Update: Camelot Apartments owned by out-of-state group

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

We now know who owns a Jackson apartment complex that is facing hundreds of code violations.

The Camelot apartment complex on Robinson Road is owned by Al Belmonte of Wesley Realty Group in Evanston, Illinois. Belmonte and Wesley Realty own other complexes in the Jackson area, including Beauregard Village in Clinton.

The rental properties shown on the Wesley Realty website are not in Mississippi. There's no mention of the Camelot Apartments, which have fallen into considerable disrepair. Code violations include missing porch railings, loose stairways, broken air conditioning vents, crumbling concrete, and more.

The City of Jackson says the owner is working with code enforcement to fix the multitude of problems.

Belmonte has not returned our phone call or email for comment.
