"This project couldn't be more a part of our DNA at the Salyers Group. Sometimes the scale terrifies us but we couldn't be more excited."
Guy van Rooyen, president of the Salyers Group (and CEO of Covington-based Donna Salyers' Fabulous Furs), thrilled the room while, for the first time, sharing images and new details about the ambitious Hotel Covington project during a luncheon hosted by the Covington Rotary Club.
Most exciting was the news that, "we're really close to being able to swing hammers".
The Hotel Covington is a more than $25 million development that will turn City Hall, the former Coppins department store building, into an independent, luxury boutique hotel with an eye on redefining the experience of Downtown Covington's Madison Avenue.
