NEWPORT, KY (FOX19) -

Newport City Commissioners approved a contract for a new multi-million dollar apartment complex on Monday.

The $10.5 million development will be in effort to help revitalize the Monmouth Street business district.

Towne Properties, the developer in the project, is scheduled to break ground on the nearly 100-unit apartment complex within the next few weeks.

The complex, named 'Saratoga Flats' will be located one block south of Newport on the Levee.

Project officials say Newport's new complex will look similar to Covington's Roebling Row Apartments.
