Bel View Apartments, 1963 and 2012
In 1963, a new apartment complex was built at 4311 W. North A St. in Westshore Palms. The 10,500-square-foot structure was named the Bel View Apartments and records show it was sold by Joe and Paul Militello for $127,000. The building contained 16 air-conditioned units and was said to be in the area of a new Maas Brothers shopping center site. Still standing today, the building, painted a sea foam green color, looks Florida retro. Public records reveal the 2012 value as about $340,000.
