The Aloft Hotel being developed by Poe Companies and under construction by Whittenberg Construction is rising in Downtown Louisville. The (approximately) $25 million hotel will feature just over 170 rooms within its eight stories. It is being constructed on the corner of First and Main Streets, and will feature an upscale WXYX bar on the ground floor, adding another nightlife hotspot to the KFC Yum! Center area.
While the first location is just getting underway, plans for a second Aloft hotel (a Starwood brand) were recently announced on Westport Road, this one a smaller, five-story, 120+ room version proposed by Lexington-based developer Patrick Madden.
