Ceremonial turning of dirt
We had the pleasure of heading to Covington, Kentucky this week for the groundbreaking of our newest mixed-use, luxury apartment development – RiverHaus.
A $50 million mixed-use, luxury residential apartment development at the former site of Mainstrasse, RiverHaus consists of 192 luxury market rate apartment homes and 3,100 square feet of retail. Comprised of studios, one and two-bedroom apartment homes, the development will boast the finest amenities in the Northern Kentucky market.

“This project is going to build on and add to the quality of life here on Mainstrasse,” said Covington Mayor Joseph Meyer.
Residents will enjoy nearly 7,000 square feet of amenities, including an amenity courtyard, featuring fire pits, bar, lounge areas, grilling station, and saltwater pool with a large wet deck. A sky deck will give residents views of the Covington and Cincinnati skyline. Interior features include a coffee lounge, club room, conference room, pet wash, bike storage and repair, gaming and study lounge and 24-hour fitness center featuring Fitness OnDemand®. The project includes a guest suite and concierge services.
“Everyone who lives in Covington will benefit from the impact this development will have,” said Flaherty & Collins Properties CEO David Flaherty.
Apartments will include polished quartz kitchen countertops, cultured marble vanity tops with integral sinks, tile backsplash in kitchen, stainless steel appliances, undermount faucets and sinks, LED lighting in entries, kitchens, bathrooms and closets.
“This project has been the vision of the city of Covington and we couldn’t have done it without them,” said Flaherty & Collins Properties lead project developer Deron Kintner. “We are very excited to partner with the City of Covington on this fantastic new mixed-use development, which we believe will be the destination for luxury urban living in Covington.”
