801 Greer Street

When the realtor/developer owner bought this property, he knew it was the “worst one on the street.” Built in the late 1800’s for mixed use, the ground floor commercial space had been squared off, partially boarded up and turned into a sketchy apartment, and the other units weren’t much better. The transformation that has been achieved in only 10 months is impressive. The commercial space has become the owner’s office and, after business hours, a gathering space for the upstairs tenants. There are five apartments, four with one bedroom and one with two bedrooms. To add space and light to the third floor, four dormers were added, giving those apartments great livability, as well as skyline views. The original elements that have been reclaimed include the wood floors (except for the third floor, where they were rotten) and 11’ ceilings. The three doors to the commercial space were salvaged from another Covington building and the tables are made out of the old roof tresses. All the spaces have their own charm and are great examples of what urban living can be.
