D.W. Wilburn is serving as the general contractor for the CentrePointe Development, which soon opens in Lexington, Kentucky.
The CentrePointe Development is being constructed as three separate project phases — the first phase being the 700-space, underground parking garage, the second phase being the office tower, and the third phase being the hotel tower. The 12-story office tower will offer luxury office suites, shops, and a Jeff Ruby Steak House — all of which will overlook the center of downtown Lexington between Main and Vine Streets. In addition, the development will include two hotels- the Marriott and Residence Inn. The garage will be occupied on a date after its initial completion due to the construction of the office tower, hotels, restaurants, and retail spaces planned directly above the garage. Steel erection for the office tower and hotels are currently in process, with the cladding of the skin to follow during the Spring of 2018.
Project challenges have included an extremely limited staging area, mitigation of traffic congestion in downtown Lexington, rapid design changes, a fast-tracked construction schedule, the 24-hour removal of groundwater from the site, and set dates marking the beginning of tenant leases. Additionally, CentrePointe runs parallel to the proposed Town Branch Park, which is to be constructed on the Vine Street side of the building on a later date.
