Capital Plaza Complex Redevelopment Project

Capital Plaza Complex Redevelopment Project

Welcome to this website. The goal is to provide up-to-date and accurate information regarding the redevelopment project for the Capital Plaza Complex in Downtown Frankfort! Please check back regularly as updates will be as they become available.

For many years the Finance and Administration Cabinet's Department of Facilities and Support Services has advocated for a new building to replace the functionally obsolete Capital Plaza complex that is nearly 48 years old. Costly maintenance issues and cost overruns, along with potential safety issues, were thoroughly analyzed before the cabinet concluded the most effective solution is to demolish current structures and replace them with new energy efficient and modern ones.

In early November 2017, CRM/DW Wilburn #2 LLC of Lexington was selected to design, build, finance, and operate a new 385,500-square-foot, 1,500 employee office building and 1206 space parking structure. Developer CRM and construction contractor DW Wilburn have partnered on this project in response to a request for proposal (RFP) that encompassed not only the new construction, but also the demolition of other Capital Plaza Complex structures. 

This is the sixth build-to-suit project the state has done since 2008. The most recent one in Frankfort was the 300 Building on Sower Boulevard, also developed by CRM/DW Wilburn. Final determination of agencies that will move to the new building has not been made.
