The Province, a new student housing complex near UofL’s Belknap Campus, officially opened in August with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The first phase of the new development features 366 units, a community swimming pool, sand volleyball court and central clubhouse with a theater.
“It’s nothing like the student housing I lived in when I was in college,” University of Louisville President James Ramsey said during the ceremony.
The Province is the result of a public-private partnership between UofL and the Edwards Companies. An affiliate of Edwards called Edwards Communities will own, manage and maintain the property, which is affiliated with the UofL campus. The 43-acre site is in the Park Hill neighborhood just north of UofL’s main campus. The land was an abandoned industrial site once occupied by American Standard, a manufacturer of bathroom and kitchen fixtures.
