University of Louisville Unveiled Newest Teaching Space in Town

The University of Louisville unveiled its newest teaching space in town — a revitalized warehouse in the Portland neighborhood that is the school’s first location west of Ninth Street.

The 60,000-square-foot, two-story warehouse was built in the 1880s and has been used as a steamer trunk factory and floor-covering distribution business.

About 43,200 square feet of the building now houses U of L’s master of fine arts degree program in studio arts and design; anthropology labs and archaeological artifact storage; and the Urban Design Studio.
