Florida apartment in North Miami evacuated after report says it's structurally unsafe

Residents were forced to evacuate an apartment building in North Miami Beach after it was deemed structurally unsafe on Tuesday afternoon, according to CNN.

Bayview 60 Homes on 3800 Northeast 168th Street in Florida was evacuated after the owner called for the city to take action following an inspection done on the building.

The owner hired Bronislaus P. Taurinski Structural Engineers for the inspection, and a report came back citing a deflection in the elevation of the “building’s floor slabs.”

Built in 1972, the apartment building was already undergoing repairs since July, 2021 to prepare for it’s 50-year recertification inspection, according to NBC6.

Residents were told on Monday they had to leave the apartment but would be able to return on Tuesday morning for their belongings.

The move follows another North Miami apartment building called Crestview Towers that evacuated its residents. A report showed the building was also structurally damaged.

Bayview sits just three miles north from the Surfside condo tower that partially collapsed on June 24, 2021.

It was a tragic incident killed 98 people when inspections discovered the building was destabilized and in many violations for living situations.
