This is 20-20 hindsight but good nonetheless

At least it may prevent future disasters - from Miami, Fl station WPLG:

North Miami Beach condo ordered shut, 300 residents need to leave immediately, city says
A North Miami Beach condominium building has been ordered immediately closed by the city’s building and zoning department.

Now, about 300 residents in the Crestview Towers Condominium have to find somewhere to go. They have been told that they need to evacuate the building by Friday night.

According to a press release from the city, the condo at 2025 N.E. 164th St. is structurally and electrically unsafe.

The release stated:
“Following the tragic collapse of Champlain Towers South on June 24, North Miami Beach immediately launched a thorough review of all condo high-rise buildings to determine if they are in compliance with county and city 40-year recertification process and certified as safe for occupancy. Today, Crestview Towers submitted a recertification report dated Jan. 11, 2021, in which an engineer retained by the association board concluded that the 156-unit building was structurally and electrically unsafe.”

And of course, there is this little bundle of joy headed their way - meet Hurricane Elsa:

Wind is probably not going to be too bad when (if) it hits Miami but a couple inches of rain will do "wonders" for cracked structural concrete.  The people who put up these sub-standard buildings, I really wonder how they can sleep at night knowing that the end result of their corruption is people losing their lives.
