PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania – July 8th, 2016 - LeaseUp™ recently announced it has been retained by Al Shapiro Properties of Philadelphia PA, ( to provide exclusive leasing for The Newport apartments.

Originally constructed in 1897, this historic and architecturally unique property has undergone a multi-million dollar total renovation. The lifestyle of 1897 has been discarded and The Newport is now a building with all the amenities and conveniences any new building can furnish.

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, the arched stained-glass windows, the elliptical windows, the copper cornices, the impressive arched entrances, the high ceilings, the marble stair with brass handrail, all contribute to the charm and warmth of historic building.

“Shaprio’s renovation of this magnificent building is a truly a great blend of historic charm and modern touches” says Justin Cleary, Principal, LeaseUp. “The Newport is a perfect combination of Brownstone living, yet with the conveniences of a larger apartment building. It’s really the best of both worlds”.
