Spotlight on: The Builders

The Builders

Abstract Construction Inc.
Charles Scott, President, Abstract Construction Inc., is glad he's involved in the Liberty Green redevelopment project that is revitalizing the east downtown Louisville neighborhood that has been the site of the Clarksdale public housing project for 65 years.
It's a personal issue for Scott.
Because he is an African-American and grew up in a "rough neighborhood" not unlike the Clarksdale area, Scott said, Liberty Green means a little something extra to him. He said it allows him to restore an area where African-Americans have made their homes.
Abstract will pull in more than $610,000 doing masonry, brick and tile work for the first phase of the Liberty Green project alone.
