LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It's a celebration of the construction of a new addition to downtown Louisville.

A groundbreaking ceremony will be held at 10 o'clock this morning for the Omni Louisville Hotel.

The development will include more than 600 hotel rooms and 225 luxury apartments on 30 floors. 

The bottom section of the hotel is also set to include a grocery store, various shops and restaurants, with an art gallery in the lobby. 

Dining options include a three meal a day restaurant, lobby lounge, rooftop pool bar and grill, as well as an iconic Bob’s Steak & Chop House as the hotel’s fine dining establishment.

When it's finished in the spring of 2018, the Omni will be Louisville's tallest hotel.
