LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A $755,000 green roof and private event space will be installed atop the 16-story Brown Hotel at 335 W. Broadway.

Pavers, outdoor furniture and boxes containing plantings will be added to the roof, according to an application filed with Louisville Metro Planning and Design Services on Monday. The application makes no mention of a restaurant, bar or other public space atop the historic hotel.

Officials at the Brown declined to discuss the plans ahead of a media event scheduled for Wednesday morning.

"Local lore is filled with stories of garden parties and lively dances on the Brown Hotel’s roof and now new memories will be made atop the iconic Louisville hotel," according to a media advisory for the Wednesday event.
