Fort Thomas residents, Dan Gorman and David Hosea have moved in two new storefront retailers in Top This Donut Bar and the corporate headquarters for Colonel De Gourmet Herbs and Spices. Colonel De announced he would opening his storefront on Friday, April 22. 

Heather Hamlet and Kacy Cierly opened "The Perfect Space" in December on the third floor and there are active negotiations with multiple tenants for available space in the 22,000 square foot building that was once a theatre when it was originally opened in the 1920s.

Now, a new business has signed a lease for a space that was previously vacant for almost a decade.

A yoga studio will be moving into approximately 1,900 square feet, located about Colonel De's space.

Tiffany Brennan, Owner and Developer of the project will be teaching along with Jenny Rice, Shannon Norman Abbott, Ali Kazik and Jack Frank.

The space was previously occupied by Rekow and Stull Orthodontics for nearly 30 years, but the growth of their practice, now Stull Orthodontics, made the move to a larger location at 637 Highland Avenue necessary.

What's most impressive about the new space was the architectural surprises that were uncovered when Gorman's team began to prepare it for the new tenants.

Demolition of the space revealed the original arches and crown molding from the old Hiland Theater built in the 1920s. Gorman said plans to restore the walls to their original state are in the works.

"I uncovered some surprises above her drop ceilings and behind the drywall.  Architecturally, her studio is going to be one of the most amazing spaces in Northern Kentucky," said Gorman.

Similar surprises were revealed in the building when Gorman worked with Cierly and Hamlet to uncover the potential of 16-foot ceilings that was originally thought to only be half that high.
