AU Associates was founded in 1990 by Holly Wiedemann on the principles of Adaptive Use , and focuses on opportunities for urban infill as well as the revitalization of existing structures. AU has been directly responsible for creating over 1350 units of mixed income housing, 250,000 square feet of commercial space and over $200 million of projects across the Commonwealth of Kentucky and West Virginia. In June of 2010, Holly founded AU Construction, in order to vertically integrate the company and build all of the projects AU develops. In January of 2013, AU created its own management arm, AU Management, LLC, to manage all of our properties to ensure excellence at every level.
As AU Associates has grown over time, we have focused more on larger, urban infill developments. In 2021, after 31 years, AU’s succession plan is being implemented. Johan Graham, who served as the former Director of Development, began as the new President of AU Associates, Inc., in October of 2021.
Each of AU’s developments, now spanning three decades, have received numerous local, state and national awards.
AU works to enhance the communities in which our projects are located. AU’s projects have created more than 8,280 jobs throughout Kentucky and West Virginia, in addition to providing exceptional places to live, work, and play. Our mission is to make the places we create become an invaluable part of the community.
AU continues to grow and evolve in today’s ever changing housing market and is always seeking new and creative opportunities to generate exciting and livable communities. Please explore the AU website to see past and future projects, as well as potential leasing opportunities.
