JCTC unveils renovated downtown Louisville bookstore – WLKY Louisville

The latest breaking updates, delivered straight to your email inbox.
Jefferson Community and Technical College’s bookstore reopened in an upgraded location Tuesday, a move to revitalize the entryway to the campus and Louisville’s downtown area, Louisville Business First reported.
The building at 200 W. Broadway is co-owned by JCTC and architecture firm Luckett & Farley (the latter is the majority owner.) The building was previously owned by the Jefferson Foundation. Leaders from the college, foundation and architecture firm collaborated on the design.
Because the building was owned by the foundation and not the college, JCTC President Ty Handy said development couldn’t be made with funding from the college.
“We had this great structure, but we didn’t have the finances and resources to be able to really bring it along,” Handy said. “Luckett & Farley stepped up to the plate with their commitment to this community and [South of Broadway] industry development, and they’ve partnered with us to help find that financing.”
