New Albany developer: New apartments, Brooklyn and The Butcher set to open concurrently, by Caitlin Bowling (Louisville Business First)
It looks like Brooklyn and The Butcher, a new steakhouse concept from restaurant owner Ian Hall, and the 12-apartment complex above the restaurant will open in November.
The apartments and restaurant are located at 148 E. Market St. in New Albany. Developer Matt Chalfant bought the property in fall 2013 for $332,500 with plans to renovate the more than 140-year-old building.
The top floors of the three-story building are being turned into 12 apartments, a mixture of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units, Chalfant told Louisville Business First. Rent hasn't been set but likely will be about $750 to $1,200 a month, depending on the size of the apartment.
The apartments include original features from the building, such as brick walls, hardwood floors and tin ceilings, but also newer amenities, including granite countertops and cast-iron bathtubs and showers.
“The best of the old touches with the best of the new touches," Chalfant said.
