National and local leaders came together today to celebrate as Community Ventures, a Kentucky-based nonprofit corporation, broke ground on Louisville's first kitchen incubator, Chef Space, located in the Russell Neighborhood. Chef Space will occupy the former Jay's Cafeteria and will provide commercial kitchen space and business support services for up to 50 food- related early stage businesses. The facility will also house a retail outlet and meeting spaces open to the community. Community Ventures is renovating the 13,000-square-foot site with a late October opening planned as the first phase of a comprehensive neighborhood revitalization project.

Louisville Central Community Centers has raised more than $10 million to fund to redevelop facilities at its headquarters at 13th Street and West Muhammad Ali Boulevard.

The renovations include a nearly completed 19,000-square-foot small-business incubator. As it stands, the building is mostly empty, with spaces to be fitted out as offices for 12 to 15 companies.

The nonprofit needs about $140,000 more to finish the incubator space and open it for businesses, said Sam Watkins Jr., president and CEO of LCCC. "We are awful close to making it happen."
