Yesterday, we shared with you a preview of the progress at the Village at Great Acres — the 51-acre commercial + residential development near the Masterson Station neighborhood. That had us thinking — how about an update on the other development happenings around Lexington.
🏗️ High Street

Last month, it was announced that Lexington Center Corporation (aka the group that manages Central Bank Center) chose to continue negotiations for the 17-acre High Street Development project with Lincoln Webb LLC — a group comprised of Dallas-based Lincoln Property Company + Lexington’s Webb Companies.

While that means no downtown Lexington Sporting Club stadium, the proposal does list an event venue. The group is recommending a mixed-use commercial space to include a grocery store, retail space, residential housing, a hotel, and multiple parking facilities.

🏗️ Turner Commons Development

If you’re driving away from downtown on Main Street, after you go over the overpass, look to the right + you’ll see Turner Commons. We shared this news with you in December, but things are chugging right along at 1301 W. Main St.

Upgrades are taking place on existing warehouses and the groundwork is being laid for additional flex spaces. Battle Axes is expanding — adding go-karts, bowling, ziplines + more — and aims to be open in Turner Commons later this month.

🏗️ Manchester Hotel

We shared the groundbreaking news of the Manchester Hotel back in December + in just six months, the six-story, $37.5 million upscale boutique hotel is scraping the sky. The project is led by EOP Architects + expected to be completed this year.

🏗️ The Fountains at Palomar

Already bustling with businesses like Limestone Bank, Papi’s, and Orange Theory, this busy corner of Harrodsburg Road + Man O’ War Boulevard is growing like a weed. See what the future of this space looks like here.

Additionally, a zone change was recently approved for another 11-acre residential + retail development just south of The Fountains, coming from the same developers — Greer Companies and The Webb Companies.
