PROJECT DETAILS

Built during World War II, the revitalization of Sheppard Square builds on the character of the adjacent neighborhoods and urban patterns, maintaining its unique heritage and identity. A new entry street along the Hancock corridor, presents a new image for the neighborhood while reinforcing its connection to the city and downtown area. The new entry way also creates a network of links to the existing streets, thereby promoting the long-term viability of this mixed income neighborhood, as well as encourages the continued redevelopment of the adjacent neighborhoods.

Sherman Carter Barnhart designed the phased redevelopment which includes 255 new units within six blocks, offering a variety of housing types including two and three-story town houses, single family, duplexes and multi-family configurations featuring two, three, and four-bedroom units. Each neighborhood block also includes accessible units. Each building offers visitable features and universal design.

The entire redevelopment is LEED for Neighborhood New Development (LEED ND) certified. with seven of the multi-family homes LEED for Homes certified. All units are Energy Star Certified. Sustainable features include; solar roof panels on seven multi-family homes, and high efficiency HVAC systems including geothermal on select units. Parking lots are designed with permeable pavers with subsurface stormwater detention, or concrete with bio-swales to capture stormwater. The neighborhood also features nine charging stations for electric cars. The new neighborhood is a smoke free community featuring a fitness park , and the “Park Block” features the “boxing glove” sculpture in tribute to Louisville native, Muhammad Ali.

All six neighborhood blocks have earned Enterprise Green Community certification. Enterprise Green Communities certification demonstrates the design team’s commitment to providing high performance, healthy homes for low-income families.

Amazing project for the future of the Russell County Students.Progress continues on the Lake Cumberland Regional College & Workforce Center! The building (under construction by Branscum Construction Company, Inc) is beginning to resemble the design rendering by Sherman Carter Barnhart Architects. The center is being constructed on the grounds of Russell County High School but will be a resource for the entire region. The center is expected to serve 2,215 high school students and 620 adults in all five primary Kentucky Workforce Investment Board sectors — advanced manufacturing, healthcare, technology, construction trades, and transportation.
