“Corporex is excited to welcome Hemmer Construction Company as the prime contractor for the final building phase of The Boardwalk Residences,” said Bill Butler, Founder and Chairman of Corporex. “Hemmer has been a great asset on the landmark OneNKY Center in Covington we are developing. The company has a proven history of completing complex, large-scale projects on time and within budget, which makes them the perfect partner for bringing to life the third residential building at Ovation.”
Ovation is a nearly 25-acre, five city block equivalent urban, mixed-use development along the confluence of the Ohio and Licking Rivers in Northern Kentucky.

The community is host to a world-class music venue, state-of-the-art office buildings, residential options, hotels and open spaces.

Once complete, Ovation will be an iconic regional destination, offering unique public artworks, restaurants, bars, and experiences to visitors, connecting residents and the community directly to the rivers with an unbeatable view of the Cincinnati skyline. To learn more visit
