Champlain Towers North: In collapsed building’s twin, most residents staying put

This has made some residents of Champlain Towers North worried enough to leave, though most have remained, saying they are confident their almost 40-year-old, 12-story building is better maintained. They say their building doesn’t have the same problems with cracking in support beams and in the pool area that 2018 engineering reports show the south tower had.

The collapse of Champlain Towers South in the town of Surfside on Thursday has drawn attention to older high-rise buildings throughout South Florida and prompted Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava to order a 30-day audit of whether such buildings under her jurisdiction are complying with a required recertification of structural integrity at 40 年. She said she wants any issues raised by inspections to be immediately addressed. She’s also urged municipalities within the county to follow suit. マイアミ, 例えば, has launched a 45-day audit of buildings six stories and higher that are 40 years old or older.
