A local commercial real estate development partnership has acquired more than a dozen properties in the heart of Covington and plans to invest millions redeveloping a portion of them.

 

Covington Yard, a entertainment spot with a bar and shipping containers holding food operators, is one of many redevelopment projects in the works in the heart of Covington.

This idea makes me think of this place in Portland me and my wife went to a few weeks ago called cartopia. Should be pretty cool.

I love Cartopia, and you are so right. This spot is perfect for it too. One day, if development pressure comes, it is easy to move. Added bonus. A more upscale version of this is 'Proxy' in Hayes Valley, San Francisco. Good to see this type of development in the Cov.

Verandas @ the Views, a $15 million luxury condominium development in Covington, has already sold three of its 18 units.

 

JoshuaOne, the developer of the Views in Covington, is wrapping up work on the 18-unit building. Paul Zeltwanger, managing member of JoshuaOne, said it closed on the first two sales this week.

 

“The momentum is cranking up,” Zeltwanger told me. “It’s special. It’s something we’ve been excited about for a year and a half.”

I love the idea of combining forces for NKY as a region and getting everyone under one roof. Considering the northern three counties are larger than Lexington/Fayette we should get way more on the state level than we currently do. That being said, the building as depicted is basically the Ascent turned on it's side so hopefully this is just an early place filler design.

Churchill Downs to buy Turfway Park

 

Jack Entertainment LLC, the owner of Turfway Park, has agreed to sell Turfway Park in Florence to Churchill Downs Inc.

 

A CDI subsidiary, NKYRG LLC, has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Turfway Park from Jack Ohio LLC and Hard Rock International for $46 million, subject to certain working capital and other purchase price adjustments.

 

The closing of the sale is contingent upon approval by the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission. The commission is scheduled to meet Oct. 8, and, if the change of control is approved, the parties anticipate closing on the transaction soon after.

100-acre residential development starts along Ohio River

 

sanctuaryvillageplat*750xx1650-930-0-153

 

Ashley Builders Group has broken ground on Sanctuary Village, a residential community on nearly 100 acres overlooking the Ohio River in Villa Hills.

 

Construction on Sanctuary Village is expected to begin this fall. Ashley Builders purchased the property in 2017 from the Benedictine Sisters of St. Walburg Monastery to fund their retirement. Jason Yeager, partner with Ashley Builders who oversees the residential division, said the Benedictine Sisters drove the idea to create something innovative and thoughtful with the property.

 

“We are so grateful the sisters decided to partner with us,” Yeager said.

 

The Ashley Builders team worked on the design concept for Sanctuary Village for more than a year, traveling to communities across the country to look at this type of development planning.

Turfway Park renovation plans revealed

 

turfway-groundview-with-logo*750xx3500-1

 

Turfway Park will get a new grandstand, bars and other amenities if Churchill Downs’ preliminary plans to rebuild the facility come to fruition.

 

Louisville-based Churchill Downs, which bought the Florence horse racing facility Oct. 9 for $46 million from Jack Entertainment and Hard Rock International, plans to build a 2,500-seat grandstand, a ballroom area and several bars at Turfway, according to plans Churchill Downs officials presented to Florence City Council Tuesday night. A rendering indicates a bourbon bar would be included at the facility.

 

The sale of the track was completed a day after the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission approved the deal.

Hotel Covington to expand as part of $22.5 million mixed-use project

By Tom Demeropolis  – Senior Staff Reporter, Cincinnati Business Courier

 

Salyers Group and vR Group plan to redevelop the former YMCA building and Gateway Bookstore in Covington into a mixed-use property.

 

The project would revitalize a visible corner of downtown Covington, transforming the 72,000-square-foot building at 19 E. Pike St. into a bourbon distillery experience, 10,000 square feet of office space and an expansion of Hotel Covington. The upper floors of the Covington YMCA will be converted into 60 VIP and presidential suites to complement Hotel Covington’s 114 existing rooms just to the south.

That's awesome news. After the Gateway proposal shrunk I was afraid this would sit vacant. Removing the brick on the Madison facade and bringing black a glass storefront will do wonders for the streetscape as well. 

 

I'm curious if they are going to connect the two buildings in any way or if the alley with the walk-up window will remain and they will act as two separate buildings.

This is pretty awesome for Covington and the tri state area in general.

 

It just gives Cincinnati as a whole and extra layer of entertainment depth and things to do. 


Great to see privately funded community spaces.

New oncology building at St. Elizabeth is looking good, and this is the back of it. I like that the terra-cotta panels kind of matches the brown brick used everywhere else on campus but the building still looks really modern and new.

Construction ramps up on luxury condo project in Newport

 

Work to transform the former Newport Baptist Convalescent Home into luxury condominiums is ramping up.

 

120 Main St. LLC, whose members include Ed Horgan, Marc Gilioli, Ben Trautman and John Trautman, are transforming the building into Skypoint Luxury Condos with total of 45 condos. Work is underway on the first phase including 21 condos plus the development’s amenity areas.

 

Horgan said about 60 tradespeople are in the building currently, working on plumbing, electricity and HVAC. The goal is for drywall to start going up next week.

 

As we toured the building this week, Horgan explained most of the first phase units have 63 linear feet of floor-to-ceiling windows with a view of the Cincinnati skyline.

More Graves Road pics (again...iPhone pics so sorry about quality and composition). This time from May 16. This project is flying along as expected.

 

This view is looking NE along the ROW of the new Graves Road as it approaches 275. This vantage point will be in the area where the cross-over sits.

I used to live in the area off 237.  Absolutely do not miss the crazy traffic out there!! This will alleviate some traffic but is just a band-aid.  The airport positioning to 275 and the surrounding terrain make designing roads extremely difficult.

Greater Cincinnati university building $27M dorm, first new residence hall in 17 years

 

A Greater Cincinnati university is building its first new residence hall in 17 years, a $27 million 297-bed dormitory across five stories.

 

Northern Kentucky University in Highland Heights broke ground May 28 on the five-story, 77,200-square-foot development, the first new student housing construction on campus since 2003. Construction on the project began in late April and is expected to be ready for occupancy for the fall 2021 semester. It will be the NKU's first housing complex to achieve LEED Silver certification upon completion.

 

The residence hall will house 297 beds in semi-suite style, with large lounge areas, meeting rooms and a lighted event plaza. Amenities include a hammock area and adjacent parking, large common space for leisure activities and student gathering, a double-sided demonstration kitchen, a large laundry facility and centrally placed study and meeting rooms on each floor.

Inspiring architecture.

With most of the buildings on campus being exposed concrete, this will bring some much needed warmth and color.

 

Moody Nolan can do good work, so I'm gonna mostly blame NKU (and the state's lack of a budget) for this one.

 I tend to respectfully disagree to an extent. There's a good "loop" of four lane access completely surrounding the airport. CVG and the surrounding few miles are the latest in NKY. Although, I do see where you are coming from when you consider some of the legacy roads that still exist with their switchbacks around CVG. Turfway Road being a good example. It's also true that some of the creek valleys are pretty dicey once you get further away from CVG. (Gunpowder, Elijah, Sand Run, etc.)

A couple more Graves Road pix from 6/4/20. I don't think this overall plan has evert been put up here so I've also included that first. Lots of fill and grading happening for this whole project since the realigned Graves Road is mostly being moved into a lower area of the terrain that includes a tributary of Woolper Creek.
