Check out the fantastic 24-acre food hub coming to Louisville!

In an ambitious effort to bring food producers and consumers closer together, OMA has developed a masterplan that consists of all stages in the food chain. To that end, the Food Hub design comprises a zigzagging built form framing outdoor public space on both sides and providing views out to the adjacent urban neighborhoods. The zigzag form also helps divide the logistics access from public access. Each of the building’s intersecting points serves as a major node that includes retail, processing, education, office, and production.
