The open, flowing loft-style plans will be built around courtyards and will feature 10-foot ceilings, cork flooring, and lots of windows, Miller said. The condos will open onto interior corridors and will have elevator access. Many of the condos will have patios or balconies that overlook the courtyard.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 4, 2004) -- City Courts, a new development of 54 residential condominiums to be built on South Martin Luther King Boulevard, falls within the “Live Where You Work” Employer Assisted Housing (EAH) area for University of Kentucky employees.

City Courts was designed by Boulevard Centro, a development company that focuses exclusively on urban housing solutions. Centro has developed more than 300 condominiums in Charlotte, N.C., in the past five years.

Prices for the condominiums start at $94,500, said Joey Payne, director of UK employee benefits and self-funded plans in Human Resources. To contact Human Resources about the Employer Assisted Housing program, call (859) 257-9519 ext. 178.

The open, flowing loft-style plans will be built around courtyards and will feature 10-foot ceilings, cork flooring, and lots of windows, Miller said. The condos will open onto interior corridors and will have elevator access. Many of the condos will have patios or balconies that overlook the courtyard.

“This development is exciting,” said Ben Carr, special assistant to the UK executive vice president for finance and administration. “The affordable housing being constructed near UK, Samaritan Hospital, and downtown Lexington is a big boost to the Employer Assisted Housing programs for the university, Samaritan, and the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government. This is the type of project that was envisioned during the College-Town planning process. I would not be surprised at all to see several similar developments in this area.”
