The Westover Arms was designed in the postwar modern style, an evolution of Art Deco that retained the overall symmetry but updated the decorative details, such as the “boxed” and banded windows and zigzag “eyebrow.” The yellow brickwork used on the front facade and window spandrels was a building material seldom seen on Miami Beach buildings prior to the postwar boom. Utilizing architect Charles Benson's design, developers Ismael Perera and Herminio Menendez performed a complete interior and exterior restoration that began in 2008
