Spotlight Project: Shakes Run – Louisville, KY

Shakes Run is a 250-acre, 480 unit residential community located on Eastwood / Fisherville Road in eastern Jefferson County, Kentucky. The planning concept was to create an open space community that preserved the existing woodlands, meadows, streams and farm fields, and interconnected these amenities by a system of trails. The resulting master plan protected over 54 acres (22%) of the site.

SABAK, WILSON & LINGO, Inc. is serving as Landscape Architects, Engineers and Surveyors. Our services include development of a masterplan and construction plans for each section, including the clubhouse.

Multi-Family Development

SABAK, WILSON & LINGO, Inc. has produced plans for a variety of urban and suburban multi-family developments from medium density attached housing like Notting Hills to high density apartment complexes like Idlewild or the new 7-story development being constructed at the corner of Main & Clay. The diversity of our multi-family experience has prepared us to take on any project.

Spotlight Project: Cardinal Towne

Cardinal Towne is located at the corner of S. 3rd Street and Cardinal Boulevard. This property forms the edge of the Old Louisville Neighborhood to the north and the University of Louisville to the south. The project encompasses an entire city block providing student housing and mixed-use retail on the first floor along Cardinal Boulevard in two new buildings and three existing buildings. SABAK, WILSON & LINGO, Inc. served as site planners, landscape architects, engineers and surveyors on this project. We prepared the development plan for local agency approvals, and developed conceptual landscape, streetscape and public realm plans. The project was one of the first in Louisville to implement storm water best management practices (permeable pavement, green roofs, and infiltration trenches) as an integral part of the site’s re-development, capturing and infiltrating over 90% of the storm water. We also assisted the client in preparing a proposal to provide student housing for the University of Louisville. Construction was completed in Fall 2012.
