The condo board of the Trump Plaza in Florida has voted to remove the Trump name from the building in response to the Capitol insurrection.
The board made the vote on January 19th to rename the 221-unit condominium in downtown West Palm Beach.
The voting was not the first time the board tried to disassociate themselves with former President Donald Trump. The board has also removed the signs bearing the Trump name..
According to the residents, the January 6 insurrection was their breaking point and urged them to finally change the name.
“It’s been a long time in coming. Most of us are relieved that the name will finally be off the buildings,” said an unnamed owner.
In order for the condo to legally change its name, two-thirds of the residents agree to measure.
Since the death of George Floyd, the condo has been on the receiving end negative sentiment, which only worsened because of the insurrection.
Burt Minkoff, a real estate agent with Douglas Elliman on Palm Beach said the rebranding of the condo is a smart move and would remove the stigma from it.
