Barton's on Park Place to Be Razed for Parking Lot

The vacant Barton's on Park Place in Covington's Roebling Point entertainment district will be razed to make way for a parking lot, The River City News has learned.

The demolition may start as early as Monday following this weekend's RoeblingFest event.

The owners of the property appeared before the city's urban design review board in May to request permission to tear down the building.

At that point, plans were to raze the building but to leave the pergola and wisteria that feature prominently at the building's entrance.

No details on the what the parking lot will look like, how many spaces will be available, and what the long-term plan for the site is, were immediately available.
