Residents of a three story condominium complex on the Indian River in Tequesta are homeless after the building was found to be unsafe by village inspectors.

An inspection on Wednesday revealed significant cracking and deterioration of support columns in the building located at 200 Waterway Rd. and all residents were ordered to vacate until further notice.

The condo’s Homeowners Association has hired a company to bring the building up to code however there is no timeline for how long the repairs will take.

The HOA is also helping residents with relocation assistance.

Earlier this month a building in North Miami Beach was condemned due to structural deficiencies and 55 families were displaced as a result.

Local building officials have stepped up inspections and enforcement actions following the Champlain Towers disaster in Surfside in June of 2021 where 98 people were killed when the south tower collapsed in the middle of the night.
