New Beginnings for a Historic Neighborhood

New development and repurposing of existing sites helps historic Louisville neighborhoods evolve. Abandoned buildings are refurbished and transformed to serve a new purpose, and vacant lots become urban gardens. In Irish Hill, the revitalization of neglected properties along with new construction has attracted an influx of residents and entrepreneurs.


Axis on Lexington – new luxury apartments in Irish Hill – occupy land that once was home to a railcar processing facility. The creative use of this land has improved drainage and minimized flood risk for the adjacent Beargrass Creek, which is part of the reason Louisville Business First awarded the 2018 Best Residential Project Award to Axis.

Innovative Design

Unlike a modern highrise, Axis on Lexington consists of three separate apartment buildings. This layout allows for maximum green space – each building surrounds a private courtyard, which along with the other landscaped areas absorbs rainfall, preventing excessive runoff into the creek.


The courtyard design creates spaces for residents to enjoy, and the buildings create a privacy barrier surrounding the resort-style saltwater pool and sun deck.

Nearby Improvements

Across from Axis is Distillery Commons, a former warehouse and bottling plant, and Headliners Music Hall, the building that was originally a cafeteria for distillery workers. The Distillery Commons building is now home to several retailers and service providers, self-storage areas, and working spaces. Like Axis on Lexington, it’s also pet-friendly.

A True Sense of Community

Axis on Lexington is part of the Irish Hill neighborhood, but it’s also a community of its own. Common areas here – like our media and game room, and our private dog park – are meant to be shared. If you’re looking for luxury apartments in Louisville, Axis on Lexington is the place to be.
