Belview Heights is a neighborhood in Birmingham's Five Points West community. It is bounded on the west by Fairfield across Avenue H, on the southeast by the Green Acres and Central Park neighborhoods across Bessemer Road and Avenue Q, to the north by the Ensley Highlands neighborhood across Warrior Road, and to the northwest by the Ensley neighborhood across I-20/59.
Belview Heights was first developed in 1910 by the Tennessee Coal, Iron and Railroad Company as a residential district for the families of supervisors at its steel plant in Corey. Robert Jemison Jr's Corey Land Company surveyed the street grid as a continuation of nearby Ensley's.
The Tudor Revival style Birmingham Fire Station No. 24, constructed in 1915 at Avenue Q and 44th Street, set the tone for a boom on new house construction in the 1920s, giving the entire neighborhood a Tudor Revival character which continued to expand even during the depths of the Great Depression. Later subdivisions in Belview Heights were developed by Newman Waters, Sr.
