Kaden Companies Acquires High-Profile Property in the Heart of St. Matthews

(Louisville, Kentucky) – June 18, 2021 Local Real Estate Investment/Development firm, Kaden Companies, has acquired the Galleria of St. Matthews. Located at 4101 Oeschli Avenue, The Galleria is situated between Sears and Thierman Avenues with visibility from Shelbyville Road. Kaden’s plans to fully redevelop the property, which sits on 2 acres in the heart of St. Matthews, include 23,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, and a proposed second floor with 4,000 – 10,000 square feet of office or medical space.

The former Galleria of St. Matthews building was condemned in 2019 after issues with the truss system caused a roof collapse. The once-bustling strip has stood empty for two years. Kaden Companies is eager to build a welcoming new space in which businesses can flourish.

“We are thrilled to work on the redevelopment of the site,” said Alexander Blieden, Executive Vice President of Kaden Companies. “St. Matthews is one of the highest barrier to entry markets in the city. The positioning of the site will give us an opportunity to cultivate a unique mix of restaurant, retail, medical, and service-oriented tenants. We anticipate beginning construction before year-end.”
