Hi,

I am a young professional who will be working right on 4th street. I am looking for the best place to live. I am a single male with no children. I enjoy working out, as well as social activities. I want to live in a place that has a great social scene, people are active, clean and safe location. I have been living in highrises most recently. I am looking for a hip lively place.

Thanks

age? where on fourth will you work? there are several highrises that you would like downtown, but to be honest, you may enjoy the highlands/bardstown rd corridor as much or more. should you be coming from a larger city, the idea of renting a home or flat off craigslist from bardstown road may seem strange, but it is the most 24/7 young professional type of area. that sound, some downtown comlexes to consider would be anything owned by city properties incuding especially the henry clay, but also glassworks lofts and the new whiskey row lofts. i would also take a look at the st francis and the crescent centre. there are some cheaper highrise apartments but they arent nearly as upscale. two with good locations are kentucky towers and barrington place...great locations but more of a diverse clientele in the buildings, which os good or bad depending on your needs. you may also want to contact the starks buliding..i hear they have some rentals in there now.

in addition, there are several downtown highrise condos where owners rent their units. if you can get an affordable rental in say, waterfrontparkplace zirmed, or the levy building, then jump on it.

This is actually just across the river, in indiana, but seems like a nice deal

LUXURY RIVER FRONT 10TH FLOOR (http://louisville.craigslist.org/apa/2291460835.html - broken link)

That said, dont forget to search in all the other urban hoods, epecially the highlands, search my other posts on this board for other nightlife nodes

Believe it or not, minus the weather and beaches, louisville and tampa have a somewhat similar vibe. I travel to tampa often on business. city wise, they are similar in size and both have a lot of decidely "southern" people. the difference is tampa has a metro area that is nearly twice as big, so there are more nodes of things to do locally. That said, I think you will find bardstown rd/the highlands as an improvement over hyde park/ south tampa, which IMO is the coolest part of that metro area.

I might suggest Old Louisville, I lived there when I went to Law School. You might try the St James Court area.

I would recommend checking out NuLu (also called the East Market District). SoHo Lofts, in particular, is in an up and coming location with great restruants, galleries and just a couple of blocks from waterfront park.

You can't go wrong almost ahywhere, but as a general rule, being on the cherokee park side of bardstown road is considered more desirable...but if you are renting then who cares. Find some places on craigslist and I will tell you if I approve.
