Hopefully this will be the last time the subject of Covington Landing comes up.  Hopefully all future stories in this thread will be about new construction.  R.I.P., piece of crap.

 

Landing barges sink in Ohio

Craft goes down at Owensboro

BY MIKE RUTLEDGE | ENQUIRER STAFF WRITER

 

Two barges that once supported an Ohio River entertainment spot, Covington Landing, accidentally became riverbed debris Wednesday in Owensboro.  "The word is that they're now at the bottom of the Ohio River," said Covington City Manager Jay Fossett. "And thank God it's in Owensboro and not Covington."

 

The bad-news barges had been a Covington albatross for several years, after the city bought the floating facility out of bankruptcy and had trouble selling it.  Covington Landing through the years housed several restaurants and bars, including Howl at the Moon Saloon, TGI Friday's, Applebee's, Sleepout Louie's and Yucatan Liquor Stand.

Landing's problems live on

Support barges sank this week

By Dan Hassert  Post staff reporter

 

Even in its death, Covington Landing is a source of consternation.  At one time, the big question was why the floating entertainment complex wasn't succeeding financially at its mooring spot near RiverCenter in Covington.

 

Now the question is why did the barges that formed the foundation for the landing sink this week while waiting to be cut into scrap at a barge terminal near Owensboro.  The company that owns what's left of the Landing, essentially two barges welded together, says it's not sure why it sank, but it wasn't because its workers didn't know what they're doing.

 

Some people familiar with the leaky history of the complex suggested Thursday it went down because dock workers weren't prepared to handle the leaks, but that wasn't true, said Rick Rainey, a spokesman for Kinder Morgan, the owner of the western Kentucky terminal.

 

In fact, Rainey said, the leaks everybody was talking about were unrelated to the sinking, according to dock workers' accounts.

Q&A: Mike Hammons, A.J. Schaeffer

Vision 2015 must translate into economic leverage

Cincinnati Business Courier - May 12, 2006

 

Now that Northern Kentucky has a new vision for the region's future, the pressure is on.  And few people feel that pressure as much as A.J. Schaeffer and Mike Hammons.

 

Schaeffer, a partner with the law firm Greenebaum Doll & McDonald PLLC, is chairman of the Regional Stewardship Council formed to oversee implementation of the region's Vision 2015 plan.  Hammons will lead the organization that will staff the council's work. Formerly known as Forward Quest, Hammons' organization will adopt a new name in the coming weeks to reflect the work that will become its focus.

 

The Vision 2015 strategic plan was developed after talking to nearly 2,000 residents over the course of a year. It calls for changes in education, economic development and even the cultural climate of Northern Kentucky to position the region for growth and prosperity.

State grant helps arts district

Money will help to building that will house studios

BY MIKE RUTLEDGE | ENQUIRER STAFF WRITER

 

COVINGTON - The city and an architectural firm have won a $450,195 state grant for the Covington Artisans' Enterprise Center, which is to have up to 20 artist studios at 25 W. Seventh St.

 

"We are accomplishing three or four major things with this grant," said Covington Renaissance Manager Kathie Hickey, who wrote the grant request.

Bellevue park location raises concerns

BY KATIE WEITKAMP | COMMUNITY RECORDER STAFF WRITER

 

BELLEVUE -- The quick sale of condominium units at WatersEdge at Bellevue has developers changing their plans.  On Wednesday, May 10 Bellevue City Council approved an amendment to the site plan for phase one of the project that added a third 12-unit building to the development.  But that requires a move in the site of Taylor-Snodgrass Park, which has upset some residents.  The city required the developers to build the park as part of the approval process.

 

Dave Boguszewski, who lives on Washington Avenue, said the park relocation to the eastern-most side of the eastern-most building, would cause problems for his property.  He said when the park was located at the end of Washington a path was worn through his yard that people would use as a short cut.  He said he put up a fence on his property to deter this, but people would walk around that fence and still cut through his yard.

 

Council asked staff members to research what value the park would be in that location, or if the city would be better served with a park in another location.

Residents unhappy with development

BY KATIE WEITKAMP | COMMUNITY RECORDER STAFF WRITER

 

BELLEVUE -- Residents near the Bellevue Hilltop Development are not happy with the effect construction is having on their property.  But the developer of the property says the problems are being addressed.

 

At the Wednesday, May 10 city council meeting Ross Avenue resident Mary Hill asked the city to help solve problems between the developers and current residents.  The development is two sets of three townhomes in the area of Ross Avenue, Lake Street and Robson Alley.

Starbucks!  Taco Bell!  THE MOST CONTEMPORARY DOWNTOWN IN AMERICA!!!

