PROJECT DETAILS

The Liberty Green HOPE VI revitalization of the 6 – block neighborhood was completed in two phases, transforming a 60-year old barracks style complex (approximately 700+ units), isolated from its surrounding neighbors, into a new mixed-income Energy Star certified neighborhood.

Following New Urbanism principles, the revitalization plan utilized a mixed land use pattern, accomplished by reestablishing the historic street pattern throughout the site, eliminating the “super-block” feel and re-instituting a more “walkable,” pedestrian-friendly environment. Streets were redesigned to be easily crossable and to a neighborhood scale, with the inclusion of small, neighborhood oriented parks located within short distances of the new housing. Curb cuts were relocated to more appropriate locations to improve safety, enhance accessibility and to further improve the neighborhood environment.

The Liberty Green plan incorporates a mix of ACC, LIHTC, Tax Credit, and Market Rate Homes. The wide range of housing types includes a mix of single family detached homes, attached homes, and small apartment buildings. The variety of housing types creates a diversity of scale and style along the neighborhood streets. Narrow neighborhood streets with small scale houses complement the larger external streets with mature trees, while small neighborhood parks provide the setting for townhomes.

The Louisville Metro Housing Authority and the City of Louisville will break ground Friday, March 29, on Phase I of the Beecher Terrace Revitalization. Phase I includes a single, four-story building with 117 units designed specifically for seniors.

As part of a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
Choice Neighborhoods Initiative Implementation Grant, the new Beecher Terrace will be transformed into a sustainable, walkable, and amenity-rich community. When complete it will offer over 600 units of affordable housing. The buildings reflect the character of nearby neighborhoods while maintaining their heritage and identity.

The entire redevelopment is pursuing U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and USGBC Kentucky LEED for Neighborhood Development (LEED ND) and Enterprise Green Community certification.

Sherman Carter Barnhart has worked with the Louisville Metro Housing Authority for over 25 years, and we are proud to be a partner with McCormack Baron Companies on the Beecher Terrace Revitalization.
