City advances plans for $30M downtown development

By The Associated Press

JEFFERSONVILLE — A southern Indiana city is moving ahead with a $30 million project to bring new restaurants, a hotel and office park to the downtown.

The Jeffersonville Planning Commission unanimously approved plans last week for the Jeffersonville Gateway on 10 acres of vacant land. The proposal now heads to the city council.

Mayor Mike Moore says he’s confident that work on the project will start early next year and that it will bring an economic lift to his city just north of Louisville, Kentucky.

He says the four restaurants, hotel and 12,000-square-foot office park will also make the area just off Interstate 65 more attractive.

The News and Tribune reports that Louisville-based Hogan Real Estate will be the project developer.
