Newport on the Levee (The Levee) originally rose on the south bank of the Ohio River in 2001, playing a key role in the renaissance of Newport, Kentucky’s, once-seedy Monmouth Business District, the surrounding area historically known for its gambling halls and Vegas-style nightclubs. Twenty years after its initial debut, North American Properties (NAP) completed a multimillion-dollar redevelopment of the mixed-use destination, transforming it into a walkable, family-friendly entertainment hub. These efforts led The Levee to be recognized as the NAIOP Cincinnati Retail/Mixed-Use/Hospitality Deal of the Year and the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce ImageMaker recipient in 2021.
Today, The Levee is home to a collection of unique-to-Newport retailers and restaurants, national experience-driven brands, a food hall, Class A office suites, a 20-screen AMC Theater, the Newport Aquarium, and over 200,000 square feet of community gathering space. Boasting plentiful skyline views, direct access to the Purple People Bridge and Riverfront Commons trail, and close proximity to popular attractions like the Great American Ball Park, The Levee is the perfect backdrop for making photo-worthy memories.
