Official Groundbreaking Ceremony

Thursday, May 27, 2019


IT'S TIME! We've been reimagining, recreating, revamping Newport on the Levee and finally, the day has come to begin the long-awaited redevelopment! You've seen the initial renderings and offered your feedback. Now, be part of the kick off this Thursday, June 27 at 6:00 for the Official Groundbreaking Ceremony on the Aquarium Plaza. 


The evening will begin with a welcome from Barney Estes (Newport on the Levee), remarks from David Spaulding (Turner Construction), Mayor Jerry Peluso (City of Newport), and Tim Perry (North American Properties) followed by the first "swing" marking the demolition of the West Plaza Building (previously Mitchell's Fish Market). 


Then, stick around for DJ Drowsy immediately following the first "swing" and Soul Pocket at Summer Music on the Levee at 7:00, with beer and hard seltzer selections from Braxton Brewing Company and wine and cocktail selections from the Newport Aquarium. Food TBD. 


A celebration among all of our guests and neighbors, we hope you'll join us during this special day for the future of Newport on the Levee!
