Removing original Newport on the Levee brick and mortar to help with remake of property
The new owner's of Newport on the Levee promised to refresh and renew the mall after purchasing it for an undisclosed amount in December of 2018.
North American Properties has begun making good on that promise with the announcement today that the building that housed Mitchell's Fish Market, a tenant at the Levee since 2001, would be torn down to make way for a new tenant. What that tenant or tenants is isn't quite clear, but based on drawings by Reztark Design Studio, it will have some open air patio space and be built with two floors.

Mitchell's permanently closed on January 1, 2019.
North American Properties said it will spend $100 million,to upgrade the mall and add a new mix of food, retail and entertainment destinations, but no new tenants have been announced yet.
Over the next year and a half, Cincinnati-based North American plans to re-configure the mall's physical footprint to better take advantage of the panoramic views of the river and Downtown.
Plans also include more parking and a new network of pedestrian walkways that will allow better flow to nearby hotels, apartments and other mixed-use developments, such as the Ovation site under development just west of the mall.
