28. Covington Riverfront Development District
As you are crossing the river you will notice a group of buildings to the right. This is part of the Covington Riverfront Development district. Originally started in 1991, the project has grown from a few hotels to office space, restaurants, businesses, and a new conference center. When the district started, there was Covington Landing – a floating barge with restaurants and entertainment. In the mid 1990’s the barge was removed because of the high cost of maintenance. There are plans to build another landing but this time it will be built on stilts which would erase the issues the former had with debris and floods.
