A neighborly heads up: Concrete to be poured overnight next week at OneNKY Center

COVINGTON, Ky. – Neighbors of the OneNKY Center being built at Greenup Street and Roebling Way may hear trucks earlier than usual on Tuesday.

But don’t worry. It’s a special circumstance – not the new normal.

Officials from Paul Hemmer Co. said that Tuesday will be the first of three 3 a.m. concrete slab pours timed to beat morning rush hour traffic and to keep the rising temperatures of the day from interfering with its curing.

The other two 3 a.m. pours will take place April 26 and May 28, weather permitting.

“We will take all measures to reduce the noise and lighting as to not disrupt the local neighbors,” said Jeff Guenther, superintendent at Paul Hemmer Co.

Guenther said he has been meeting with residents and/or management of nearby complexes this week to give them a heads up.

About the building

Ground was broken on the $26 million OneNKY Center on Aug. 30, 2023, just south of the Gruff Restaurant. The office building will contain 43,000 square feet of space and house a variety of regional organizations, including the OneNKY Alliance, Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, meetNKY, BE NKY Growth Partnership, the Catalytic Fund of Northern Kentucky, Horizon Community Funds of Northern Kentucky, the Northern Kentucky Bar Association and the Covington Life Sciences Partners (CLSP). The latter will operate a 15,000-square-foot “wet lab” with bench space for lease.
