The Glassworks District features mixed-use urban buildings in a planned downtown neighborhood that anchors the west end of downtown Louisville’s Central Business District. This vibrant community features a mix of glass art studios, galleries, restaurants, live music and other events, retail and office space, as well as urban lofts and condos, many with city views.

The location allows for an engaging downtown live/work/play lifestyle, within walking distance of the Central Business District as well as many cultural amenities.

The Glassworks Building is the center of this exciting district, located in the renovated Snead Manufacturing Building. Built in 1909, this structure was widely regarded as the city’s ugliest building in the late 1990s. With Weyland Ventures as lead designer and developer, this former eye-sore, once slated for demolition, opened as a multi-use facility in 2001 with the first urban loft apartments in downtown Louisville.

Weyland Ventures continues to manage the buildings in the Glassworks District including Glassworks, Glassworks II, and ZirMed Towers.
