May 14, 2022 — On the night of June 24, 2021, a high-rise apartment building, located on the northern edge of Miami Beach, partially collapsed. This tragedy, which claimed nearly 100 victims, aroused fear and horror. The destruction of Champlain Towers South, a 12-storey tower built in 1981 and held in divided co-ownership, led to a class action lawsuit involving several defendants, including the developer and contractors of a nearby construction project. According to the plaintiffs, the construction of another condo tower in 2016 generated vibrations and contributed to the collapse of the building by destabilizing its foundations. Other defendants included building professionals (architects and engineers) who had been hired by the co-property, as well as the town of Surfside itself.
