Distribution center planned in Okolona area

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A warehouse large enough to house a distribution center with a few hundred employees is planned in the Okolona area. 

A group connected to Louisville's Flynn Brothers Contracting filed an application Monday to build a 403,000-square-foot warehouse on a vacant 24-acre site at 6023 Jefferson Boulevard.

The site is just north of Jefferson Mall and backs up to a subdivision called Sunshine Acres.

The warehouse will be “strategically located to support existing manufacturing in the vicinity,” according to the application filed with Louisville Metro Planning & Design Services.

The site is about 3 miles from Ford Motor Company's Louisville Assembly Plant.

The application does not say which company or type of business might operate the building.

Flynn Brothers Contracting President Bill Reed, who signed the document on behalf of property owner S & F Hotel LLC, did not immediately return a call on Tuesday.

A site plan shows room to park 64 truck trailers outside the building's loading dock and 282 parking spaces for employees.
