On Sunday, June 22 from 2 to 6 p.m. as an initiative of the Kentucky Heritage Council; Southbank Partners and Northern Kentucky Main Street will be sponsoring the Southbank Downtown Tour of Urban Living. The tour will showcase distinctive living opportunities and the many great amenities and walkable convenience of downtown living in eight great Northern Kentucky cities. On this self-guided tour attendees will be able to visit more than 20 downtown living options in Bellevue, Covington, Dayton, Ft. Thomas, Ludlow, and Newport. There will be a diverse mix of property at multiple phases in development; from owner success stories to finished, for-sale and lease properties as well as properties available for renovation. Various price points will be offered within the exclusive downtown districts, which showcase unique floor plans and impressive interior design.
This doesn't appear to be a showcase event, rather an opportunity to match those interested in city living with available properties. The opportunities presented in Bellevue and Covington are probably the best looking properties. I applaud the decision to showcase the available properties in the Midway in an attempt to find good retail investors and those interested in rehabbing housing stock for owner occupied rather than rental units.
