This Downtown Covington Building May Be the Next Big Project Here
The next feather in the cap of downtown Covington's renaissance may be the Bradford Building.
As Covington's urban resurgence continues through the redevelopment of its historic building stock, the next project involves a connection to one of the city's most prominent historic figures, too.
The Bradford on Scott, LLC, purchased the building at 326-336 Scott Boulevard. That LLC is owned by the Catalytic Fund, the organization that has spearheaded, planned, and helped provide financing for some of Northern Kentucky's most important urban redevelopment projects, including the neighboring Boone Block - where 9 luxury townhomes now stand.
According to Jeanne Schroer, president and CEO of the Catalytic Fund, the purchase represents the first step in the process of executing the restoration and adaptive reuse of the building.
“We had the opportunity to acquire the property and wanted to obtain site control to ensure that quality development occur in this key location in Covington," Schroer said. "We also wanted to stabilize and secure the building to prevent further deterioration of this historic asset.”
