Newport on the Levee offers rent-free retail space for local vendors

The new owner of Newport on the Levee is planning an expanded holiday experience that will include activating every available space in the retail development.

North American Properties will host Winter Wonder on the Levee starting Nov. 23. The experience will include a Light Up the Levee event along with shopping and entertainment opportunities.

To create a unique shopping experience, NAP is offering a select number of rent-free retail spaces to Greater Cincinnati specialty retailers, makers, artists, eateries and other purveyors.

The spaces, which range from 700 to 7,800 square feet, will be part of the Village at the Levee in the Gallery building and be available for reservations through Nov. 20. Retailers will be able to activate the spaces Nov. 23 through Dec. 28.

Interested vendors can submit applications on the Levee website or email for more information. Accepted vendors will be announced as they’re confirmed.

“We are in a unique position this year where we are preparing for the transformation coming in 2020 and have a limited number of retail spaces available for the holiday season,” NAP partner and chief investment officer Tim Perry said in a statement. “Newport on the Levee has always been a community-driven hub. To show our profound appreciation for the artisans and makers in our region and to offer our holiday guests gifts and merchandise they can’t find anywhere else, we decided to create an amazing popup experience surrounding our holiday programming.”

Downtown-based developer NAP acquired Newport on the Levee at the end of 2018 and is in the process of remaking the 360,000-square-foot property that’s expected to result in a more than $100 million investment.
