The work continues at the Louisville Thoroughbred Society, which will be housed in the historic Hughes Lofts at 209 East Main Street in downtown Louisville.

The parking garage is going up.

The North staircase tower has new metal stairs now installed.

The front of the building is getting a new look.

And, windows are being popped into the LTS’ “Library” on the second floor.

New doors are being chiseled through the brick walls.

Electric is being run through conduit to all the outlets.

Most of the plumbing has been installed.

And, the duct work for the heat and air conditioning is all up.

It won’t be long now.

Come take a look.
