October Construction Update for Omni Louisville

Construction Milestones

  • Construction teams are adding a new floor to the hotel every eight days.
  • Precast concrete for the building’s exterior will begin arriving on site in December 2016 – it will arrive at night to avoid traffic.

Traffic and Pedestrian Advisories

  • Work on the Second Street median is complete. There are no expected impacts or delays for traffic or pedestrians this month.

Fast Facts

  • About 150 workers are on the construction site each day, mostly concrete workers and electricians.
  • So far, the project has used 16,531 cubic yards of concrete – enough to build a sidewalk that’s 62 miles long.
  • The Omni Louisville includes 2,214 tons of reinforcing steel. That’s the weight of nearly a dozen 747 airplanes!
  • Omni Louisville unveiled model guest rooms in September, showcasing local inspirations from bourbon, bridges, the Ohio River, and local architecture.