 

 

Aging Mall Road rejuvenated

Starbucks a start in city's plan to spur the strip's development

BY BRENNA R. KELLY | ENQUIRER STAFF WRITER

 

There's a lot of development brewing on Mall Road including the city's first Starbucks.

 

Along the aging retail strip, new buildings are popping up, old buildings are being renovated, and new stores are opening. All signs that the city's plan to revitalize Mall Road is taking hold.

 

"We are very pleased with the amount of progress," said Rick Lunnemann, Florence's community development director. "And we believe as progress continues, additional development or redevelopment will occur."

"It will be larger than most Starbucks, offering more food options and a drive-through."

 

are among the many things that contradict:

 

"the entire face of the road would change from a 1970s type of design into a modern, urban village design."

 

All the trees, sidewalks, bike paths, street lights, entry signs, and large roundabouts in the world will not create an "urban village."  Without having a complete plan for retrofitting the area at the beginning, this will become just as dated as it is now in 15-20 years time.

Bellevue's Harbor Greene tweaks plans

BY KATIE WEITKAMP | COMMUNITY RECORDER STAFF WRITER

 

BELLEVUE -- Residential units in a new riverfront development are selling well, but office space hasn't made much of a splash.  City council unanimously approved changes to the Harbor Greene development Wednesday, June 14.  Developers said the change is needed because of lack of interest in office space.

 

Dobbs Ackermann, president and CEO of the Ackermann Group, which is planning the project, said after four years they need to change plans for the second stage of development.  Originally, plans called for a building housing retail shops, a restaurant, a Gold's Gym and 91,000 square feet of office space.  "We've had great success in finding a retail partner with Gold's Gym," Ackermann said.  "Unfortunately, that hasn't been the case finding an office partner." 

 

He said because the Ackermann Group is interested in continuing with development and being a good partner with Gold's Gym, they would like to start developing a different building.  The building will keep the two-story Gold's Gym, retail area and 25,000 square feet of office space.  It will not include a restaurant.

Proposed studio up for sale

BY MIKE RUTLEDGE | ENQUIRER STAFF WRITER

 

COVINGTON - The downtown building that city officials hope someday will house a Covington Artisans' Enterprise Center with studio spaces for 17-20 artists was put up for sale Friday.

 

That could complicate a move into the 20,000 square feet of space at 25 W. Seventh St., including possibly forcing a move elsewhere in the city's new arts district, officials said.

Open-air mall for Florence

Mall Road Shoppes gives breath of fresh air

BY JAMES MCNAIR | ENQUIRER STAFF WRITER

 

FLORENCE - With all the people and money pouring into Boone County in recent years, a "lifestyle" center is probably long overdue.

 

The Mall Road Shoppes of Florence will be a step in that direction. It's not a Crestview Hills Towne Center or a Streets of West Chester. But when it's completed this fall, it will sport a look similar to the open-air mixed-use centers popular in so many suburbs.

Finishing touches being made to food court

BY LINDSAY KOTTMANN | COMMUNITY RECORDER STAFF WRITER

 

FLORENCE -- It's only a matter of weeks before Florence Mall shoppers will have access to the new food court, carousel and spacious family bathrooms that have been in the works since January.

 

The two-story, green and purple glass entrance visible from the parking lot between JC Penny and Macy's is still surrounded by a fence; however, shoppers will soon be able to see a double-decker carousel through its colored windows.

Mall renovations praised

BY BRENNA R. KELLY | ENQUIRER STAFF WRITER

 

 

FLORENCE - Bright, spacious and modern.

 

In the new Florence Mall food court, 320 square feet of skylights let the natural light pour in. Music plays as the double-decker carousel spins against a rounded glass wall.

 

Most importantly, shoppers grabbing lunch should have no trouble finding a place to sit.

 

After more than seven months of construction, Florence Mall will celebrate the food court's grand opening Thursday.

As of right now, life at the mall is a little bit tastier and a little more festive. That's because Florence Mall's multimillion dollar Food Court renovation (owners General Growth Properties won't say exactly how much it cost) is finished and being unveiled during a Renovation Celebration Weekend.

Construction continues on Planetarium

Despite setbacks, opening still set for January 2007

Brianna Bodine Issue date: 8/23/06

 

After an investment of $2.35 million, Northern Kentucky University is months away from sporting a state-of-the-art planetarium, one of six like it in the United States.  In May 2005, construction began on the Haile Digital Theater, which will serve as a digital classroom and a venue for educational outreach. The planetarium first show, "Imagination, Art and Science," is scheduled for January 2007, followed by "Secret of the Cardboard Rocket" in March or April.

