Expanded student housing for UK

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Big Blue Nation is getting even bigger, as a private developer plans to build expanded housing University of Kentucky students.

The developer is planning to build more dorms on a 10-acre site currently owned by The Red Mile's Standardbred Racetrack in Lexington.

The plan includes four-story buildings with 832 beds.  It would include a swimming pool, exercise center, and outdoor courts for volleyball and basketball.

The developer has requested a zoning change.  If approved, construction is set to begin next year and the housing is set to open in the fall of 2013.
