Passersbys should see the Omni Louisville gaining some height.
The more than $300 million, 30-story hotel and residence should start adding two floors a month now that the foundation is in place. Workers have installed 1,200 pillars, totaling 17 miles in length, as part the foundation that will hold up the structure.

Construction “will really accelerate” once the fourth floor slabs and columns are in place, according to an update on the construction.
Well ahead of the 2018 opening, the Omni Louisville will unveil model rooms later this month to show what the hotel rooms will look like, the update states. The room design was influenced by aspects of Louisville’s culture and by city landmarks.
Also this month, work on the Second Street median will wrap up. The existing median will be removed and replaced with a double turn lane so hotel guests and residents can access the Omni Louisville once it opens.
