Part of Collins Avenue, where the Champlain Towers South stood, will be renamed “’98 Points of Light Road” for those who died when a 12-story condominium collapsed, Gov. Ron DeSantis said.
As he marked the anniversary of the tragedy last month, DeSantis recalled how the inhabitants of the doomed tower represented all walks of life — young professionals, families, retirees, people from all different faiths.
“So every time people drive by, they’re going to be reminded that there were great people that lived in that tower and that this is a tragedy that wounded this community and this state,” he said.
