The developers of the Marshall Louisville, a new unaffiliated off-campus student apartment complex currently under construction, have shut down W. Brandeis Ave. from February of 2019 until the summer of 2020 (when construction on the Marshall is projected to end) and set up the leasing office for the Marshall in a trailer in the middle of the street.

The street is in the center of UofL's campus. Students, faculty, staff, and visitors to the University often drove through it as the most direct path between 3rd St. and 4th St., two of the busiest streets running through campus. The closure of W. Brandeis Ave. has forced drivers to use alternate routes, the most dangerous of which involves cutting through a very busy parking lot next to the trailer to get around it. The closure also impacts the response time of emergency service vehicles - the loss of the most direct route between busy 3rd St. and 4th St. hampers their ability to respond to emergencies quickly.

The developers of the Marshall shut down this key street for their leasing office to target and advertise to students without any permission from or communication with the University. The students of UofL are opposed to the obstruction of this vital street and request that the developers of the Marshall work with students and move their leasing office to a better location for everyone.
