On August 10th, 3rd Street Development with host the Official Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at 1:30 p.m. Distinguished guests will include Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer along with dignitaries from the University. Those in attendance will be allowed to view the residential and commercial areas of the development.

Cardinal Towne will host more events throughout the fall, and we will keep you posted on happenings. In the meantime, we recommend you go and take a look for yourself and enjoy this revitalized part of Louisville.


Divide and Conquer

Our listing at 4414 Louisville Avenue is a total of 20, 800 s/f, consisting of three attached buildings on two lots.

When it proved difficult to sell the entire property, we divided the property and conquered market resistance by selling off the 6,800 s/f portion. Steve Lennon and Paul Grisanti represented both the Seller and the Buyer in this transaction, which closed on July 12th.

The Grisanti Group team works constantly to find creative solutions for our clients; this is especially important as commercial real estate gradually emerges from its slowdown.

There are 14,000 SF remaining for either lease or sale. Contact Steve or Paul for more information.

Georgia on our mind

What do Louisville, KY and Augusta, GA have in common, besides the obvious connection to the Masters and the PGA tour at Valhalla?

Grisanti Group agent Jim Hutcherson successfully listed, marketed and sold the Piccadilly location on North Hurstbourne Parkway near Shelbyville Rd in Louisville, KY.  As a result of his efforts, he has been retained as a consultant to dispose of three Georgia Piccadilly properties located in Marietta, Warner-Robins, and Augusta.

Property and equipment are available. These high-traffic locations offer great business opportunities for restaurants or commercial land development.

Principal broker Paul Grisanti, who is licensed in Georgia, has the three properties listed and can be contacted for further details.

Grisanti Group fills Cardinal Towne

As the University of Louisville sought to expand student housing options, it gave its blessing to private developer Investment Property Advisors to construct a state-of-the-art student living complex on the northwest corner of campus. Set to begin leasing this August, Cardinal Towne will provide furnished apartments for 540 students along with amenities such as pool, fitness center, study and lounge areas. Grisanti Group is proud to represent four of the commercial tennants which will occupy the ground floor of this impressive development situated on Cardinal Blvd between S. 3rd and 4th Streets, at the site of the old Masterson’s Catering.

With Paul Grisanti’s experience in the restaurant business and past success finding sites for casual dining clients, it is no surprise that Grisanti Group has placed student-favorites Qdoba, Home Run Burgers, and Cluckers at the doorstep of Cardinal Towne’s residents.

Of course, these students will have to attend class every once in a while, and Gray’s College Store will conveniently serve all of their book, supply, and Cards gear needs.

Cardinal Towne promises to be destination living for UofL students, and will provide Old Louisville with a neighborhood retail center. We at Grisanti Group Commercial Real Estate are confident that our clients will prosper in this exciting new location.
