Born: 12/29/1868

Louis Levi was born in Baltimore, MD, the son of Joseph and Babetta (Apfel) Levi. He was educated in the public schools of Baltimore, followed by classes at the City College of Baltimore. He then received his degree in architecture from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and returned to Baltimore to practice. Levi came to Philadelphia around 1912 and remained at least through 1935, with an office at 1232 Real Estate Trust Building in 1924/25. He designed a number of buildings in Philadelphia, but still retained his ties to Baltimore's business community and provided a number of stores there as well.
