land Design & Development firm head Kevin Young told The Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/1e5o1KG ) the apartments are expected to be ready for the 2015-2016 school year.

The development is going up on the western edge of a neighborhood known for bungalows and houses dating back to 1910. The scope of the project was scaled back after neighbors expressed concerns.
