Groundbreaking ceremony, a new 'Vue' for Newport riverfront

A new 'vue' will be seen from Newport's riverfront in the next year or so.

Capital Investment Group, Inc. held a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday morning for the second phase of construction on their residential development, called 'Vue 180'.

Once completed, the $15.6 million dollar project will have 93 rental units above a structured parking area.

Capital Investment Group, Inc. is a Cincinnati company that previously developed Newport's SouthShore Condominiums, located on Riverboat Row.

The development site for Vue 180 is located just beside the SouthShore Condominiums.

The complex is said to be completed within a year to fifteen months.
