The Newport

1530 Spruce Street | Philadelphia, PA 19102

In 1897, at nine stories, THE NEWPORT was one of Philadelphia’s earliest high-rises. Today, it is a boutique apartment building of 46 delightful units. The moderate size provides a more personal and inviting atmosphere than that of larger complexes, yet with all the amenities. THE NEWPORT is an historic building in the Rittenhouse-Fitler Historic District.

In May 2009 THE NEWPORT was presented with an Historic Achievement Award from The Preservation Alliance of Greater Philadelphia for excellence in the restoration of the property.

Location, Location, Location
THE NEWPORT is in a residential area in the very heart of center city Philadelphia, at the edge of the commercial district. Located at the corner of Sixteenth and Spruce Streets, it’s location is outstanding. All the reasons Center City people like to live in Center City apply particularly well here since shopping, cultural centers, offices, transportation and an abundance of gourmet restaurants are literally steps away. And the recent opening of the Kimmel Center For The Performing Arts, just one block away, further enhances an already superior location. In the booming Philadelphia area there have been a number of high-priced condominium buildings completed within the past few years, but few, if any, have a location equal to that of THE NEWPORT.
THE NEWPORT has the thorough charm of an earlier age. It was erected in the Victorian age with architectural details not seen in later buildings. The copper-clad bay-windows, or oriels, the arched stained-glass windows, the elliptical windows, the copper cornices at the fourth and at the eighth floors, the base of large brownstone, the impressive arched entrances, the high ceilings, the marble stair with brass handrail, etc., all contribute to the charm and warmth of “a great place to come home to”.
Multi-Million Dollar Modernization

The original charm of THE NEWPORT has been restored. But the lifestyle of 1897 has been discarded. After a multi-million dollar total renovation, THE NEWPORT is now a building with all the amenities and conveniences any new building can furnish:

  • New security system: see your guests at the front door on your cell phone
  • Totally New Elevator (with added stop to basement)
  • New Free Fitness Center
  • New Heating/Air-Conditioning System, with year-round thermostatic temperature control
  • Hi-Speed Internet Access Available (Optional)
  • New Lobby
  • Newly Renovated Apartments (Some with washer/drier and two bathrooms.)
  • New Laundry Room, with convenient bill-changer
  • New Office

And some improvements, which contribute to the smooth functioning and safety of any building, but which you may not notice, are:

  • New Electric Service
  • New Domestic Hot-Water Heating System
  • New Roof
  • New Emergency Lighting
  • Updated Fire-Alarm System
  • New & Restored Plumbing

THE NEWPORT is owner-managed. As owners, we are totally involved; we are much more interested in the operation of our properties than the typical broker or agent. The management and the staff of THE NEWPORT are professional and attentive to tenant concerns, which makes THE NEWPORT stand apart from many of the other Rittenhouse Square apartments for rent in Center City, Philadelphia.

Free Fitness Center

THE NEWPORT’S free Fitness Center is unusual in the respect that such well equipped centers are usually found only in much larger buildings when found at all. The equipment provided has been selected to provide for exercising the entire body. The cardio, and resistance-training equipment includes:

  • Two ellipticals
  • Two treadmills
  • One recumbent bicycle
  • One leg extension
  • One leg curl
  • One leg press
  • One back-extension
  • One cable crossover with adjustable pulleys
  • One adjustable bench

The cable crossover is a very versatile and flexible machine. By itself it can be used to exercise most sections of the body. It is excellent for all upper body workouts.

The Fitness Center is open to residents 24/7.