 

Besides some minor setbacks, the project is mostly on track. "I think we will definitely be using it sometime in the spring semester," said Charles Hawkins, chair of NKU's Physics and Geology Department. "I'm not sure, at this point, whether I'll be able to schedule classes in there or not."

Greenhouse nearing completion

Water leaks faculty's main concern

Brianna Bodine Issue date: 8/30/06

 

If construction remains on schedule, the Northern Kentucky University botany department will move into the new rooftop green house by October.  The greenhouse will function as a hands-on lab for students, a production site for general lab specimens, and a research facility for faculty. Tours for school groups and special interest organizations will also be scheduled.

 

"Since the greenhouse is on the roof, we will not be able to develop theme gardens outside the building as we had hoped," said biology professor Larry Giesmann, "but individual laboratory classes can visit the facility, and small off-campus groups can be accommodated for educational outreach."

Duveneck awaits unveiling

Statue to invite visitors into arts district

BY MIKE RUTLEDGE | ENQUIRER STAFF WRITER

 

COVINGTON - Artist Frank Duveneck is finished and waiting for his pedestal.  The highly regarded 19th- and early-20th century painter's sculpture - which stands about 6-foot-6, including its attached base - has been completed by Union artist Matt Langford.  It now awaits its granite platform that will occupy a small triangular garden between Covington's Seventh, Washington and Pike streets.

 

It is to be unveiled Oct. 6.  "It's finished," Langford said. "It's at the foundry in Louisville. We've been waiting for the site to be prepared."  Construction was to start this week on what will be a pedestal for an image of the Covington-born man.  It shows him holding a portrait he painted of his wife, Elizabeth, who died in her early 40s, two years after their wedding.

 

The statue's unveiling is set for the evening of Oct. 6 during the Art Off Pike reception at 25 W. 7th St., the future home of the Covington Artisans Enterprise Center.  The event is open to the public and will feature entertainment, finishing touches for the nearby millennium mosaic bench project and announcement of winners of a juried art show.  The enterprise center, which has won $450,000 from the state, will help local artists market their work, particularly over the Internet.

Domain battle stays in court

BY MIKE RUTLEDGE | ENQUIRER STAFF WRITER

 

BELLEVUE - For the second time, an appeals court has told Campbell Circuit Court it must hold a hearing on whether Bellevue had enough evidence to force Florence Matthews to sell her house near the Ohio River. 

 

The property is on the easternmost part of the Harbor Greene mid-rise condominium and retail project site that Norwood-based Ackermann Group is developing.  Construction has started on the western area, and will move eastward toward the contested property, said Bellevue Mayor Jack Meyer.  "Her building would be taken more for a road reconstruction, actually, in my opinion, more than where a building's going to sit," Meyer said. "So it's not really anything of immediate concern - the project's not ready to get that far, anyway."

 

In 1981, Bellevue created an urban renewal plan, designating Matthews' land and other parcels as blighted.  In 1989, the city adopted a new plan, and Matthews' property was scheduled to be taken.  After the city tried to take her house in 2002, Matthews argued the city never told her the house was in the area.  But a Campbell Circuit judge discarded that argument, noting that as a member of the Planning and Zoning Commission in 1989, she voted for the plan.  The Kentucky Court of Appeals last year said Matthews' argument about being uninformed was "without merit and borders on being totally frivolous."

17 upscale homes to be built in Fort Thomas

BY JAMES MCNAIR | ENQUIRER STAFF WRITER

 

What home-building slowdown? Ashley Development of Edgewood is proceeding with plans to build 17 houses in Fort Thomas for $500,000 to $900,000 each. The single-family homes will be part of a development called The Pinnacle, adjacent to Highland Country Club on Alexandria Pike. The project is going through the governmental approval process.

 

Through July 31, building permit issuances in Northern Kentucky were down 26 percent from 2005, and builders are concentrating on finishing projects that are spoken for and finding takers for those that aren't. Ashley, however, sees an opening at the high end of the market.

 

Jason Yeager, Ashley's sales and marketing manager, said the homes planned for The Pinnacle will be designed by Studer Residential Design of Alexandria. They will have features that people expect in an expensive house: high ceilings, custom cabinets, granite countertops and mahogany front doors, to name a few.

Center reflects arts district growth

BY AMANDA VAN BENSCHOTEN | COMMUNITY RECORDER STAFF WRITER

 

A few years ago, the three-story building at 31-33 W. Pike St. was just another one of Covington’s vacant, historic buildings.  Today, it’s the Passionate Arts Center – a thriving cultural center in the heart of the Covington Arts District, which is generating buzz and growing rapidly.

