Keep Brevard Beautiful’s (KBB) South Action Team presented the “We Noticed” Beautification Award to Northshore Development for the newly developed Aqua Palm Bay Apartments, located within the Bayfront Community Redevelopment District in Palm Bay on February 10. This unique apartment community features four-story mid-rise buildings, which have been selectively situated to maximize views and accessibility to natural areas and water features within the community and the intercoastal waterway to create a one-of-a-kind atmosphere. The complex includes amenities such as a beach-style entry pool, fitness center, central stormwater pond with eco-friendly water treatment, billiards and entertainment area, clubhouse, electric charging station and more. Despite being new to Brevard County, they were nominated in 2020 for the Aurora Award for Best Interior Merchandising, Community Amenity or Clubhouse and have already broken ground on their next housing venture in Palm Bay. With the help of REW Landscaping, Aqua Palm Bay Apartments created a resort-style area filled with Florida-friendly plants in their stormwater pond and throughout their grounds. The extra steps taken can be seen across their beautiful landscape filled with palm trees, cypress, magnolias, coonties, hibiscus, dozens of bird of paradise, and so many more.
Attending the “We Noticed” presentation were City of Palm Bay City Manager Suzanne Sherman, Growth Management Director Laurence Bradley, and other employees; Aqua Palm Bay Apartments’ Business Manager Vanessa Potter; and South Action Team trustees. The South Action Team recognizes property- and business-owners throughout the southern part of Brevard County year-round for their efforts to beautify the area and environmentally improve their landscaping. The program has been in operation since the 1990’s and has recognized dozens of properties throughout the County.
