Welcome

THE HUB FOR NEW IDEAS, SUPERIOR FLAVORS & SHAREABILITY

Starting from Scratch

CREATED TO SERVE YOU

It all started with a simple idea – the idea that our Lexington community deserved a collaborative space for exchanging; exchanging innovative ideas and concepts, exchanging business connections, and especially, exchanging laughs and stories over local food and drinks – thus The Cornerstone Exchange was born! This multipurpose space is a front door for the university and will house several Kentucky-based restaurants, as well as the UK Innovation Space, Esport facilities and Cornerstone Garage.

We were too excited to wait for everything to be ready, so we'll be opening in phases (as to not keep you waiting!) Phase 1 will be open to the public Fall Semester 2020, with Phase 2 close behind!

We're proud to serve UK campus and the greater Lexington community!

What Exactly is The Cornerstone Exchange?

IT'S A COMBINATION OF FOUR AWESOME SPACES

ESPORT FACILITIES

The theater features 100 seats on retractable risers, and the esports gamers lounge offers more than 50 PC-based gaming units and multiple console-play areas – allowing for daily use of the space as well as the ability to host esports tournaments and conferences.

CORNERSTONE GARAGE

UK has added more than 900 new off-street parking spaces that are conveniently accessible from anywhere on UK’s campus and are available to students, faculty and community members alike.

THE EXCHANGE

A unique, multi-vendor dining area on the ground level; created for the campus and community to exchange ideas, exercise innovation and experience local food and drinks. We are committed to featuring homegrown, Kentucky-based companies.
