In the culmination of a five-year project involving the revitalization of the old Bavarian Brewery into Kenton County’s new Administrative Campus, Elevar is also helping to transform the city-county administration building and jail into The Hayden, a mixed-use project in the Roebling Point area of Covington. The Hayden will provide 133 apartments and 6,000 SF of retail space, a total investment of more than $31.4 million.
The Hayden will have a mix of 35 studios, 59 one-bedroom apartments and 39 two-bedroom units, along with a variety of Amenity Spaces for apartment residents. The first-floor commercial space will likely be able to accommodate two or three tenants, with the possibility of providing operations and storage space for the weekly Covington Farmers Market. As part of the project, the building will be stripped to its 1969 concrete core, with a new exterior that includes balconies. Two floors will be added to its height. Other portions of the project will include gutting the interior and removing the jail cells, demolishing the low-rise addition to the building that fronts Scott Street, and adding a new surface parking lot on Scott Street.
This joint city-county government center built more than 50 years ago will become home to hundreds of people and bring more life into the area.
