Investment sales increased in the second quarter as more companies sought to relocate their headquarters within the Louisville business community. Multi-million dollar expansions by manufacturers, such as GreiffPackaging, Arroweye Solutions and Bluegrass Supply Chain Services LLC, have contributed to the high velocity of investment and stimulated job availability within the city.

Passport Health recently announced its relocation to the vacated 15.5-acre lot in West Louisville. The investment will help to expand the city’s healthcare system and likely have a positive impact the region, which has previously struggled to attract private investment.

Investment activity in both the suburban submarkets and the city’s CBD is expected to remain active as businesses continue to focus on the Northeast submarkets. In addition, newly vacated space in PNC Tower is expected to encourage future investments in the CBD.
