Work Delayed On What Would Be Ky.'s Tallest Building

LOUISVILLE, KY. -- (AP) - Early construction on what would be Kentucky's tallest building has been stalled because of drilling problems at the foundation.

The $490 million, 62-story Museum Plaza is being built near Louisville's waterfront.

In January, workers drilling into bedrock at the site created vibrations along Main Street. Craig Greenberg, one of the project's four developers, says workers have stopped that method of drilling.

He says that setback won't jeopardize the project. He did not say when it would resume.

The skyscraper will include a hotel, luxury condominiums, retail and office space and an art gallery. It's expected to be completed in 2011.
