I absolutely adore the general area that stretches from Grinstead exit off 64 to Cherokee Park, Cave Hill, then Bardstown and Baxter. I know the closest suburb and name for this area would be the Highlands but is there maybe another name locals use the reference general Triangle of Grinstead-Bardstown-Baxter? Or would I be incorrect in summarizing the entire area as the Highlands?

The Highlands is a generic term for about a dozen neighborhoods.

In purple, you will find many of the neighborhood name here.

The area you enjoyed was Cherokee Triangle. Yet, the colloquial term Highlands would have been just as correct to describe the area. IMO this is the premiere urban area in middle America between Chicago and Atlanta.

And it is only getting better. New businesses pouring in, and plans for several high-rises and upscale apartment projects. Here is a plan for one of the skyscraper projects, which I think is very likely to get built in some form.

Density, height of more than $200 million Grinstead Drive project raises concerns - Insider Louisville


This proposal is smaller at 17 stories, but I think unlikely to rise as it is square in the heart of the neighborhood.

Willow Grande • Residential Properties • Jefferson Development Group

Although there are several midrises on the same block, ranging from 7-25 stories.

Peter is correct that the Highlands is the name for the greater region of town that includes many neighborhoods. I call anything south of I-64 from Story Ave to near I-264 the Highlands. Grinstead Dr is a much more enjoyable drive since going on a lane diet a couple years ago.

Did they add or take away lanes? I agree it was easy breezy.

Yes, we (my fiancé and I) passed up the 1400 Willow units which are deceptively big for such a quaint, suburban area. I wouldn't have known the name of the unit from memory but google helped me out!

They took a road with 4 narrow lanes and made it into 3 lanes with bike lanes on each side within the footprint of the old road.
