An indoor athletic center has been proposed just a few blocks from a planned soccer stadium in Butchertown.

Kablooey LLC, a company owned by Louisville developer Andy Blieden, filed a revised development plan with Louisville Metro Planning & Design Services this week to change the use of a warehouse at 1014 and 1016 Franklin St. to an indoor athletic facility. The 5,400-square foot building was constructed in 1964.

Blieden said in an interview that he has a tenant in mind who wants to revamp the space into an indoor gym and training center. The building has been used for storage but is set to become vacant soon, Blieden said.

“If you’re a pitcher, you could work out indoors during the offseason," Blieden said of the athletic complex. "They liked the idea that it is close to the new stadium."
