D.W. Wilburn is serving as the general contractor for City Center, formerly known as CentrePointe Development.
City Center has been constructed in 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- City Center Marriott and City Center 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 was comleted on April 19, 2018, while the hotel steel erection commenced at the beginning of April 2018. The office tower curtainwall installation will begin the last week of April.
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, City Center 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.
