The first phase of a large residential project began the demolition phase this week in downtown Covington. The project, which will be named Duveneck Square after famed Covington artist Frank Duveneck, will begin with 110 one- and two-bedroom living units along Washington Street between 7th and 8th Streets.
“To see the physical transformation of this area begin and knowing the significant investment being made is an awesome feeling," said Covington Mayor Sherry Carran. “Through the collaborative efforts and the focus of NorthPointe Group, the The Catalytic Fund, Kenton County, City staff & Commission, and the partnership with Covington Independent Public Schools on the Industrial Revenue Bonds, we are at a point where it is hard to deny the City is moving forward in a positive direction.”
This project comes on the heels of the recent opening of the $22M Hotel Covington, and represents the first in a wave of significant residential investments unfolding in Covington. A nearby related project is called 501 Main Street.
