We figured, like Aerosmith, you don’t want to miss a thing. So we took a look back at the 35 stories we shared in July and crunched some page view numbers to bring you LOUtoday’s greatest hits.
The Grand Reserve
A $140+ million travel-stop-meets-resort is being developed directly off of Exit 112 along I-65 in Bullitt County. A hotel, townhomes, upscale gas station, and multiple restaurants are just a few of the amenities planned for the Grand Reserve, which is slated to be open in 2026.
An overlooked piece of history that has sat vacant on River Road for years is being restored. The mannerist-style house was designed by its owner + prominent Louisville architect, James J. Gaffney, between 1910 and 1927. It might have one of the coolest roofs we’ve ever seen.
A 19th-century Barbie Dreamhouse
The “Barbie” movie release was all the sparkling, pink rage in July — so we joined the party and brought you a story about a real-life Barbie Dreamhouse in Old Louisville.
Name this neighborhood
We asked you to put on your thinking caps and try to identify a Louisville neighborhood based on a map void of its landmarks. Turns out, you all know the Audubon Park area pretty well.
While those stories racked up the most views, a few other things happened in July that are worth mentioning — like when this unlikely Germantown house went up for sale, a new Mediterranean restaurant opened on Bardstown Road, and Hogan’s Fountain Pavilion was demolished.
