New CentrePointe renderings show street-level entrance for Jeff Ruby's

New renderings released Wednesday provide a fresh perspective on the CentrePointe development in downtown Lexington, which will go before the Courthouse Area Design Review Board on Aug. 21.

The designs are from Lexington's EOP Architects and CMMI in Atlanta and are filed with the review board.

Developer Dudley Webb said the renderings are refinements of those released last week and add color.

"We still have to go through the approval process, but we're close," Webb said Wednesday.

CentrePointe construction would begin with its 700-space parking garage, Webb said last week. Pending approval of the review board, construction is likely to begin in October, he said.

The renderings show a street-level entrance for Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse.

Webb met with city officials on Aug. 8 to lay out details of construction of the development, which is projected to cost $393.9 million, including financing.

In July, Lexington's Urban County Council approved a new CentrePointe master development agreement, which included plans for a hotel; apartments; space for offices, retailers and restaurants; and a three-story underground parking garage.
