After little turnover in the Newport Plaza I in the first 15 years since being built, another original tenant has closed its doors.
According to Jaimie Niemczura, Real Estate Manager for American Diversified Development, which owns Newport Plaza I and Newport Shopping Center I and II, Pizza Hut corporate offices have decided not to renew their lease in the end cap of the development.
Niemczura said that she believes that Pizza Hut, which is situated at 84 Carothers Road in Newport, has been renting that space since the plaza was built in 1992.
"We have had a lot of interest in the space already," she said.

Pizza Hut joins longtime tenants, Blockbuster Video and Star Computers to close, after being neighboring tenants in the Plaza for years. Jalapeño Express, which was owned by the same ownership group who owns Rio Grande in the same development, had a brief stay in the opposite end cap space of Pizza Hut in the aforementioned Blockbuster, before clearing way for Hot Head Burrito.
Casual Chinese, Great Clips and Jersey Mikes are now the longest tenured businesses in the development joining The Original Mattress Factory and Maxx Nails.
Calls to the Pizza Hut corporate offices have not been returned, but a call to the Highland Heights store, located at 2730 Alexandria Pike, confirmed that they will still deliver to the Fort Thomas area.
