This architect view of the new CentrePointe concept is from the intersection of Limestone and Vine streets. Developer Dudley Webb said the changes were driven by Marriott, which wanted to add extended-stay suites to the apartment complex.


In 2008, a $250 million project called CentrePointe was announced for downtown Lexington, a skyscraper that the developers said would reshape one of the best recognized corners in town. Five years later, it was a grass-covered pasture in the middle of town. Now construction has started on the underground parking garage.
