LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A historic property is being sold after clearing the way for progress on the Downtown Crossing portion of the Ohio River Bridges Project.

The Ky. Transportation Cabinet bought the property as part of right of way acquisition for the Ohio River Bridges project.

Part of the building was demolished to make way for improvements to the Kennedy interchange.

The original building dates to 1906, with additions built around 1920 and 1952. The facility is more than 44,000 square feet. It's located one block from Louisville Slugger Field and adjacent to NuLu. 

The inside of the building includes exposed brick, winding stairs and the remains of infrastructure for producing ice. Loading docks are located at the rear of the building.

Two open houses will be held to give interested parties a closer look at the property. They're scheduled for November 2 and November 9, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. both days.

The building is being sold by sealed bid. Bids must be received before the scheduled bid opening, which is set for Tuesday, November 24 at 1:30 p.m. The Commonwealth of Kentucky reserves the right to reject any or all bids.
