about us

Newport Property Construction is a leading provider of building and construction services. As a full service General Contractor, providing a full spectrum of resources and skilled attention required to successfully manage any project. The company specializes in the following areas:

Newport’s story truly began in 2003 when Mr. Rodriguez purchased a single duplex in South Florida. At that time, Newport Property Ventures, LLC, as the company was initially named, owned and managed numerous properties on the Biscayne corridor in Miami, FL. Newport paved the way for the beautification and enrichment of the under-performing real estate in this area. The savvy management and renovation decisions converted these properties into income-producing assets that attracted the attention of real estate investors. Many of the properties were later acquired by prominent developers who have transformed this unique area of Miami. This area, adjacent to Downtown Miami, is now the beautiful and highly sought-after “Edgewater”. Soon thereafter, Newport worked to reposition over 10,000 units in multifamily communities across the country.

In 2008, the company expanded to commercial construction projects to include mixed-use spaces, executive office buildings and higher education. Newport is one of the preferred vendors for Florida International University, having completed hundreds of projects on campus, including many high-profile projects for the FIU athletics facilities.

When Newport broke ground on its first luxury residential home, the company was determined to make a mark in the industry. The waterfront home on North Bay Road in Miami Beach was 20,000 square feet and sold for a record-breaking $30M. Most recently, Newport was featured on the cover of Architectural Digest with Alex Rodriguez’ home in Coral Gables. Newport headlined as part of the Dream Team who pulled together the vision of the legendary architect on this project. The property was heralded as a “Design Triumph” across the industry for the indoor-outdoor feel of the home that also served as a secluded sanctuary.

From these ventures, Newport Property Construction has emerged as a trusted industry leader in the commercial, multi-family and luxury residential arenas. While the complexity and size of many projects has grown, Newport has maintained a multi-faceted approach to the business and continues to raise the bar with each project.
