Video shows what CentrePointe will look like when completed in 2050


Believe it or not, the CentrePointe development in downtown Lexington is still expected to be completed. It’ll probably be hundreds of years from now and we’ll all be dead when it’s finally done, but developers insist it will one day be open for business.

A commercial real estate development group called the Webb Companies, the mastermind behind the whole thing, gave us a look at what to expect when it shared a fly-by video on its Facebook page showing what CentrePointe will look like when it is no longer a big hole in the ground.

And I must say: it looks like a nice downtown development for Lexington.

Our grandchildren are going to love it.

    I liked it better as a polo field. ONIONS!

    I liked the field in the middle of downtown. I was told the city (tax payers) is paying for part of the development to be finished is this correct?

      Nope. The city is contributing nothing but the inconvenience of having a construction site in the middle of downtown for the next 15-20 years

    By the time Centerpointe is finished, its architecture will be thought of as “classical”

    I hate trying to go anywhere downtown because parking is always an issue. Yes, I realize this place will have dedicated parking, but there needs to be more easily accessible and reasonably priced parking downtown. God forbid a person might want to come down and visit a few of the local establishments while there is an event going on somewhere, such as something at Rupp, for example… then every public parking lot price is doubled, if not more.
