First building by former Koolhaas partner to be taller than planned 

Plans for Museum Plaza, a mixed used complex which when built will be the tallest building in Louisville, Kentucky just got bigger. The sky-altering riverside project, designed by Joshua Prince-Ramus formerly of OMA New York and now heading Ramus Ella Architects (REX), will grow from 21 to 61 stories. The complex is composed of four separate legs, each holding a different function, that are tied together by a multilevel arts center housing an acre-size garden 22 floors above grade. The building will house a non-profit multimedia art museum, 300,000 square feet of office space, 150 condominiums, 85 lofts, 300 hotel rooms and an array of retail and entertainment outlets. The University of Louisville will also locate its Master of Arts Program and Museum in the complex. Completion of the project is slated for 2010.