 

"We’re stepping out and hoping other people catch the vision. I think Covington has the opportunity to be a really unique thing in Northern Kentucky," said owner Barb Ruh.  It’s one of few places in Northern Kentucky where people can rent space and work alongside fellow artists. But the city and its artists are working hard to bring more to the area.

Movie theater breaks ground

Project will further develop Mall Road

BY BRENNA R. KELLY | ENQUIRER STAFF WRITER

 

FLORENCE - By late next year, what is now a grassy area next to Florence Mall will be a 16-screen, state-of-the-art movie theater.

 

But it won't be a typical theater. The Cinema de Lux will include an in-house restaurant with a full bar, a luxurious lobby with a piano, rocking, reclining seats, a food court and waiters who bring food right to your seat.

 

The theater will be the first Cinema de Lux in Northern Kentucky. National Amusements operates two of the theaters in Louisville and one in Springdale, Ohio, about 40 miles north of Florence.

Fair paints Covington's future

BY SCOTT WARTMAN | ENQUIRER STAFF WRITER

 

COVINGTON - With dancing, singing and painting, Covington lured artists to its Westside neighborhood this weekend to show off what the city hopes will become an expanded arts district.  The second annual Art Off-Pike Neighborhood Art Show and Music Festival Friday and Saturday carried much of the eclectic creativity and energy city leaders say they want to bring to Covington's art district permanently.

 

About a year ago, the city created the Covington Artists Residential District and Covington Arts and Technology Zone on the west end, where the city plans to market properties to artists and technology companies. 

 

The efforts have paid off with more than 20 artists moving to Covington and setting up galleries or displaying their work in existing ones, said Jean St. John, director of community arts initiatives at the Center for Great Neighborhoods of Covington, one of the main organizers of Art Off-Pike.

Gateway center on rise

BY PATRICK CROWLEY | ENQUIRER STAFF WRITER

 

It's not that the Rev. Richard Fowler isn't thankful for the $16 million in state money being used to build Gateway Community and Technical College's new Allied Health/Sciences Center.  But during Thursday morning's ceremonial groundbreaking, Fowler, pastor of Covington's Ninth Street Baptist Church and a member of the Gateway board, figured while offering thanks he may as well push for more cash.

 

Gov. Ernie Fletcher, who arrived late because his flight was delayed, was amused to hear about Fowler's divine plea for funding.  "I leaned over to (U.S. Rep.) Geoff Davis and said 'What's this about the prayer and the reverend?' " Fletcher said with a smile. "He said he prayed for $500 million. We fell a little short so I guess there are a lot of projects in the future that will be developed."

Northern Kentucky officials and the federal government's General Services Administration will have to do some serious negotiating if the Northern Kentucky Convention Center is going to expand.

 

The center is landlocked at the southwest corner of Madison and RiverCenter Boulevard in Covington, surrounded by the two public streets and the Internal Revenue Service Center, which has its sprawling offices to the south and west of the 204,000-square-foot convention facility.

Residents complain of project runoff

BY SCOTT WARTMAN | ENQUIRER STAFF WRITER

 

WOODLAWN - Woodlawn hasn't changed much in 40 years.  A passerby wouldn't even know he entered the tiny town of about 100 homes, the newest built about 40 years ago. It is sandwiched along a hillside between Newport and Fort Thomas.

 

But right outside Woodlawn, on Fort Thomas' northern border, trees are being uprooted and soon 106 new single-family homes will be going up.  The 10-acre Fischer Homes development has some Woodlawn residents concerned about the future of their town.  They say runoff from the construction site has washed down their streets and ash from burning trees has coated the town.

 

Fischer Homes representatives say they are meeting standards.  They say the hill is stabilized, roads are being constructed and work on the homes will begin within two weeks.  The worst, they say, is behind them.  Woodlawn residents are skeptical.

First off, love this forum/website. 

 

Secondly, I moved to the area last year and have heard some coworkers talk about tax/general incentives for buying/rehabbing/residing in homes in Covington and Newport.  Any information would be greatly appreciated.

 

Also, are there Kenton or a Cambell county websites for foreclosure/tax sales or are these notices simply listed in the newspaper?  Louisville has a nice one for anyone who has time to kill

Mall Rd. trying to stay on top

By Greg Paeth

Post staff reporter

 

The sometimes maddeningly dense traffic, overflowing shopping carts and the third highest sales tax receipts for the state would seem to provide ample evidence of the economic good health of the City of Florence, Northern Kentucky's unrivaled retailing hub.

 

But city officials seem to realize that once you're on top, there's nowhere to go but down.
