John R. Green Lofts to add to growing number of residential units in Covington

The John R. Green building, located at 411 W. Sixth St. in Mainstrasse Village, and surrounding lots will soon be redeveloped into 182 apartments. A four-story apartment building — the John R. Green Lofts — will be built on top of a three-story parking garage, with commercial space as well.
The John R. Green building will remain commercial property, with plans for a boutique grocery store on street level with offices above and a banquet hall on the top floor. The neighboring warehouse, including a mural, parking lot and community garden, will be removed to make way for the apartment project.
Moody Nolan Architects is designing the $38 million project that will yield 182 apartments, adding to the growing number of residential units in Covington.

Duveneck Square, which is located at Seventh and Washington streets, will yield 170 apartments.
