Germantown Mill Lofts // Holiday Happenings // Tips from LMPD

Preview of the Germantown Mill Lofts
This past Saturday, a portion of the new Germantown Mill Lofts were available for neighborhood residents and potential GML residents to view. The "Warehouse Building" open for preview is the smaller building at the back of the development that has 16 loft and studio style apartments. The first level, boasting eight bi-level, open floor plans, rent in the ballpark of about $1,050 per month. The floor above it also has eight units, but units are much smaller compared to the ground level. They rent for about $650 per month. Units in this building are almost fully occupied.

Underhill Associates were true to their word: the historical and architectural charm has been preserved while providing modern amenities. Exposed beams, brick, and duct work blend seamlessly with granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, barn-style doors (great for small spaces), marble tiled bathrooms, and fresh drywall. The ground floor is poured concrete, while the building's original wood floors can be found on higher levels. Despite their age, the wood is gorgeous and full of character.

There will be two more phases that will be opening in coming months. We'll keep you up to date on when to expect those open houses.

It's important to note that an individual (or few) have been walking around Schnitzelburg, Shelby Park, Old Louisville, and surrounding areas at night and looking for unlocked cars. Dozens of reports have been noted over the past few months. Thieves are searching for money and electronics, so be sure to not keep anything valuable in your vehicle and to keep your vehicle locked at all times. If you see something suspicious, call LMPD (502.574.7111).
