Nucleus to host ‘topping off’ ceremony for new building

Structure will have green roof with plants native to Kentucky

The first new office and research building on the site of the old Louisville Haymarket property will be “topped off” during a ceremony Tuesday, July 31 at 10 a.m. on the corner of Market and Preston streets.

University of Louisville President James Ramsey and Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer are among those who will participate in the ceremony.

The Nucleus Research and Innovation Park-Market Street building has eight stories, 197,000 square feet and a green roof. It is expected to be LEED certified.

Tuesday’s event will feature a prototype of the green roof and some of the native plants which will be grown there, as well as an update on minority hiring and participation goals for the project.

Nucleus is Kentucky’s innovation center and an arm of the UofL Foundation.
