Louisville District Plans Downtown HQ Move

The Louisville Engineer District is taking steps to move its district headquarters farther into the heart of the central business district in downtown Louisville.

The district announced April 2 that it is seeking lease proposals for downtown office space.

“Relocating our district headquarters is not just about changing our address; it’s about positioning ourselves to better serve our workforce, our community and the American public for years to come,” said Col. L. Reyn Mann, district commander, in the announcement. “This move is about finding a state-of-the art, modern working environment that reflects our world-class organization. It also supports the local economy and a vibrant downtown.”

The district has been headquartered in the Romano Mazzoli Federal Building since 1969.

“We are the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Louisville District, and there’s no better place for us than the heart of the city we call home,” Mann said. “We are currently in the initial steps of collecting proposals for evaluation and hope to be in our new space by 2025–2026.”

The district is seeking proposals for approximately 150,000 square feet of rentable office space in the central business district. The space must be fully serviced, on contiguous floors and customizable/built to suit the government’s office and security requirements.
