10 W. Pike Street

This mixed-use building in the heart of Covington’s Central Business District was purchased a couple of years ago by a Covington native. She was just completing a renovation of the building at 2 W. Pike St. when the chance to buy 10 W. Pike came up. She jumped at it because, she says, “when you get the opportunity to be neighbors twice over to such great projects as the Mutual Building, Hotel Covington and Braxton Brewery, you take it.”

The first floor commercial space is home to Karla Louise: Bridal Alterations, Accessories and Designs. The second floor apartment, which is on the tour, was a fun project. Originally two separate floors, the space now has a two-story living area with a loft bedroom on the second level. The 1,000 sft apartment is a great example of the huge windows, interesting details and cool floor plans you often find in urban renovations.
