COVINGTON KY NEWS | Attorney saves old building on 4th Street

1. Revived look for old building on
4th Street once slated to be torn down.

Sure looked like this old building at 121 East 4th Street would meet the wrecking ball. Put on the market for $225,000 in 2012, neighbor Legacy Financial wanted to buy it, tear it down and turn the site into a parking lot.

2. Then attorney Christopher Jackson stepped in.

Legacy Financial backed off after hearing of protests from a few preservationists. So attorney Christopher Jackson ended up grabbing the building and fixed it up.

3. Now he's trying to sell the old location.

Mr. Jackson's old office at 713 Scott Blvd. remains on the market. Originally asking $225,000 ... the price was lowered to $185,000 on December 31st.
