Port Warwick

Port Warwick is an award-winning, mixed-use community located off Jefferson Avenue in Newport News, VA. At the center of the community lies Styron Square, a three-acre green space designed after the great squares of London. Port Warwick was named after native and Pulitzer prize-winning author William Styron and created and developed by Bobby Freeman, President of Tower Park Corporation and Chief Executive Officer of Tower Park Management Corporation.

In addition to shopping and dining in the community, over 1,500 people call Port Warwick home, living in houses, townhomes, live-above homes, apartments and condominiums.

The Port Warwick Conservancy, the property owners’ association, and the Port Warwick Foundation sponsor a series of events and activities throughout the year, from a weekly summer outdoor concert series to an annual arts and sculpture festival to a Holiday Tree Lighting event.
