Led by architect and managing developer Bill Weyland, City Properties Group has overseen many challenging projects that have become some of downtown Louisville’s most iconic and distinctive landmarks. With a focus on creating districts, the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory, the restoration of the Henry Clay building, the Kentucky Opera building, the Glassworks building and its neighbor, the ZirMed Towers, plus the recent Whiskey Row Lofts redevelopment are some of the highest profile accomplishments. Each has had a positive impact on the city and become a welcome part of its landscape.
