LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -

A local developer is applying for tourism tax credits for a $28 million project to create a new arts and culture district in Louisville. 

The project will create a hub at Paristown Point that unites downtown, NuLu, Smoketown, Germantown and the Highlands.

"Louisville Stoneware, which is celebrating its 200th year -- which is really unique here in our city -- will be undergoing a $6 million renovation. Goodwood Brewery plans to build a $6 million brewery and brewpub, and the Kentucky Center is planning to build a new performance space here in Paristown Point," Explained Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer. 

In addition to commercial developments, the city is planning to contribute $1.6 million for streetscape and sidewalk improvements.
