Most urban communities have buildings that need a lot of TLC, buildings that you wish would be demolished. Fortunately for us, Covington has more beautiful historic buildings than you can count (we’re not kidding, there are 17 historic districts).
While many of these structures are being lovingly restored by committed homeowners and business owners, some are in such bad condition that no one wants to touch them….except us.
Through our vast historic rehab experience (61 buildings and counting), we’ve witnessed the transformational impact that revitalizing the worst buildings can have on communities so we work with residents on ways to address these properties in their communities.
What do we offer?
We use different approaches when tackling the most blighted homes and lots:
We renovate vacant buildings into housing, live/work space, and commercial space
We provide construction expertise for owners who want to rehab their historic homes or buyers who are considering buying a home
We assist residents in acquiring vacant lots or buildings to transform them into side yards, rehabbed homes, or other uses that improve property values
We connect potential home buyers with neighborhood leaders, real estate agents, financial institutions, and other resources that can guide a successful investment
We partner with for profit developers on larger scale or mixed use buildings that align with our goals
Why does it matter?
We’ve seen the impact rehabbing one vacant house can have on the surrounding community: it improves safety, helps to stabilize the housing market, and instills a sense of optimism in other residents. We feel incredibly passionate about this last one because we’ve experienced firsthand all of the great ripple effects that come from a positive attitude about the future of your community.
What can you do?
Call or email us with problem properties in your community that you would like to find a solution for. We would love to help!
Most of our buildings sell before ever hitting the private market so get in touch with us to see if we have any properties available.
