Kentucky Select Properties Transforms Hilltop Theater Into Unique Office Concept (Insider Louisville, March 2019)

The former Hilltop Theater, which sat unused for years before being refurbished and opening as the cocktail bar Red Herring, has been reimagined as a unique workspace by Kentucky Select Properties. After Red Herring closed last August, the building’s owner, Mo Deljoo, hadn’t put it on the market, but Jay Gulick, the Kentucky Select Properties co-owner, knew the space well and was interested. While in talks to lease the building, located at 1757 Frankfort Ave., Gulick said he read a New York Times article that said restaurants in Manhattan had been sub-leasing dining room space during the daytime to help pay high Manhattan rent prices, opening the restaurant in the evening. Gulick saw something similar for Hilltop Theater. Read more.

"I mean, it's a gloomy February in Louisville, and people are coming in here with smiles on their faces and excited about working." Read more.
