NEWPORT, R.I. — NKF Capital Markets has orchestrated the sale of the Newport Grand Casino in Newport for $10.1 million. NKF represented the seller, Twin River Management Group, in the transaction. The buyer was Carpionato Group. Initially serving as an arena for jai alai, Newport Grand added slot machines in 1992 and was renovated in 2008 to add space for a full casino. The property will continue to operate as the Newport Grand Casino until the gaming facility relocates to Tiverton, Rhode Island later this year. The buyer plans to redevelop the 23.5-acre site into a mixed-use project.
